Fraud quotes by Beryl Dov
#1. Allison of RADAD: The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Disability
The ticks of Lyme
Suck my blood of time
And leave me rather drowsy.

My feet move like tar
With Epstein-Barr
And I wake up feeling lousy.

I fall asleep in my Pepsi
With Narcolepsy
To the chagrin of the soda jerk.

My Chronic Fatigue
(and thespian ability)
puts me in the big league
(of insurance fraud disability)

So who the fuck needs to work! #Quote by Beryl Dov
Fraud quotes by Sebastian Horsley
#2. I am a fraud. I have cobbled together my personality from hundreds of little bits. I am simultaneously the most genuine and the most artificial person you will ever meet. #Quote by Sebastian Horsley
Fraud quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#3. The internet itself led him from one word to the next, giving links, pointing out. When it didn't know something it tactfully kept quiet or stubbornly showed him the same pages, ad nauseam. Then Kunicki had the impression that he had just landed at the border of the known world, at the wall, at the membrane of the heavenly firmament. There wasn't any way to break through it with his head and look through. The internet is a fraud. It promises so much - that it will execute your every command, that it will find you what you're looking for; execution, fulfillment, reward. But in essence that promise is a kind of bait, because you immediately fall into a trance, into hypnosis. The paths quickly diverge, double and multiply, and you go down them, still chasing an aim that will now get blurry and undergo some transformations. You lose the ground beneath your feet, the place where you started from just gets forgotten, and your aim finally vanishes from sight, disappears in the passage of more and more pages, businesses that always promise more than they can give, shamelessly pretending that under the flat plane of the screen there is some cosmos. But nothing could be more deceptive, dear Kunicki. What are you, Kunicki, looking for? What are you aiming at? You feel like spreading out your arms and plunging into it, into that abyss, but there is nothing more deceptive: the landscape turns out to be a wallpaper, you can't go any farther. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Fraud quotes by Libba Bray
#4. Because I'm not enough, she thought. That was the terrible echo shouting up at her: Fraud, fraud, fraud. She got drunk and talked too much and danced on tables. She had a temper and a sharp tongue, and she often blurted out things she instantly regretted. Worst of all, she suspected that was who she truly was - not so much a bright young thing as a messy young thing. #Quote by Libba Bray
Fraud quotes by Michael Parenti
#5. The Federalists also used bribes, intimidation, and fraud against opponents of the Constitution. #Quote by Michael Parenti
Fraud quotes by Jennifer Ouellette
#6. I succeeded at math, at least by the usual evaluation criteria: grades. Yet while I might have earned top marks in geometry and algebra, I was merely following memorized rules, plugging in numbers and dutifully crunching out answers by rote, with no real grasp of the significance of what I was doing or its usefulness in solving real-world problems. Worse, I knew the depth of my own ignorance, and I lived in fear that my lack of comprehension would be discovered and I would be exposed as an academic fraud
psychologists call this "imposter syndrome". #Quote by Jennifer Ouellette
Fraud quotes by Pink
#7. Every album, I'm worried that I'm a dork and a fraud - 'What if I can't sing anymore?' Then I stop thinking and start playing guitar, and I realize that it's okay to suck, and move forward. #Quote by Pink
Fraud quotes by Newt Gingrich
#8. EITC is an invitation to fraud. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Fraud quotes by Jon Stewart
#9. The trial of Enron chiefs Jeffrey Skilling and Ken Lay began four-and-a-half years after perpetrating
allegedly
the fraud that led to the second largest bankruptcy in American history. Why four-and-a-half years? Because apparently it's harder to bring Ken Lay to trial than it is to invade two countries. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Fraud quotes by Kym Petrie
#10. Each tim I think I am falling for Mister Right, and then what happens? BAM! The guy turns out to be a fraud, a swindling scoundrel, or a dishonest, disparaging jerk! #Quote by Kym Petrie
Fraud quotes by Meljean Brook
#11. She'd been a silly girl who'd dreamed of love, and a stupid girl who'd declared love a fraud; but she'd never imagined that when she found it,it would be richer, more powerful than dreams, and the impossibility of keeping it more painful than the worst betrayal. #Quote by Meljean Brook
Fraud quotes by Nevil Shute
#12. I never was in such a horrid office ... It's not very nice to be where people are being swindled all day long, is it? #Quote by Nevil Shute
Fraud quotes by Gabriel Zucman
#13. The large and rising offshore wealth translates to substantial losses in fiscal revenue. By my estimate, the fraud perpetuated through unreported foreign accounts each year costs about $200 billion to governments throughout the world (see fig. #Quote by Gabriel Zucman
Fraud quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#14. The religion that has to be supported by law is without value, not only, but a fraud and a curse. The religious argument that has to be supported by a musket is hardly worth making. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Fraud quotes by Matt Taibbi
#15. So the only time RICO was used to fight mortgage fraud was when the criminal was a black gang member and the victims were banks. (Ironically, nobody thought to wonder how it was possible for a Lincoln Park gang member to buy 222 houses with no money down. Heading into that particular rabbit hole would have led to the larger crime, but nobody did.) #Quote by Matt Taibbi
Fraud quotes by Gerald Vann
#16. Some people think that prayer just means asking for things, and if they fail to receive exactly what they asked for, they think the whole thing is a fraud. #Quote by Gerald Vann
Fraud quotes by Christine Pelosi
#17. When it comes to voting rights, Democrats push voter protection while Republicans shout voter fraud in a crowded polling place. Democrats think anyone who can vote should vote; Republicans think everyone who should vote can vote. #Quote by Christine Pelosi
Fraud quotes by Henry Thomas Buckle
#18. That the system of morals propounded in the New Testament contained no maxim which had not been previously enunciated, and that some of the most beautiful passages in the apostolic writings are quotations from Pagan authors, is well known to every scholar ... To assert that Christianity communicated to man moral truths previously unknown, argues on the part of the asserted either gross ignorance or wilful fraud. #Quote by Henry Thomas Buckle
Fraud quotes by Shirley Chisholm
#19. ... My present attitude toward politics as it is practiced in the United States: it is a beautiful fraud that has been imposed on the people for years, whose practitioners exchange gilded promises for the most valuable thing their victims own, their votes. And who benefits most? The lawyers. (Chapter 4) #Quote by Shirley Chisholm
Fraud quotes by John Casey
#20. The theory of man-made global warming and climate change based on human greenhouse gas emissions is the greatest international scientific fraud ever perpetrated on the world's citizens! #Quote by John Casey
Fraud quotes by Evgeny Morozov
#21. There is no doubt that the Internet brims with spamming, scamming and identity fraud. Having someone wipe out your hard drive or bank account has never been easier, and the tools for committing electronic mischief on your enemies are cheap and widely accessible. #Quote by Evgeny Morozov
Fraud quotes by Steven Magee
#22. We live in a society that is governed by corrupt corporate controlled scumbags. #Quote by Steven Magee
Fraud quotes by Oswald Chambers

