Murder quotes by R.J. Blain
#1. What can I say? He's a man, and as my queen and bride says, men are stupid. Especially me, for having taught our son to be a man, too, who in turn taught his son. We're a plague, us men. At least we're handsome enough to keep around despite being stupid enough to tempt our women to murder us." The #Quote by R.J. Blain
Murder quotes by Nikki Ferguson
#2. Every town has a psychopath or two. Not just the everyday crazy person, either. Not like Crazy Larry, the paint huffing weirdo peddling around town on a child-sized Huffy ranting about the end of the world, or the old lady dressed in rags who hands out filthy doll clothes to the kiddies. I'm talking about the cold, never remorseful lunatic, who may never have seemed insane up until the day he hacked apart his mother and shoved her stinking corpse into the attic. This town is overflowing with them; bloodcurdling murderers like Kenny Wayne Hilbert, Charlie Fender ... Orland Winthro. And Al, the crazy had to come from somewhere. #Quote by Nikki Ferguson
Murder quotes by Eric Hoffer
#3. When we lose our individual independence in the corporateness of a mass movement, we find a new freedom - freedom to hate, bully, lie, torture, murder and betray without shame and remorse. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Murder quotes by Aleksander Kwasniewski
#4. Following the Second World War, we are a country of one ethnicity. After the moving of the borders, after the tragedy of the Holocaust and the murder of Polish Jews, we don't have large minority groups. #Quote by Aleksander Kwasniewski
Murder quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#5. I believe in energy like dark energies. I believe that when a family moves into a house where six murders took place, there's going to be some bad juju in that house. But then again what the hell is wrong with you to be moving in that house to begin with? #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Murder quotes by Gautama Buddha
#6. The evils of the body are murder, theft, and adultery; of the tongue, lying, slander, abuse and idle talk; of the mind, covetousness, hatred and error. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Murder quotes by Deepak Chopra
#7. Religion has failed us. Christ was not a Christian. Buddha was not a Buddhist. Mohammed was not a Mohammedan. And yet ever since the dawn of history, we have engaged in conflict and war and terrorism and murder and racism and ethnocentrism and bigotry and prejudice in the name of God. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Murder quotes by Sally Mann
#8. I will confess that in the interest of narrative I secretly hoped I'd find a payload of southern gothic: deceit and scandal, alcoholism, domestic abuse, car crashes, bogeymen, clandestine affairs, dearly loved and disputed family land, abandonments, blow jobs, suicides, hidden addictions, the tragically early death of a beautiful bride, racial complications, vast sums of money made and lost, the return of a prodigal son, and maybe even bloody murder. If any of this stuff lay hidden in my family history, I had the distinct sense I'd find it in those twine-bound boxes in the attic. And I did: all of it and more. #Quote by Sally Mann
Murder quotes by Amanda Hocking
#9. I heard you're campaigning on my behalf." He walked over to me. "That wouldn't be because you'd miss me too much if I were gone,would it?"
"Don't be absurd," I scoffed. "I don't condone murder, even for people like you."
"People like me,huh?" He cocked an eyebrow. "You mean devilishly handsome, debonair young men who come to sweep rebellious princesses of their feet?"
"You came to kidnap me, not sweep me off my feet," I said,but he waved his hand at the idea.
"Semantics. #Quote by Amanda Hocking
Murder quotes by Seneca.
#10. How many men soever you slay, you will never kill your successor. #Quote by Seneca.
Murder quotes by Smedley D. Butler
#11. There are only two reasons why you should ever be asked to give your youngsters. One is defense of our homes. The other is the defense of our Bill of Rights and particularly the right to worship God as we see fit. Every other reason advanced for the murder of young men is a racket, pure and simple. #Quote by Smedley D. Butler
Murder quotes by Mark  Lawrence
#12. Murder the wrong man and he'll kill you. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Murder quotes by Debra Holland
#13. I'll get right to the point," Mr. Carter said. "For the last year, we've been searching for a sheriff for our town." He grimaced. "Wouldn't have thought finding one would be so difficult."...
"She hasn't said yes," Carter commented. He slanted her an inquiring glance. "Well, K.C. Granger. Will you have us?"
At the marriage-vow-sounding question, K.C. felt a smile play around her lips, perhaps the first one since Charles' murder. In keeping with the formality of his question, and because a little imp of humor prompted her, she said, "I do. #Quote by Debra Holland
Murder quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#14. Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She'd grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father. She'd grown up knowing that school shootings were more common than winning the lottery. She'd grown up in an age of terror. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Murder quotes by Anthony Hulse
#15. I'll sing you a tale,
Of evil and woe,
On his way to school, was little Joe,
All that was found was his bloody coat,
His bastard tormentor had cut his throat. #Quote by Anthony Hulse

Murder quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#17. My soul always reverts to the Old Testament and to Shakespeare. There at least one feels that it's human beings talking. There people hate, people love, people murder their enemy and curse his descendants through all generations, there people sin. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Murder quotes by Julius Streicher
#18. The victory will be only entirely and finally achieved when the whole world is free of Jews. #Quote by Julius Streicher
Murder quotes by Aravind Adiga
#19. But isn't it likely that everyone in this world ... has killed someone or other on their way to the top? ... All I wanted was a chance to be a man
and for that, one murder is enough. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Murder quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#20. The modern evil, we have said, greatly turns on this: that
people do not see that the exception proves the rule. Thus it may
or may not be right to kill a murderer; but it can only conceivably
be right to kill a murderer because it is wrong to kill a man. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Murder quotes by J. Sidna Allen
#21. Clothed in the majesty of the law one may get away with murder, but lacking the law's prestige one defends himself at the risk of life and liberty. #Quote by J. Sidna Allen
Murder quotes by Roger Zelazny
#22. We fought.'
'A duel?'
'Nothing that formal. A simultaneous decision to murder one another is more like it. #Quote by Roger Zelazny

Murder quotes by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
#25. It means that all witches who hunt will turn their full attention on the ones Dominique considers responsible for my murder. They will call on their allies. They will track down anyone they have ever know to have a connection to the killers, without worrying about messy treaties with SingleEarth or other normally respected neutral havens."

"I don't suppose they care that your are not, in fact, dead," Nikolas said.

