Murther, though it have no tongue, will speak
  With most miraculous organ.
      - William Shakespeare

Murder most foul, as in the best it is,
  But this most foul, strange, and unnatural.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark (Ghost at I, v)

For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
  With most miraculous organ.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at II, ii)

'A took my father grossly, full of bread,
  With all his crimes broad blown, as flush as May;
    And how his audit stands, who knows save heaven?
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, iii)

No place indeed should murder sanctuarize;
  Revenge should have no bounds.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)

O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
  That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!
    Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
      That ever lived in the tide of times.
        Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Antony at III, i)

Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood
  Clean from my hand? No, this my hand will rather
    The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
      Making the green one red.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at II, ii)

Blood hath been shed ere now, i' th' olden time,
  Ere humane stature purged the gentle weal;
    Ay, and since too, murders have been performed
      Too terrible for the ear. The time has been
        That, when the brains were out, the man would die,
          And there an end. But now they rise again,
            With twenty mortal murders on their crowns,
              And push us from our stools. This is more strange
                Than such a murder is.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at III, iv)

Erroneous vassals! the great King of Kings
  Hath in the table of his law commanded
    That thou shalt do no murder. Will you then
      Spurn at his edict, and fulfil a man's?
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Clarence at I, iv)

Assassination is the extreme form of censorship.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        The Showing-Up of Blanco Posnet

All men kill the thing they hate, too, unless, of course, it kills them first.
      - James Thurber

Killing no murder.
      - Col. Sillius (Silas) Titus,
        Harleian Miscellany,
        title of a tract ascribed to him recommending the murder of Cromwell

It is one of the incidents of the profession.
  [Lat., E un incidente del mestiere.]
      - Umberto I,
        said after escaping an assassination

Every unpunished murder takes away something from the security of every man's life.
      - Daniel Webster

Other sins only speak, murder shrieks out.
  The element of water moistens the earth, But blood flies upwards and bedews the heavens.
      - Daniel Webster

Cast not the clouded gem away,
  Quench not the dim but living ray,--
    My brother man, Beware!
      With that deep voice which from the skies
        Forbade the Patriarch's sacrifice.
          God's angel, cries, Forbear!
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Human Sacrifice
         (pt. VII)

One to destroy is murder by the law,
  And gibbets keep the lifted hand in awe;
    To murder thousands takes a specious name,
      War's glorious art, and gives immortal fame.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire VII, l. 55)
