Excessively precise economic analysis can lead to assessing everything in terms of its easily measurable melt value – the value that thieves get from stealing copper wiring from isolated houses, that vandals got from tearing down Greek temples for the lead joints holding the marble blocks together, that shortsighted timber companies get from liquidating their forests. The standard to insist on is live value. What is something worth when it's working?
A plague upon it when Thieves cannot be true one to another!william shakespeare
If every one in the world will love universally; states not attacking one another; houses not disturbing one another; Thieves and robbers becoming extinct; emperor and ministers, fathers and sons, all being affectionate and filial -- if all this comes to pass the world will be orderly. Therefore, how can the wise man who has charge of governing the empire fail to restrain hate and encourage love? So, when there is universal love in the world it will be orderly, and when there is mutual hate in the world it will be disorderly.mozi
Angelo : Thieves for their robbery have authority When judges steal themselves.william shakespeare
We cannot keep Thieves from looking in at our windows, but we need not give them entertainment with open doors.thomas adam
The UFO research and investigation business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where Thieves and pimps of corrupt ideology run free, agenda dictates, delusion is rampant and ignorance prevails. The infestation of wrongful motivation and the beggarly depths of belief reign supreme amidst a universal disregard for truth and factual actuality... where good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side . . .kenny young
Cut off the hands of Thieves. It is an exemplary punishment from God.
Beauty provoketh Thieves sooner than gold.
Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.
Nouns of number, or multitude, such as Mob, Parliament, Rabble, House of Commons, Regiment, Court of King's Bench, Den of Thieves, and the like.william cobbett
Society always issues an ultimatum to the innovator; conform to this world or expect the reward of a heretic or a traitor. Every generation metes out substantially the same punishment to those who fall far below and those who rise high above its standards. Thieves and prophets of a new day rot in the same foul dungeon; murderers and the Savior of mankind agonize on adjacent crosses.
Thieves respect property; they merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.gilbert keith chesterton
Why grab possessions like Thieves, or divide them like socialists when you can ignore them like wise men?natalie clifford barney
We're being ripped off and screwed by a bunch of liars, Thieves, crooks, and criminals, and they're not the folks below. Don't look in the streets; look in the corporate suites!jerry brown
Alas the Church of England! What with Popery on one hand, and schismatics on the other, how has she been crucified between two Thieves!Daniel Defoe
All are not Thieves that dogs bark at.
If you have a grateful heart (which is a miracle amongst you statesmen), show it by directing the bearer to the best wine in town, and pray let not this highest point of sacred friendship be performed slightly, but go about it with all due deliberation and care, as holy priests to sacrifice, or as discreet Thieves to the wary performance of burglary and shop-lifting. Let your well-discerning palate (the best judge about you) travel from cellar to cellar and then from piece to piece till it has lighted on wine fit for its noble choice and my approbation.wilmot, john, 2nd earl of rochester
Strange and predatory and truly dangerous, car Thieves and muggers they seem to jeopardize all our cherished concepts, even our self-esteem, our property rights, our powers of love, our laws and pleasures. The only relationship we seem to have with them is scorn or bewilderment, but they belong somewhere on the dark prairies of a country that is in the throes of self-discovery.john cheever
I would confront the Thieves, I thought, and the self-evident justice of my case would cause them to crumble before me. I don't know why I expected such extravagant results from the application of mere justice. That kind of calculation is seldom borne out by worldly events.robert charles wilson
We also concluded that any single-machine locks and keys, or special time-out and self-destruct programs, would be onerous to our best customers and not effective against clever Thieves. Because we could not devise practical physical security measures, we had to rely on the inherent honesty of our customers.
A discussion of the Armenian Genocide could reveal that this Turkish state was not a result of a war fought against the imperial powers, but, on the contrary, a product of the war against the Greek and Armenian minorities. It could show that a significant part of the National Forces consisted either of murderers who directly participated in the Armenian Genocide or of Thieves who had become rich by plundering Armenian possessions.
