murder

A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on unorthodoxy, individualism, murder, the individual, individual versus society, and the threat of unorthodox behavior

"Consider the matter dispassionately, Mr. Foster, and you will see that no offence is so heinous as unorthodoxy of behaviour. Murder kills only the individual-- and after all, wha is an individual? ". . . ." We can make a new one with the greatest of ease-- as many as we like. Unorthodoxy threatens more than the life of a mere individual; it strikes at Society itself."

Aldous Huxley (1894 - 1963)

Gold is worse poison to a man's soul, doing more murders in this loathsome world, than any mortal drug.

A Quote by Wilfred Owen on boldness, bravery, day, death, dreams, home, improvement, justice, laughter, murder, stupidity, war, and wives

The Dead-Beat He dropped, - more sullenly than wearily, Lay stupid like a cod, heavy like meat, And none of us could kick him to his feet; -Just blinked at my revolver, blearily; -Didn't appear to know a war was on, Or see the blasted trench at which he stared. 'I'll do 'em in,' he whined, 'if this hand's spared, I'll murder them, I will.' A low voice said, 'It's Blighty, p'raps, he sees; his pluck's all gone, Dreaming of all the valiant, that aren't dead: Bold uncles, smiling ministerially; Maybe his brave young wife, getting her fun In some new home, improved materially. It's not these stiffs have crazed him; nor the Hun.' We sent him down at last, out of the way. Unwounded; - stout lad, too, before that strafe. Malingering? Stretcher-bearers winked, 'Not half!' Next day I heard the Doc.'s well-whiskied laugh: 'That scum you sent last night soon died. Hooray!'

A Quote by Wilfred Owen on death, heaven, laughter, life, murder, myth, and soldiers

The Young Soldier It is not death Without hereafter To one in dearth Of life and its laughter, Nor the sweet murder Dealt slow and even Unto the martyr Smiling at heaven: It is the smile Faint as a (waning) myth, Faint, and exceeding small On a boy's murdered mouth.

A Quote by unknown on challenge, family, jobs, kindness, murder, vices, and work

We're like a real family. Opinionated, argumentative, holding grudges, challenging each other. We challenge each other to be better than we are. That kind of thing doesn't happen at barbecues, at ball games, it happens on the job we're supposed to do. On the case. Put down the murder. The work itself is the most important thing. What we do is important. We speak for those that can no longer speak for themselves. And you're not gonna ever find anything like that anywhere. Not in vice, and not patrolling the grounds at Disneyland.
