It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death.
Mary Renault

Euripides

Smith, Logan Pearsall

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

23.
All evil is like a nightmare; the instant you stir under it, the evil is gone.
Carlyle, Thomas

Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.
Baudelaire, Charles

Submit to the present evil, lest a greater one befall you.
Phaedrus

27.
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other ones invariably slink in after it.
Gracian, Baltasar

28.
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

29.
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
Plato

30.
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

31.
The Supreme end of education is expert discernment in all things -- the power to tell the good from the bad, the genuine from the counterfeit, and to prefer the good and the genuine to the bad and the counterfeit.
Johnson, Samuel

32.
Our greatest evils flow from ourselves.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