Fraud quotes by Matt Blaze
#24. The tipping point for e-voting fraud, I think, will be when they realize it's cheaper to hire hackers than to buy campaign ads. #Quote by Matt Blaze
Fraud quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#25. The history of government management of money has, except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant fraud and deception. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Fraud quotes by Saint Augustine
#26. To seek the greatest good is to live well, and to live well is nothing other than to love God with the whole heart, the whole soul, and the whole mind: It is therefore obvious that this love must be kept whole and uncorrupt, that is temperance; it should not be overcome with difficulties, that is fortitude, it must not be subservient to anything else, that is justice; it must discriminate among things so as not to be deceived by falsity or fraud, that is prudence. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Fraud quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#27. In the controversy that followed the prince's remarks, his most staunch defender was professor John Taylor, a scholar whose work I had last noticed when he gave good reviews to the psychokinetic (or whatever) capacities of the Israeli conjuror and fraud Uri Geller. The heir to the throne seems to possess the ability to surround himself - perhaps by some mysterious ultramagnetic force? - with every moon-faced spoon-bender, shrub-flatterer, and water-diviner within range. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Fraud quotes by Malab, The Komorébi
#28. malcolm pimped

malcolm did fraud

malcolm stole

malcolm did so many things,

but that wasn't the end of the story

it doesn't have to end this way for you either



bc malcolm x spoke at oxford union,

1964

&this was a man who didn't even go to university

university students were the audience to man who didn't finish high school

he stood where presidents

&prime ministers stood #Quote by Malab, The Komorébi
Fraud quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#29. Considering these limitations, it is quite astonishing how irreligious the Founders actually were. You might not easily guess, for example, who was the author of the following words: Oh! Lord! Do you think that a Protestant Popedom is annihilated in America? Do you recollect, or have you ever attended to the ecclesiastical Strifes in Maryland Pensilvania [sic], New York, and every part of New England? What a mercy it is that these People cannot whip and crop, and pillory and roast, as yet in the U.S.! If they could they would ... . There is a germ of religion in human nature so strong that whenever an order of men can persuade the people by flattery or terror that they have salvation at their disposal, there can be no end to fraud, violence, or usurpation. That was John Adams, in relatively mild form. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Fraud quotes by John Bolton
#30. There is no excuse for waste, fraud, and abuse in the Defense Department budget. #Quote by John Bolton
Fraud quotes by Doug Stanhope
#31. I used to do boiler room telemarketing for a living, like hardcore fraud stuff that gets busted on 60 Minutes every week. #Quote by Doug Stanhope
Fraud quotes by Jose Saramago
#32. Though I had come into the world on 16 November 1922, my official documents show that I was born two days later, on the 18th. It was thanks to this petty fraud that my family escaped from paying the fine for not having registered my birth at the proper legal time. #Quote by Jose Saramago
Fraud quotes by Marta Andreasen
#33. Opportunities for fraud are open and they are taken advantage of. The most elementary precautions are neither taken nor even contemplated. The reverse is the case. People such as myself who attempt to bring openness and accountability to the system are pursued, suspended and dismissed. #Quote by Marta Andreasen
Fraud quotes by Edward Norton
#34. I'm not a very methodologically pure actor. Almost every time that I start, I feel completely at sea. Always at the beginning I feel like a fraud, really, because I'm never sure how to get started. #Quote by Edward Norton
Fraud quotes by John Jortin
#35. A man hath riches. Whence came they, and whither go they? for this is the way to form a judgment of the esteem which they and their possessor deserve. If they have been acquired by fraud or violence, if they make him proud and vain, if they minister to luxury and intemperance, if they are avariciously hoarded up and applied to no proper use, the possessor becomes odious and contemptible. #Quote by John Jortin
Fraud quotes by Andy Behrman
#36. I think almost all manic depressives exhibit some kind of criminal behaviour, even if it's something as minimal as shoplifting, but then they often go on to bigger and better things - in my case, it was fraud. #Quote by Andy Behrman
Fraud quotes by Stieg Larsson
#37. Wennerström was devoting himself to fraud that was so extensive it was no longer merely criminal–it was business. #Quote by Stieg Larsson
Fraud quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#38. The truth is that by the infinite flexibility of interpretation one can get away with anything. Some people perpetrate fraud in the name of charity, others justify their obvious lunacy by calling it inspiration. #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Fraud quotes by Arthur Miller
#39. MAGGIE, in pain: That's what I mean; I'm a joke to most people.
QUENTIN: No, it's that you say what you mean, Maggie. You don't seem to be upholding anything, you're not - ashamed of what you are.
MAGGIE: W-what do you mean, of what I am?
... But you didn't, did you?
He turns to her in agony.
Laugh at me?
QUENTIN: No. He suddenly stands and cries out to Listener. Fraud! From the first five minutes! ... Because! I should have agreed she was a joke, a beautiful piece, trying to take herself seriously! Why did I lie to her, play this cheap benefactor, this - Listens, and now unwillingly he turns back to her.
MAGGIE: Like when you told me to fix where my dress was torn? You wanted me to be - proud of myself. Didn't you? #Quote by Arthur Miller
Fraud quotes by Edwin G. Burrows
#40. On New Year's Eve 1777, after performing in a play entitled The Devil to Pay in the West Indies, a party of drunken officers - one dressed up like Old Nick himself, complete with horns and tail - disrupted services at the John Street Methodist Church. Nor was that the worst of it. "I could narrate many and very frightful occurrences of theft, fraud, robbery, and murder by the English soldiers which their love of drink excited," said one dismayed German officer. #Quote by Edwin G. Burrows
Fraud quotes by Alex S. Vitale
#41. As Jeffrey Reiman points out in the Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison, the criminal justice system excuses and ignores crimes of the rich that produce profound social harms while intensely criminalizing the behaviors of the poor and nonwhite, including those behaviors that produce few social harms. When the crimes of the rich are dealt with, it's generally through administrative controls and civil enforcement rather than aggressive policing, criminal prosecution, and incarceration, which are reserved largely for the poor and nonwhite. No bankers have been jailed for the 2008 financial crisis despite widespread fraud and the looting of the American economy, which resulted in mass unemployment, homelessness, and economic dislocation. #Quote by Alex S. Vitale
Fraud quotes by Steven Magee
