Thief Quotations

Pope Paul III was the greatest thief in the history of the church.
Peter O'Toole

Dave Grohl

Mario Cuomo

I am not going to Heaven because I have preached to great crowds or read the Bible many times. I'm going to Heaven just like the thief on the cross who said in that last moment: 'Lord, remember me.'
Billy Graham

I've been falsely accused of drawing too much from real life. But I am a petty thief - I take little things. And, I mean, I can hardly write 10 words before I start to make things up. I start to invent, because that's what I want to do. I'm running away to an invented place.
Lorrie Moore