Sarah shook her head. "In their eyes, I am. #Quote by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Murder quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#26. The thought that murders the wish that fathered it will be overtaken by the revenge of stupidity #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Murder quotes by Tana French
#27. Murder is a high-pressure squad and a small one, only twenty permanent members and under any added strain (anyone leaving, anyone new, too much work, too little work), it tends to develop a tinge of cabin-fevery hysteria, full of complicated alliances and frantic rumors. #Quote by Tana French
Murder quotes by Julia Fine
#28. There is no better show of human power than to be a proud purveyor of death, to attempt slaughter. To kill for sport, for indulgence, speaks to the infinite depths of human desire, an innate need to demonstrate the irreversible, to have lasting effect. #Quote by Julia Fine
Murder quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#29. BRANDY, n. A cordial composed on one part thunder-and-lightning, one part remorse, two parts bloody murder, one part death-hell-and-the-grave and four parts clarified Satan. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Murder quotes by C.J. Box
#30. like to see Clay McCann thrown in prison because he doesn't like the idea of a man getting away with murder in his state, despite the weird legal circumstances of this one. #Quote by C.J. Box
Murder quotes by John Angell James
#31. We should never forget that our time is among the talents for which we must give account at the judgment of God. Time being not the least precious of these, will be required with a strictness proportionate to its value. Let us tremble at this idea, as well we may. We must be tried not only for what we have done - but for what we had time to do, yet neglected to do it. Not only for the hours spent in sin - but for those wasted in idleness. Let us beware of that mode of spending time which some call killing it, for this murder,like others, will not always be concealed - the hours destroyed in secret will appear when we least expect it, to the unspeakable terror and amazement of our souls - they arise from the dead, and fly away to heaven, where they might have carried better news, and there tell sad tales of us, which we shall be sure to hear of again, when we hold up our hands at the bar, and they shall come as so many swift witnesses against us! #Quote by John Angell James
Murder quotes by Amanda Quick
#32. In my experience there are only a handful of reasons for murder ... Jealousy, vengeance, greed, fear and pleasure ... Some killers enjoy the kill ... For them it is a great game, and for the most part they are the ones I hunt. #Quote by Amanda Quick
Murder quotes by M.L. Rio
#33. He was too spotless to talk of blood and murder like Macbeth, but in the red glare of the fire he no longer looked so angelic. Instead he was handsome the way you think of the devil as handsome - forbiddingly so. #Quote by M.L. Rio
Murder quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#34. War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living. We precipitate war out of our daily lives; and without a transformation in ourselves, there are bound to be national and racial antagonisms, the childish quarreling over ideologies, the multiplication of soldiers, the saluting of flags, and all the many brutalities that go to create organized murder. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Murder quotes by Susan Glaspell
#35. The biggest stories are written about the things which draw human beings closer together. #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Murder quotes by Gillian Flynn
#36. Nick Dunne took my pride and my dignity and my hope and my money. He took and took from me until I no longer existed. That's murder. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Murder quotes by Gillian Flynn
#37. I do know that framing your husband for your murder is beyond the pale of what an average would do. But it's so very necessary. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Murder quotes by Sebastian Junger
#38. The story about Bessie Goldberg that I heard from my parents was that a nice old lady had been killed down the street and an innocent black man went to prison for the crime. Meanwhile
unknown to anyone
a violent psychopath named Al was working alone at our house all day and probably committed the murder. In our family this story eventually acquired the tidy symbolism of a folk tale. Roy Smith was a stand-in for everything that was decent but utterly defenseless. Albert DeSalvo, of course, was a stand-in for pure random evil. #Quote by Sebastian Junger
Murder quotes by Katie Lowe
#39. In the face of murder, all life seems thrilling, all chaos and potential. #Quote by Katie Lowe
Murder quotes by John T. Flynn
#40. The so-called Christian virtues of humility, love, charity, personal freedom, the strong prohibitions against violence, murder, stealing, lying, cruelty-all these are washed away by war. The greatest hero is the one who kills the most people. Glamorous exploits in successful lying and mass stealing and heroic vengeance are rewarded with decorations and public acclaim. #Quote by John T. Flynn
Murder quotes by Chanel Miller
#41. What was unique about this crime, was that the perpetrator could suggest the victim experienced pleasure and people wouldn't bat an eye. There's no such thing as a good stabbing or bad stabbing, consensual murder or nonconsensual murder. #Quote by Chanel Miller
Murder quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#42. This was a syllogistic monstrosity even worse than the last, thought Wimsey. A man who could reason like that could not reason at all. He constructed a new syllogism for himself. The man who committed this murder was not a fool. Weldon is a fool. Therefore Weldon did not commit this murder. That appeared to be sound, so far as it went. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Murder quotes by Brooke McEldowney
#43. People of religious distinction maintain that human beings exclusively possess souls, on the strength of which they may gain admittance to heaven.

