West, Mae

13.
Remember only the good, the bad will never forget you.
Horton, Doug

14.
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

15.
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

16.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Edmund Burke

Evil be to him who evil thinks.
Edward II

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

20.
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

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

La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

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

30.
Evil comes at leisure like the disease. Good comes in a hurry like the doctor.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

31.
Whenever evil befalls us, we ought to ask ourselves, after the first suffering, how we can turn it into good. So shall we take occasion, from one bitter root, to raise perhaps many flowers.
Leigh Hunt

32.
Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
Hesiod

33.
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

34.
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.

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

39.
We may draw good out of evil; we must not do evil, that good may come.
Chapman, Maria Weston

40.
Overcome evil with good. [St. Paul]]
Bible

41.
Truly has it been said; that all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

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

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

Plato

48.
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.

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

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