#42. An electrical utility company that blatantly lies to law enforcement about an electrical fraud researcher would be considered suicidal by many people. #Quote by Steven Magee
Fraud quotes by Al Franken
#43. Sometimes if I tell people, 'I'm afraid that I'm really a fraud,' or 'I have a lot of self-doubt,' they go, 'Oh, no, you're kidding.' I go, 'No, I'm really honest.' #Quote by Al Franken
Fraud quotes by Samuel Johnson
#44. The young man, who intends no ill,
Believes that none is intended, and therefore
Acts with openness and candor: but his father, having suffered the injuries of fraud, is impelled to suspect, and too often allured to practice it. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Fraud quotes by David Riesman
#45. Isn't it possible that advertising as a whole is a fantastic fraud, presenting an image of America taken seriously by no one, least of all the advertising men who create it? #Quote by David Riesman
Fraud quotes by Harold Covington
#46. Take away the Holocaust and what do you have left? Without their precious Holocaust, what are the Jews? Just a grubby little bunch of international bandits and assassins and squatters who have perpetrated the most massive, cynical fraud in human history. #Quote by Harold Covington
Fraud quotes by Alexander Chee
#47. It's my experience that people don't think of fiction writing as being as intellectually serious as other kinds of writing in academia and so without a career as a critic or essayist you can be treated as something of a spiritual medium - a fraud - for "just" writing fiction. #Quote by Alexander Chee
Fraud quotes by David Boaz
#48. Libertarianism is the view that each person has the right to live his life in any way he chooses so long as he respects the equal rights of others. Libertarians defend each person's right to life, liberty, and property - rights that people possess naturally, before governments are created. In the libertarian view, all human relationships should voluntary; the only actions that should be forbidden by law are those that involve the initiation of force against those who have themselves used force - actions like murder, rape, robbery, kidnapping, and fraud. #Quote by David Boaz
Fraud quotes by Steven Magee
#49. To impeach the President or not to impeach the President, that is the question. #Quote by Steven Magee
Fraud quotes by Samuel Blumenfeld
#50. The plain, unvarnished truth is that public education is a shoddy, fraudulent piece of goods sold t to the public at an astronomical price. It's time the American consumer knew the extent of the fraud which is victimizing millions of children each year. #Quote by Samuel Blumenfeld
Fraud quotes by Barry Eisler
#51. sold to the public on false pretenses, high officials confessing to ordering torture in violation of treaty and domestic law, and an economic meltdown even former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan acknowledges involved massive fraud - and no one has been prosecuted, no one has gone to prison, and Americans continue to dutifully cast their votes for the Democratic/Republican duopoly responsible for these disasters. #Quote by Barry Eisler
Fraud quotes by Richie Norton
#52. All too often people pretend to be professional. "Professionalism" is sometimes a facade for fraud. Be pro, but be real. Honesty and transparency combined with character, competence and real results is the key to being a true pro. #Quote by Richie Norton
Fraud quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#53. Lies don't fit snugly into disguises. Eventually the cloak falls off and you're left staring at the naked truth which is always an uncomfortable situation. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Fraud quotes by Neil Gaiman
#54. He calls himself the Marquis de Carabas," he said. "He's a fraud and a cheat and possibly even something of a monster. If you're ever in trouble, go to him. He will protect you, girl. He has to. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Fraud quotes by Jon Edgell
#55. Month to month there were many discrepancies carried forward without resolution through what I jokingly called my "999 (or Nick Leeson)" account. #Quote by Jon Edgell
Fraud quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#56. If you see fraud and do not say fraud, you are a fraud. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Fraud quotes by John Reynaga
#57. Expose the Jesuit order and learn about the global genocide. Speak out, even when what you have to say is not popular. #Quote by John Reynaga
Fraud quotes by Arthur  Miller
#58. A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face! And it is my face, and yours, Danforth! For them that quail to bring men out of ignorance, as I have quailed, and as you quail now when you know in all your black hearts that this be fraud - God damns our kind especially, and we will burn, we will burn together! #Quote by Arthur Miller
Fraud quotes by Jean-Baptiste Say
#59. Regulation is useful and proper, when aimed at the prevention of fraud or contrivance, manifestly injurious to other kinds of production, or to the public safety, and not at prescribing the nature of the products and the methods of fabrication. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Say
Fraud quotes by B.F. Skinner
#60. Promising paradise or threatening hell-fire is, we assumed, generally admitted to be unproductive. It is based upon a fundamental fraud which, when discovered, turns the individual against society and nourishes the very thing it tries to stamp out. What Jesus offered in return of loving one's enemies was heaven on earth, better known as peace of mind. #Quote by B.F. Skinner
Fraud quotes by Mark Russell
#61. When you trick somebody into participating in a small-time fraud, it's called a 'scam.' But when the scam is so big that people have no choice but to participate, it's called 'economics. #Quote by Mark Russell
Fraud quotes by Robert Pattinson
#62. Cosmopolis is the movie of my life. I didn't consider myself an actor before, even if I had 10 years of acting behind me. I always felt like a fraud, and inappropriate. I doubt a lot. David Cronenberg gave me confidence in myself. He changed my way of acting and thinking in this industry. #Quote by Robert Pattinson
Fraud quotes by Ian McEwan
#63. Twenty years ago I might have hired a professional listener, but somewhere along the way I had lost faith in the talking cure. A genteel fraud in my view. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Fraud quotes by Frank Kermode
#64. For Aristotle the literary plot was analogous to the plot of the world in that both were eductions from the potency of matter. Sartre denies this for the world, and specifically denies, in the passage just referred to, that without potentiality there is no change. He reverts to the Megaric view of the matter, which Aristotle took such trouble to correct. But this is not our affair. The fact is that even if you believe in a Megaric world there is no such thing as a Megaric novel; not even Paterson. Change without potentiality in a novel is impossible, quite simply; though it is the hopeless aim of the cut-out writers, and the card-shuffle writers. A novel which really implemented this policy would properly be a chaos. No novel can avoid being in some sense what Aristotle calls 'a completed action.' This being so, all novels imitate a world of potentiality, even if this implies a philosophy disclaimed by their authors. They have a fixation on the eidetic imagery of beginning, middle, and end, potency and cause.

