Corruption quotes by Willa Cather
#1. Cavenaugh rubbed his hands together and smiled his sunny smile.
'I like that idea. It's reassuring. If we can have no secrets, it means we can't, after all, go so far afield as we might,' he hesitated, 'yes, as we might.'
Eastman looked at him sourly. 'Cavenaugh, when you've practiced law in New York for twelve years, you find that people can't go far in any direction, except-' He thrust his forefinger sharply at the floor.'Even in that direction, few people can do anything out of the ordinary. Our range is limited. Skip a few baths, and we become personally objectionable. The slightest carelessness can rot a man's integrity or give him ptomaine poisoning. We keep up only be incessant cleansing operations, of mind and body. What we call character, is held together by all sorts of tacks and strings and glue. ("Consequences") #Quote by Willa Cather
Corruption quotes by W.E.B. Du Bois
#2. Not even ten additional years of slavery could have done so much to throttle the thrift of the freedmen as the mismanagement and bankruptcy of the series of savings banks chartered by the Nation for their especial aid. #Quote by W.E.B. Du Bois
Corruption quotes by Ian Bremmer
#3. Deeper state intervention in an economy means that bureaucratic waste, inefficiency and corruption are more likely to hold back growth. #Quote by Ian Bremmer
Corruption quotes by William Shakespeare
#4. Antioch, farewell! for wisdom sees, those men blush not in actions blacker than the night, will 'schew no course to keep them from the light. One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke. Poison and treason are the hands of sin; Ay, and the targets to put off the shame. Then, lest my life be cropped to keep you clear, By flight I'll shun the danger which I fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Corruption quotes by Aruna Roy
#5. Through transparency we expose corruption, but then there is no action taken against the corrupt. #Quote by Aruna Roy
Corruption quotes by William Graham Sumner
#6. The lobby is the army of the plutocracy. #Quote by William Graham Sumner
Corruption quotes by Peter Kreeft
#7. Socrates: "The corruption of the best things are the worst things." Or, "The best, when corrupted, become the worst." As one of your English poets has said, "Lilies that fester smell far worse than weeds. #Quote by Peter Kreeft
Corruption quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#8. Some blame the drug companies. I don't. They are corporations. Their managers are ordered by law to make money for the corporation. They push a certain patent policy not because of ideals,but because it is the policy that makes them the most money. And it only makes them the most money because of a certain corruption within our political system-a corruption the drug companies are certainly not responsible for. The corruption is our own politicians' failure of integrity. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Corruption quotes by Sri Mulyani Indrawati
#9. Changing much-cherished bank secrecy laws is worth the effort. Corruption, tax evasion, and the capture of natural resource revenues undermine the rule of law, weaken the social fabric, erode citizens' trust in institutions, fuel conflict and insecurity, and hamper job creation. #Quote by Sri Mulyani Indrawati
Corruption quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#10. We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Corruption quotes by Brajendra Pandey
#11. As long as we are in the race... Corruption can never go away. #Quote by Brajendra Pandey
Corruption quotes by Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj
#12. I see corruption as a mortal enemy for young democracies. #Quote by Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj
Corruption quotes by Jimmy Dore
#13. and the reason why it took them so long to impeach him... or to start an impeachment trial, is because they had to find a crime that Trump committed that they were not also complicit in. #Quote by Jimmy Dore
Corruption quotes by August Kubizek
#14. Externally Hitler sill appears a drifting character: he has failed at school, has no employment, has been rejected by the Academy, is in Vienna for no clearly stated purpose, lives on a pittance eked out by painting postcards. But behind this shiftless exterior Kubizek constructs what must have been there, although it was not apparent to casual acquaintances: the character of the man who, from these beginnings, without any other natural advantages besides his own personality, became the most powerful and terrible tyrant and conqueror of modern history. Here we see - along with the incipient monomania, the repetitive cliches, and the Wagnerian romanticism of his later years - the early evidence of that unbreakable will power, that extraordinary self-confidence. We see the penniless, unemployed, unemployable young Hitler, at sixteen, confidently rebuilding in his imagination the city of Linz, as he was afterwards to rebuild it in fact, and never for a moment doubting that he would one day carry out these improbable plans; we see him exercising over an elderly Austrian upholsterer that irresistible hypnotic power with which he was afterwards to seduce a whole nation; we see him, in Vienna, fortifying himself against a corrupt and purposeless society by adopting an iron asceticism, like some ancient crusader guarding himself against corruption in a pagan world. And then turning to detail, we see in Vienna, when Kubizek was closest to him, the working of Hitler's mind as it feels #Quote by August Kubizek
Corruption quotes by David Mitchell
#15. But, overall, I concluded the young-hack-versus-corporate-corruption thriller had potential. (The Ghost of Sir Felix Finch whines, "But it's been done a hundred times before!" - as if there could be anything not done a hundred thousand times between Aristophanes and Andrew Void-Webber! As if Art is the What, not the How!) My #Quote by David Mitchell
Corruption quotes by Charlie LeDuff
#16. The only difference between Detroit and the Third World in terms of corruption is Detroit don't have no goats in the streets. #Quote by Charlie LeDuff
Corruption quotes by Robert Graves
#17. I happened to notice that among the men who had willingly presented themselves for jury-service was one whom I knew to be the father of seven children. Under a law of Augustus's he was exempt for the rest of his life; yet he had not pleaded for exemption or mentioned the size of his family. I told the magistrate: "Strike this man's name off. He's a father of seven." He protested: "But, Caesar, he has made no attempt to excuse himself." "Exactly," I said, "he wants to be a juryman. Strike him off." I meant, of course,that the fellow was concealing his immunity from what every honest man considered a very thankless and disagreeable duty and that he therefore was almost certain to have crooked intentions. Crooked jurymen could pick up a lot of money by bribes, for it was a commonplace that one interested juryman could sway the opinions of a whole bunch of uninterested ones; and the majority verdict decided a case. #Quote by Robert Graves
Corruption quotes by Joe Biden
#18. Fighting corruption is not just good governance. It's self-defense. It's patriotism. #Quote by Joe Biden
Corruption quotes by Oscar Wilde
#19. Come, I tell you. You have chattered enough about corruption. Now you shall look on it face to face! #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Corruption quotes by David Frum
#20. Power creates temptations, and that is true even for the smallest increments of power: the power of the building inspector, of the customs official, of the cop at the traffic stop. It took a lot of work by a lot of people over a long time to build even America's highly imperfect standards of public integrity. Undoing that work would be a far easier task. Corruption is the resting state of pubic affairs; integrity a painstaking, unceasing struggle against cultural inertia and political gravity. #Quote by David Frum
Corruption quotes by Anaxagoras
#21. Wrongly do the Greeks suppose that aught begins or ceases to be; for nothing comes into being or is destroyed; but all is an aggregation or secretion of preexisting things; so that all becoming might more correctly be called becoming mixed, and all corruption, becoming separate. #Quote by Anaxagoras
Corruption quotes by Kurt Bills
#22. In Minnesota, we hold our leaders to a higher standard. We demand that the men and women we send to Washington stand above reproach and steer clear of the web of corruption, kickbacks and special favors. #Quote by Kurt Bills
Corruption quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#23. I know now that all people hunger for a noble, unsullied past, that as sure as the black nationalist dreams of a sublime Africa before the white man's corruption, so did Thomas Jefferson dream of an idyllic Britain before the Normans, so do all of us dream of some other time when things were so simple. I know now that that hunger is a retreat from the knotty present into myth and that what ultimately awaits those who retreat into fairy tales, who seek refuge in the mad pursuit to be made great again, in the image of greatness that never was, is tragedy. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Corruption quotes by Dambisa Moyo
#24. Many Africans succumb to the idea that they can't do things because of what society says. Images of Africa are negative - war, corruption, poverty. We need to be proud of our culture. #Quote by Dambisa Moyo
Corruption quotes by Jacob Bronowski
#25. No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power. #Quote by Jacob Bronowski
Corruption quotes by Shannon A. Thompson
#26. What fueled this hatred? Society. #Quote by Shannon A. Thompson
Corruption quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#27. Loyalty in a critic is corruption. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Corruption quotes by Suzy Kassem
#28. The price for standing up for Truth, no matter how severe, will always be less than the price our souls will be penalized for not speaking up for our conscience. There is no greater crime in the universe than silencing your conscience. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Corruption quotes by Carl Paladino
#29. We are angry about paying the highest income taxes and property taxes in the nation and getting less and less for it. We are angry about our incompetent, dysfunctional government that pays no attention to the desires of the people. We are angry about the cesspool of corruption and conflicts of interests and self-dealing that is Albany. #Quote by Carl Paladino
Corruption quotes by Deepak Chopra
#30. The current perception I get from the evening news is that the world is dominated by human failure, crime, catastrophe, corruption, and tragedy. We are all tuning in to see how the human mind is evolving, but the media keeps hammering home the opposite, that the human mind is mired in darkness and folly. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Corruption quotes by Doris Lessing
#31. I watched his face put on that mask of bluff, goodnatured tolerance which is the mask of corruption in this particular time (for #Quote by Doris Lessing
Corruption quotes by Vikrmn
#32. Curing cancer affects good cells too in the short run but makes a life flourish in the long term. Curing corruption affects good people too in the short run but makes a nation flourish in the long term. #Quote by Vikrmn
Corruption quotes by William Easterly
#33. Any factor that breeds polarization will worsen policy, and thus cause lower growth. #Quote by William Easterly
Corruption quotes by Craig Schaefer
