37 Crime Quotes from Literature

War makes thieves of many honest folk. ~ A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin "And what, incidentally, do you think integrity is? The ability not to pick a watch out of your neighbor's pocket? No, it's not as easy as that. If that were all, I'd say ninety-five percent of humanity were honest, upright men. Only, as you can see, they aren't. Integrity is the ability to stand by an idea. That presupposes the ability to think. Thinking is something one doesn't borrow or pawn." ~ The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand The fox barks not when he would steal the lamb. ~ Henry VI, Part Two by William Shakespeare "Robbery on the king's highway, my young friend, is a very dangerous and ticklish occupation. It is pleasant, I have no doubt, while it lasts; but like many other pleasures in this transitory world, it seldom lasts long." ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens The bell upon the roof that had told the tale of murder to the midnight wind, became a very phantom whose voice would raise the listener's hair on end; and every leafless bough that nodded to another, had its stealthy whispering of the crime. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens "I must go to the window and get some air. Shall I jump out? No; it disfigures one so, and the coroner's inquest lets so many people see it." ~ Armadale by Wilkie Collins To tear treasure out of the bowels of the land was their desire, with no more moral purpose at the back of it than there is in burglars breaking into a safe. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
With most miraculous organ. ~ Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare He was among men who cloaked their lives with religion in order to follow their real purposes unseen of men. ~ Secret Worship by Algernon Blackwood Other sins only speak; murder shrieks out. The element of water moistens the earth, But blood flies upwards and bedews the heavens. ~ The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster
