Evil

Nothing in the nature around us is evil. This needs to be repeated since one of the human ways of talking oneself into inhuman acts is to cite the supposed cruelty of nature.
- Berger, John
Evil Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evil

1.
To rid ourselves of our shadows -- who we are -- we must step into either total light or total darkness. Goodness and evil.
Johnson, Jeremy P.

Sade, Marquis De

Proverb, American

9.

Leigh Hunt

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!
Hood, Thomas

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

17.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis

The pious pretence that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.
Crowley, Aleister

Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
Donne, John

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

Evil is neither suffering nor sin; it is both at the same time, it is something common to them both. For they are linked together; sin makes us suffer and suffering makes us evil, and this indissoluble complex of suffering and sin is the evil in which we are submerged against our will, and to our horror.
Weil, Simone

31.
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.

Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from their house.

Johnson, Samuel

But what is the greatest evil? If you are going to epitomize evil, what is it? Is it the bomb? The greatest evil that one has to fight constantly, every minute of the day until one dies, is the worse part of oneself.
Mcgoohan, Patrick
