crime

A Quote by John Maynard, Baron Keynes of Tilton on crime, disease, life, love, money, and possessions

The love of money as a possession - as distinguished from the love of money as a means to the enjoyments and realities of life - will be recognized for what it is, a somewhat disgusting morbidity, one of those semi-criminal, semi-pathological propensities which one hands over with a shudder to the specialists in mental disease.
