Motivational Offending Quotes

May these quotes about Offending inspire and motivate you.

Laws are sand, customs are rock.
Laws can be evaded and punishment escaped,
but an openly transgressed custom brings sure punishment.

no matter, it will be inflicted, just the same.
Certainly, then, there can be but one wise thing
for a visiting stranger to do -
find out what the country's customs are,
and refrain from offending against them.
- Mark Twain

for if you merely offend them, they take vengeance,
but if you injure them greatly, they are unable to retaliate,

ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.
