To use for our exclusive benefit what is not ours is theft.

Photography is always a kind of stealing. A theft from the subject. Artists are assaulters in a lot of ways, and the viewer is complicit in that assault.
Hanya Yanagihara
By its nature, governments and taxes are not voluntary. Government actions are violent and coercive, and theft as well.
Jeff Berwick
A robber who justified his theft by saying that he really helped his victims, by his spending giving a boost to retail trade, would find few converts; but when this theory is clothed in Keynesian equations and impressive references to the ‘multiplier effect,’ it unfortunately carries more conviction.
Murray Rothbard
Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

When I was 7 years old, I announced that I was going to write a book about pollution. I didn’t get around to it until I was 29, but I always recognized that pollution was a theft. That it was a way of stealing something from the public – the common earth.
Robert Kennedy, Jr.
The United States was founded on the triple sin of slavery, genocide, and land theft.

Rashida Tlaib
What’s cooler than pretending you hate money and giving away someone else’s stuff under the guise of ‘fairness?’ You know what’s cooler than that? Having the ability to make your own money, your own damn choices and not being subjected to mob theft that steals opportunity right out from under you.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
Wage theft, worker rights and workplace discrimination should not be swept under the rug. The United States cannot have a functional economy where all the gains go to the corporate class while all the pain goes to regular workers.
James P. Hoffa
As the economy goes south, petty theft begins. And then grand theft. And then muggings.
John McAfee
Healthy competition is good for the global economy. Criminal conduct is not. Rampant theft is not. Cheating is not.
Christopher A. Wray
When you’re doing something for the first time, you don’t know it’s going to work. You spend seven or eight years working on something, and then it’s copied. I have to be honest: the first thing I can think, all those weekends that I could have at home with my family but didn’t. I think it’s theft, and it’s lazy.
Jonathan Ive

Bob Kahn
Let me make it clear: The Disbursement Allocation Program is not pork barrel. Of the DAP releases in 2011 and 2012, only nine percent was disbursed for projects suggested by legislators. The DAP is not theft. Theft is illegal.

Jon Favreau
Theft annoys me more than anything else. The purloining of effects from another magician. Some people think it’s massive to steal the secrets of nuclear reactors, but to steal a card move is trivial. They’re wrong.

Tommy Tuberville
It’s sad when ‘Grand Theft Auto’ has more consequences for criminal behavior than real life.
Brianna Wu

Newt Gingrich
All, all is theft, all is unceasing and rigorous competition in nature; the desire to make off with the substance of others is the foremost – the most legitimate – passion nature has bred into us and, without doubt, the most agreeable one.
Marquis de Sade
There was a theft! But, of course, if it was up to me, every two years I would win an Oscar.

Citizens identify with something larger than themselves – if one’s country is attacked, it can feel like a personal attack in a way that a fellow bank customer’s account theft does not feel like a personal invasion.
Jonathan Zittrain
I used to play ‘Grand Theft Auto’ when I was an early teen, between eleven and thirteen.
