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

The evil that we know is best.
Titus Maccius Plautus

No evil shall happen to the just.
Bible

7.
What is worse than evil? The inability to bear it.
Weber, C. J.

Brodsky, Joseph

9.
Don't let us make imaginary evils, when you know we have so many real ones to encounter.
Oliver Goldsmith

Buddha

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

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.

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

22.
All evil is like a nightmare; the instant you stir under it, the evil is gone.
Carlyle, Thomas

23.
The trouble with Eichmann was precisely that so many were like him, and that the many were neither perverted nor sadistic, that they were, and still are, terribly and terrifyingly normal. From the viewpoint of our legal institutions and of our moral standards of judgment, this normality was much more terrifying than all the atrocities put together.
Arendt, Hannah

24.
Of two evils we must always choose the least.
Thomas a Kempis

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

26.
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

27.
Often an entire city has suffered because of an evil man.
Hesiod

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

33.
There is no bad in good.
Horton, Doug

34.
They that know no evil will suspect none.
Jonson, Ben

35.
Evil be to him who evil thinks.
Edward II

36.
Submit to the present evil, lest a greater one befall you.
Phaedrus

37.
We may draw good out of evil; we must not do evil, that good may come.
Chapman, Maria Weston

38.
Those that are evil have not only the good against them, but also the bad.
Bischer

39.
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.