Novels, then, have beginnings, ends, and potentiality, even if the world has not. In the same way it can be said that whereas there may be, in the world, no such thing as character, since a man is what he does and chooses freely what he does--and in so far as he claims that his acts are determined by psychological or other predisposition he is a fraud, lâche, or salaud--in the novel there can be no just representation of this, for if the man were entirely free #Quote by Frank Kermode
Fraud quotes by Robert Galbraith
#65. Matthew kept hinting that Strike was somehow a fake. He seemed to feel that being a private detective was a far-fetched job, like astronaut or lion tamer; that real people did not do such things. #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Fraud quotes by Thomas Sowell
#66. High tax rates in the upper income brackets allow politicians to win votes with class warfare rhetoric, painting their opponents as defenders of the rich. Meanwhile, the same politicians can win donations from the rich by creating tax loopholes that can keep the rich from actually paying those higher tax rates - or perhaps any taxes at all. What is worse than class warfare is phony class warfare. Slippery talk about 'fairness' is at the heart of this fraud by politicians seeking to squander more of the nation's resources. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Fraud quotes by KRS-One
#67. Are you tired of lyrical liars, passing fliers,
Wannabe MC's, but really good triers,
Tripping over mic cords, getting you bored,
A total fraud, this kind of thing I can't afford! #Quote by KRS-One
Fraud quotes by Barack Obama
#68. Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. #Quote by Barack Obama
Fraud quotes by Nick Hornby
#69. There was, he thought, an emotional truth here somewhere, and he could see now that his role-playing had a previously unsuspected artistic element to it. He was acting, yes, but in the noblest, most profound sense of the word. He wasn't a fraud. He was Robert De Niro. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Fraud quotes by Emmett F. Fields
#70. Atheism is more than just the knowledge that gods do not exist, and that religion is either a mistake or a fraud. Atheism is an attitude, a frame of mind that looks at the world objectively, fearlessly, always trying to understand all things as a part of nature. #Quote by Emmett F. Fields
Fraud quotes by Don Nickles
#71. Well, we want to make sure there's not securities fraud. #Quote by Don Nickles
Fraud quotes by John McCain
#72. War is wretched beyond description, and only a fool or a fraud could sentimentalize its cruel reality. #Quote by John McCain
Fraud quotes by Adam Nevill
#73. But it would be broadcast, and in the great public theatre of his age; that unregulated market of braying narcissists, that Wild West of disinformation and fraud, that infinite sea of piracy, the great electorate where the constituency of billions voted their approval with a click of a mouse. The internet. It brought governments down and rewrote history ... #Quote by Adam Nevill
Fraud quotes by Max Lucado
#74. When it comes to Christ, you've got to do the same. Call him crazy, or crown him as king. Dismiss him as a fraud, or declare him to be God. Walk away from him, or bow before him, but don't play games with him. #Quote by Max Lucado
Fraud quotes by Barry Commoner
#75. The environmental crisis is somber evidence of an insidious fraud hidden in the vaunted productivity and wealth of modern, technology-based society. This wealth has been gained by rapid short-term exploitation of the environmental system, but it has blindly accumulated a debt to nature-a debt so large and so pervasive that in the next generation it may, if unpaid, wipe out most of the wealth it has gained us. #Quote by Barry Commoner
Fraud quotes by Libba Bray
#76. It's as if I've inherited a skin I cannot quite fit, and so I walk about constantly pulling and and tugging, pinning and pruning, trying desperately to fill it out, hoping that no one will look at me struggling and say, 'That one there- she's a fraud, Look how she doesn't fit at all. #Quote by Libba Bray
Fraud quotes by Gil Courtemanche
#77. You see, each country has a colour, a smell, and also a contagious sickness. In my country the sickness is complacency. In France it's arrogance, and in the United States it's ignorance."

