Evil Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evil

1.
Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. [Ecclesiasticus]
Bible

2.
There must always remain something that is antagonistic to good.
Plato

3.
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

4.
Some people show evil as a great racehorse shows breeding. They have the dignity of a hard chancre.
Hemingway, Ernest

5.
To do no evil is good, to intend none better.
Claudius

6.
The pious pretence that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.
Crowley, Aleister

7.
But evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart!
Hood, Thomas

8.
No man is justified in doing evil on the ground of expediency.
Theodore Roosevelt

9.
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.

10.
By bravely enduring it, an evil which cannot be avoided is overcome
Proverb

11.
No evil shall happen to the just.
Bible

12.
Evil is obvious only in retrospect.
Gloria Steinem

13.
Nothing is easier than to denounce the evildoer; nothing is more difficult than to understand him.
Fyodor Dostoevsky

14.
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

15.
There surely is in human nature an inherent propensity to extract all the good out of all the evil.
Haydon, Benjamin

16.
The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.
Ayn Rand

17.
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
Eliot, George

18.
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

19.
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.

20.
Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with good.
Gandhi, Mahatma

21.
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

22.
Evil when we are in its power is not felt as evil but as a necessity, or even a duty.
Simone Weil

23.
Evil spelled backward is live.

24.
Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.
Smith, Logan Pearsall

25.
Evil comes at leisure like the disease. Good comes in a hurry like the doctor.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

26.
The end excuses any evil.
Sophocles

27.
It is by its promise of a sense of power that evil often attracts the weak.
Hoffer, Eric

28.
The face of evil is always the face of total need.
Burroughs, William S.

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.
Plato

33.
Evil be to him who evil thinks.
Edward II

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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
He harms himself who does harm to another, and the evil plan is most harmful to the planner.
Hesiod

39.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction.
Blaise Pascal

40.
It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death.
Mary Renault

41.
Of two evils, it is always best to vote for the least hypocritical.
Proverb, American

42.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Bellow, Saul

43.
Evil is nourished and grows by concealment.
Virgil

44.
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

45.
Overcome evil with good. [St. Paul]]
Bible

46.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
Corneille, Pierre

47.
There is no explanation for evil. It must be looked upon as a necessary part of the order of the universe. To ignore it is childish, to bewail it senseless.
Maugham, W. Somerset

48.
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

49.
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness.
Wollstonecraft, Mary

50.
The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he doesn't exist
Baudelaire, Charles
