Capital punishment would be more effective as a preventive measure if it were administered prior to the crime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone would fall back of its own weight. They had thought with some reason that there is no more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rewards and punishment is the lowest form of education.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The effects of our actions may be postponed but they are never lost. There is an inevitable reward for good deeds and an inescapable punishment for bad. Meditate upon this truth, and seek always to earn good wages from Destiny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How vainly shall we endeavor to repress crime by our barbarous punishment of the poorer class of criminals so long as children are reared in the brutalizing influences of poverty, so long as the bite of want drives men to crime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Happiness is not a reward -- it is a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment -- it is a result.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sleep is a reward for some, a punishment for others. For all, it is a sanction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The Laws of Nature are just, but terrible. There is no weak mercy in them. Cause and consequence are inseparable and inevitable. The elements have no forbearance. The fire burns, the water drowns, the air consumes, the earth buries. And perhaps it would be well for our race if the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Man were as inevitable as the punishment of crimes against the Laws of Nature --were Man as unerring in his judgments as Nature.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no greater glory than love, nor any great punishment than jealously.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All pain is a punishment, and every punishment is inflicted for love as much as for justice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The study of crime begins with the knowledge of oneself. All that you despise, all that you loathe, all that you reject, all that you condemn and seek to convert by punishment springs from you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Going to the opera, like getting drunk, is a sin that carries its own punishment with it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All in all, punishment hardens and renders people more insensible; it concentrates; it increases the feeling of estrangement; it strengthens the power of resistance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Failure is not our only punishment for laziness; there is also the success of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any punishment that does not correct, that can merely rouse rebellion in whoever has to endure it, is a piece of gratuitous infamy which makes those who impose it more guilty in the eyes of humanity, good sense and reason, nay a hundred times more guilty than the victim on whom the punishment is inflicted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A punishment to some, to some a gift, and to many a favor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is the punishment of a liar: he is not believed, even when he speaks the truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Christianity, with its doctrine of humility, of forgiveness, of love, is incompatible with the state, with its haughtiness, its violence, its punishment and its wars.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The innocent are free from fear, but the guilty always the dread of punishment before their eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One is absolutely sickened, not by the crimes that the wicked have committed, but by the punishments that the good have inflicted; and a community is infinitely more brutalized by the habitual employment of punishment than it is by the occasional occurrence of crime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Caretaker Argus Filch: A pity they let the old punishment die... Was a time detention found you hanging by your thumbs in the dungeons... God, I miss the screaming.More [02/20/2007 12:02:00]
Professor McGonagall: Nothing, I repeat, nothing... gives a student the right to walk about the school at night. Therefore, as punishment for your actions, 50 points will be taken.
Harry: 50?
[Ron and Hermione also looking shocked, Draco smirking]
Professor McGonagall: Each.
[Harry's mouth drops open]
Professor McGonagall: And to ensure it doesn't happen again... all four of you will receive detention.
Draco Malfoy: [smirk suddenly fades and steps up] Excuse me, professor, perhaps I heard you wrong. I thought you said the four of us.
Professor McGonagall: No, you heard me correctly, Mr. Malfoy. You see, honorable as your intentions were, you too were out of bed after hours... You will join your classmates in detention.More [02/20/2007 12:02:00]
J.M. Barrie: In punishment for lack of an interesting pirate name, Peter shall walk the plank.More [04/10/2007 12:04:00]
Patrick Bateman: There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.More [04/23/2007 12:04:00]
Pintel: No one said anything about cold.
Ragetti: I'm sure there must be a good reason for our suffering.
Pintel: Why don't that voodoo woman bring jack back the same way she bought back Barbossa.
Tia Dalma: Because Barbossa was only dead Jack Sparrow is taken body and soul to a place not of the earth but punishment the worst fate a person can bring upon himself stretching on forever that's what awaits at Davy Jones' locker.
Ragetti: Well I knew there was a good reason.More [05/31/2007 12:05:00]
Miss Collins: [to girls] Now, my idea for this little trick you pulled was three days' suspension and refusal of your prom tickets.
[the girls gasp]
Norma: [in disbelief] What? God!
Miss Collins: That'd get you where you live, wouldn't it? And you deserve it. I don't think any of you have any idea of just how nasty what you did really was. But the office has decided you're to have one week's detention.
[the girls sigh with relief]
Miss Collins: Still, there's one little catch. It's to be my detention.
[the girls are once again perturbed]
Miss Collins: That's fifty minutes every day starting today in the athletic field. Get the picture?
Chris Hargenson: I'm not coming.
Miss Collins: That's up to you, Chris. That's up to all of you. Punishment for skipping detention is three days' suspension and refusal of your prom tickets. Any other thoughts? Good. Now change up.
[the girls proceed begrudgingly]
Chris Hargenson: Where are you going?
Norma: Come on.
Chris Hargenson: I'm not coming.
Norma: You're really not gonna come? You're gonna miss out on the prom?
Chris Hargenson: I'm not coming.
Norma: Well, I'm not gonna miss the prom.
Chris Hargenson: Fuck.More [07/09/2007 12:07:00]
Miss Shields: Now I know that some of you put Flick up to this, but he has refused to say who. But those who did it know their blame, and I'm sure that the guilt you must feel would be far worse than any punishment you might receive. Now, don't you feel terrible? Don't you feel remorse for what you have done? Well, that's all I'm going to say about poor Flick.
Ralphie as Adult: [narrating] Adults loved to say things like that but kids knew better. We knew darn well it was always better not to get caught.More [07/19/2007 12:07:00]

