Evil

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
Evil Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evil

1.
All histories do show, and wise politicians do hold it necessary that, for the well-governing of every Commonweal, it behoveth man to presuppose that all men are evil, and will declare themselves so to be when occasion is offered.
Raleigh, Sir Walter

2.
As long as people believe in absurdities they will continue to commit atrocities.
Voltaire

3.
Some people show evil as a great racehorse shows breeding. They have the dignity of a hard chancre.
Hemingway, Ernest

What is worse than evil? The inability to bear it.
Weber, C. J.

We may draw good out of evil; we must not do evil, that good may come.
Chapman, Maria Weston

Remember only the good, the bad will never forget you.
Horton, Doug

Evil is something you recognize immediately you see it: it works through charm.
Masters, Brian

9.
Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. [Ecclesiasticus]
Bible

10.
Of two evils, it is always best to vote for the least hypocritical.
Proverb, American

11.
It is a power stronger than will. Could a stone escape from the laws of gravity? Impossible. Impossible, for evil to form an alliance with good.
Lautreamont, Isidore Ducasse, Comte De

12.
Evil, and evil spirits, devils and devil possession, are the outgrowth of man's inadequate consciousness of God. We must avoid thinking of evil as a thing in itself-a force that works against man or, against God, if you will.
Butterworth, Eric

13.
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.

14.
I have discovered that all human evil comes from this, man's being unable to sit still and quiet in a room alone.
Pascal, Blaise

15.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Bellow, Saul

There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
Haydon, Benjamin

17.
There can be no existence of evil as a force to the healthy-minded individual.
James, William

18.
By bravely enduring it, an evil which cannot be avoided is overcome
Proverb

19.
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

20.
This is the very worst wickedness, that we refuse to acknowledge the passionate evil that is in us. This makes us secret and rotten.
Lawrence, D. H.

21.
The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.
Ayn Rand

22.
Evil to him who evil thinks. (Honi Soit Qui Mal Pense)
King Edward the Third

23.
No notice is taken of a little evil, but when it increases it strikes the eye.
Aristotle

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
I couldn't claim that I have never felt the urge to explore evil, but when you descend into hell you have to be very careful.
Raine, Kathleen

27.
Overcome evil with good. [St. Paul]]
Bible

28.
It is by its promise of a sense of power that evil often attracts the weak.
Hoffer, Eric

29.
The pious pretence that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.
Crowley, Aleister

30.
Evil spelled backward is live.

31.
Nature, more of a stepmother than a mother in several ways, has sown a seed of evil in the hearts of mortals, especially in the more thoughtful men, which makes them dissatisfied with their own lot and envious of another s.
Erasmus, Desiderius

The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even -- if you will -- eccentricity. That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn't be happy with.
Brodsky, Joseph

33.
Man must vanquish himself, must do himself violence, in order to perform the slightest action untainted by evil.
Cioran, E. M.

34.
Nothing baffles the schemes of evil people so much as the calm composure of great souls.
Mirabeau, Gabriel Riqueti

35.
But evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart!
Hood, Thomas

36.
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

Life is neither good or evil, but only a place for good and evil.

Sade, Marquis De

Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