"What about Rwanda?"

"Easy power and impunity. Here, there's total disorder. To someone who has a little money or powere, everything that seems forbidden elsewhere looks permissible and possible. All it takes is to dare it. Someone who's simply a liar in my country can be a fraud artist here, and the fraud artist gets to be a big-time thief. Chaos and most of all poverty give him powers he wouldn't have elsewhere. #Quote by Gil Courtemanche
Fraud quotes by Neal Boortz
#78. Let's just make this easy. I'm in favor of a Constitutional amendment that would read something like this:

'Neither the federal government, nor any state or local government shall make any activity a crime unless said activity violates another person's right to life, liberty, or property, either through force or fraud.'

Could you live with that? Could you live with the thought that anyone in your community could do pretty much what they wish, so long as it doesn't interfere with anyone else? Now there's a definition of freedom--and it's something I suspect most of you just couldn't go along with. #Quote by Neal Boortz
Fraud quotes by John Stossel
#79. Fraud will always exist. Enforcement of anti-fraud laws is a useful deterrent, but in the end there's no substitute for investor vigilance. Government regulations provide a false sense of security - and that's worth less than no sense of security at all. #Quote by John Stossel
Fraud quotes by Edmund Burke
#80. The very name of a politician, a statesman, is sure to cause terror and hatred; it has always connected with it the ideas of treachery, cruelty, fraud, and tyranny. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Fraud quotes by Rudolf Rocker
#81. So long as millions of human beings in every country has to sell their labour-power to a small minority of owners, and to sink into the most wretched misery if they could find no buyers, the so called "equality before the law" remains a pious fraud, since the laws are made by those who find themselves in possession of the social wealth. But in the same way there can also be no talk of a "right over one's own person," for that right ends when one is compelled to submit to the economic dictation of another if he does not want to starve. #Quote by Rudolf Rocker
Fraud quotes by Felicia Day
#82. And all that time I was lying to my support group. I told the ladies, "Sure! I'm writing!" when I wasn't. Yes, I could have filled all those newfound minutes with actual work, but I had no confidence in myself. I was a fraud. Who was I to pick up a pen and expect anything good to come out of it? I expected perfection as soon as the pencil hit the paper, and since that's impossible, I couldn't get myself to start. Then I felt guilty about not starting, which made me want to start even less. And with no game to bury the feelings, I got very depressed. No wonder I didn't book any acting jobs in the last half of 2006. No one wanted to hire a clinically depressed person to sell snack foods. #Quote by Felicia Day
Fraud quotes by Jerry Della Femina
#83. The whole idea of a spokesman is a joke and a fraud if you drop someone like a hot potato if there's controversy. #Quote by Jerry Della Femina
Fraud quotes by Clint Eastwood
#84. President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Fraud quotes by Ottobah Cugoano Known As John Stuart
#85. Any property taken away from others, whether by stealth, fraud or violence, must be wrong: but to take away men themselves, and keep them in slavery, must be worse. #Quote by Ottobah Cugoano Known As John Stuart
Fraud quotes by Ludwig Wittgenstein
#86. If a person tells me he has been to the worst places I have no reason to judge him; but if he tells me it was his superior wisdom that enabled him to go there, then I know he is a fraud. #Quote by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Fraud quotes by Diane Ravitch
#87. What matters most is for the school, the district, and the state to be able to say that more students have reached "proficiency." This sort of fraud ignores the students' interests while promoting the interests of adults who take credit for nonexistent improvements. #Quote by Diane Ravitch
Fraud quotes by Ron Paul
#88. To condemn free-market capitalism because of anything going on today makes no sense. There is no evidence that capitalism exists today. We are deeply involved in an interventionist-planned economy that allows major benefits to accrue to the politically connected of both political parties. One may condemn the fraud and the current system, but it must be called by its proper names - Keynesian inflationism, interventionism, and corporatism. #Quote by Ron Paul
Fraud quotes by Mike Sutton
#89. is a mere tri-coincidence, improbable beyond rational belief, that three out of only seven naturalists known to have cited Matthew's prior-published book before 1858, containing the full hypothesis of natural selection, played such pivotal roles at the very epicenter of influence and facilitation of Darwin's and Wallace's published work on natural selection. #Quote by Mike Sutton
Fraud quotes by Jay Leno
#90. According to The New York Times, the mob has now gotten into Medicare fraud. But the good news is, when they do break your legs there's a good chance you're covered. #Quote by Jay Leno
Fraud quotes by Emil M. Cioran
#91. After so much imposture, so much fraud, it is comforting to contemplate a beggar. He, at least, neither lies nor lies to himself: his doctrine, if he has one, he embodies; work he dislikes, and he proves it; wanting to possess nothing, he cultivates his impoverishment, the condition of his freedom. His thought is resolved into his being and his being into his thought. He has nothing, he is himself, he endures: to live on a footing with eternity is to live from day to day, from hand to mouth. Thus, for him, other men are imprisoned in illusion. If he depends on them, he takes his revenge by studying them, a specialist in the underbelly of "noble" sentiments. His sloth, of a very rare quality, truly "delivers" him from a world of fools and dupes. About renunciation he knows more than many of your esoteric works. To be convinced of this, you need only walk out into the street … But you prefer the texts that teach mendicancy. Since no practical consequence accompanies your meditations, it will not be surprising that the merest bum is worth more than you … Can we conceive a Buddha faithful to his truths and to his palace? One is not "delivered-alive" and still a land-owner. I reject the generalization of the lie, I repudiate those who exhibit their so-called "salvation" and prop it with a doctrine which does not emanate from themselves. To unmask them, to knock them off the pedestal they have hoisted themselves on, to hold them up to scorn is a campaign no one should remain indiff #Quote by Emil M. Cioran
Fraud quotes by A.W. Tozer
#92. For myself, I fear any kind of religious stir among Christians that does not lead to repentance and result in a sharp separation of the believer from the world. I am suspicious of any organized revival effort that is forced to play down the hard terms of the kingdom. No matter how attractive the movement may appear, if it is not founded in righteousness and nurtured in humility it is not of God. If it exploits the flesh it is a religious fraud and should not have the support of any God-fearing Christian. Only that is of God which honors the Spirit and prospers at the expense of the human ego. "That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord" (1 Corinthians 1:31). #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Fraud quotes by Michael Rubbinaccio
#93. Green recorded these initial thoughts about government: "Either the people will pay direct taxes, or they will pay none if they know it; and if they don't know when they pay taxes, it is quite time for the prudent, economical administration of government that they did. The Treasury should just supply the moderate wants of the administration of government; an overflowing treasury brings with it corruption and fraud. It has been the curse of nations, and, profiting by the experience of the past, it becomes the present to avoid the instruments of their overflow. #Quote by Michael Rubbinaccio
Fraud quotes by Greg LeMond
#94. If Lance is clean, it is the greatest comeback in the history of sports. If he isn't, it would be the greatest fraud. #Quote by Greg LeMond
Fraud quotes by Muhammad Ibn Bashir
#95. The Hip-Hop generation is a fraud. A farce. It's a generation of multi-million dollar stars with little to no positive impact on the "hood" that carries their jocks. It's a generation of images that make you fiend for the flavor, but also attacks your core of values. It's a generation of brilliance, with no one having a sense or an ounce of education. It's a generation of computers and videos and no sense of history and context. #Quote by Muhammad Ibn Bashir
Fraud quotes by Thomas Paine
#96. If anything had or could have a value equal to gold and silver, it would require no tender law; and if it had not that value it ought not to have such a law; and, therefore, all tender laws are tyrannical and unjust and calculated to support fraud and oppression. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Fraud quotes by Sarah Waters
#97. We were thinking of secrets. Real secrets, and snide. Too many to count. When I try now to sort out who knew what and who knew nothing, who knew everything and who was a fraud, I have to stop and give it up, it makes my head spin. #Quote by Sarah Waters
Fraud quotes by Thomas Sowell
#98. Media bias in editorials and columns is one thing. Media fraud in reporting 'facts' in news stories is something else ... The issue is not what various journalists or news organizations' editorial views are. The issue is the transformation of news reporting into ideological spin, along with self-serving taboos and outright fraud. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Fraud quotes by Jay Leno
#99. A jury found former Enron sleezeballs Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling guilty of fraud and conspiracy. Ken Lay? That's not a good name to have when you're going to prison. And Kenny Boy ain't too good either ... I guess in prison they'll have done to them what they did to the stockholders. #Quote by Jay Leno
Fraud quotes by John Catsimatidis
#100. What transpired at Semgroup was no less than a $500 billion fraud on the people of the world. #Quote by John Catsimatidis
Fraud quotes by George Orwell
#101. A society becomes totalitarian when its structure becomes flagrantly artificial: that is, when its ruling class has lost its function but succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud. #Quote by George Orwell
Fraud quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#102. Be informed, also, that this good and savoury Parish is the home of Hectors, Trapanners, Biters who all go under the general appelation of Rooks. Here are all the Jilts, Cracks, Prostitutes, Night-walkers, Whores, Linnen-lifters, who are like so many Jakes, Privies, Houses of Office, Ordures, Excrements, Easments and piles of Sir-reverence: the whores of Ratcliffe High-way smell of Tarpaulin and stinking Cod from their continuall Traffick with seamen's Breeches. There are other such wretched Objects about these ruined Lanes, all of them lamentable Instances of Vengeance. And it is not strange (as some think) how they will haunt the same Districts and will not leave off their Crimes until they are apprehended, for these Streets are their Theatre. Theft, Whoredom and Homicide peep out of the very Windows of their Souls; Lying, Perjury, Fraud, Impudence and Misery are stamped upon their very Countenances as now they walk within the Shaddowe of my Church. #Quote by Peter Ackroyd
Fraud quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#103. The essential function of the State is to maintain peace, justice, law, and order, and to protect the individual citizen against aggression, violence, theft, and fraud. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
Fraud quotes by Carol Loomis
#104. I will confess that almost all my inspiration has come from one emotion: fear. And terrible dread of the moment when I will finally be exposed as a fraud. #Quote by Carol Loomis
Fraud quotes by Julian Assange
#105. I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud. #Quote by Julian Assange
Fraud quotes by Steven Magee
#106. We live in blatantly corrupt times. #Quote by Steven Magee
Fraud quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#107. Then from the world all spirituality will be extinct, all moral perfection will be extinct, all sweet-souled sympathy for religion will be extinct, all ideality will be extinct; and in its place will reign the duality of lust and luxury as the male and female deities, with money as its priest, fraud, force, and competition its ceremonies, and the human soul its sacrifice. Such a thing can never be. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Fraud quotes by Elena Ferrante
#108. But when do people ever speak truthfully and when do things ever happen unexpectedly? You know better than me that it's all a fraud and one thing follows another and then another. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Fraud quotes by Jojo Moyes
#109. I could barely even say Will's name. And listening to their tales of family relationships, of thirty-year marriages, shared houses, lives, children, I felt like a fraud. I had been a carer for someone for six months. I'd loved him, and watched him end his life. How could these strangers possibly understand what Will and I had been to each other during that time? How could I explain the way we had so swiftly understood each other, the shorthand jokes, the blunt truths and raw secrets? How could I convey the way those short months had changed the way I felt about everything? The way he had skewed my world so totally that it made no sense without him in it? #Quote by Jojo Moyes

Fraud quotes by Stellah Mupanduki
#113. We must love the Holy Spirit who breathed his healing books through a mortal vessel for all people of all race and gender to be healed and saved from demise. We must do away with hate, discrimination, abuse, malice, dissension, fraud and all injustice. This will enable sound healing for all people and this world will be healed from terminal, chronic and rare diseases, the Lord God Almighty, will remove all natural disasters and atrocities from happening. Other than that, there is no peace and salvation in this world. #Quote by Stellah Mupanduki
Fraud quotes by Walter Raleigh
#114. All, or the greatest part of men that have aspired to riches or power, have attained thereunto either by force or fraud, and what they have by craft or cruelty gained, to cover the foulness of their fact, they call purchase, as a name more honest. Howsoever, he that for want of will or wit useth not those means, must rest in servitude and poverty. #Quote by Walter Raleigh
Fraud quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#115. Political Freedom without economic equality is a pretense, a fraud, a lie; and the workers want no lying. #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin

