Quote of the Day
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Winners embrace hard work. They love the discipline of it, the trade-off they're making to win. Losers, on the other hand, see it as punishment. And that's the difference.
If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.
There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy.
Lope de Vega
Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
As long as you have capital punishment there is no guarantee that innocent people won't be put to death.
Behaving morally because of a hope of reward or a fear of punishment is not morality. Morality is not bribery or threats. Religion is bribery and threats. Humans have morality. We don't need religion.
Crimes against children are the most heinous crime. That, for me, would be a reason for capital punishment because children are innocent and need the guidance of an adult society.
Punishment is justice for the unjust.
Homosexuality in Russia is a crime and the punishment is seven years in prison, locked up with the other men. There is a three year waiting list.
Corporal punishment is as humiliating for him who gives it as for him who receives it; it is ineffective besides. Neither shame nor physical pain have any other effect than a hardening one.
To work without attachment is to work without the expectation of reward or fear of any punishment in this world or the next. Work so done is a means to the end, and God is the end.
There's only one reason to be crucified under the Roman Empire, and that is for treason or sedition. Crucifixion, we have to understand, was not actually a form of capital punishment for Rome. In fact, it was often the case that the criminal would be killed first and then crucified.
Punishment may make us obey the orders we are given, but at best it will only teach an obedience to authority, not a self-control which enhances our self-respect.
Work is not man's punishment. It is his reward and his strength and his pleasure.
Capital punishment is as fundamentally wrong as a cure for crime as charity is wrong as a cure for poverty.
Punishment is not for revenge, but to lessen crime and reform the criminal.
The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else.
George Bernard Shaw
To be misunderstood can be the writer's punishment for having disturbed the reader's peace. The greater the disturbance, the greater the possibility of misunderstanding.
A person who has been punished is not less inclined to behave in a given way; at best, he learns how to avoid punishment.
B. F. Skinner
Capital punishment is our society's recognition of the sanctity of human life.
The generality of men are naturally apt to be swayed by fear rather than reverence, and to refrain from evil rather because of the punishment that it brings than because of its own foulness.
No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes. On the contrary, whatever the punishment, once a specific crime has appeared for the first time, its reappearance is more likely than its initial emergence could ever have been.

John F. Kennedy
