Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
Best Quotes about Evil
I couldn't claim that I have never felt the urge to explore evil, but when you descend into hell you have to be very careful.
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
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness.
Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
Of two evils, it is always best to vote for the least hypocritical.
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.
There can be no existence of evil as a force to the healthy-minded individual.
No evil is without its compensation. The less money, the less trouble; the less favor, the less envy. Even in those cases which put us out of wits, it is not the loss itself, but the estimate of the loss that troubles us.
Evil comes at leisure like the disease. Good comes in a hurry like the doctor.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
Evil spelled backward is live.
Evil is nourished and grows by concealment.
Evil when we are in its power is not felt as evil but as a necessity, or even a duty.
No evil shall happen to the just.
But what is the greatest evil? If you are going to epitomize evil, what is it? Is it the bomb? The greatest evil that one has to fight constantly, every minute of the day until one dies, is the worse part of oneself.
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree.
It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine.
Darwin, Charles R.
Remember only the good, the bad will never forget you.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
What is worse than evil? The inability to bear it.
Weber, C. J.
It is a power stronger than will. Could a stone escape from the laws of gravity? Impossible. Impossible, for evil to form an alliance with good.
Lautreamont, Isidore Ducasse, Comte De
Man must vanquish himself, must do himself violence, in order to perform the slightest action untainted by evil.
Cioran, E. M.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.-
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.
Our greatest evils flow from ourselves.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Evil is neither suffering nor sin; it is both at the same time, it is something common to them both. For they are linked together; sin makes us suffer and suffering makes us evil, and this indissoluble complex of suffering and sin is the evil in which we are submerged against our will, and to our horror.
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.
Maistre, Joseph De
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.
The love of evil is the root of all money.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
There must always remain something that is antagonistic to good.
The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even -- if you will -- eccentricity. That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn't be happy with.
Nothing in the nature around us is evil. This needs to be repeated since one of the human ways of talking oneself into inhuman acts is to cite the supposed cruelty of nature.
Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.
There is no bad in good.
Life is neither good or evil, but only a place for good and evil.
To rid ourselves of our shadows -- who we are -- we must step into either total light or total darkness. Goodness and evil.
Johnson, Jeremy P.
The end excuses any evil.
There is hardly a man clever enough to recognize the full extent of the evil he does.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Evil, and evil spirits, devils and devil possession, are the outgrowth of man's inadequate consciousness of God. We must avoid thinking of evil as a thing in itself-a force that works against man or, against God, if you will.
If there was no moral evil upon earth, there would be no physical evil.
Maistre, Joseph De
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other ones invariably slink in after it.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis
Must I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.
Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.
Smith, Logan Pearsall