Fraud quotes by Jayce O'Neal
#117. Great words, golden promises, built up exploits plus lack of character equals low down dirty fraud. #Quote by Jayce O'Neal
Fraud quotes by Michael Shermer
#118. The Liberty Principle: It is a higher moral principle to always seek liberty with someone else's liberty in mind, and never seek liberty when it leads to someone else's loss of liberty through force or fraud. The Liberty Principle is an extrapolation from the fundamental principle of all liberty as practiced in Western society: The freedom to believe and act as we choose so long as our beliefs and actions do not infringe on the equal freedom of others. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Fraud quotes by Flint McGlaughlin
#119. As our initial click fraud research study showed last year, there is an obvious problem in the online advertising world. The challenge is that I'm not sure anyone really knows the extent of the click fraud problem. #Quote by Flint McGlaughlin
Fraud quotes by Andrew Fastow
#120. I didn't set out to commit a crime. I certainly didn't set out to hurt anyone. When I was working at Enron, you know, I was kind of a hero, because I helped the company make its numbers every quarter. And I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was smart... but I wasn't. I wake up every morning, and I take out my prison ID card, which I have with me here today. And it makes certain that I remember all the people. I remember that I harmed so many people in what I did. It encourages me to try to do the little things that I can to make amends for what I did. #Quote by Andrew Fastow
Fraud quotes by Colson Whitehead
#121. As if these daily humiliations and sacrifices mean something, are tallied by the ones who keep the books. Tomorrow we pick up where we left off. Sleep tight. Sleep deep. Sleep the sleep of the successful because somehow you made it through the day without anyone finding out that you are a complete fraud. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
Fraud quotes by Barbara Kruger
#122. Art is as heavy as sorrow, as light as a breeze, as bright as an idea, as pretty as a picture, as funny as money, and as fugitive as fraud! #Quote by Barbara Kruger

Fraud quotes by Sophocles
#126. Things gained through unjust fraud are never secure. #Quote by Sophocles
Fraud quotes by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia
#127. The deepest motivation for a lot of artists is obviously the one they all share: their great fear they are a fraud. It's a joke. In my case the problem is not that I don't question myself. It's just that I question other people even more ... #Quote by Philip-Lorca DiCorcia
Fraud quotes by Frederick Douglass
#128. My theory of self-made men is, then, simply this; that they are men of work. Whether or not such men have acquired material, moral or intellectual excellence, honest labor faithfully, steadily and persistently pursued, is the best, if not the only, explanation of their success ... All human experience proves over and over again, that any success which comes through meanness, trickery, fraud and dishonour, is but emptiness and will only be a torment to its possessor. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Fraud quotes by Goldwin Smith
#129. But if anyone supposes that there was no commercial fraud in the Middle Ages, let him study the commercial legislation of England for that period, and his mind will be satisfied, if he has a mind to be satisfied and not only a fancy to run away with him. #Quote by Goldwin Smith
Fraud quotes by Richard Whately
#130. The love of admiration leads to fraud, much more than the love of commendation; but, on the other hand, the latter is much more likely to spoil our: good actions by the substitution of an inferior motive. #Quote by Richard Whately
Fraud quotes by Charlie Munger
#131. Creative accounting is an absolute curse to a civilization. One could argue that double-entry bookkeeping was one of history's great advances. Using accounting for fraud and folly is a disgrace. In a democracy, it often takes a scandal to trigger reform. Enron was the most obvious example of a business culture gone wrong in a long, long time. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Fraud quotes by Susan Blackmore
#132. It was just over thirty years ago that I had the dramatic out-of-body experience that convinced me of the reality of psychic phenomena and launched me on a crusade to show those closed-minded scientists that consciousness could reach beyond the body and that death was not the end. Just a few years of careful experiments changed all that. I found no psychic phenomena - only wishful thinking, self-deception, experimental error and, occasionally, fraud. I became a sceptic. #Quote by Susan Blackmore
Fraud quotes by James Surowiecki
#133. The challenge for capitalism is that the things that breed trust also breed the environment for fraud. #Quote by James Surowiecki
Fraud quotes by Susanna Clarke
#134. The more apparatus a magician carries about with him - coloured powders, stuffed cats, magical hats and so forth - the greater the fraud you will eventually discover him to be! #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Fraud quotes by Stephen Colbert
#135. Don't be afraid to make things up. Never fear being exposed as a fraud. Experts make things up all the time. They're qualified to. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Fraud quotes by Leonardo Da Vinci
#136. Lust is the cause of generation
Appetite is the support of life
Fear or timidity is the prolongation of life, and
Fraud the preservation of its instruments. #Quote by Leonardo Da Vinci

Fraud quotes by C.D. Reiss
#142. I was a small man in a big world I didn't understand. A fool and a fraud. A gambler whose luck had run out. I was a meaningless ball of thoughts and fears with no control over the way my life unfurled.
But with her, I wasn't afraid. #Quote by C.D. Reiss
Fraud quotes by Iain Pears
#143. I did not like Ravenscliff by instinct, but I was beginning to find him fascinating. A book-reading, socialist-sympathising, child-begetting capitalist fraud. #Quote by Iain Pears
Fraud quotes by John Andreas Widtsoe
#144. Fraud and deceit have been practiced since the beginning of history ... Brass has been called gold; glass has been sold as diamonds; and poison has been hawked as excellent food. The story of fraud throughout the ages forms an ugly chapter of human history. #Quote by John Andreas Widtsoe
Fraud quotes by Willem De Kooning
#145. Style is a fraud. I always felt the Greeks were hiding behind their columns. #Quote by Willem De Kooning
Fraud quotes by Mitchell Zuckoff
#146. I know that plenty of folks have issues with Social Security, but I'd urge them to confront it on its own terms. Calling it a Ponzi scheme is misleading and does more to cloud the issue than it does to illuminate it. And yes, I do know that unless changes are made, the current system is unsustainable. But that doesn't mean it's fraud. #Quote by Mitchell Zuckoff
Fraud quotes by Michael Ben Zehabe
#147. The Shulamite lives by a different set of values. One of the most horrible frauds perpetrated on western couples is 'trust your feelings' or 'follow your heart.' Solomon's family must never be left to whims. A wise Shulamite does not make life decisions based on feelings, alone. She takes God's point-of-view: 'He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool; But whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.'
Pr 28:26
For young couples, a hard lesson to learn is: Their hearts will lie to them.
pg 3 #Quote by Michael Ben Zehabe
Fraud quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#148. When the business man rebukes the idealism of his office-boy, it is commonly in some such speech as this: "Ah, yes, when one is young, one has these ideals in the abstract and these castles in the air; but in middle age they all break up like clouds, and one comes down to a belief in practical politics, to using the machinery one has and getting on with the world as it is." Thus, at least, venerable and philanthropic old men now in their honoured graves used to talk to me when I was a boy.But since then I have grown up and have discovered that these philanthropic old men were telling lies. What has really happened is exactly the opposite of what they said would happen. They said that I should lose my ideals and begin to believe in the methods of practical politicians. Now, I have not lost my ideals in the least; my faith in fundamentals is exactly what it always was. What I have lost is my old childlike faith in practical politics. I am still as much concerned as ever about the Battle of Armageddon; but I am not so much concerned about the General Election. As a babe I leapt up on my mother's knee at the mere mention of it. No; the vision is always solid and reliable. The vision is always a fact. It is the reality that is often a fraud. As much as I ever did, more than I ever did, I believe in Liberalism. But there was a rosy time of innocence when I believed in Liberals. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Fraud quotes by Charles Le Gai Eaton
#149. The agnostic has a very curious notion of religion. He is convinced that a man who says 'I believe in God' should at once become perfect; if this does not happen, then the believer must be a fraud and a hypocrite. He thinks that adherence to a religion is the end of the road, whereas it is in fact only the beginning of a very long and sometimes very rough road. He looks for consistency in religious people, however aware he may be of inconsistencies in himself #Quote by Charles Le Gai Eaton
Fraud quotes by Brandt Legg
#150. A funny word. E-lec-tion. Say it very slowly and it sounds disgusting. But if you say it just fast enough it almost sounds real, like it might even be legitimate #Quote by Brandt Legg
Fraud quotes by L. Neil Smith
#151. Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun movement (for the most part, politicians who enthusiastically advocate confiscatory taxation and government control of everything) realize that a populace is much easier to herd, loot and dispose of if it has been stripped of its weapons. The naked fraud and transparent fascism of victim disarmament must be eradicated through the repeal of all gun laws at every level of government. #Quote by L. Neil Smith
Fraud quotes by Michael Lewis
#152. When you're a conservative Republican, you never think people are making money by ripping other people off," he said. His mind was now fully open to the possibility. "I now realized there was an entire industry, called consumer finance, that basically existed to rip people off. #Quote by Michael Lewis

