Best Quotes about Evil
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.
Don't let us make imaginary evils, when you know we have so many real ones to encounter.
If there was no moral evil upon earth, there would be no physical evil.
Maistre, Joseph De
Those that are evil have not only the good against them, but also the bad.
There must always remain something that is antagonistic to good.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
There can be no existence of evil as a force to the healthy-minded individual.
When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember that it is still an evil.
Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.
Smith, Logan Pearsall
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from their house.
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.
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
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, 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.

Rousseau, Jean Jacques

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
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
There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
To do no evil is good, to intend none better.
Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree.
Them meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Evil is something you recognize immediately you see it: it works through charm.
All evil is like a nightmare; the instant you stir under it, the evil is gone.
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.
Of two evils, choose neither.
Spurgeon, Charles Haddon
When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before.
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.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Evil be to him who evil thinks.
The love of evil is the root of all money.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis
Evil deeds do not prosper; the slow man catches up with the swift.
The evil that we know is best.
Titus Maccius Plautus
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.

The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.
Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
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.
