The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn't exist
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
King Jr. Martin Luther

Sade, Marquis De
Evil draws men together.
What is worse than evil? The inability to bear it.

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
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.
But evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart!

Evil to him who evil thinks. (Honi Soit Qui Mal Pense)
King Edward the Third
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.
