Henry Ward Beecher – Crime never pays its own way

Share this quote:
Henry Ward BeecherJails are built out of honest men’s earnings. Courts are supported from peaceful men’s property. Penitentiaries are built by the toil of virtue. Crime never pays its own way. Vice has no hands to work, no head to calculate. Its whole faculty is to corrupt and to waste; and good men, directly or indirectly, foot the bill.

Henry Ward Beecher