#34. Whatever the Garden had once been, now it was seething with corruption. Abundant life. It makes me laugh, in retrospect. Mr. Faust, did you know that there's a medical term for abundant life? For cellular life bursting out of control and running wild. #Quote by Craig Schaefer
Corruption quotes by Carlos Wallace
#35. We live in, arguably, the most developed, powerful country in the world, yet we are still unable to find a way to keep corrupt cops from killing black men. Why is that? #Quote by Carlos Wallace
Corruption quotes by Leonardo DiCaprio
#36. The truth is that I've always been fascinated with wealth in America. To me, it's been about the American dream and the corruption of that dream. #Quote by Leonardo DiCaprio
Corruption quotes by Jim Berg
#37. How frequently do we rush through our day making decision after decision, touching lives in this way or that, with no thought of what corruption has tainted those decisions? #Quote by Jim Berg
Corruption quotes by Srinivas Shenoy
#38. Forcible intercourse with one individual is called as "Rape" & Raping thousands of individuals at a time is called as "Politics". #Quote by Srinivas Shenoy
Corruption quotes by Nicholas Royle
#39. There has been corruption in the Belgian civil service and at government level for decades. The Royal family do what they can to hold things together, and they don't do a bad job. #Quote by Nicholas Royle
Corruption quotes by Anthony Doerr
#40. Isn't life a kind of corruption? A child is born, and the world sets in upon it. Taking things from it, stuffing things into it. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Corruption quotes by Anton Chekhov
#41. They are all very serious people with stern expressions on their faces. They discuss nothing but important matters and like to philosophize a great deal, while at the same time everyone can see that the workers are detestably fed, sleep without suitable bedding, thirty to forty in a room with bedbugs everywhere, the stench, the dampness, and the moral corruption ... Obviously all our fine talk has gone on simply to hoodwink ourselves and other people as well. Show me the day nurseries that they're talking about so much about. And where are the libraries? Why, they just write about nurseries and libraries in novels, while in fact not a single one even exists. What does exist is nothing but dirt, vulgarity, and a barbarian way of life ... I dislike these terribly serious faces, they frighten me, and I'm afraid of serious conversations, too. We'd be better off if we all would just shut up for a while! #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Corruption quotes by Tehmina Durrani
#42. To me, my husband was my son's murderer. He was also my daughter's molester. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was Bhai's destroyer, Amma Sain's tormentor, Ma's humbler and the people's exploiter. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us. #Quote by Tehmina Durrani
Corruption quotes by Aristotle.
#43. All Earthquakes and Disasters are warnings; there's too much corruption in the world #Quote by Aristotle.
Corruption quotes by Julian Sanchez
#44. [There is a] strong correlation between market freedom and lower government corruption
not terribly surprising, since the effect of increasing regulatory power is to shift 'cheating' from the private to the public sphere. #Quote by Julian Sanchez
Corruption quotes by Ahmed Chalabi
#45. The fight against corruption is not bound to high-profile arrests and high-profile investigations. The fight against corruption is successful if you prevent corruption taking place in the first place. #Quote by Ahmed Chalabi
Corruption quotes by Victoria Woodhull
#46. I believed that a husband must necessarily be an angel, impossible of corruption or contamination. #Quote by Victoria Woodhull
Corruption quotes by Mike Bartos
#47. The old joke is that psychiatrists are doctors who can't stand the sight of blood. Maybe they can't stand it, but if they work where I work, they damn well better get used to it.
At least surgeons and prizefighters get to wear gloves #Quote by Mike Bartos
Corruption quotes by Gregory Maguire
#48. It's the only condition I know. Bitter Love, Loneliness, contempt for corruption, blind hope. It's where I live. A permanent state of bereavement. This is nothing new. #Quote by Gregory Maguire
Corruption quotes by Ljupka Cvetanova
#49. Misfortune never comes singly. It's surrounded by bodyguards. #Quote by Ljupka Cvetanova
Corruption quotes by John Adams
#50. We should be unfaithful to ourselves if we should ever lose sight of the danger to our Liberties if anything partial or extraneous should infect the purity of our free, fair, virtuous, and independent elections. If an election is to be determined by a majority of a single vote, and that can be procured by a party through artifice or corruption, the Government may be the choice of a party for its own ends, not of the nation for the national good. #Quote by John Adams
Corruption quotes by Heather  Marsh
#51. Beware of your contribution to the growing banality of evil lest you yourself become a cog in the machinery of terror. #Quote by Heather Marsh
Corruption quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#52. In poor countries, officials receive explicit bribes; in D.C. they get the sophisticated, implicit, unspoken promise to work for large corporations #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Corruption quotes by Timothy Snyder
#53. After Tony [Judt]'s death, in August 2010, I toured to discuss the book we had written together, which he had entitle 'Thinking the Twentieth Century.' I realized as I traveled around the United States that its subject had been forgotten all too well. In hotel rooms, I watched Russian television toy with the traumatic American history of race, suggesting that Barack Obama had been born in Africa. It struck me as odd that the American entertainer Donald Trump picked up the theme not long thereafter. #Quote by Timothy Snyder
Corruption quotes by Arundhati Roy
#54. From being a dream, dams have become a very cynical corrupt enterprise; a way of letting governments lay their hands on huge sums of money; a way of centralizing resources; a way of snatching rivers away from the poor and giving them to the rich. And so in a sense they've become monuments to corruption. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Corruption quotes by Fiona Apple
#55. I have a very steadfast tendency to parent myself, to monitor my development into the person I want to be. I try to keep the corruption minimal. And though I advocate learning from my mistakes as much as making mistakes, I also try and make sure my mistakes do not cost other people. #Quote by Fiona Apple
Corruption quotes by Philip Zaleski
#56. He trusted the cosmos – but not necessarily the powers that held sway on earth. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Corruption quotes by Athanasius Of Alexandria
#57. The body of the Word, then, being a real human body, in spite of its having been uniquely formed from a virgin, was of itself mortal and, like other bodies, liable to death. But the indwelling of the Word loosed it from this natural liability, so that corruption could not touch it. Thus is happened that two opposite marvels took place at once: the death of all was consummated in the Lord's body; yet, because the Word was in it, death and corruption were in the same act utterly abolished. #Quote by Athanasius Of Alexandria
Corruption quotes by Sarah Vowell
#58. But there's still this combination of governmental ineptitude, shortsightedness, stinginess, corruption, and neglect that affected the Continentals before, during, and after Valley Forge that twenty-first-century Americans are not entirely unfamiliar with. While #Quote by Sarah Vowell
Corruption quotes by Ashraf Ghani
#59. We could form a government of national unity fighting corruption. The ordinary Afghan is sick and tired of it, because it's she or he that pays the price. #Quote by Ashraf Ghani
Corruption quotes by Roger L'Estrange
#60. There are ways of Deceiving the Eyes, as well as of Blinding them; so that the Cause of the Innocent must be remitted at last to that Great and Final Decision, where there is no longer any Place for Passion, Partiality, Corruption, or Error. But as to the Business of This World, when the Cocks and the Lambs lie at the Mercy of the Cats and Wolves, they must never expect better Quarter; especially where the Hearts Blood of the One, is the Nourishment and Entertainment of the Other. #Quote by Roger L'Estrange
Corruption quotes by Kenneth Lay
#61. If there is anything material and we're not reporting it, we'll be breaking the law. We don't break the law. #Quote by Kenneth Lay
Corruption quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#62. Honesty, for me, is usually the worst policy imaginable. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Corruption quotes by N. T. Wright
#63. When we say, "Jesus died for our sins" within a message about how to escape this nasty old world and go to heaven, it means one thing. When we say, "Jesus died for our sins" within a message about God the creator rescuing his creation from corruption, decay, and death, and rescuing us to be part of that, it means something significantly different. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Corruption quotes by David Vitter
#64. We do not need international help to stop corruption, we need strong Louisiana Leadership. #Quote by David Vitter
Corruption quotes by Vladimir Putin
#65. This gentleman has taken on the very fashionable theme of fighting corruption and I say again: In order to fight corruption you have to be crystal clear yourself. But there are problems here, and in this regard I unfortunately have a suspicion that this is just a way of getting votes and not a genuine desire to solve the problem. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Corruption quotes by Ed Brubaker
#66. It's because of my grandfather that I became a Young Avenger. But it's hard sometimes, to be a black kid carrying a name like "Patriot". I remember talking to Captain America about before he died, and he explained what Patriotism meant to him...
It wasn't about blindly supporting your government. It was about knowing what your country could be, what it should be... And trying to lead it there through your example. And holding it accountable when it failed. I remember he said: "There's noting patriotic about corruption or cover-ups... or defending them. But exposing them, well, that takes a hero. #Quote by Ed Brubaker
Corruption quotes by Siva Vaidhyanathan
#67. Derived from the Greek word anarchos, "without authority," anarchism denies law and considers property to be tyranny. Anarchists believe that human corruption results when differences are enforced through the maintenance of property and authority. Anarchists do not oppose or deny governance as long as it exists without coercion and the threat of violence. They oppose and deny the authority of the centralized state and propose governance through collaboration, deliberation, consensus, and common coordination. Justice can emerge from a sense of common purpose and practices of mutual aid, not the monopoly on violence that the state demands. While anarchism is commonly associated with bloody violence and rage, anarchists believe deeply in an ideology of love. #Quote by Siva Vaidhyanathan
Corruption quotes by Suzanne La Follette
#68. If experience teaches anything, it is that what the community undertakes to do is usually done badly. This is due in part to the temptation to corruption that such enterprises involve, but even more, perhaps, to the lack of personal interest on the part of those engaged in them. #Quote by Suzanne La Follette
Corruption quotes by B.C. Chase
#69. The human heart is evil, absolutely. That is why self-discipline is a virtue. Once you open the floodgates of corruption, there's no stopping it. #Quote by B.C. Chase
