Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. [Ecclesiasticus]
Our greatest evils flow from ourselves.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
We are tainted by modern philosophy which has taught us that all is good, whereas evil has polluted everything and in a very real sense all is evil, since nothing is in its proper place.

Evil be to him who evil thinks.
What wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbear without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian.
