The hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang that jurymen may dine.
The hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang that jury-men may dine.Alexander Pope
This is a righteous judgement of God upon these barbarous wretches, who have imbrued their hands in so much innocent blood.Oliver Cromwell
For when a nation becomes civilized, if it does not drop human sacrifices altogether, it at least selects as victims only such wretches as would be put to death at any rate. Thus the killing of a god may sometimes come to be confounded with the execution of a criminal.james frazer
Look, ye wretches, take your fill of the fair sight.Plato
I have political enemies, of course men who, influenced by party feeling, are not above attacking methods and possibly my official reputation; but personal ones wretches willing to stab me in my homelife and affections, that I can not believe. My life has been as an open book. I have harmed no man knowingly and, as far as I know, no man has ever cherished a wish to injure me.
The hungry judges soon the sentence sign, And wretches hang, that jurymen may dine.Alexander Pope

Look, ye wretches, take your fill of the fair sight.
There is not a negro from the coast of Africa who does not, in this respect, possess a degree of magnanimity which the soul of his sordid master is too often scarce capable of conceiving. Fortune never exerted more cruelly her empire over mankind, than when she subjected those nations of heroes to the refuse of the jails of Europe, to wretches who possess the virtues neither of the countries which they come from, nor of those which they go to, and whose levity, brutality, and baseness, so justly expose them to the contempt of the vanquished.Adam Smith