Corruption quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#70. I look upon parliamentary government as the noblest government in the world, and certainly one most suited to England. But without the discipline of political connection, animated by the principle of private honor, I feel certain that a popular assembly would sink before the power or the corruption of a minister. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Corruption quotes by Felix Adler
#71. Where the roots of private virtue are diseased, the fruit of public probity cannot but be corrupt. #Quote by Felix Adler
Corruption quotes by Douglas Preston
#72. If you're honest with yourself, you can still feel the terrible weight of time pressing on you; that awful, relentless, bodily corruption that is happening constantly to us all. #Quote by Douglas Preston
Corruption quotes by Dean Koontz
#73. She understood at least as well as I did what corruption and pitiless cruelty might be hidden behind the masks that some people wore. - Addison Goodheart pg 93 #Quote by Dean Koontz
Corruption quotes by Anthony Marais
#74. When a scientist splits an atom, the event is locked away like a jewel in a castle, funneling down to the public through a myriad of institutions. But when an artist stumbles upon the key to unleashing universal evil, the forbidden fruit of his painstaking labor is packaged and sold at every corner store from Bangor to Bangkok. I'm still unsure whether this is the result of a lack of respect for artists (compared to scientists) or the moral corruption of artists (compared to scientists). #Quote by Anthony Marais
Corruption quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#75. I'm pushing for citizen equality not because of some moral idea, but because this is the essential way to crack the corruption that now makes it so Washington can't work. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Corruption quotes by Vladimir Putin
#76. I'm sure corruption in Chechnya is minimal. #Quote by Vladimir Putin
Corruption quotes by Raymond Bonner
#77. The Philippines is a country in which a man of morals can't be president, in which a politician who hasn't been linked to any wrongdoing isn't assumed to be honest, but merely better at hiding his corruption. #Quote by Raymond Bonner
Corruption quotes by Andrew Thomas
#78. Today, corruption has won and justice has lost. I brought corruption cases in good faith involving powerful people, and the political and legal establishment blatantly covered up and retaliated by targeting my law license. #Quote by Andrew Thomas
Corruption quotes by John Jay Hooker
#79. Therefore, until the day I die, I am going to do what I can, regardless of the cost to me, to try to stop this awful corruption that is destroying our beloved democracy. #Quote by John Jay Hooker
Corruption quotes by James Wolfensohn
#80. The future is in our hands. We are not hapless bystanders. We can influence whether we have a planet of peace, social justice, equity, and growth or a planet of unbridgeable differences between peoples, wasted resources, corruption, and terror. #Quote by James Wolfensohn
Corruption quotes by David Hume
#81. That the corruption of the best thing produces the worst, is grown into a maxim, and is commonly proved, among other instances, by the pernicious effects of superstition and enthusiasm, the corruptions of true religion. #Quote by David Hume
Corruption quotes by Eric Hansen
#82. Government observers, keen on getting the Penan out of the valuable hardwood forests, have claimed that Penan health is poor and that they are malnourished. This is a ploy to get them settled so they can be controlled. Also, it is a source of embarrassment to the governments of Malaysia and Indonesia that in the 1980s, nomadic hunters are still roaming the jungles. This doesn't help the national image of a modern, developing country. #Quote by Eric Hansen
Corruption quotes by Ismail Haniyeh
#83. The victory of Hamas is not only based on the corruption of the Palestinian Authority. Hamas has a vision and a program, and this is the reason why the Palestinian people chose Hamas. However, there is no doubt that the corruption helped Hamas's victory. #Quote by Ismail Haniyeh
Corruption quotes by Bernard Bailyn
#84. That by 1774 the final crisis of the constitution, brought on by political and social corruption, had been reached was, to most informed colonists, evident; ... #Quote by Bernard Bailyn
Corruption quotes by Peter Hook
#85. 'Movement' sounded like Joy Division, but 'Power, Corruption & Lies' is the first New Order record. #Quote by Peter Hook
Corruption quotes by Wendell Berry
#86. The crisis of community has its source in the corruption of character. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Corruption quotes by Gary Johnson
#87. Government Picking Winners and Losers = Corruption. When government tries to pick winners and losers, the inevitable consequence is corruption. Yes, corruption. If not in a legal sense, certainly in a moral sense #Quote by Gary Johnson
Corruption quotes by John Maynard Keynes
#88. By this means the government may secretly and unobserved, confiscate the wealth of the people, and not one man in a million will detect the theft. #Quote by John Maynard Keynes
Corruption quotes by Gregory Feifer
#89. Vladimir Putin shot out of obscurity in 1999 by exploiting growing nostalgia for the USSR, fueled by the disappointment, uncertainty and crisis that brought Yeltsin's reform era to a shuddering halt. Once in power the following year, Putin set about building an authoritarian regime whose control would expand for more than a decade, until soaring corruption on top of another economic downturn - a much smaller one, triggered by the global financial crisis of 2008 - prompted another backlash. #Quote by Gregory Feifer
Corruption quotes by A.B. Simpson
#90. The Christian that is bound by his own horizon, the church that lives simply for itself, is bound to die a spiritual death and sink into stagnancy and corruption. We never can thank God enough for giving us not only a whole Gospel to believe, but a whole world to give it to. #Quote by A.B. Simpson
Corruption quotes by Robert Payne
#91. Sometimes societies die and putrefy long before they are pronounced dead, and sometimes men die of corruption long before they have taken to their deathbeds. #Quote by Robert Payne
Corruption quotes by Kevin Sites
#92. Others, however, perhaps overwhelmed by what they read, say Africa should be written off, that it's beyond repair. My experiences so far say we should put it in perspective. For instance, a new nation that has just won its independence from a colonial power struggles with internal graft and corruption, civil war and economic turbulence - more developed nations see it as a basket-case. Yet 200+ years later it emerges as the world's sole superpower. Yes, America. #Quote by Kevin Sites
Corruption quotes by James Allen
#93. Achievement of any kind is the crown of effort,the diadem of thought.By the aid of self-control, resolution, purity, righteousness, and well-directed thought a man ascends.By the aid of animality,indolence,impurity,corruption,and confusion of thought a man descends. #Quote by James Allen
Corruption quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#94. Of real sensational journalism, as it exists in France, in Ireland, and in America, we have no trace in this country. When a journalist in Ireland wishes to create a thrill, he creates a thrill worth talking about. He denounces a leading Irish member for corruption, or he charges the whole police system with a wicked and definite conspiracy. When a French journalist desires a frisson there is a frisson; he discovers, let us say, that the President of the Republic has murdered three wives. Our yellow journalists invent quite as unscrupulously as this; their moral condition is, as regards careful veracity, about the same. But it is their mental calibre which happens to be such that they can only invent calm and even reassuring things. The fictitious version of the massacre of the envoys of Pekin was mendacious, but it was not interesting, except to those who had private reasons for terror or sorrow. It was not connected with any bold and suggestive view of the Chinese situation. It revealed only a vague idea that nothing could be impressive except a great deal of blood. Real sensationalism, of which
I happen to be very fond, may be either moral or immoral. But even when it is most immoral, it requires moral courage. For it is one of the most dangerous things on earth genuinely to surprise anybody. If you make any sentient creature jump, you render it by no means improbable that it will jump on you. But the leaders of this movement have no moral courage or immoral courage; #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Corruption quotes by Bruce Kent
#95. Then there is the worst part of Christianity, which is awful: power, corruption, manipulation ... But then again, these feature are ever present in any organization. #Quote by Bruce Kent
Corruption quotes by Aristophanes
#96. Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice, plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy. #Quote by Aristophanes
Corruption quotes by Andrew James Pritchard
#97. -The very absence of the freedom to criticise against your own or any other government is all the more a reason to loudly shout-out for democracy! If that is wrong, Drew boldly went on, -then I would rather be wrong then to be numbered among the majority of the so-called righteous people whose only mandate seems to be controlling people. If a government is against its people expressing themselves, then that government is obviously hiding something criminal from its people and the world, and it is therefore afraid of being exposed and losing whatever power it has. #Quote by Andrew James Pritchard
Corruption quotes by Alexander Pope
#98. Poetic justice, with her lifted scale,
Where, in nice balance, truth with gold she weighs,
And solid pudding against empty praise.
Here she beholds the chaos dark and deep,
Where nameless somethings in their causes sleep,
Till genial Jacob, or a warm third day,
Call forth each mass, a poem, or a play:
How hints, like spawn, scarce quick in embryo lie,
How new-born nonsense first is taught to cry. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Corruption quotes by J.M. Carlisle
#99. The distinctive crimes of this generation are crimes of subtlety and finesse.
- ALEXANDER S. BACON 1908 #Quote by J.M. Carlisle
Corruption quotes by Hamza Yusuf
#100. Modesty becomes blameworthy if it prevents one from denouncing what clearly should be denounced, such as tyranny or corruption. This form of modesty results in meekness at a time when one needs to be forthright and courageous. Something condemnable (munkar) is condemnable regardless of the status of the person who is engaged in it - whether he or she is a close relative or a person of status, wealth, or authority. There must be agreement, however, among scholars on what is condemnable. One cannot, for example, declare decisively that something is considered condemnable if there is a difference of opinion on it among the scholars. Scholars knowledgeable of the plentitude of juristic differences rarely condemn others. They refrain from such condemnation not because of modesty but because of their extensive knowledge and scholarly insight. Unfortunately, many people today are swift to condemn, which creates another disease: self-righteousness. #Quote by Hamza Yusuf
Corruption quotes by Tacitus
#101. In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous. #Quote by Tacitus
Corruption quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#102. Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche

