#7. I am no king, and I am no lord,
And I am no soldier at-arms," said he.
"I'm none but a harper, and a very poor harper,
That am come hither to wed with ye."
"If you were a lord, you should be my lord,
And the same if you were a thief," said she.
"And if you are a harper, you shall be my harper,
For it makes no matter to me, to me,
For it makes no matter to me."
"But what if it prove that I am no harper?
That I lied for your love most monstrously?"
"Why, then I'll teach you to play and sing,
For I dearly love a good harp," said she. #Quote by Peter S. Beagle
The Thief S Journal quotes by William S. Burroughs
#8. Out of the closets and into the museums, libraries, architectural monuments, concert halls, bookstores, recording studios and film studios of the world. Everything belongs to the inspired and dedicated thief…. Words, colors, light, sounds, stone, wood, bronze belong to the living artist. They belong to anyone who can use them. Loot the Louvre! A bas l'originalité, the sterile and assertive ego that imprisons us as it creates. Vive le vol-pure, shameless, total. We are not responsible. Steal anything in sight. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
The Thief S Journal quotes by Liz Braswell
#9. There are a lot of things that aren't fair, Aladdin."
She drew back from him, still holding his hands, and looked into his eyes.
"That's just the way life is- which is why it's so important for us Street Rats to take care of each other. That's a good instinct you have. You should always look out for your friends and your family. Because no one is looking out for us.
But that doesn't mean you should become a thief."
Aladdin looked at the ground, chagrined.
She put her hand under his chin to make him look up at her.
"Don't let life's unfairness, don't let how poor you are decide who you are. You choose who you will be, Aladdin. Will you be a hero who looks after the weak and powerless? Will you be a thief? Will you be a beggar- or worse? It's up to you, not the things-or people- around you. You can choose to be something more. #Quote by Liz Braswell
The Thief S Journal quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#10. Do not procrastinate. Someone has said that procrastination is the thief of time. Actually, procrastination is much more. It is the thief of our self-respect. It nags at us and spoils our fun. It deprives us of the fullest realization of our ambitions and hopes. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
The Thief S Journal quotes by Tessa Dare
#11. After all," she said, her eyes meeting his, "it's not as though you lack sufficient charm to woo ladies. And you're certainly handsome enough, in your own way."
She bent her head again. "Oh, stop looking s smug. I'm not flattering you, I'm merely stating facts. Privateering was not your only profitable course of action. You might have married, if you'd wished to."
"Ah, but there's the snag, you see. I didn't wish to."
She picked up a brush and tapped it against her palette. "No, you didn't. You wished to be at sea. You wished to go adventuring, to seize sixty ships in the name of the Crown and pursue countless women on four continents. That's why you sold your land, Mr. Grayson. Because it's what you wanted to do. The profit was incidental."
Gray tugged at the cuff of his coat sleeve. It unnerved him, how easily she stared down these truths he'd avoided looking in the eye for years. So now he was worse than a thief. He was a selfish, lying thief. And still she sat with him, flirted with him, called him "charming" and "handsome enough." How much darkness did the girl need to uncover before she finally turned away?
"And what about you, Miss Turner?" He leaned forward in his chair. "Why are you here, bound for the West Indies to work as a governess? You, too, might have married. You come from quality; so much is clear. And even if you'd no dowry, sweetheart…" He waited for her to look up. "Yours is the kind of beauty that brings men to their knees."
#Quote by Tessa Dare
The Thief S Journal quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#12. Looking impressed. She turned and beckoned to a young man of seventeen or eighteen, who had been lurking in the background. He bore such a marked resemblance to his small, wiry, dark-haired father that his identity could scarcely be in doubt. "Manfred," his mother announced proudly. "Mein laddie." Jamie inclined his head in grave acknowledgment. "Mr. McGillivray." "Ah ... your s-servant, sir?" The boy sounded rather dubious about it, but put out his hand to be shaken. "A pleasure to make your acquaintance, sir," Jamie assured him, shaking it. The courtesies duly observed, he looked briefly round at the quiet surroundings, raising one eyebrow. "I had heard that you were suffering some inconvenience wi' regard to a thief-taker. Do I #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
The Thief S Journal quotes by Jerry Pournelle
#13. One of your most ancient writers, a historian named Herodotus, tells of a thief who was to be executed. As he was taken away he made a bargain with the king: in one year he would teach the king's favorite horse to sing hymns. The other prisoners watched the thief singing to the horse and laughed. "You will not succeed," they told him. "No one can." To which the thief replied, "I have a year, and who knows what might happen in that time. The king might die. The horse might die. I might die. And perhaps the horse will learn to sing. #Quote by Jerry Pournelle
The Thief S Journal quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#14. Remember our friend Mark?" Wylan winced. Let's say the mark is a tourist walking through the Barrel. He's heard it's a good place to get rolled, so he keeps patting his wallet, making sure it's there, congratulating himself on just how alert and cautious he;s being. No fool he. Of course every thime he pats his back pocket or the front of his coat, what is he doing? He's telliing every thief on the Stave exactly where he keeps his scrub."
"Saints," grumbled Nina. "I've probably done that."
"Everyone does," said Inej.
Jesper lifted a brow. "Not everyone."
"That's only because you never have anything in your wallet," Nina shot back.
"Facts are for the unimaginative," Jesper said with a dismissive wave. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
The Thief S Journal quotes by Tarryn Fisher

The Thief S Journal quotes by Cinda Williams Chima
#16. What if it was true - what Elend had told his mother? What if he was cursed because the blood of the Demon King ran in his veins? His family fortunes had certainly fallen over the past thousand years - from King of the Seven Realms to starveling street thief. #Quote by Cinda Williams Chima
The Thief S Journal quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#17. Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you're misunderstood. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
The Thief S Journal quotes by Jewel Amethyst

