Crime & Punishment

The desire of one man to live on the fruits of another's labor is the original sin of the world.

Nothing has been better proven than this maxim: that one succeeds in having too much only by causing others not to have enough.

Consider not action but the spirit of the action. It is the intention, not the deed, wherein the merit or praise of the doer consists.

The intention makes the crime.

He who allows oppression shares the crime.

Poverty is the mother of crime.

Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime.

The crime and punishment ritual is part of our lives.

When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional beliefs to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for commission of every other crime. Infidelity does not consist in believing or in disbelieving, it consists in professing to believe what one does not believe.