Corruption quotes by William Shakespeare
#106. The wholesale corruption of social relationships, even the most intimate, is an essential part of Shakespeare's chilling exposure of authoritarian politics. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Corruption quotes by John F. Kennedy
#107. Communism has never come to power in a country that was not disrupted by war or corruption, or both. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Corruption quotes by Noam Chomsky
#108. There are few genuine conservatives within the U.S. political system, and it is a sign of the intellectual corruption of the age that the honorable term 'conservatism' can be appropriated to disguise the advocacy of a powerful, lawless, aggressive and violent state, a welfare state for the rich dedicated to a lunatic form of Keynesian economic intervention that enhances state and private power while mortgaging the country's future. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Corruption quotes by Munia Khan
#109. My mind mends my motives and my notion navigates my natives,for we all are made of soil-our corrupted soil. #Quote by Munia Khan

#110. The worst thing about corruption as a system of governance, Didier once said, is that it works so well. #Quote by Gregory David Roberts
Corruption quotes by Anonymous
#111. Game Over! In this country, we outnumber them by the hundreds of millions, yet in the end, they'll win. They've already won. Over decades, with the appetite of the greedy and the cunning of the wicked, their hired agents have built up a national archetype that's now unstoppable. While we were distracted by our own shadows, their needles pierced the national psyche, slow dripping the poison of mendacity into our nation's bloodstream. They contaminated the law with toxic corruption, and while invoking the name of freedom, they crushed any opposition with bone-cracking efficiency. When we finally peel away the submissive bandages that wrapped our imaginary wounds and promised us safety, we'll find our flesh gone to dust, leaving only a willowy skeleton of hopelessness and surrender. #Quote by Anonymous
Corruption quotes by Wallace Stevens
#112. Realism is a corruption of reality. #Quote by Wallace Stevens
Corruption quotes by J.C. Ryle
#113. To become a monk, or a nun, or to join a House of of Mercy, is not the high road to sanctification. True holiness does not make a Christian evade difficulties, but face and overcome them. Christ would have His people show that His grace is not a mere hot-house plant, which can only thrive under shelter, but a strong, hardy thing which can flourish in every relation of life. It is doing our duty in that state to which God has called us
like salt in the midst of corruption, and light in the midst of darkness
which is a primary element in sanctification. #Quote by J.C. Ryle

