Quote by Horace
We are often deterred from crime by the disgrace of others.
This quote suggests that witnessing the shame and dishonor experienced by those who have committed crimes serves as a deterrent for us to engage in criminal behavior ourselves. It implies that the negative consequences and societal judgement faced by wrongdoers can act as a powerful deterrent, making us think twice before engaging in illegal activities. The fear of being disgraced like others acts as a moral compass, guiding us towards making ethical choices and staying on the right side of the law.
