"To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good, and no-one in his right mind will believe this today."
by Albert Camus

"In jail a man has no personality. He is a minor disposal problem and a few entries on reports. Nobody cares who loves or hates him, what he looks like, what he did with his life. Nobody reacts to him unless he gives trouble. Nobody abuses him. All that is asked of him is that he go quietly to the right cell and remain quiet when he gets there. There is nothing to fight against, nothing to be mad at. The jailers are quiet men without animosity or sadism. All this stuff you read about men yelling and screaming, beating against the bars, running spoons along them, guards rushing in with clubs -- all that is for the big house. A good jail is one of the quietest places in the world. Life in jail is in suspension."
by Raymond Chandler

Quotes are very powerful and, on the surface, they are just a bunch of some wonderful words but when you ponder and think carefully over them, they reveal some powerful ideas to solve your problems.

In simple words we can say that everyone loves quotes just because how relatable they can be with your real life and that’s all what it matters about a good quote.

A Good Quote must be simplistic and easy to understand and remember, and they also must be relatable with what is in our heart. In addition to this I also think that quotes are very helpful and they help you to focus on your work at a particular time and there are also some more good quotes which give you an ability to think more effectively and bring some wonderful ideas from your mind.

Unfortunately, we always try to do something grateful every time in our life and fail, which will lead to discouragements for us. Every time we try do something like our school projects, our office project and college stuffs and at the end we fail, we start to feel discourage.  Maybe you are trying to get a good job and going for the interviews from a month or more and not getting good job. Maybe you are trying to lose your weight and not getting into shape.

After all these problems some good bunch of words which we say a good quote can motivate you and bring some happiness into your life. A good quote can also motivate you to do your work more efficiently and be focused all the time.

So here I have a good bunch of all those words which we have collected from some top internet sources. Here is our best ever collection of Prison quotes which we could find. Some will make you think and uplift your, but the most important thing is some of my Prison quotes will inspire you to live a wonderful life.

We’ve shuffle the quotes by author name, there are few unknown author’s Prison quotes as well. Hope you fill find these inspiring as they meant to be.

Best Prison Quotes by Various Authors

"We are all conceived in close prison; in our mothers wombs, we are close prisoners all; when we are born, we are born but to the liberty of the house; prisoners still, though within larger walls; and then all our life is but a going out to the place of execution, to death."
by John Donne

by Elizabeth Drew

"Such is the remorseless progression of human society, shedding lives and souls as it goes on its way. It is an ocean into which men sink who have been cast out by the law and consigned, with help most cruelly withheld, to moral death. The sea is the pitiless social darkness into which the penal system casts those it has condemned, an unfathomable waste of misery. The human soul, lost in those depths, may become a corpse. Who shall revive it?"
by Victor Hugo

"Jails and prisons are the complement of schools; so many less as you have of the latter, so many more must you have of the former."
by Horace Mann

"Before we can diminish our sufferings from the ill-controlled aggressive assaults of fellow citizens, we must renounce the philosophy of punishment, the obsolete, vengeful penal attitude. In its place we would seek a comprehensive, constructive social attitude - therapeutic in some instances, restraining in some instances, but preventive in its total social impact.In the last analysis this becomes a question of personal morals and values. No matter how glorified or how piously disguised, vengeance as a human motive must be personally repudiated by each and every one of us. This is the message of old religions and new psychiatries. Unless this message is heard, unless we ... can give up our delicious satisfactions in opportunities for vengeful retaliation on scapegoats, we cannot expect to preserve our peace, our public safety, or our mental health....But the punitive attitude persists. And just so long as the spirit of vengeance has the slightest vestige of respectability, so long as it pervades the public mind and infuses its evil upon the statute books of the law, we will make no headway toward the control of crime. We cannot assess the most appropriate and effective penalties so long as we seek to inflict retaliatory pain."
by Karl Menninger

"It was only when I lay there on the rotting prison straw that I sensed within myself the fIrst stirrings of good. Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not between states nor between social classes nor between political parties, but right through every human heart, through all human hearts. And that is why I turn back to the years of my imprisonment and say, sometimes to the astonishment of those about me, bless you, prison, for having been a part of my life."

"Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also a prison."

"Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail. It won't fatten the dog."

"Anyone who has been to an English public school will always feel comparatively at home in prison. It is the people brought up in the gay intimacy of the slums who find prison so soul-destroying."

"I know not whether Laws be right or whether Laws be wrong; all that we know who live in gaol is that the wall is strong; and that each day is like a year, a year whose days are long."

"A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push."