Corruption quotes by Krista Tippett
#116. I'm consciously shedding the assumption that a skeptical point of view is the most intellectually credible. Intellect does not function in opposition to mystery; tolerance is not more pragmatic than love; and cynicism is not more reasonable than hope. Unlike almost every worthwhile thing in life, cynicism is easy. It's never proven wrong by the corruption or the catastrophe. It's not generative. It judges things as they are, but does not lift a finger to try to shift them. I #Quote by Krista Tippett
Corruption quotes by Joe Paterno
#117. SMU: 'It's unbelievable to think that kind of corruption came right from the top of the power structure. The NCAA did what it had to do' in canceling SMU's 1988 football season. #Quote by Joe Paterno
Corruption quotes by Aravind Adiga
#118. Like most people who live in India, I complain about corruption, but know that I can live with corrupt men. It is the honest ones I secretly worry about. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Corruption quotes by Bahman Ghobadi
#119. Lying and corruption are in the Iranian society in all sense of the world, and if you do research about married women, you see that a lot of them tell you they get a lot of enjoyment from breaking the rules of corruption, because just for the fact that they break the rules, it makes them oppose the system. #Quote by Bahman Ghobadi
Corruption quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#120. The weak will try to convince you that weakness is strength. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Corruption quotes by Djuna Barnes
#121. In the acceptance of depravity the sense of the past is most truly captured. What is a ruin but time easing itself of endurance? Corruption is the Age of Time. #Quote by Djuna Barnes