Liam Devlin: [Molly reading letter from Liam. The letter is read in Liam's voice] Molly, my love... as a great man once said, I have suffered to see change and yet nothing can ever be the same again. I came here to Norfolk to do a job... not to fall in love. By now you'll know the worst of me. Try not to think it. To leave you... is punishment enough. But it will not end here. For as they say in Ireland, we have known the days. Liam.More [10/04/2007 12:10:00]
Gustav: [as Danielle is about to change into a dress] Have you lost your marbles? Do you know what the punishment is... for servants who dress above their station? Five days in the stocks.
Danielle: You'd do the same for me, admit it.
Gustav: Me? Pretend to be a courtier? Prancing round like some nobleman when I've never been to court. And neither have you!
Danielle: Then I won't recongnised. Hand me that gown so I can be on my way.
[Gustav hands Danielle the gown]
Gustav: They'll never buy it. You are too sweet. They'll never buy a servant with twenty gold francs either.
Danielle: I am Maurice's only hope.
Gustav: And the Baroness, what did you tell her?
Danielle: I am picking wildflowers. Gustav, can you still see her?
Gustav: [he gazes out the window] They're buying a brooch.
Danielle: Unbelievable. She ignores the manor, blames us for her debt... and still pretends to have money to burn. Don't you dare laugh. I'm coming out.
[she steps out and looks stunning in her dress, Gustav is amazed]
Danielle: The shoes are too big.
Gustav: Nobody will be looking at your feet.
Danielle: Yards of fabric and I still feel naked.
Gustav: If you're going to be a noblewoman... you must play the part.
[he raises Danielle's chin]
Gustav: You look down to no-one.
Danielle: I am just a servant in a nice dress.
Gustav: Come.
[he takes Danielle's hand]
Gustav: We have to do something with that hair.More [10/18/2007 12:10:00]
Zeke: If anyone finds us in here, pretend we're making out. The punishment is less severe.More [10/26/2007 12:10:00]
Dawson: We joined the Marines because we wanted to live our lives by a certain code, and we found it in the Corps. Now you're asking us to sign a piece of paper that says we have no honor. You're asking us to say we're not Marines. If a court decides that what we did was wrong, then I'll accept whatever punishment they give. But I believe I was right sir, I believe I did my job, and I will not dishonor myself, my unit, or the Corps so I can go home in six months... Sir.More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
If the divorced are remarried civilly, they find themselves in a situation that objectively contravenes God’s law. Consequently, they cannot receive Holy Communion as long as this situation persists. This norm is not at all a punishment or a discrimination against the divorced and remarried, but rather expresses an objective situation that of itself renders impossible the reception of Holy Communion: ‘. . . If these people were admitted to the Eucharist, the faithful would be led into error and confusion regarding the Church’s teaching about the indissolubility of marriage’.More [11/21/2007 12:11:00]
[From televised footage]
Dean Wycoff: I, I agree with capital punishment and I believe that homosexuality is one of those that could be, uh, coupled with murder and, and other sins. It would be the government that, um, sits upon this land who would be executing the homosexuals.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]
Nicholas Angel: Yes, sir. Why is everyone eating chocolate cake?
Inspector Frank Butterman: The Black Forest gateau is on Danny, as punishment for his little indiscretion.
Nicholas Angel: His...? Sir, I don't think driving under the influence can be called a "little indiscretion."
Inspector Frank Butterman: No, the gateau is for misplacing his helmet the other week. Last night's incident will require something a rather more serious. Do you like ice cream?
Nicholas Angel: I'm sorry, sir. I don't follow.
Inspector Frank Butterman: Let's just say we won't be running short of Chunky Monkey for the next month.
Danny Butterman: [annoyed] Daaaaaad!More [03/28/2008 12:03:00]
But this is not to say that the society which inflicts capital punishment commits murder.More [03/29/2008 12:03:00]
I have also seen it stated that Capital punishment is murder in its worst form. I should like to know upon what principle of human society these assertions are based and justified.More [03/29/2008 12:03:00]
If this work can contribute in any way toward proving this, and at the same time arouse the conscience of the American people to a demand for justice to every citizen, and punishment by law for the lawless, I shall feel I have done my race a service.More [04/04/2008 12:04:00]
Admiral Kimmel: It is my duty to inform you that you have been relieved of your command, pending the findings of a court of inquiry.
Captain Torrey: I don't understand, sir.
Admiral Kimmel: You weren't zig-zagging when you took the two torpedoes.
Captain Torrey: I was stretching my fuel, sir.
Admiral Kimmel: If you didn't have fuel to complete your mission, why didn't you turn back for Pearl?
Captain Torrey: My mission was to intercept and engage an enemy of greatly superior strength, sir. I could only take that one way: that my group was expendable.
Admiral Kimmel: I doubt if a court of inquiry will accept that. Captain, you're about to be caught in a vacuum between a peacetime Navy and a wartime Navy. Six months from now, they'll be making admirals out of captains who exhibit some guts. But right now, they're only reacting to the Pearl Harbor disaster, and punishment is order-of-the-day. Of course, you don't have to abide by what a court of inquiry decides. You can ask for general court-martial, get yourself a couple of crack sea lawyers, and make a fight of it.
Captain Torrey: I wouldn't care to do that, sir.
Admiral Kimmel: Why not?
Captain Torrey: Second-generation Navy, Admiral.
Admiral Kimmel: I see. I don't plan to ask for court-martial either, Captain, and I've lost a fleet. So I expect we'll both just take what they give us, and trust it will be a useful job somewhere.
Captain Torrey: Yes, sir.
Admiral Kimmel: Good luck.
Captain Torrey: Good luck to you, sir.More [04/13/2008 12:04:00]