Only human beings lie, devise pogroms, murder for recreation, steal, libel, slander and perform crossword puzzles. This says nothing new about the condition of being human, but it does help to illuminate the special contributions of the soul. #Quote by Brooke McEldowney
Murder quotes by Herman Melville
#44. Men have committed murder for jealousy's sake, and anger's sake, and hatred's sake, and selfishness' sake, and spiritual pride's sake; but no man that ever I heard of, ever committed a diabolical murder for sweet charity's sake. #Quote by Herman Melville
Murder quotes by Victor J. Stenger
#45. It was not that I thought I was smarter. I had simply explored science and found what seemed to me a far more powerful authority. And, I did not steal or murder because I thought they were wrong, not because I feared damnation. #Quote by Victor J. Stenger
Murder quotes by David Wilber
#46. Truth is abortion's biggest enemy. That's why no defender of abortion actually defends abortion. They defend "reproductive rights" and "women's healthcare," which are deceptive euphemisms for what they're actually defending: the murder of baby humans. The reason is, deep down, everyone knows that abortion is murder, so the only way to defend such an obviously evil act is by distracting themselves and others from the reality of it. #Quote by David Wilber
Murder quotes by Serban Valentin Constantin Enache
#47. Sinister is the breath that fills our wings, for what are we? What are we beneath skin and feathers?" His question was not left without an answer; Magnus made good on it. "We are the children of incestuous and obscene demons. We are scavengers. We smell the scent of death carried forth by the winds. And once we are past our decade, our thirst for knowledge and survival dims; and we consider ourselves fortunate. For with age comes wisdom, and with age comes death. A murder of crows awaits us all. #Quote by Serban Valentin Constantin Enache
Murder quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#48. In the gates of Heaven, the war medals are nothing but the evidences of murder! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Murder quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#49. The most stormy ebullitions of passion, from blasphemy to murder, are less terrific than one single act of cool villainy. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Murder quotes by Tim Kreider
#50. The police, finding a corpse with twenty-eight stab wounds in a bathtub, suspected foul play. #Quote by Tim Kreider
Murder quotes by Jenn McKinlay
#51. Do not try to sidetrack me with sarcasm and a murder," Joyce said. "Mom. #Quote by Jenn McKinlay
Murder quotes by Donald Jeffries
#52. Questions surround nearly every aspect of the assassination. The chain
of possession regarding each piece of evidence was tainted beyond repair.
The presidential limousine, which represented the literal crime scene,
was taken over by officials immediately after JFK's body was carried into
Parkland Hospital and tampered with. The Secret Service apparently cleaned
up the limousine, washing away crucial evidence in the process. Obviously,
whatever bullet fragments or other material that was purportedly found
there became immediately suspect because of this. On November 26, the
windshield on the presidential limo was replaced.
The supposed murder weapon - a cheap, Italian Mannlicher-Carcano
rifle with a defective scope, allegedly ordered by Oswald through a post office
box registered to his purported alias, Alex Hidell - is similarly troublesome.
The two Dallas officers who discovered the rifle on the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository building, Seymour Weitzman and Eugene Boone,
both swore in separate affidavits that the weapon was a German Mauser. As
was to become all too common in this case, they would later each claim to be
"mistaken" in a curiously identical manner.
In fact, as late as midnight on November 22, Dallas District Attorney
Henry Wade would refer to the rifle as a Mauser when speaking to the press.
Local WFAA television reported the weapon found as both a German #Quote by Donald Jeffries
Murder quotes by John Grisham
#53. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Murder quotes by Scott Baio
#54. If I'm racist, don't think I would have directed shows like 'The Parkers' and 'The Wayans Brothers' or worked 41 episodes with Victoria Rowell on 'Diagnosis: Murder.' #Quote by Scott Baio
Murder quotes by George MacDonald
#55. Contempt is murder committed by the intellect, as hatred is murder committed by the heart. #Quote by George MacDonald
Murder quotes by Joseph Conrad
#56. They were no colonists; their administration was merely a squeeze, and nothing more, I suspect. They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force - nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind - as is very proper for those who tackle a darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means the taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look into it too much. What redeems it is the idea only. An idea at the back of it; not a sentimental pretence but an idea; and an unselfish belief in the idea - something you can set up, and bow down before, and offer a sacrifice to #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Murder quotes by Karen Rose
#57. You gotta fish or cut bait,man.This has gone on long enough. You're playing with fire, every damn time you walk in this bar. #Quote by Karen Rose
Murder quotes by Colum McCann
#58. She wanted to tell him so much, on the tarmac, the day he left. The world is run by brutal men and the surest proof is their armies. If they ask you to stand still, you should dance. If they ask you to burn the flag, wave it. If they ask you to murder, re-create. Theorem, anti-theorem, corollary, anti-corollary. Underline it twice. It's all there in the numbers. Listen to your mother. Listen to me, Joshua. Look me in the eyes. I have something to tell you. #Quote by Colum McCann
Murder quotes by Laura Sebastian
#59. Is it better to have your life ended by someone who hates you or someone who loves you? #Quote by Laura Sebastian
Murder quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#60. But I have a flash of Good News from the Police Atrocity front, which is heating up in Denver. ... Stand back! Good News is rare in the Criminal Justice System, but every once in a while you find it, and this is one of those times. To wit: the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has formally entered the Appeals trial of young Lisl Auman - the girl who remains locked up in a cell at the Colorado State Prison for the Rest of Her Life with No Possibility of Parole for a bogus crime she was never even Accused of committing. She is a living victim of a cold-blooded political trial that will cast a long shadow on Denver for many years to come. Lisl is the only person ever convicted in the United States for Felony Murder who was in police custody when the crime happened. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Murder quotes by Malcom Mackay
#61. Never hit a target you don't need to hit. Ever. One murder gets the police interested, two gets them excited.
(The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter) #Quote by Malcom Mackay
Murder quotes by J.D. Salinger
#62. We're freaks, the two of us, Franny and I. I'm a twenty-five-year-old freak and she's a twenty-one-year-old freak, and both those bastards are responsible. I swear to you, I could murder them both without batting an eyelash. The great teachers. The great emancipators. My God. I can't even sit down to lunch with a man any more and hold up my end of a decent conversation. I either get so bored or so goddamn preachy that if the son of a bitch had any sense, he'd break his chair over my head #Quote by J.D. Salinger
Murder quotes by Dennis Sharpe
#63. This guy sounds like all the bad guys from the last ten years of murder movies all rolled into one. Like he might be the worst of those books you have there. If he was real, and really like that, then I should arrest him, right?" Matthew asked, hoping he could show the boy that he would protect him, and he could tell him the truth now.
"No, Deputy. Because he is real, and he is really like that, and you should run. #Quote by Dennis Sharpe
Murder quotes by Jasper Fforde
#64. If it weren't for greed, intolerance, hate, passion and murder, you would have no works of art, no great buildings, no medical science, no Mozart, no Van Gough, no Muppets and no Louis Armstrong. #Quote by Jasper Fforde
Murder quotes by Ken Follett
#65. People think they're being saved from a Bolshevik revolution," Frunze said. "The Nazi press has them convinced that the Communists were about to launch a campaign of murder, arson, and poison in every town and village. #Quote by Ken Follett
Murder quotes by Andy Partridge
#66. Now that I'm out and I'm shouting in doorways Freed from a love more like murder I should be singing but in liberation Feel like a ship with no rudder. #Quote by Andy Partridge
Murder quotes by J.K. Rowling
#67. I welcome the opportunity to uphold our finest Wizarding traditions and values--' Like committing murder and cutting off people's ears, I suppose! Snape, headmaster! Snape in Dumbledore's study--Merlin's pants!" she shrieked, making both Harry and Ron jump. She leapt up from the table and hurtled from the room, shouting as she went, "I'll be back in a minute!"
"'Merlin's pants'?" repeated Ron, looking amused. "She must be upset. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Murder quotes by Robert Kroese
#68. She tried to kill us, Keane."
"You can't take attempted murder personally in this business, Fowler. #Quote by Robert Kroese
Murder quotes by Margaret Atwood
#69. Sometimes when I am dusting the mirror with the grapes I look at myself in it, although I know it is vanity. In the afternoon light of the parlour my skin is a pale mauve, like a faded bruise, and my teeth are greenish. I think of all the things that have been written about me - that I am inhuman female demon, that I am an innocent victim of a blackguard forced against my will and in danger of my own life, that I was too ignorant to know how to act and that to hang me would be judicial murder, that I am fond of animals, that I am very handsome with a brilliant complexion, that I have blue eyes, that I have green eyes, that I have auburn and also have brown hair, that I am tall and also not above the average height, that I am well and decently dressed, that I robbed a dead woman to appear so, that I am brisk and smart about my work, that I am of a sullen disposition with a quarrelsome temper, that I have the appearance of a person rather above my humble station, that I am a good girl with a pliable nature and no harm is told of me, that I am cunning and devious, that I am soft in the head and little better than an idiot. And I wonder, how can I be all of these different things at once? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Murder quotes by J.J. McAvoy
#70. Liam, soon-to-be-fucking-dead, Callahan was walking down the stairs - my fucking stairs - with his sex hair high and his green eyes sharper than razor blades. He was beautiful, and I almost regretted the fact that I would have to put a bullet in his head and then smash it through a fucking wall.
-Melody G. #Quote by J.J. McAvoy
Murder quotes by Alexis Hall
#71. It probably says something about the state of your love life that your girlfriend promising to try and murder slightly fewer people seems like a really sweet and romantic gesture. #Quote by Alexis Hall
Murder quotes by @hg47
#72. Three Moonie 65-megaton hydrogen bombs exploded nearly simultaneously at very high altitude. With no air around the bombs to absorb the initial blast of the explosions, and convert the energy into mechanical shock waves - - all the nuclear energy blasted out in its electromagnetic form. It was a brutally intense pulse of Compton recoil electrons and photoelectrons that created huge electric and magnetic fields that were MURDER on sensitive electronic equipment at tremendous distances. The electro-magnetic fields, coupled with electric and computer systems, producing huge voltage spikes in the circuits and damaging current surges along all signal paths, fusing precision engineered memory and micro-boards and virtual drives and CPUs into fried silicon laced junk! Nanobots to Nanoscrap in Nanoseconds! #Quote by @hg47
Murder quotes by Judith Spencer
#73. For its survival, the satanic cult demanded secrecy and obedience while it made brutality, even killing, appropriate. Denial and disavowal were inevitable responses to required behaviors so bizarre as to seem unreal, even to those who enacted them. What they could not deny or disavow, they could distort. They could blame the victims, who deserved to die for fighting or crying or for failing to fight or cry. They found encouragement for such a stance in a general culture accustomed to blaming victims for their misfortunes, and in specific contact with child victims eager to blame themselves. By believing that victims had a choice when there was none, they could see victims as culpable. They could even see the deaths as right and purposeful in the nobility of sacrifice. #Quote by Judith Spencer
Murder quotes by Stephanie Oakes
#74. Anger is a kind of murder you commit in your heart." If this is true, I'm a daily murderer. My heart is more full of blood than I ever imagined. #Quote by Stephanie Oakes
Murder quotes by Takayuki Yamaguchi
#75. He had been dazzled. Because of the dazzling brightness, he had had to kill [Seigen]. All who had encountered Seigen had had their hearts stolen by that brightness. That envy had turned to malice. #Quote by Takayuki Yamaguchi
Murder quotes by Julian Barnes
#76. Like what? The things Literature was all about: love, sex, morality, friendship, happiness, suffering, betrayal, adultery, good and evil, heroes and villains, guilt and innocence, ambition, power, justice, revolution, war, fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, the individual against society, success and failure, murder, suicide, death, God. And barn owls. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Murder quotes by Mark Lawrence
#77. Assassination is murder with a touch more precision. Brother Sim is precise. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Murder quotes by Henry Miller
#78. Christ will never more come down to earth nor will there be any law-giver, nor will murder cease nor theft, nor rape, and yet ... and yet one expects something, something terrifyingly marvellous and absurd, perhaps a cold lobster with mayonnaise served gratis, perhaps an invention, like the electric light, like television, only more devastating, more soul rending, an invention unthinkable that will bring a shattering calm and void, not the calm and void of death but of life such as the monks dreamed, such as is dreamed still in the Himalayas, in Tibet, in Lahore, in the Aleutian Islands, in Polynesia, in Easter Island, the dream of men before the flood, before the word was written, the dream of cave men and anthropophagists, of those with double sex and short tails, of those who are said to be crazy and have no way of defending themselves because they are outnumbered by those who are not crazy. #Quote by Henry Miller
Murder quotes by Emile Zola
#79. She would have cursed the Almighty had she been able to shout out a blasphemy. Providence had deceived her for over sixty years, by treating her as a gentle, good little girl, by amusing her with lying representations of tranquil joy. And she had remained a child, senselessly believing in a thousand silly things, and unable to see life as it really is, dragging along in the sanguinary filth of passions. Providence was bad; it should have told her the truth before, or have allowed her to continue in her innocence and blindness. Now, it only remained for her to die, denying love, denying friendship, denying devotedness. Nothing existed but murder and lust. #Quote by Emile Zola
Murder quotes by Catherine Doyle
#80. I guess any halfwit could nail a game of 'Spot the Falcone'. Just look for the shampoo-commercial hair or those I-might-murder-you eyes. #Quote by Catherine Doyle
Murder quotes by David Levithan
#81. The terrorists-those nineteen people, with hundreds or maybe thousands behind them-did the worst thing you can possibly imagine. But tens of millions people did the right thing ... On 9/11, all the hatred and murder could not compare with the weight of love, of bravery, of caring. #Quote by David Levithan
Murder quotes by Agatha Christie
#82. There are crimes that cannot be brought home to their perpetrators. Instance the Rogerses'. Another instance, old Wargrave, who committed his murder strictly within the law. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Murder quotes by Tracy Weber
#83. For the record, telling your boyfriend that your not-as-dead-as-you-might-have-implied mother has been arrested for murder doesn't go over well #Quote by Tracy Weber
Murder quotes by P.D. James
#84. (A murderer about their victim
He was an expert in vicarious death. I should like to have been there to see how he enjoyed the real thing. #Quote by P.D. James
Murder quotes by William James
#85. If I refuse to stop a murder because I am in doubt whether it be not justifiable homicide, I am virtually abetting the crime. If I refuse to bale out a boat because I am in doubt whether my efforts will keep her afloat, I am really helping to sink her. If in the mountain precipice I doubt my right to risk a leap, I actively connive at my destruction. He who commands himself not to be credulous of God, of duty, of freedom, of immortality, may again and again be indistinguishable from him who dogmatically denies them. Scepticism in moral matters is an active ally of immorality. Who is not for is against. The universe will have no neutrals in these questions. In theory as in practice, dodge or hedge, or talk as we like about a wise scepticism, we are really doing volunteer military service for one side or the other. #Quote by William James
Murder quotes by Abigail Gibbs
#86. Handsome and brilliantly rich; their fatal flaw is murder. #Quote by Abigail Gibbs
Murder quotes by Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give
#87. I didn't know a dead person could be charged in his own murder, you know? #Quote by Angie Thomas, The Hate U Give
Murder quotes by Agatha Christie
#88. I like a good detective story," he said. "But, you know, they begin in the wrong place! They begin with the murder. But the murder is the end. The story begins long before that - years before sometimes with all the causes and events that bring certain people to a certain place at a certain time on a certain day. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Murder quotes by Nora Roberts
#89. Mmm-hmm." Idly, she studied her manicure. "It's leaked that the police are questioning him in
connection with the tampering, the fraudulent account, even my father's murder. I can't imagine how
the press got the information."
"You're a devious package, Sophie."
"Spoken as my friend or my lawyer?"
"Both. Just be careful. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Murder quotes by Jo Nesbo
#90. New; it had been lying there with all the other half-thought, half-chewed, half-dreamed ideas. The third chicken had been killed in the same way as Sylvia, with an electric cutting loop. He went to the place where the floorboards had absorbed the blood and crouched down. If the Snowman had killed the last chicken, why had he used the loop and not the hatchet? Simple. Because the hatchet had disappeared in the depths of the forest somewhere. So this must have happened after the murder. He had come all the way back here and slaughtered a chicken. But why? A kind of voodoo ritual? A sudden inspiration? Bullshit - this killing machine stuck to the #Quote by Jo Nesbo
Murder quotes by Jeff Foxworthy
#91. Do you know why it's so hard to solve a Redneck murder? 'Cause there's no dental records and all the DNA is the same. #Quote by Jeff Foxworthy
Murder quotes by Gena Showalter
#92. What do you think we'll find?" Strider asked, his features pensive as he peered at Lucien. "And why the hell do you now look capable of murder? These last few weeks the only expression you've given us was bored. I mention the temples and hello, demon. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Murder quotes by Eoin Colfer
#93. The ripple effects of young Opal's murder in the corner of a field were more widespread than even Artemis could have imagined, though in truth imagine is the wrong verb, as Artemis Fowl was not in the habit of imagining anything. Even as a small boy, he had never nurtured daydreams of himself on horseback fighting dragons. What Artemis preferred to do was visualize an achievable objective and then work toward that goal. #Quote by Eoin Colfer
Murder quotes by Larry Kelley
#94. Unlike some of the Arabs of antiquity who learned to make a living as farmers or merchants, the mark of manhood for the Arab nomads who followed Muhammad was the possession of arms, obsession with honor, and claim to pastures, camels, and women. Robbery and murder outside the protective confines of one's clan were simply the means to an end." 125 It was upon the ethos of the ruthless raid that Muhammad founded Islam. #Quote by Larry Kelley
Murder quotes by Susan Bernhardt
#95. Another holiday, another murder. At least no one got murdered at Thanksgiving dinner! How did I end up, in the season of peace and goodwill toward men, investigating another homicide?"
~ Kay Driscoll