The Thief S Journal quotes by C.S. Lewis
#19. I once read the sentence 'I lay awake all night with a toothache, thinking about the toothache an about lying awake.' That's true to life. Part of every misery is, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about living each day in grief. #Quote by C.S. Lewis

#22. Life everywhere is in vast and endless variety. So it is with life eternal, that gift of God, constituting, in its length and breadth and height and depth, the reward of the righteous. The penitent, dying thief is not going into heaven like the triumphant, dying Paul. #Quote by Herrick Johnson
The Thief S Journal quotes by Toba Beta
#23. The truth is sealed.
Life goes on.
Till one day, history changed ...
Like thief in the night,
aliens invade human.
Chaos happens prior to the new order of coexistence.
The truth is sealed.
Life goes on.
Till one day, history changed. #Quote by Toba Beta

The Thief S Journal quotes by Christopher Hale
#27. From a labour point of view, there are practically three races, the Malays the Chinese and Tamils. By nature, the Malay is an idler, the Chinaman is a thief, and the Indian is a drunkard. Yet each, in his special class of work, is both cheap and efficient when properly supervised. #Quote by Christopher Hale
The Thief S Journal quotes by Rick Riordan
The Thief S Journal quotes by Theodore Roosevelt
#29. 'Liar' is just as ugly a word as 'thief,' because it implies the presence of just as ugly a sin in one case as in the other. If a man lies under oath or procures the lie of another under oath, if he perjures himself or suborns perjury, he is guilty under the statute law. #Quote by Theodore Roosevelt
The Thief S Journal quotes by Dan Simmons
#30. In the end, it is all we are, these limpid tide pools of self-consciousness between crashing waves of pain. We are destined and designed to bear our pain with us, hugging it tight to our bellies like the young Spartan thief hiding a wolf cub so it can eat away our insides. #Quote by Dan Simmons

#32. Every artist is a cannibal/every poet is a thief/all kill for inspiration/and then sing about the grief. #Quote by Bono
The Thief S Journal quotes by Helen Kieran Reilly
#33. On the whole, mental archaeology was a sordid digging proposition. The evil men did endured, the good was infinitely more ephemeral. You could generally find out whether a man had been a horse-thief, or an embezzler or a wife-beater, if you worked hard enough, but acts of kindness, of charity, a gay spirit, vanished without leaving a trace. #Quote by Helen Kieran Reilly
The Thief S Journal quotes by Claude-Michel Schönberg
#34. What have I done?
Sweet Jesus, what have I done?
Become a thief in the night,
Become a dog on the run
And have I fallen so far,
And is the hour so late
That nothing remains but the cry of my hate,
The cries in the dark that nobody hears,
Here where I stand at the turning of the years?

If there's another way to go
I missed it twenty long years ago
My life was a war that could never be won
They gave me a number and murdered Valjean
When they chained me and left me for dead
Just for stealing a mouthful of bread

Yet why did I allow that man
To touch my soul and teach me love?
He treated me like any other
He gave me his trust
He called me brother
My life he claims for God above
Can such things be?
For I had come to hate the world
This world that always hated me

Take an eye for an eye!
Turn your heart into stone!
This is all I have lived for!
This is all I have known!

One word from him and I'd be back
Beneath the lash, upon the rack
Instead he offers me my freedom
I feel my shame inside me like a knife
He told me that I have a soul,
How does he know?
What spirit comes to move my life?
Is there another way to go?

I am reaching, but I fall
And the night is closing in
And I stare into the void
To the whirlpool of my sin
I'll escape now from the world
Fro #Quote by Claude-Michel Schönberg
The Thief S Journal quotes by Henry Hazlitt
#35. When your money is taken by a thief, you get nothing in return. When your money is taken through taxes to support needless bureaucrats, precisely the same situation exists. #Quote by Henry Hazlitt
The Thief S Journal quotes by Bob Dylan
#36. There must be some kind of way out of here,' said the joker to the thief ... #Quote by Bob Dylan
The Thief S Journal quotes by Kristen Callihan
#37. I'm having inappropriate thoughts of running off with it." I tell her solemnly. "And selling it." "There's the little thief I know." "I'd give most of the money to charity." She doesn't look convincing. "Now, now, don't try to Robin Hood it," I tease. "It messes with my mental image of your mercenary ways. #Quote by Kristen Callihan
The Thief S Journal quotes by Anne Rice
#38. You think I'm defeated. You think you've passed your judgement and that's the end of it. Oh, you think it's as simple as that. Well you are wrong. I shall never have vengeance for this moment, but you will see me again. You will see me again. #Quote by Anne Rice
The Thief S Journal quotes by Karl Kraus
#39. The triumph of morality: A thief who has broken into a bedroom claims his sense of shame had been outraged, and by threatening theoccupants with exposure of an immoral act he blackmails them into not bringing charges for burglary. #Quote by Karl Kraus
The Thief S Journal quotes by Rebecca Harding Davis
#40. Well, what was it to be a thief? He met the question at last, face to face, wiping the clammy drops of sweat from his forehead. God made this money - the fresh air, too - for his children's use. He never made the difference between poor and rich. #Quote by Rebecca Harding Davis
The Thief S Journal quotes by Elizabeth Hoyt
#41. I'll never look at you in any way but complete admiration." He stroked her hair soothingly. "You will never be a millstone about my neck. Rather you're the sunshine that brightens my day." He swallowed. "Don't you see? You brought me into the daylight. You've embraced parts of me that I was never able to let see light. Don't make me retreat again into the night. (Winter Makepeace) #Quote by Elizabeth Hoyt
