The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.
Ayn Rand

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.

Gandhi, Mahatma

13.
Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.
Smith, Logan Pearsall

All evils are equal when they are extreme.
Corneille, Pierre

Weil, Simone

Leigh Hunt

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.
Seneca

There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.
