Famous quotes containing the words italy, organized and/or crime:

    Lump the whole thing! Say that the Creator made Italy from designs by Michael Angelo!
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    If you complain of people being shot down in the streets, of the absence of communication or social responsibility, of the rise of everyday violence which people have become accustomed to, and the dehumanization of feelings, then the ultimate development on an organized social level is the concentration camp.... The concentration camp is the final expression of human separateness and its ultimate consequence. It is organized abandonment.
    Arthur Miller (b. 1915)

    The penalty may be removed, the crime is eternal.
    Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