Murder quotes by Alice McDermott
#96. I don't want to write about violence, and I don't want to hang a plot on a murder. I think it's cheap. #Quote by Alice McDermott
Murder quotes by Aldous Huxley
#97. He does his work very well,' put in Henry, with hypocritical generosity.
'I know. But that's all the more reason for severity. His intellectual eminence carries with it corresponding moral responsibilities. The greater a man's talents, the greater his power to lead astray. It is better than one should suffer than that many should be corrupted. Consider the matter dispassionately, Mr Foster, and you will see that no offence is so heinous as unorthodoxy of behavior. Murder kills only the individual - and, after all, what is an individual?' With a sweeping gesture he indicated the rows of microscopes, the test-tubes, the incubators. 'We can make a new one with the greatest ease - as many as we like. Unorthodoxy threatens more than the life of a mere individual; it strikes at Society itself. Yes, at Society itself,' he repeated. 'Ah, but here he comes. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Murder quotes by Eric
#98. If I went back in time and killed myself, would it be murder or suicide???? #Quote by Eric
Murder quotes by William Lacy Clay, Jr.
#99. It's an issue that we need to have a national discussion about, the militarization of local police forces, and then when they are used to quell peaceful demonstration. Then we have a problem, and especially around this entire case of the murder of Michael Brown at the hands of a Ferguson police officer. #Quote by William Lacy Clay, Jr.
Murder quotes by Noel Ignatiev
#100. If you are a white male, you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He's good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others! #Quote by Noel Ignatiev
Murder quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#101. This is a strange Christmas Eve,"Churchill told the the crowd of several hundred gathered at the mansion's garden."Almost the whole world is locked in deadly struggle, and with the most terrible weapons which science can devise the nations advance upon each other. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Murder quotes by Jenny Han
#102. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. a burn for a burn. a life for a life. that's how all this got started. and that's how it's going to end. #Quote by Jenny Han
Murder quotes by Garrett Fort

