Robbery Quotations

Bad seed is a robbery of the worst kind: for your pocket-book not only suffers by it, but your preparations are lost and a season passes away unimproved.
George Washington

If taxation without consent is not robbery, then any band of robbers have only to declare themselves a government, and all their robberies are legalized.
Lysander Spooner

Saint Augustine

Property is organized robbery.
George Bernard Shaw

The fascination for the Great Train Robbery has never diminished.
