Fortune and Justice.
In the novel The Godfather by Mario Puzo, the author quotes a line from Balzac: "Behind every great fortune lies a crime." Do you think this is true or false? And why?
False) Criminals will embrace it, the wealthy will refute it and we look at both with reservation. Every fortune made from ill, another made with honest will. If the statement were true, then there are a lot of us on the road to crime. Will we meet the test, we can not escape it. Meeting it, some will dance and some will go back to work.
It would depend on how you defined fortune.
For example: I have had the great fortune of cheating death for 22 years, but I haven't committed any crimes.
I also have the great fortune of having a fair amount of money in my account each month. However, I am disabled and on benefits and have committed no crimes to get it!
So unless it is a literal effect, then no, I think this is false!
True why bec the devil will give everything you desire in return you get sorrow.whn the devil gives u somthing he is takening away from someone else.This is the devil world we are living in do right by god and he will give you and your family in do time never rush just pray he is listing 2 u always even if you think he is not he just wants to knw that you really belive in him. the devil wants you to think that he is all you have NO GOD IS GREAT HE IS WHO YOU CALL ON AND YOU WONT BE DISAPPONTIED HE ASK NOTHING IN RETURN ONLY DO RIGHT BY HIM AND TO LOVE HIM AND TO SPEAK HIS WORD. GOD BLESS.
I dont think that this statement stands true. There are so many success stories that we come across in our daily lives. but all of them have not been achieved by relying on a crime.

Paul Harvey, April 3rd, 1965, "If I were the devil." Consider society when Paul Harvey first aired this, and how much has transpired to fulfill it already. Forewarned, yet still we stay true to the destructive course.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz714GAXXU4

Would you turn in your son or daughter to the police if they committed a crime or help them getaway?

I've been told numerous times that "creating money out of thin air" is a good thing. And when I argued against it, the "conscience of the liberal" told me I was ignorant.Then, when I pointed out that the money went straight into companies that didn't deserve it, they said...