Corruption quotes by Renzo Novatore
#124. LOVE: Deception of the flesh and damage to the spirit. Disease of the soul, atrophy of the brain, weakening of the heart, corruption of the senses, poetic lies from which one gets ferociously inebriated two or three times a day in order to consume this precious but stupid life more quickly. And yet I would prefer to die of love. Its the only swindler, after Judas, that can kill with a kiss. #Quote by Renzo Novatore

Corruption quotes by Robert Fulghum
#126. You will continue to read stories of crookedness and corruption - of policemen who lie and steal, doctors who reap where they do not sew, politicians on the take. Don't be misled. They are news because they are the exceptions. #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Corruption quotes by Richard Ebeling
#127. Democracy in itself does not define or guarantee a free society. History has told many stories of democratic societies that have degenerated into corruption, plunder, and tyranny. #Quote by Richard Ebeling

Corruption quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#130. The consequences of inflation are malinvestment, waste, a wanton redistribution of wealth and income, the growth of speculation and gambling, immorality and corruption, disillusionment, social resentment, discontent, upheaval and riots, bankruptcy, increased government controls, and eventual collapse. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Corruption quotes by Ayn Rand
#131. If parasitism, favoritism, corruption, and greed for the unearned did not exist, a mixed economy would bring them into existence. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Corruption quotes by Jon Meacham
#132. He was the most contradictory of men. A champion of extending freedom and democracy to even the poorest of whites, Jackson was an unrepentant slaveholder. A sentimental man who rescued an Indian orphan on a battlefield to raise in his home, Jackson was responsible for the removal of Indian tribes from their ancestral lands. An enemy of Eastern financial elites and a relentless opponent of the Bank of the United States, which he believed to be a bastion of corruption, Jackson also promised to die, if necessary, to preserve the power and prestige of the central government. Like us and our America, Jackson and his America achieved great things while committing grievous sins. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Corruption quotes by Mike Lofgren
#133. It is no coincidence that as the Supreme Court has been removing the last constraints on the legalized corruption of politicians, the American standard of living has been falling at the fastest rate in decades. #Quote by Mike Lofgren

Corruption quotes by Arthur Miller
#135. The train resembles the Soviet type and is quite comfortable, but all socialist structures I have ever encountered have toilets stemming from a single model engineered by the Orthodox Church in Tsarist Russia to ensure that man never be allowed to forget the corruption of the flesh. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Corruption quotes by Sunday Adelaja

Corruption quotes by Chris Bell
#137. I filed the ethics complaint against Tom DeLay not because I'm a Democrat and he's a Republican or even because he drew me out of my congressional seat but because he engaged in corruption to further his plans to disenfranchise voters in Texas. #Quote by Chris Bell
Corruption quotes by Adam Smith
#138. The disposition to admire, and almost to worship, the rich and the powerful, and to despise, or, at least, to neglect persons of poor and mean condition is the great and most universal cause of the corruption of our moral sentiments. #Quote by Adam Smith
Corruption quotes by Dave Hunt
#139. To reverence the impersonal creation instead of the personal God who created us is a perversion designed for escaping moral accountability to the Creator. God indicts those who worship the creation instead of its Creator (Rom 1:18-23); and warns of the corruption of morals and behavior which results. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Corruption quotes by Steven Magee
#140. Police internal affairs are in the business of protecting corrupt and incompetent police officers from prosecution due to the extensive range of laws that they have blatantly broken. #Quote by Steven Magee
Corruption quotes by Peggy Noonan
#141. In ancient Israel and Rome the judge had appeared as a stand-in for the divine, and corruption was a blinding of the representative of the divine. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Corruption quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#142. Well, listen then. On the other side, fresh young lives thrown away for want of help and by thousands, on every side! A hundred thousand good deeds could be done and helped, on that old woman's money which will be buried in a monastery! Hundreds, thousands perhaps, might be set on the right path; dozens of families saved from destitution, from ruin, from vice, from the Lock hospitals - and all with her money. Kill her, take her money and with the help of it devote oneself to the service of humanity and the good of all. What do you think, would not one tiny crime be wiped out by thousands of good deeds? For one life thousands would be saved from corruption and decay. One death, and a hundred lives in exchange - it's simple arithmetic! Besides, what value has the life of that sickly, stupid, ill-natured old woman in the balance of existence! No more than the life of a louse, of a black-beetle, less in fact because the old woman is doing harm. She is wearing out the lives of others; the other day she bit Lizaveta's finger out of spite; it almost had to be amputated. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Corruption quotes by Dean Koontz
#143. After all, a society with such an enlightened tolerance of corruption and savagery needed to bear down hard on minor offenses to convince itself that it still had standards. #Quote by Dean Koontz

