Pinching Quotations

When I was young and we got caught pinching apples, we got a smack from the local policeman. Today if that happened he would be sued. There is a tendency to punish the victim, not the criminal. If someone broke into my house or my mum's house, I worry that the burglar has more rights than me.
Simon Cowell

Chris Brown

Caitlin Moran

Margaret Cavendish
