Cioran, E. M.
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
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.

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
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
Evil spelled backward is live.
Life is neither good or evil, but only a place for good and evil.
Nothing baffles the schemes of evil people so much as the calm composure of great souls.
Mirabeau, Gabriel Riqueti
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.
It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine.
Darwin, Charles R.

La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis
Evil is obvious only in retrospect.

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.
There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
Overcome evil with good. [St. Paul]]
The love of evil is the root of all money.
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.

Maistre, Joseph De
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten.