Corruption quotes by Suzy Kassem
#145. A system is corrupt when it is strictly profit-driven, not driven to serve the best interests of its people, but those of multinational corporations. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Corruption quotes by Clive Barker
#146. Now, I don't believe that a god exists. I think that gods are creation of men, by men, and for men. What has happened over the many centuries now, the better part of two thousand in fact, is that God has been slowly and steadily accruing power. His church has been accruing power, and the men who run that church, and they are all men, are not about to give it up. If they give it up, they give up luxury, they give up comfort. #Quote by Clive Barker
Corruption quotes by Gwenn Wright
#147. Whatever happened in those more than one hundred years, from the time my great-great-great grandfather studied law to the time when my own father took his bar exam in 1989, I may never know. Perhaps it was just greed and the good, old-fashion corruption that comes with power. The Drexlers have moved from the fight for human rights to the fight for corporations and wealthy individuals. We file their taxes, write their contracts, clean up their messes. As I see it, we have become little more than glorified Public Relations reps #Quote by Gwenn Wright
Corruption quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#148. ...the conduct of another class, equally criminal, and, if possible, more mischievous has hitherto passed with that impunity.... I mean that tribe who...have carried the spirit
of monopoly and extortion to an excess which scarcely admits of a parallel. When avarice takes the lead in a state, it is commonly the forerunner of its fall. How shocking is it to discover among ourselves, even at this early period, the strongest symptoms of this fatal disease? #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Corruption quotes by Frank Zappa
#149. Schools train you to be ignorant with style [ ... ] they prepare you to be a usable victim for a military industrial complex that needs manpower. As long as you're just smart enough to do a job and just dumb enough to swallow what they feed you, you're going to be alright [ ... ] So I believe that schools mechanically and very specifically try and breed out any hint of creative thought in the kids that are coming up. #Quote by Frank Zappa
Corruption quotes by Simone Weil
#150. The form that the love of religion takes in the soul differs a great deal according to the circumstances of out lives. Some circumstances prevent the very birth of this love; others kill it before it has been able to grow very strong. In affliction some men, in spite of themselves, develop a hatred and contempt for religions because the cruelty, pride, or corruption of certain of its ministers have made them suffer. There are others who have been reared from their earliest youth in surroundings impregnated with a spirit of this sort. We must conclude that in such cases, by God's mercy, the love of our neighbor and the love of the beauty of the world, if they are sufficiently strong and pure, will be enough to raise the soul to any height. #Quote by Simone Weil
Corruption quotes by Robert Kennedy
#151. I don't believe newspaper reporters can substitute for a district attorney, but a newspaper has a very valid investigative role. Newspaper reports on corruption in government, racketeering and organized crime conditions can be very helpful to your communities and the whole country. #Quote by Robert Kennedy
Corruption quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#152. Knowledge is an excellent drug; but no drug has virtue enough to preserve itself from corruption and decay, if the vessel be tainted and impure wherein it is put to keep. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Corruption quotes by Suzy Kassem
#153. The world is going to turn upside down in a way that the honest man will live uncomfortably -- while the dishonest man will live very comfortably. Pay attention to the windows of the Four Seasons next time you stroll by their dining room. You will find thugs and hustlers of every creed living like true kings and queens. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Corruption quotes by Montesquieu
#154. When the laws have ceased to be executed, as this can only come from the corruption of the republic, the state is already lost. #Quote by Montesquieu
Corruption quotes by Timothy Keller
#155. Ministry. Sadly, there has never been a city on earth that is not saturated with human sin and corruption. Indeed, to paraphrase a Woody Allen joke, cities are just like everywhere else, only much more so. They are both better and worse, both easier and harder to live in, both more inspiring and oppressive, than other places. As redemptive history unfolds, we begin to see how the tension of the city will be resolved. The turn in the relationship between the people of God and the pagan city becomes a key aspect of God's plan to bless the nations and redeem the world. In the New Testament, we find cities playing an important role in the rapid growth of the early church and in spreading the gospel message of God's salvation. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Corruption quotes by Gideon Haigh
#156. Sambit Bal may be right that this is a scandal the IPL needed. It certainly brings fans face-to-face with the tangled reality of their amusement, based as it is on a self-seeking, self-perpetuating commercial oligarchy issued licenses to exploit cricket as they please. Whether the fans care is another matter: one of the reasons Indians have embraced economic liberalisation so fervently is a shoulder-shrugging resignation about the efficiency and integrity of their institutions. Given the choice between Lalit Modi, with his snappy suits and his soi-disant 'Indian People's League', and the BCCI, stuffed with grandstanding politicians and crony capitalists, where would your loyalties lie? #Quote by Gideon Haigh
Corruption quotes by Deepak Chopra

Corruption quotes by Jonathan Raban
#159. One classic American landscape haunts all of American literature. It is a picture of Eden, perceived at the instant of history when corruption has just begun to set it. The serpent has shown his scaly head in the undergrowth. The apple gleams on the tree. The old drama of the Fall is ready to start all over again. #Quote by Jonathan Raban
Corruption quotes by Andre Bazin
#160. Photography does not create eternity, as art does; it embalms time, rescuing it simply from its proper corruption. #Quote by Andre Bazin
Corruption quotes by John Taylor
#161. I used to think, if I were the Lord, I would not suffer people to be tried as they are. But I have changed my mind on that subject. Now I think I would, if I were the Lord, because it purges out the meanness and corruption that stick around the saints, like flies around molasses. #Quote by John Taylor
Corruption quotes by Michael J. Mitchell
#162. Creativity without sweat of the brow is irresponsibility. Receiving gifts without reciprocal sacrifice is selfishness. Giving answers without the work of understanding is indifference. Selfishness, indifference, and irresponsibility are the seeds of hollow pride and corruption of the soul. #Quote by Michael J. Mitchell
Corruption quotes by Tom Robbins
#163. My personal motto has always been: Joy in spite of everything. Not just [mindless] joy, but joy in spite of everything. Recognizing the inequities and the suffering and the corruption and all that but refusing to let it rain on my parade. And I advocate this to other people. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Corruption quotes by Katherine Boo
#164. Food wasn't one of the amenities at Cooper, the five-hundred-bed hospital on which millions of poor people depended. Nor was medicine. "Out of stock today" was the nurses' official explanation. Plundered and resold out of supply cabinets was an unofficial one. What patients needed, families had to buy on the street and bring in. #Quote by Katherine Boo
Corruption quotes by Lincoln Steffens
#165. In all cities, the better classes - the business men - are the sources of corruption, but they are so rarely pursued and caught that we do not fully realize whence the trouble comes. #Quote by Lincoln Steffens

