Famous quotes containing the word criminal:

    No political party can ever make prohibition effective. A political party implies an adverse, an opposing, political party. To enforce criminal statutes implies substantial unanimity in the community. This is the result of the jury system. Hence the futility of party prohibition.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The criminal is quite frequently not equal to his deed: he belittles and slanders it.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    The attorneys defending a criminal are rarely artists enough to turn the beautiful ghastliness of his deed to his advantage.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