Murder quotes by Howard Zinn
#104. In two years, through murder, mutilation, or suicide, half of the 250,000 Indians on Haiti were dead. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Murder quotes by Phil Robertson
#105. For the sake of the Gospel, it was worth it ... All you have to do is look at any society where there is no Jesus. I'll give you four: Nazis, no Jesus. Look at their record. Uh, Shintos? They started this thing in Pearl Harbor. Any Jesus among them? None. Communists? None. Islamists? Zero. That's eighty years of ideologies that have popped up where no Jesus was allowed among those four groups. Just look at the records as far as murder goes among those four groups. #Quote by Phil Robertson
Murder quotes by Suzy Kassem
#106. Killing in the name of religion defines someone who is ignorant and actually void of religion. God does not condone terror. To kill innocent people to make a political statement is like shooting a dove to say hunting is wrong. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Murder quotes by Barry White
#107. The cops picked me up for attempted murder. I can still see the detectives, licking their chops. Thought they had me. Two weeks later, the cat came out of a coma and told the truth. I was innocent. #Quote by Barry White
Murder quotes by Elizabeth Hardwick
#108. A murder is a challenge, an embarrassment, to the inner life of the dead one, almost a dishonor, like other violent events that may come upon you without warning. It is not certain that you may not have in some careless or driven way chosen to put yourself in the path of a murderer. #Quote by Elizabeth Hardwick
Murder quotes by Eric Ludy
#109. Selfishness, like Jimmy the Shrimp, works underground. Most people don't even realize it is there, which is precisely why it is so dangerous. Selfishness works in secret, behind closed doors, on the black market, plotting and planning our destruction. Selfishness is the Mob boss of the soul. In fact, without selfishness, you wouldn't have murder, hate, holocaust, slander, genocide, betrayal, or crooked lawyers - because those are all the convoluted results of Jimmy the Shrimp's regime. Simply put, selfishness is the sickness behind all other sicknesses. #Quote by Eric Ludy
Murder quotes by David Foster Wallace
#110. Dieting makes me want to murder everyone around me. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Murder quotes by Richelle Mead
#111. Ah my daughter. Eighteen and already you've been accused of murder, aided felons and acquired a death count higher than most guardians will ever see. I couldn't be prouder.