Corruption quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#169. The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Corruption quotes by Carl Sagan
#170. One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It's simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we've been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Corruption quotes by Solon
#171. The New Dimension is peaceful, and all work here just as they do on Earth. It's a place where learning, knowledge and wisdom are essential to that work.
It is not corrupt like the Earth Plane, and there they are free from all of the corruption that exists on Earth today.
We created this New Dimension for growing and learning, as we did Earth.
Minds here are advanced, as the knowledge that was acquired on Earth is now attuned to the minds of New Dimension souls.
It is a slow process for all souls' minds to learn and absorb knowledge and wisdom.
Love is the answer for all kinds of souls to advance in the Universe. Through love, knowledge and wisdom are well earned.
Critical thinking, the Earth Plane has gotten off track, forgetting or ignoring this most important key to progress.
We all here in the Universe is working so hard with Earth souls to remind them that their purpose on Earth is to advance.
First, they must love themselves if they are going to love all of those around them, if they are going to love other souls, if they are going to help less fortunate souls with love and kindness. All of this is part of Earth lessons they must learn.
Once this is understood, we will attain peace of soul and mind…
Progress is all that matters in the Universe! #Quote by Solon
Corruption quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#172. The people are the ultimate guardians of their own liberties. In every government on earth is some trace of human weakness, some germ of corruption and degeneracy ... Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Corruption quotes by William Hazlitt
#173. I am not, in the ordinary acceptation of the term, a good-natured man; that is, many things annoy me besides what interferes with my own ease and interest. I hate a lie; a piece of injustice wounds me to the quick, though nothing but the report of it reach me. Therefore I have made many enemies and few friends; for the public know nothing of well-wishers, and keep a wary eye on those who would reform them. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Corruption quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#174. Commerce is considered by classical economists to be a positive-sum
game. The act of selling and buying always benefits both the seller
and the buyer. It is unfortunate that popular culture has propagated
the Marxist myth that one person gains in business at the expense of
another, that capitalism is evil because it is a zero-sum game - somebody
wins while someone else loses. When liberals make the argument
that capitalism is the cause of all of our problems, they are either
speaking out of abject ignorance or being totally disingenuous to
protect their interests. We have not had true free-market capitalism
in this country on any wide scale. Where we have had economic
successes in this nation's history, it has been those times when people
have done something outside of the government's involvement. Every
time the federal government has been involved, it has created chaos,
waste, and corruption. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Corruption quotes by Douglas Gresham
#175. There are 3 kinds of magic in our world. The peddling little magician magic like Uncle Andrew in 'The Magicians Newphew' where people mess around with things they don't understand. It's movie magic. Then there is the magic of the evil side of things. The demonic forces. And that's not really magic ... it's corruption of what really exists. And then finally there is the magic of the Holy Spirit of God which is the creation and maintenence of the universe. We don't understand it ... and we haven't the faintest idea how He does it. But it's real. That's the deep magic. #Quote by Douglas Gresham
Corruption quotes by Kathleen Parker
#176. Capitalism, the ogre of those protesting Wall Street, has suffered a public relations crisis in the wake of the global economic collapse. But any remedy to the systemic corruption that led to the collapse should not displace recognition that capitalism creates wealth. Capitalism, and no other economic system, has raised millions from poverty around the world. #Quote by Kathleen Parker
Corruption quotes by Asmit Rathod

Corruption quotes by Eric Weiner

Corruption quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#182. One of the greatest indicators of how much truth and honesty is in a country, is easily seen by observing how people drive around the city. What is their attitude to the rules of road safety? What is their attitude towards other commuters? Do they try to beat the system by all means? Do they try to get their way by hook or by crook, or they follow the rules? That is also part of corruption! #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Corruption quotes by Bryant McGill

Corruption quotes by Helen Fielding
#184. The corruption of the good by the belief in their own infallible goodnes is the most bloody dangerous pitfall in the human spectrum. Once you have conquered all your sins, pride is the one which will conquer you. A man starts off deciding he is a good man because he makes good decisions. Next thing, he's convinced that whatever decision he makes must be good because he's a good man. Most of the wars in the world are caused by people who think they have god on their side. Always stick with people who know they are flawed and ridiculous. #Quote by Helen Fielding

Corruption quotes by Martin Lings
#190. Fixed settlements were perhaps inevitable, but they were dangerous. Their ancestors' way of life had been the nobler one, the life of tent-dwellers, often on the move. Nobility and freedom were inseparable, and the nomad was free. In the desert a man was concious of being the lord of the space, and in virtue of that lordship he escaped in a sense from the domination of time. By striking camp he sloughed off his yesterdays; and tomorrow seemed less of a fatality if its where as well as its when had yet to come. But the townsman was a prisoner; and to be fixed in one place, - yesterday, today, tomorrow - was to be a target of time, the ruiner of all things. Towns were places of corruption. Sloth and slovenliness lurked in the shadow of their walls, ready to take an edge off a man's alertness and vigilance. Everything decayed there, even language, one of man's most precious possessions. #Quote by Martin Lings
Corruption quotes by Andrew Jackson
#191. I weep for the liberty of my country when I see at this early day of its successful experiment that corruption has been imputed to many members of the House of Representatives, and the rights of the people have been bartered for promises of office. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Corruption quotes by John Connolly
#192. Samuel understood at last why this being hated men and women so much: he hated them because they were so like himself, because the worst of the was mirrored in them. He was the source of all that was bad in men and women, but he had none of the greatness, and none of the grace, of which human beings were capable, so that by only by corrupting them was his own pain diminished, and thus his existence made more tolerable. #Quote by John Connolly
Corruption quotes by Philip Gourevitch
#193. Mike Stanton is our preeminent aficionado and raconteur of Rhode Island's flamboyantly criminal political follies, and The Prince of Providence is the chronicle of a great American rogue, Mayor Buddy Cianci - a paragon of charisma and corruption. #Quote by Philip Gourevitch
Corruption quotes by Oren Moverman
#194. So the only problem that you have is actually switch things in the department, changing things, controlling things, putting it maybe under federal supervision, and if you fix the department, you'll fix the problems - with police corruption, with brutality, with evidence tampering, all those things. #Quote by Oren Moverman
Corruption quotes by Emma Goldman
#195. Corruption of politics has nothing to do with the morals, or the laxity of morals, of various political personalities. Its cause is altogether a material one. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Corruption quotes by Janet Malcolm
#196. Critics established the right to say whatever they pleased about the dead. It is an absolute power, and the corruption that comes with it, very often, is an atrophy of the moral imagination. They move onto the living because they can no longer feel the difference between the living and the dead. They extend over the living that license to say whatever they please, to ransack their psyche and reinvent them however they please. They stand in front of classes and present this performance as exemplary civilized activity - this utter insensitivity towards other living human beings. Students see the easy power and are enthralled, and begin to outdo their teachers. For a person to be corrupted in that way is to be genuinely corrupted. #Quote by Janet Malcolm
Corruption quotes by Ai Weiwei
#197. For all the tough talk about China during the presidential debates, Romney and Obama evaded any mention of China's suspect human rights record, corruption, and rule of law. By not tackling these controversial topics, the candidates are protecting a strategic partnership with China at the expense of essential human values and beliefs. #Quote by Ai Weiwei
Corruption quotes by Dev Dantreliya
#198. Lack of knowledge and skills, laziness, gluttony, over-indulgence, lustiness, anger, fear, greed and misuse of knowledge, power and designation are the sources of corruption in the government employees. #Quote by Dev Dantreliya
Corruption quotes by Mao Zedong
#199. At no time and in no circumstances should a Communist place his personal interests first; he should subordinate them to the interests of the nation and of the masses. Hence, selfishness, slacking, corruption, seeking the limelight, and so on, are most contemptible, while selflessness, working with all one's energy, whole-hearted devotion to public duty, and quiet hard work will command respect. #Quote by Mao Zedong
Corruption quotes by Dean Cavanagh
#200. Time Is Speeding Up In Relation To Corruption. Hold On Tight. #Quote by Dean Cavanagh
