Evil quotes
Evil
The person who said money is the root of all evil just flat out didn't have any.

- Wilde, Stuart
It is no little wisdom for a man to keep himself in silence and in good peace when evil words are spoken to him, and to turn his heart to God and not to be troubled with man's judgment.

- Kempis, Thomas
An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have heard only one side of the case; God has written all the books.

- Samuel Butler
To do nothing evil is good; to wish nothing evil is better.

- Claudius
The forces of good and evil are working within and around me, I must choose, and in a free will universe I do have a choice.

- Sovereign
Moderation? It's mediocrity, fear, and confusion in disguise. It's the devil's dilemma. It's neither doing nor not doing. It's the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence-sitters of the world afraid to take a stand. It's for those afraid to laugh or cry, for those afraid to live or die. Moderation...is lukewarm tea, the devil's own brew.

- Dan Millman
If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insiduously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to seperate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

- Aleksander Solzhenitsyn
IDLENESS, n. A model farm where the devil experiments with seeds of new sins and promotes the growth of staple vices.

- Ambrose Bierce
Take therefore no thought for the morrow; for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

- Bible
Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.

- Garcia, Jerry
The Supreme end of education is expert discernment in all things -- the power to tell the good from the bad, the genuine from the counterfeit, and to prefer the good and the genuine to the bad and the counterfeit.

- Johnson, Samuel
There exist some evils so terrible and some misfortunes so horrible that we dare not think of them, whilst their very aspect makes us shudder; but if they happen to fall on us, we find ourselves stronger than we imagined, we grapple with our ill luck, and behave better than we expected we should.

- Jean de La Bruyere
Watching old movies is like spending an evening with those people next door. They bore us, and we wouldn't go out of our way to see them; we drop in on them because they're so close. If it took some effort to see old movies, we might try to find out which were the good ones, and if people saw only the good ones maybe they would still respect old movies. As it is, people sit and watch movies that audiences walked out on thirty years ago. Like Lot's wife, we are tempted to take another look, attracted not by evil but by something that seems much more shameful -- our own innocence.

- Kael, Pauline
Evil spelled backward is live.

Railing and praising were his usual themes; and both showed his judgment in extremes. Either over violent or over civil, so everyone to him was either god or devil.

- Dryden, John
The devil hath power To assume a pleasing shape.

- William Shakespeare
True poetry, like true charity, my laddie, begins at home. . . . Hech! is there no the heaven above them there, and the hell beneath them? and God frowning, and the devil grinning? No poetry there! Is no the verra idea of the classic tragedy defined to be man conquered by circumstance? canna ye see it there? And the verra idea of the modern tragedy, man conquering circumstance? and I'll show ye that too--in many a garret where no eye but the good God's enters to see the patience, and the fortitude, and the self-sacrifice, and the love stronger than death, that's shining in those dark places of the earth. "Ah, poetry's grand--but fact is grander; God and Satan are grander. All around ye, in every gin-shop and costermonger's cellar, are God and Satan at death-grips; every garret is a haill Paradise Lost or Paradise Regained."

- Alton Locke, chap. viii. 1849.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.

- Thomas a Kempis
A Sunday school is a prison in which children do penance for the evil conscience of their parents.

- H. L. Mencken
There is no explanation for evil. It must be looked upon as a necessary part of the order of the universe. To ignore it is childish, to bewail it senseless.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
