Famous quotes containing the word crimes:

    Some crimes get honor and renown by being committed with more pomp, by a greater number, and in a higher degree of wickedness than others. Hence it is that public robberies, plunderings, and sackings have been looked upon as excellencies and noble achievements, and the seizing of whole countries, however unjustly and barbarously, is dignified with the glorious name of gaining conquests.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Parents shall not be put to death for their children, nor shall children be put to death for their parents; only for their own crimes may persons be put to death.
    Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 24:16.

    ... how have I used rivers, how have I used wars
    to escape writing of the worst thing of all—
    not the crimes of other, not even our own death,
    but the failure to want our freedom passionately enough
    so that blighted elms, sick rivers, massacres would seem
    mere emblems of that desecration of ourselves?
    Adrienne Rich (b. 1929)