Judge Esposito: As a result of pre-meditated murder, this tribunal has found Joseph Dredd guilty, as charged.
Chief Justice Fargo: Joseph Dredd. This council can only provide one punishment for your crime: death. However, this last order will be carried out by a retiring senior judge. Therefore,
[stands up]
Chief Justice Fargo: ...I step down. I would like the council to honor my last order. Be lenient with Judge Dredd for his great and long service.
Judge Griffin: We shall honor this one, Judge Fargo.
[Fargo Leaves]
Judge Griffin: Judge Dredd, step forward.
[Dredd steps forward]
Judge Griffin: Your sentence should be... life imprisonment, at Aspen penal colony, that is to be carried out immediately.
[Holds out the Book of Law]
Judge Griffin: As it is written.
Judge Hershey: Judge Griffin, this trial has been a farce. I demand an appeal.
Judge Griffin: [interrupting] You will accept the court's decision, Judge Hershey.
[robot officers appear and take Dredd away]
Judge Griffin: Let the betrayal of the law be taken form our courts. May his armor be taken from him.
[the robo guards start ripping dredd's uniform and badge off of him]
Judge Griffin: And all of his glob of justice. Let him be strickened from our hearts and our memories, forever.

Alfie: What's the matter. Ah, no, no. Hey, don't get upset.
Tanya: Sorry.
Alfie: No, it's alright, man, it's alright. Ok. Why are you so upset?
Tanya: Because I'm crazy.
Alfie: No, you're not crazy.
Tanya: Yes.
Alfie: Why?
Tanya: Yes. I'm so stupid. I don't know... This city, it's like... it's like punishment for me, it's like punishment for some mistakes in my life. You know, yes, yes, really. I make so many mistakes.
Alfie: I've made mistakes. We're human beings. We all fuck up. We all make mistakes. It ain't just you. What are you doing that's so bad?
Tanya: Just... my main... I always... need... need to be in love. You know, I can't to... to live, without lo... love.

Tanya: Yes.
Alfie: No, there is not.

I further pledge my heart, my brain, my body, my limbs never to betray a comrade and that I will submit to all the tortures mankind can inflict and suffer the most horrible death rather than reveal a single word of this, my oath, before violatin' a single clause or implied pledge of this my obligation.

Do I have to say dis?

Cliff Moore:
Say it!

Frank Taylor:
I will pray to an avengin' God and an umerciful Devil to tear my heart out and roast it over the flames of sulfur, and lastly may my soul be given into the torment that my body be submerged into molten metal... and stifled into the flames of Hell, and that this punishment may be meted out to me through all eternity.

Col. Feroud:
I have here your dossier. It contains the history of your life. You're a man entirely without moral scruples of any kind. You supply the Syrians with guns and ammunition, but I respect them, they fight for a cause. Your cause is only money. While Frenchmen and Syrians kill each other, you profit by it. According to military law you have to be shot. The punishment seems hardly adequate.

Harry Smith:
What have you got me up here for? To watch me sweat, to watch me crawl? I'll bet they didn't bring Nasir up here before they shot him.

Col. Feroud:
What a pity you could only die once.

Harry Smith:
Sure, I know I'm going to be shot, but not for running guns, but because I'm something special. I made a monkey out of you. I'm the guy that ran off with your girl.

Col. Feroud:
Don't you realize if I *wanted* you shot, you'd be in a ditch right now?

I wonder why an alleged gentleman should give his first loyalty to ordinary seamen.

Fletcher Christian:
Instead of to other alleged gentlemen?

Captain Bligh:
Impertinence noted.It shall be logged. Do you care to enlarge the entry?

Fletcher Christian:
Yes, only with this observation, which I will report to the Admiralty in any case: in my years of service I have never met an officer who inflicted punishment upon men with such incredible relish. Sickening.

Captain Bligh:
Then go and be sick in your cabin, Mr Christian. I have never met a naval officer who was so proud of a weak stomach.

Dr. Brodsky:
Sin? What's all this about sin?

That! Using Ludwig van like that! He did no harm to anyone. Beethoven just wrote music!

Are you referring to the background score?

Dr. Brodsky:
