Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
— John Donne

If you want to know who your friends are, get yourself a jail sentence.
Charles Bukowski jailing quote

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
— Mark Twain

Be your own palace, or the world is your jail.
— John Donne

There is always a chance that he who sets himself up as his brother's keeper will end up by being his jail-keeper.
— jailing quotation by Eric Hoffer
