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
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
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
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.
Welcome, thou kind deceiver! Thou best of Thieves; who with an easy key, Dost open life, and, unperceived by us, Even steal us from ourselves.john dryden
Political economy thus does not recognize the unoccupied worker, the working man so far as he is outside this work relationship. Swindlers, Thieves, beggars, the unemployed, the starving, poverty- stricken and criminal working man, are figures which do not exist for political economy, but only for other eyes; fordoctors, judges,grave-diggers,beadles,etc.Theyare ghostly figures outsidethe domain of political economy.
Why grab possessions like Thieves, or divide them like socialists when you can ignore them like wise men?natalie clifford barney
The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where Thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason.hunter s. thompson
These Yankee politicians are the lowest race of Thieves in existence.
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
We fall short when we ascribe all the modes of happiness to walking in paths of rectitude. There are joys which only tramps and Thieves know.henry s. haskins
Boughs are daily rifled By the gusty Thieves, And the book of Nature Getteth short of leaves.thomas hood
We must frankly confess, then, using our empirical common sense and ordinary practical prejudices, that in the world that actually is, the virtues of sympathy, charity, and non-resistance may be, and often have been, manifested in excess. ... You will agree to this in general, for in spite of the Gospel, in spite of Quakerism, in spite of Tolstoi, you believe in fighting fire with fire, in shooting down usurpers, locking up Thieves, and freezing out vagabonds and swindlers.william james

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.

Anarchy means no domination or authority of one man over another, yet you call that “disorder.” A system which advocates no such “order” as shall require the services of rogues and Thieves to defend it you call “disorder.”
The more laws and order are made prominent, the more Thieves and robbers there will be.