Murder quotes by Antonin Scalia
#112. If we cannot have moral feelings against homosexuality, can we have it against murder? Can we have it against other things? #Quote by Antonin Scalia
Murder quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine
#113. The religion of the flag promptly replaced the cult of heaven, an old cloud which had already been deflated by the Reformation and reduced to a network of episcopal money boxes. In olden times the fanatical fashion was: 'Long live Jesus! Burn the heretics!' . . . But heretics, after all, were few and voluntary . . . Whereas today vast hordes of men are fired with aim and purpose by cries of 'Hang the limp turnips! The juiceless lemons! The innocent readers! By the millions, eyes right!' If anybody doesn't want to fight or murder, grab 'em, tear 'em to pieces! Kill them in thirteen juicy ways. For a starter, to teach them how to live, rip their guts out of their bodies, their eyes out of their sockets, and the years out of their filthy slobbering lives! #Quote by Louis Ferdinand Celine
Murder quotes by Rudolf Hoss
#114. One woman approached me as she walked past and, pointing to her four children who were manfully helping the smallest ones over the rough ground, whispered: 'How can you bring yourself to kill such beautiful, darling children? Have you no heart at all?' One old man, as he passed me, hissed: 'Germany will pay a heavy penance for this mass murder of the Jews.' His eyes glowed with hatred as he said this. Nevertheless he walked calmly into the gas-chamber. #Quote by Rudolf Hoss
Murder quotes by Carl Sagan
#115. If chimpanzees have consciousness, if they are capable of abstractions, do they not have what until now has been described as 'human rights'? How smart does a chimp have to be before killing him constitutes murder? #Quote by Carl Sagan
Murder quotes by Thomas Paine
#116. What is it the Bible teaches us?
rapine, cruelty, and murder. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Murder quotes by Tzvetan Todorov
#117. Torture is not to be condemned merely because it does not produce the effects expected; it is to be condemned, first and foremost, because it is an unacceptable attack on the very idea of humanity. It is the surest index of barbarism – that extreme pole in human behaviour that leads us to ride roughshod over the humanity of the other. Yet again, torture is in this respect worse than murder, since by torturing I do not remain content with eliminating the person to whom I object, I draw satisfaction from his suffering, from excluding him from humanity, and this intense pleasure lasts for as long as he is alive. Torture leaves an indelible mark on the person tortured but also on the torturer. Institutional torture is even worse than individual torture, since it subverts every idea of justice and right. If the state itself becomes a torturer, how can we believe in the order that it claims to bring or to endorse? #Quote by Tzvetan Todorov
Murder quotes by Amanda Scott
#118. Prithee, sir," Ian said, controlling his impatience, "tell us what Dougal said."
"He said he'd tell the world that he's had his way with our Lina, even shared her with his men. Och, but I wanted to hang him from the tree outside me gate right then! In short, if Dougal canna have her, he'll murder her reputation. So, in my fury, I've condemned my daughter to the sad future of an unmarried, unwanted woman. A future in which others will revile her, if Dougal has his say. Och, I'm a villain m'self to do such a vile thing. Mayhap I should think more on it, unless . . ."
He looked at Rob, who stared silently, blankly back at him.
After a glance at Ian, Andrew chose a point midway between the two men and said with a slight, self-deprecating shrug, "I dinna suppose ye'd . . . either o' ye . . . be willing to marry the poor lassie and save her from such a dreadful fate."
Ian saw the pit yawning before him, but he barely heeded it. Having saved Lina from one wretched fate, he did not want to watch her fall victim to another.
Impulsively, he said, "I . . . I'd be willing to give the idea some thought, sir."
"Good lad," Andrew said cheerfully. "I'll let ye have her. #Quote by Amanda Scott
Murder quotes by Albert Camus
#119. A ridiculous fear pursued me, in fact: one could not die without having confessed all one's lies. Not to God or to one of his representatives; I was above that, as you well imagine. No, it was a matter of confessing to men, to a friend, to a beloved woman, for example. Otherwise, were there but one lie hidden in life, death made it definitive. No one, ever again, would know the truth at this point, since the only one to know it was precisely the dead man sleeping on his secret. The absolute murder of truth used to make me dizzy. #Quote by Albert Camus
Murder quotes by Michael Reeves
#120. The things he had understood to be sin (murder, adultery, etc.) he now understood to be mere symptoms of the real problem: unbelief. #Quote by Michael Reeves
Murder quotes by Jason Jack Miller
#121. Henry,that's how you get rid of fleas. You keep them from laying eggs. You go to war with them. #Quote by Jason Jack Miller
Murder quotes by Dianne Harman Cornered Coyote
#122. Maria, it sounds like he was insane. Rational people don't intentionally addict people. I feel sorry for those poor people who were unsuspecting victims. #Quote by Dianne Harman Cornered Coyote
Murder quotes by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
#123. The actual tragedy of Emmett Till, he had told her once, was not the murder of a black child for whistling at a white woman but that some black people thought: But why did you whistle? #Quote by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Murder quotes by John Shelby Spong
#124. You need to identify the values that come out of that kind of belief system, because I don't see them. All the polls I look at say, for example, that adultery is committed as much in the Bible Belt as in any other part of the country. The same goes for abortion, child abuse, spouse abuse or murder. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Murder quotes by Dauglas Dauglas
#125. The Dutch Reformed Church was the state church of the apartheid regime and a fervent supporter of apartheid; it inspired and condoned rape, abduction and murder. #Quote by Dauglas Dauglas
Murder quotes by Charles Bukowski
#126. Well, people got attatched. Once you cut the umbilical cord they attatched to the other things. Sight, sound, sex, money, mirages, mothers, masturbation, murder, and Monday morning hangovers. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Murder quotes by Shoshana Felman
#127. I would suggest that what the translator has to give up is the temptation to translate history by making sense of it, that is, by using an apologetic or apocalyptic discourse. What the translator fails to do is to erase the body, to erase the murder of the original. #Quote by Shoshana Felman
Murder quotes by Jia Tolentino
#128. No crime is confounding and punitive the way rape is. No other violent offense comes with a built-in alibi that can instantly exonerate the criminal and place responsibility on the victim. There is no glorified interpersonal behavior that can be used to explain robbery or murder the way that sex can be used to explain rape. The best-case scenario for a rape victim in terms of adjudication is the worst-case scenario in terms of experience: for people to believe you deserve justice, you have to be destroyed. The fact that feminism is ascendant and accepted does not change this. The world that we believe in, that we're attempting to make real and tangible, is still not the world that exists. #Quote by Jia Tolentino
Murder quotes by J.D. Robb
#129. Murder did that. Took lives, crushed others, changed still others forever. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Murder quotes by Stephen Craig
#130. In fact, until the last moments of his life, until the last seconds as he gasped for breath, he never realised how much he wanted to live. But, at that point, death was inevitable and nothing that had happened could be changed. #Quote by Stephen Craig
Murder quotes by Stephen Tremp
#131. Writing murder scenes is easy for me. Too easy. Sometimes I have to ask myself, "Do you think there's anything wrong with me? #Quote by Stephen Tremp
Murder quotes by Albert Camus
#132. Habit starts at the second crime. At the first one, something is ending. #Quote by Albert Camus
Murder quotes by Jane Austen
#133. You express so little anxiety about my being murdered under Ashe Park Copse by Mrs. Hulbert's servant, that I have a great mind not to tell you whether I was or not. #Quote by Jane Austen
Murder quotes by David Simon

Murder quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#137. How many times must I tell you not to kill anyone tonight? It's like a sickness with you, isn't it? Have you ever gone a whole day without committing murder?"
"Has anyone who's spent their whole day with you?" I muttered. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Murder quotes by Baron D'Holbach
#138. The Jehovah of the Jews is a suspicious tyrant, who breathes nothing but blood, murder, and carnage, and who demands that they should nourish him with the vapours of animals. The Jupiter of the Pagans is a lascivious monster. The Moloch of the Phoenicians is a cannibal. The pure mind of the Christians resolved, in order to appease his fury, to crucify his own son. The savage god of the Mexicans cannot be satisfied without thousands of mortals which are immolated to his sanguinary appetite. #Quote by Baron D'Holbach
Murder quotes by Agatha Christie

#141. Apparently, dancing for him and throwing herself at him weren't enough. Apparently, she had to nearly commit murder to arouse him enough to attack her. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Murder quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#142. The Chicago City News Bureau was a tripwire for all the newspapers in town when I was there, and there were five papers, I think. We were out all the time around the clock and every time we came across a really juicy murder or scandal or whatever, they'd send the big time reporters and photographers, otherwise they'd run our stories. So that's what I was doing, and I was going to university at the same time. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Murder quotes by Alexandre Dumas

