Evil quotes
Evil
For one mother, joy is the quiet pleasure found in gently rubbing shampoo into her young child's hair. For another woman it's taking a long walk alone, while for yet another it's reviling in a much -- anticipated vacation.

- Stukane, Eileen
Beware of altruism. It is based on self-deception, the root of all evil.

- Excerpt from the notebooks of Lazarus Long
WALL STREET, n. A symbol for sin for every devil to rebuke. That Wall Street is a den of thieves is a belief that serves every unsuccessful thief in place of a hope in Heaven. Even the great and good Andrew Carnegie has made his profession of faith in the matter. Carnegie the dauntless has uttered his call To battle: "The brokers are parasites all!" Carnegie, Carnegie, you'll never prevail; Keep the wind of your slogan to belly your sail, Go back to your isle of perpetual brume, Silence your pibroch, doff tartan and plume: Ben Lomond is calling his son from the fray -- Fly, fly from the region of Wall Street away! While still you're possessed of a single baubee (I wish it were pledged to endowment of me) 'Twere wise to retreat from the wars of finance Lest its value decline ere your credit advance. For a man'twixt a king of finance and the sea, Carnegie, Carnegie, your tongue is too free! Anonymus Bink

- Ambrose Bierce
The man who promises everything is sure to fulfil nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises, and is already on the road to perdition.

- Jung, Carl
Money is the fruit of evil, as often as the root of it.

- Fielding, Henry
Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

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

- Bible
A resolution to avoid an evil is seldom framed till the evil is so far advanced as to make avoidance impossible.

- Hardy, Thomas
anytime you see white men suppose to fight each other an you not white, well you know you got trouble, because they blah-blah loud about Democrat or Republican an they huffing an puff about democracy someplace else but relentless, see, the deal come down evil on somebody don have no shirt an tie, somebody don live in no whiteman house no whiteman country.

- Jordan, June
It is a beautiful trait in the lovers character, that they think no evil of the object loved.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Don't speak evil of someone if you don't know for certain, and if you do know ask yourself, why am I telling it?

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities.

- Voltaire
Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

- Miller, Henry
Nothing is so contagious as an example. We never do great good or evil without bringing about more of the same on the part of others.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The forces of good and evil are working within and around me, I must choose, and in a free will universe I do have a choice.

- Sovereign
It is simply untrue that all our institutions are evil that all politicians are mere opportunists, that all aspects of university life are corrupt. Having discovered an illness, it's not terribly useful to prescribe death as a cure.

- Mcgovern, George
An apology for the Devil—it must be remembered that we have only heard one side of the case. God has written all the books.

- Samuel Butler
Dollars damn me; and the malicious Devil is forever grinning in upon me, holding the door ajar. . . . What I feel most moved to write, that is banned—it will not pay. Yet, altogether, write the other way I cannot. So the product is a final hash, and allmy books are botches.

- Herman Melville
The only way to regenerate the world is to do the duty which lies nearest us, and not to hunt after grand, far-fetched ones for ourselves. If each drop of rain chose where it should fall, God's showers would not fall as they do now, on the evil and the good alike. I know from the experience of my own heart how galling this doctrine is--how, like Naaman, one goes away in a rage, because the prophet has not bid us do some great thing, but only to go wash in the nearest brook and be clean.

- Letters and Memories. 1854.
I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.

- C. S. Lewis
