Quotable: Karl Menninger

The common sense time to go to bed is when it gets dark; the uncommon sense of artificial illumination has changed all that. Crime problems have been dealt with too long with only the aid of common sense.

Catch criminals and lock them up; if they hit you, hit them back. This is common sense, but it does not work.

From The Crime of Punishment,
by Karl Menninger
