Evil Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evil

1.
There must always remain something that is antagonistic to good.
Plato

2.
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

3.
Don't let us make imaginary evils, when you know we have so many real ones to encounter.
Oliver Goldsmith

4.
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

5.
Evil comes at leisure like the disease. Good comes in a hurry like the doctor.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

6.
Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree.
Proverb, Ethiopian

7.
There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.
Buddha

8.
My mother's obsession with the good scissors always scared me a bit. It implied that somewhere in the house there lurked: the evil scissors.
Martin, Tony

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction.
Blaise Pascal

12.
All things may corrupt when minds are prone to evil.
Ovid

13.
There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
Haydon, Benjamin

14.
Remember only the good, the bad will never forget you.
Horton, Doug

15.
Every sweet has its sour; every evil its good.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
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

17.
Evil deeds do not prosper; the slow man catches up with the swift.
Homer

18.
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

19.
No notice is taken of a little evil, but when it increases it strikes the eye.
Aristotle

20.
The end excuses any evil.
Sophocles

21.
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.
Theodore Roosevelt

22.
Evil is obvious only in retrospect.
Gloria Steinem

23.
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

24.
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

25.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
King Jr. Martin Luther

26.
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

27.
Nothing is easier than to denounce the evildoer; nothing is more difficult than to understand him.
Fyodor Dostoevsky

28.
Must I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.
Gandhi, Mahatma

29.
We must as second best...take the least of the evils.
Aristotle

30.
Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
Hesiod

31.
Of two evils, it is always best to vote for the least hypocritical.
Proverb, American

32.
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.

33.
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.

34.
There can be no existence of evil as a force to the healthy-minded individual.
James, William

35.
It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death.
Mary Renault

36.
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

37.
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other ones invariably slink in after it.
Gracian, Baltasar

38.
Evil when we are in its power is not felt as evil but as a necessity, or even a duty.
Simone Weil

39.
They that know no evil will suspect none.
Jonson, Ben

40.
What wisdom can there be to choose, what continence to forbear without the knowledge of evil? He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian.
Milton, John

41.
Our greatest evils flow from ourselves.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

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

50.
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
Plato