Fraud quotes by Eric Schneiderman
#154. If you have faith in the public sector, as I do, you must be the harshest critic of corruption, waste and fraud in government. #Quote by Eric Schneiderman
Fraud quotes by Bob Kahn
#155. In terms of dangers, such as viruses, fraud or identity theft, I don't think we were thinking about that at all when we got started. If we had been worried about that, the net might have been better today, but we might not have even got there. #Quote by Bob Kahn
Fraud quotes by Edmund Burke
#156. Fraud is the ready minister of injustice. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Fraud quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#157. Men are not governed by justice, but by law or persuasion. When they refuse to be governed by law or persuasion, they have to be governed by force or fraud, or both. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Fraud quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#158. Almost everything in social life is produced by rare but consequential shocks and jumps; all the while almost everything studied about social life focuses on the "normal," particularly with "bell curve" methods of inference that tell you close to nothing. Why? Because the bell curve ignores large deviations, cannot handle them, yet makes us confident that we have tamed uncertainty. Its nickname in this book is GIF, Great Intellectual Fraud. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Fraud quotes by Pat Buchanan
#159. Today, candor compels us to admit that our vaunted two-party system is a snare and a delusion, a fraud upon the nation. Our two parties have become nothing but two wings of the same bird of prey. #Quote by Pat Buchanan
Fraud quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#160. All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry. #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Fraud quotes by Robert Peate
#161. They support freedom for themselves and slavery for everyone else, and they use the freedom of the market to disguise this fact. Economic coercion is just a different form of force, which they couple with the fraud of calling it freedom. I was like them, but I will never be like them again. #Quote by Robert Peate
Fraud quotes by Cher
#162. I'm the female equivalent of a counterfeit $20 bill. Half of what you see is a pretty good reproduction, the rest is a fraud. #Quote by Cher
Fraud quotes by Lance Armstrong
#163. Lance Armstrong is not the biggest fraud in the history of world sport. US Postal was not the most sophisticated doping programme. #Quote by Lance Armstrong
Fraud quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#164. Men seldom rise from low condition to high rank without employing either force or fraud, unless that rank should be attained either by gift or inheritance. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Fraud quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
#165. The life even of a just man is a round of petty frauds; that of a knave a series of greater. We degrade life by our follies and vices, and then complain that the unhappiness which is only their accompaniment is inherent in the constitution of things. #Quote by Christian Nestell Bovee
Fraud quotes by Michael Parenti
#166. All conservative ideologies justify existing inequities as the natural order of things, inevitable outcomes of human nature. If the very rich are naturally so much more capable than the rest of us, why must they be provided with so many artificial privileges under the law, so many bailouts, subsidies and other special considerations - at our expense? Their "naturally superior talents" include unprincipled and illegal subterfuge such as price-fixing, stock manipulation, insider training, fraud, tax evasion, the legal enforcement of unfair competition, ecological spoliation, harmful products and unsafe work conditions. One might expect naturally superior people not to act in such rapacious and venal ways. Differences in talent and capacity as might exist between individuals do not excuse the crimes and injustices that are endemic to the corporate business system. #Quote by Michael Parenti
Fraud quotes by James Russell Lowell
#167. May is a pious fraud of the almanac A ghastly parody of real Spring Shaped out of snow and breathed with eastern wind. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Fraud quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#168. Bush the father did well in placing his sons as governors and did not forget to pass on the expertise in fraud from the leaders of the region to Florida to use it in critical moments. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden
Fraud quotes by Ron Paul
#169. Government is wasteful, fraudulent, and abusive by its very nature. To get rid of waste, fraud, and abuse, government power has to be dealt with. Government's legitimacy has to be challenged. Its claims of success must be refuted. The people who desire peace and prosperity must accept the fact that government and the politicians never deliver peace or prosperity. #Quote by Ron Paul