Murder quotes by Nora Roberts
#144. Fine, you do that, and you tell them that at the very first opportunity, I'm coming down there and killing all of them. Mass murder. And after they're all dead, I'm going to kick the bodies around, dance on top of them, and sing a happy song. No jury will convict me. #Quote by Nora Roberts
Murder quotes by Penn Jillette
#145. If the bible were published as fiction, no reviewer would give it a passing grade. There are some vivid scenes and quotable phrases but there's no plot, no structure, a tremendous amount of filler and the characters are painfully one dimensional. Whatever you do, don't read the bible for a moral code. It advocates prejudice, cruelty, superstition and murder. Read it because we need more atheists. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Murder quotes by Kira Jane Buxton
#146. So there we were. A rejected crow with an identity crisis partnering a bloodhound with the IQ of boiled pudding. We were perhaps the most pathetic excuse for an attempted murder on the face of the earth. #Quote by Kira Jane Buxton
Murder quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#147. If the word is not dead when it reaches the hearer, he murders it at once by a contradiction, a stipulation, a condition, a digression, an interruption, and all the thousand tricks of conversation. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Murder quotes by Mark Twain
#148. THERE were two "Reigns of Terror," if we would but remember it and consider it; the one wrought murder in hot passion, the other in heartless cold blood; the one lasted mere months, the other had lasted a thousand years; the one inflicted death upon ten thousand persons, the other upon a hundred millions; but our shudders are all for the "horrors" of the minor Terror, the momentary Terror, so to speak; whereas, what is the horror of swift death by the axe, compared with lifelong death from hunger, cold, insult, cruelty, and heart-break? What is swift death by lightning compared with death by slow fire at the stake? A city cemetery could contain the coffins filled by that brief Terror which we have all been so diligently taught to shiver at and mourn over; but all France could hardly contain the coffins filled by that older and real Terror - that unspeakably bitter and awful Terror which none of us has been taught to see in its vastness or pity as it deserves. #Quote by Mark Twain
Murder quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#149. The banks of the Thirty-Foot held, but the swollen Wale, receiving the full force of the Upper Waters and the spring tide, gave at every point. Before the cars reached St. Paul, the flood was rising and pursuing them. Wimsey's car
the last to start
was submerged to the axles. They fled through the dusk, and behind and on their left, the great silver sheet of water spread and spread. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Murder quotes by John D. Rockefeller
#150. A friendship built on business can be glorious, while a business built on friendship can be murder. #Quote by John D. Rockefeller
Murder quotes by Cassandra Clare

Murder quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#153. Water everywhere, falling in thundering cataracts, singular drops, and draping sheets. Kellhus paused next to one of the shining braziers, peered beneath the bronze visage that loomed orange and scowling over his father, watched him lean back into absolute shadow.
"You came to the world," unseen lips said, "and you saw that Men were like children."
Lines of radiance danced across the intervening waters.
"It is their nature to believe as their fathers believed," the darkness continued. "To desire as they desired … Men are like wax poured into moulds: their souls are cast by their circumstances. Why are no Fanim children born to Inrithi parents? Why are no Inrithi children born to Fanim parents? Because these truths are made, cast by the particularities of circumstance. Rear an infant among Fanim and he will become Fanim. Rear him among Inrithi and he will become Inrithi …
"Split him in two, and he would murder himself."
Without warning, the face re-emerged, water-garbled, white save the black sockets beneath his brow. The action seemed random, as though his father merely changed posture to relieve some vagrant ache, but it was not. Everything, Kellhus knew, had been premeditated. For all the changes wrought by thirty years in the Wilderness, his father remained Dûnyain …
Which meant that Kellhus stood on conditioned ground.
"But as obvious as this is," the blurred face continued, "it escapes them. Because they cannot see what comes before the #Quote by R. Scott Bakker
Murder quotes by Alane Ferguson
#154. What would you have if you didn't have a murder in a mystery? You'd have something for the lower-level readers. When you get up into the upper levels, there's nothing that will engage you or compel you or get your emotions churning like a murder. It's the ultimate stakes. #Quote by Alane Ferguson
Murder quotes by Henry Rollins
#155. Just understand that the end began long ago We got here just in time Look All the squares in the sidewalks were already there All these strangers have more money than you do All the good riffs have been taken And everyone is so scared Murder is commonplace I don't even flinch at the gunshots outside my window I feel lonely without them #Quote by Henry Rollins

Murder quotes by Virginia Woolf

Murder quotes by Holly Black
#165. Gavriel was half in love with death. He'd lost a lover to it and put his own brother in a grave, so maybe it was no surprise that he stalked murderers through the city streets, sinking his fangs into their jugulars and gulping down their blood. Every night, it was as though he avenged his brother by killing some stand-in for himself. #Quote by Holly Black
Murder quotes by Liu Cixin
#166. Even a fish can be used to commit a crime. I handled a murder case once. Some bitch cut off her husband's family jewels. You know what she used? A frozen tilapia she got out of the freezer! The spines along the back were like razors - #Quote by Liu Cixin
Murder quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#167. No humane being, past the thoughtless age of boyhood, will wantonly murder any creature, which holds its life by the same tenure that he does. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Murder quotes by Donna Tartt
#168. It's a terrible thing, what we did," said Francis abruptly. "I mean, this man was not Voltaire we killed. But still. It's a shame. I feel bad about it."
"Well, of course, I do too," said Henry matter-of-factly. "But not bad enough to want to go to jail for it."
Francis snorted and poured himself another shot of whiskey and drank it straight off. "No," he said. "Not that bad. #Quote by Donna Tartt

Murder quotes by Derek Landy
#170. The man had a smooth voice, like velvet. "I'm Detective Inspector Me. Unusual name, I know. My family were incredibly
narcissistic. I'm lucky I escaped with any degree of humility at all, to be honest, but then I've always managed to exceed expectations. You are Kenny Dunne, are you not?"
"I am."
"Just a few questions for you, Mr Dunne. Or Kenny. Can I call you Kenny? I feel we've become friends these past few seconds. Can I call you Kenny?"
"Sure," Kenny said, slightly baffled.
"Thank you. Thank you very much. It's important you feel comfortable around me, Kenny. It's important we build up a level of trust. That way I'll catch you completely unprepared when I
suddenly accuse you of murder. #Quote by Derek Landy
Murder quotes by Israelmore Ayivor

Murder quotes by Osama Bin Laden
#172. Any thief or criminal or robber who enters another country in order to steal should expect to be exposed to murder at any time. For the American forces to expect anything from me personally reflects a very narrow perception. #Quote by Osama Bin Laden
Murder quotes by Howard Bloom
#173. From our best qualities come our worst. From our urge to pull together comes our tendency to tear each other apart. From our devotion to a higher good comes our propensity to the foulest atrocities. From our commitment to ideals comes our excuse to hate. Since the beginning of history, we have been blinded by evil's ability to don a selfless disguise. We have failed to see that our finest qualities often lead us to the actions we most abhor, murder, torture, genocide and war. #Quote by Howard Bloom
Murder quotes by Christina Henry
#174. She knew what he offered. He would kill her first, with the gun or the knife or his fists if he had to, and make certain she was never trapped in that cage again. From another man this might be terrifying, that he would so blithely consider murdering his companion. But she understood that from Hatcher this was tantamount to an offer of marriage. This was what he could do for her, how he showed he cared. #Quote by Christina Henry
Murder quotes by David J. C. MacKay

