Famous quotes containing the word plunder:

    Alliance. In international politics, the union of two thieves who have their hands so deeply inserted in each other’s pockets that they cannot separately plunder a third.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    True, we’re not great thieves, like the nobles. Our robberies are petty compared to the wholesale plunder of the nation.
    Sonya Levien (1895–1960)

    Actually we are a vulgar, pushing mob whose passions are easily mobilized by demagogues, newspaper men, religious quacks, agitators and such like. To call this a society of free peoples is blasphemous. What have we to offer the world besides the superabundant loot which we recklessly plunder from the earth under the maniacal delusion that this insane activity represents progress and enlightenment?
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