#171. The Congressional Black Caucus is a moral fraud. It's amazing how many people are afraid of saying that #Quote by Dennis Prager
Fraud quotes by David Lammy
#172. Let me speak frankly: separate but equal is a fraud. It is the language that tried to push Rosa Parks to the back of the bus. It is the motif that determined that black and white people could not possibly drink from the same water fountain, eat at the same table or use the same toilets. #Quote by David Lammy
Fraud quotes by Hermann Broch
#173. Young man, until you know that all names are false you know nothing; not even the clothes on your body are what they seem to be. #Quote by Hermann Broch
Fraud quotes by Robert Pollack
#174. The freedom to make and admit mistakes is at the core of the scientific process. If we are asked to forswear error, or worse, to say that error means fraud, then we cannot function as scientists. #Quote by Robert Pollack
Fraud quotes by Anne Lamott
#175. And my fear of failure has been lifelong and deep. If you are what you do- and I think my parents may have accidentally given me this idea- and you do poorly, what then? It's over; you're wiped out. All those prophecies you heard in the dark have come true, and people can see the real you, see what a schmendrick you are, what a fraud. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Fraud quotes by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
#176. Any opposition not based on rationalism or science or experience will one day or other, reveal the fraud, selfishness, lies and conspiracies. #Quote by Periyar E.V. Ramasamy
Fraud quotes by Mark Kurlansky
#177. One of the gabelle's most irritating inventions was the sel du devoir, the salt duty. Every person in the Grande Gabelle over the age of eight was required to purchase seven kilograms (15.4 pounds) of salt each year at a fixed high government price. This was far more salt than could possibly be used, unless it was for making salt fish, sausages, hams, and other salt-cured goods. But using the sel du devoir to make salted products was illegal, and, if caught, the perpetrator would be charged with the crime of faux saunage, salt fraud, which carried severe penalties. Many simple acts were grounds for a charge of faux saunage. In the Camargue, shepherds who let their flocks drink the salty pond water could be charged with avoiding the gabelle. #Quote by Mark Kurlansky
Fraud quotes by Harper Lee
#178. I had a feeling that I shouldn't be here listening to this sinful man who had mixed children and didn't care who knew it, but he was fascinating. I had never encountered a being who deliberately perpetrated fraud against himself. But why had he entrusted us with his deepest secret? I asked him why. 'Because you're children and you can unterstand it,' he said. #Quote by Harper Lee
Fraud quotes by Lysander Spooner
#179. The pretense that the "abolition of slavery" was either a motive or justification for the war, is a fraud of the same character with that of "maintaining the national honor." Who, but such usurpers, robbers, and murderers as they, ever established slavery? Or what government, except one resting upon the sword, like the one we now have, was ever capable of maintaining slavery? And why did these men abolish slavery? Not from any love of liberty in general - not as an act of justice to the black man himself, but only "as a war measure," and because they wanted his assistance, and that of his friends, in carrying on the war they had undertaken for maintaining and intensifying that political, commercial, and industrial slavery, to which they have subjected the great body of the people, both black and white. #Quote by Lysander Spooner
Fraud quotes by Steven Magee
#180. The police can be more corrupt than the criminals. #Quote by Steven Magee
Fraud quotes by Lydia Leonard
#181. As actors, you always have that moment thinking you've been absolutely terrible or a fraud. #Quote by Lydia Leonard
Fraud quotes by Conrad Black
#182. There is a legitimate concern about wealth distribution in the United States, but the answer is not to scapegoat any individual who makes over $200,000 per year and to try to sell the fraud that the government can equitably take the money of those who have earned it and give it to those who haven't. #Quote by Conrad Black
Fraud quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#183. Out of the ashes of misanthropy benevolence rises again; we find many virtues where we had imagined all was vice, many acts of disinterested friendship where we had fancied all was calculation and fraud
and so gradually from the two extremes we pass to the proper medium; and, feeling that no human being is wholly good or wholly base, we learn that true knowledge of mankind which induces us to expect little and forgive much. The world cures alike the optimist and the misanthrope. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Fraud quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#184. they hunted and the plants they gathered. Rather than heralding a new era of easy living, the Agricultural Revolution left farmers with lives generally more difficult and less satisfying than those of foragers. Hunter-gatherers spent their time in more stimulating and varied ways, and were less in danger of starvation and disease. The Agricultural Revolution certainly enlarged the sum total of food at the disposal of humankind, but the extra food did not translate into a better diet or more leisure. Rather, it translated into population explosions and pampered elites. The average farmer worked harder than the average forager, and got a worse diet in return. The Agricultural Revolution was history's biggest fraud.2 Who was responsible? Neither kings, #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Fraud quotes by Carl Sagan
#185. After hearing much from his patients about alleged faith-healing, a Minnesota physician named William Nolen spent a year and a half trying to track down the most striking cases. Was there clear medical evidence that the disease was really present before the 'cure'? If so, had the disease actually disappeared after the cure, or did we just have the healer's or the patient's say-so? He uncovered many cases of fraud, including the first exposure in America of 'psychic surgery'. But he found not one instance of cure of any serious organic (non-psychogenic) disease. There were no cases where gallstones or rheumatoid arthritis, say, were cured, much less cancer or cardiovascular disease. When a child's spleen is ruptured, Nolen noted, perform a simple surgical operation and the child is completely better. But take that child to a faith-healer and she's dead in a day. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Fraud quotes by Milton Friedman
#186. There is one and only one social responsibility of business–to use it resources and engage in activities designed to increase its profits so long as it stays within the rules of the game, which is to say, engages in open and free competition without deception or fraud #Quote by Milton Friedman

#188. The criminal law needs to be improved to meet new forms of crime, but to denounce financial devices which are useful and legitimate because use is made of them for fraud, is ridiculous and unworthy of the age in which we live. #Quote by William Graham Sumner
Fraud quotes by Loretta Lynch
#189. Those who perpetrate fraud against our financial institutions will be met with the full force of law enforcement. #Quote by Loretta Lynch
Fraud quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#190. One of the more ignominious features of love was that you could only express it with cliches ... it made you sound like a fraud at a time when you were blazing with sincerity. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Fraud quotes by John Edward Redmond
#191. Well, we know that eighteen years after that solemn declaration it was disregarded, and the Irish Parliament, which lasted for five hundred years, was destroyed by the Act of Union. Gentlemen, the Act of Union was carried by force and fraud, by treachery and falsehood. #Quote by John Edward Redmond
Fraud quotes by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
#192. The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections. #Quote by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
Fraud quotes by Scarlett Curtis
#193. Why do we legislate hard against practices like fraud and not against exploitation of women's bodies? How have we got to a point as a community where we value money over people's dignity? My guess would be because where fraud is taking place, institutions are losing money, whereas where exploitation of images of women's bodies is taking place, institutions are directly or indirectly, making money or, at the very least, not losing any... So where's the economic incentive to defend against the human cost? It is women who pay and culture that suffers. #Quote by Scarlett Curtis
Fraud quotes by Gurazada Apparao
#194. If a person trusts you and you deceive him, it's fraud. If a person doesn't trust you, it's politics. #Quote by Gurazada Apparao
Fraud quotes by Ben Stein
#195. It's really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn't even more fraud. After all, with no God, there's no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it. #Quote by Ben Stein
Fraud quotes by Hugo Chavez
#196. Mr. Bush is an illegitimate President. In Florida, his brother Jeb deleted many black voters from the electoral registers. So this President is the result of a fraud. #Quote by Hugo Chavez
Fraud quotes by David Rakoff
#197. The central drama of my life is about being a fraud, alas. That's a complete lie, really; the central drama of my life is actually about being lonely, and staying thin, but fraudulence gets a fair amount of play. #Quote by David Rakoff
Fraud quotes by Ida Tarbell
#198. Very often people who admit the facts, who are willing to see that Mr. Rockefeller has employed force and fraud to secure his ends, justify him by declaring, 'It's business.' That is, 'it's business' has come to be a legitimate excuse for hard dealing, sly tricks, special privileges. #Quote by Ida Tarbell
Fraud quotes by John Perry Barlow
#199. I have a feeling Virtual Reality will further expose the conceit that 'reality' is a fact. It will provide another reminder of the seamless continuity between the world outside and the world within, delivering another major hit to the old fraud of objectivity. 'Real,' as Kevin Kelly put it, 'is going to be one of the most relative words we'll have.' #Quote by John Perry Barlow
Fraud quotes by Omar N. Bradley
#200. It is to the United States that all freemen look for the light and the hope of the world. Unless we dedicate ourselves completely to this struggle, unless we combat hunger with food, fear with trust, suspicion with faith, fraud with justice - and threats with power, nations will surrender to the futility, the hopelessness, the panic on which wars feed. #Quote by Omar N. Bradley