Murder quotes by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock
#176. Utopians are heedless of methods. To render the human species happy, they are prepared to subject it to murder, torture, lethal injection, incineration, deportation, sterilization, quartering, lobotomy, electrocution, military invasion, bombing, etc. #Quote by Juan Rodolfo Wilcock
Murder quotes by Dee Brown
#177. Not all of Anthony's officers, however, were eager or even willing to join Chivington's well-planned massacre. Captain Silas Soule, Lieutenant Joseph Cramer, and Lieutenant James Connor protested that an attack on Black Kettle's peaceful camp would violate the pledge of safety given the Indians by both Wynkoop and Anthony, "that it would be murder in every sense of the word," and any officer participating would dishonor the uniform of the Army. #Quote by Dee Brown
Murder quotes by Charles Nodier
#178. It is wrong to kill anyone. It is wrong to kill those who kill. It is wrong to kill the executioner. The laws on murder must be killed! #Quote by Charles Nodier

#181. Don't tell me to believe. Don't tell me to believe in the same God or laws that men believe in who commit these murders. Don't tell me to believe that God can bless this country and that men are judged by their peers. Who among his peers judged him? Was I there? Was the minister there? Was Harry Williams there? Was Farrell Jarreau? Was my aunt? Was Vivian? No, his peers did not judge him, and I will not believe. #Quote by Ernest Gaines
Murder quotes by C.C. Hunter
#182. Holiday leaned her elbows on her desk. "You can't find one thing that points to his guilt."
"He slept with your sister!" Burnett roared.
"Guilty of murder, not of being a piece of shit. #Quote by C.C. Hunter
Murder quotes by Kofi Annan
#183. Whether our task is fighting poverty, stemming the spread of disease or saving innocent lives from mass murder, we have seen that we cannot succeed without the leadership of the strong and the engagement of all. #Quote by Kofi Annan
Murder quotes by Thomas Sowell
#184. Do countries with strong gun control laws have lower murder rates? Only if you cherry-pick the data. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Murder quotes by Rick Remender
#185. Enough rationalization. They simply had what you wanted, so you took it.

[My chair-- I shit on my good chair!]

You shit more than just your chair.

You shit the world. All you ever cared about was winning -- And you did.

The last man standing on a mountain of filth [. . .]

Kazumi taught forgiveness. She accepted all refugees looking for a better life. And you turned that against her.

Kazumi would show mercy.

I'm not Kazumi. #Quote by Rick Remender
Murder quotes by Catharine Beecher
#186. Half of the receipts in our cookbooks are mere murder to such constitutions and stomachs as we grow here ... in America, owing to our brighter skies and more fervid climate, we have developed an acute, nervous delicacy of temperament far more akin to that of France than of England. #Quote by Catharine Beecher
Murder quotes by Carl Panzram
#187. I wish you all had one neck and that I had my hands on it. #Quote by Carl Panzram
Murder quotes by George Orwell
#188. They plunged into an enormous and eager conversation, first about books, then about shooting, in which the girl seemed to have an interest and about which she persuaded Flory to talk. She was quite thrilled when he described the murder of an elephant which he had perpetrated some years earlier. #Quote by George Orwell
Murder quotes by Adolf Loos
#189. Tattooed men who are not behind bars are either latent criminals or degenerate aristocrats. If someone who is tattooed dies in freedom, then he does so a few years before he would have committed murder. #Quote by Adolf Loos
Murder quotes by Val McDermid
#190. You always remember the first time. Isn't that what they say about sex? How much more true it is of murder. #Quote by Val McDermid
Murder quotes by Set It Off
#191. Maybe you'll change
Abandon all your wicked ways
Make amends and start anew again
Maybe you'll see
All the wrongs you did to me
And start all over, start all over again.

Who am i kidding?
Now, lets not get overzealous here
Youre always been a huge piece of shit
If i could kill you i would
But it's frowned upon in all fifty states
Having said that, burn in Hell. #Quote by Set It Off
Murder quotes by P.D. James
#192. What the detective story is about is not murder but the restoration of order. #Quote by P.D. James
Murder quotes by Eliza Crewe
#193. Your death, strange human. I mean, your injury. No murder, just a little maiming. So I can leave. Maiming's not so bad. #Quote by Eliza Crewe
Murder quotes by Edward Aubry
#194. a man travels back in time and murders his grandfather, thus preventing his own birth, the universe simply carries on with the grandfather dead, the time traveler forever unborn, and it does so without a care in the world as to how that murder was possible in the first place. No one will ever be aware that history has changed, and no one will ever be aware that he was supposed to have offspring, and grand-offspring. No one, that is, except the time traveler. That person, who should now never have existed, continues to exist anyway. And again, the universe just shrugs it off, insisting - and rightly so - that it owes no one any explanation for its conduct. #Quote by Edward Aubry
Murder quotes by Dan Rather
#195. By more than two to one Americans do not consider what Kevorkian did, injecting a terminally ill patient with legal drugs at the patient's request, to be the same as murder. You may want to note that laws are not supposed to be enforced on the basis of public opinion polls. #Quote by Dan Rather
Murder quotes by Ilona Andrews
#196. I could do this. I just had to be careful and not punch her. Piece of cake.
"Hi," Heather said, stretching the word. She walked carefully, as if worried I'd bite her.
"Hi!" Kate Daniels, a good neighbor. Would you like some cookies?
"I'm sorry to bother you . . . What is that smell?"
Spider guts. "How can I help you?"
"Umm, the neighbors asked me to bring some issues to your attention."
I bet they did, and she bravely soldiered under that burden. "Shoot."
"It's about the mailbox."
I could see the communal mailbox out of the corner of my eye. It seemed intact.
"You see, the mailman saw your husband during one of his walks."
"He's my fiancé," I told her. "We are living in sin."
Heather blinked, momentarily knocked off her stride, but recovered. "Oh, that's nice."
"It's very nice. I highly recommend it."
"As I was saying, he saw your fiancé when he was in his animal shape. How to put it . . . He became alarmed."
That was generally a normal reaction when encountering Curran for the first time.
"We are not sure if they will deliver mail again."
"Did you receive any official notices from the post office?"
"No, but . . ." Heather tried a smile. "We were thinking maybe your fiancé could not do that anymore."
"Do what?" I had a sudden urge to strangle Heather. I was so tired of people acting like Curran was an inhuman spree killer who would murder babies in their sleep.

Murder quotes by Mark Z. Danielewski
#197. Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought, but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share. #Quote by Mark Z. Danielewski
Murder quotes by Edwin G. Burrows
#198. 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
Murder quotes by Margaret Atwood
#199. Hope throws a smokescreen. Smoke gets in your eyes and so no one is prepared for it, but suddenly it;s there, like an out-of-control bonfire - like murder, only multiplied. It's in full spate. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Murder quotes by Hera Leick
#200. With every book I write, I give the Hera Leick Promise. I will never weave into my stories: cheating; sex outside the main characters; sexual abuse; cliffhangars; years of separation; man whores; and lastly my worst pet peeve, insta-love. If one sneaks in, I give you permission to shoot me. Please make note, however, guns are not legal in England. Neither is murder. I hope. #Quote by Hera Leick
