Maugham, W. Somerset
We must as second best...take the least of the evils.
Submit to the present evil, lest a greater one befall you.
Evil is something you recognize immediately you see it: it works through charm.
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.

Burroughs, William S.

Of two evils, it is always best to vote for the least hypocritical.
The evil that we know is best.
Titus Maccius Plautus
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.
As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
My mother's obsession with the good scissors always scared me a bit. It implied that somewhere in the house there lurked: the evil scissors.
Evil comes at leisure like the disease. Good comes in a hurry like the doctor.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Evil is nourished and grows by concealment.
What is worse than evil? The inability to bear it.
Weber, C. J.
The love of evil is the root of all money.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness.
So far as we are human, what we do must be either evil or good: so far as we do evil or good, we are human: and it is better, in a paradoxical way, to do evil than to do nothing: at least we exist.
Eliot, T. S.
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.
Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from their house.
Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.
Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
They that know no evil will suspect none.
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
Truly has it been said; that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Them meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Every minute you are thinking of evil, you might have been thinking of good instead. Refuse to pander to a morbid interest in your own misdeeds. Pick yourself up, be sorry, shake yourself, and go on again.
Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
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

No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
Of two evils, choose neither.
