They that know no evil will suspect none.
Best Quotes about Evil
Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.
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.
No notice is taken of a little evil, but when it increases it strikes the eye.
Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.
Our greatest evils flow from ourselves.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
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.
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
Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. [Ecclesiasticus]
The evil that we know is best.
Titus Maccius Plautus
Truly has it been said; that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.
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.
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.
Evil is a moral entity and not a created one, an eternal and not a perishable entity: it existed before the world; it constituted the monstrous, the execrable being who was also to fashion such a hideous world. It will hence exist after the creatures which people this world.
Sade, Marquis De
Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from their house.
I have discovered that all human evil comes from this, man's being unable to sit still and quiet in a room alone.
Evil draws men together.
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.
The end excuses any evil.
Remember only the good, the bad will never forget you.
The love of evil is the root of all money.
When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember that it is still an evil.
Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
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.
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.
Nature, more of a stepmother than a mother in several ways, has sown a seed of evil in the hearts of mortals, especially in the more thoughtful men, which makes them dissatisfied with their own lot and envious of another s.
There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
Evil be to him who evil thinks.
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
I am one of those who think like Nobel, than humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.
Curie, Madame Marie
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.
Evil brings men together.
It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death.
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
Evil spelled backward is live.
There is only one good -- knowledge; and only one evil -- ignorance.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
Nothing baffles the schemes of evil people so much as the calm composure of great souls.
Mirabeau, Gabriel Riqueti
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.
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.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction.
All histories do show, and wise politicians do hold it necessary that, for the well-governing of every Commonweal, it behoveth man to presuppose that all men are evil, and will declare themselves so to be when occasion is offered.
Raleigh, Sir Walter
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis
Evil is something you recognize immediately you see it: it works through charm.
The face of evil is always the face of total need.
Burroughs, William S.
Evil to him who evil thinks. (Honi Soit Qui Mal Pense)
King Edward the Third
The pious pretence that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.
