Evil quotes

If you think about it seriously, all the questions about the soul and the immortality of the soul and paradise and hell are at bottom only a way of seeing this very simple fact: that every action of ours is passed on to others according to its value, of good or evil, it passes from father to son, from one generation to the next, in a perpetual movement.

- Gramsci, Antonio

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

- Einstein, Albert

Hope in reality is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs the torments of man.

- Friedrich Nietzsche

The spread of evil is the symptom of a vacuum. whenever evil wins, it is only by default: by the moral failure of those who evade the fact that there can be no compromise on basic principles.

- Ayn Rand

When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, There arises the recognition of ugliness. When they all know the good as good, There arises the recognition of evil.

- Lao-tzu

To do nothing evil is good; to wish nothing evil is better.

- Claudius

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour.

- Bible

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

- Hood, Thomas

Have patience, have faith, have hope, as thou standest at the foot of Christ's Cross, and holdest fast to it, the anchor of the soul and reason, as well as of the heart. For, however ill the world may go, or seem to go, the Cross is the everlasting token that God so loved the world that He spared not His only-begotten Son, but freely gave Him for it. Whatsoever else is doubtful, that at least is sure--that good must conquer, because God is good, that evil must perish, because God hates evil, even to the death.

- Westminster Sermons. 1870.

Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

- Bible

Never be a cynic, even a gentle one. Never help out a sneer, even at the devil.

- Vachel Lindsay

ABSOLUTE, adj. Independent, irresponsible. An absolute monarchy is one in which the sovereign does as he pleases so long as he pleases the assassins. Not many absolute monarchies are left, most of them having been replaced by limited monarchies, where the sovereign's power for evil (and for good) is greatly curtailed, and by republics, which are governed by chance.

- Ambrose Bierce

By evil report and good report.

- Bible

Captivity is the greatest of all evils that can befall one.

- Cervantes, Miguel 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.

- Evelyn Underhill

Alimony: the ransom the happy pay to the devil.

- H. L. Mencken

Nature is not cruel, pitiless, indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous -- indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.

- Richard Dawkins

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

To marry a man out of pity is folly; and, if you think you are going to influence the kind of fellow who has never had a chance, poor devil, you are profoundly mistaken. One can only influence the strong characters in life, not the weak; and it is the height of vanity to suppose that you can make an honest man of anyone.

- Asquith, Margot

The multitude of books is a great evil. There is no limit to this fever for writing.

- Luther, Martin
