Evil

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
Evil Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Evil

1.
Evil is unspectacular and always human, and shares our bed and eats at our own table.
Auden, W. H.

2.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
Mae West

3.
Them meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

4.
The pious pretence that evil does not exist only makes it vague, enormous and menacing.
Crowley, Aleister

5.
Evil spelled backward is live.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Nothing baffles the schemes of evil people so much as the calm composure of great souls.
Mirabeau, Gabriel Riqueti

9.
Evil deeds do not prosper; the slow man catches up with the swift.
Homer

10.
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

11.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
Corneille, Pierre

12.
There is hardly a man clever enough to recognize the full extent of the evil he does.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

13.
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.

14.
The end excuses any evil.
Sophocles

15.
It is a cursed evil to any man to become as absorbed in any subject as I am in mine.
Darwin, Charles R.

16.
One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
Eliot, George

17.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it.
King Jr. Martin Luther

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.
Whoever rewards evil for good, evil will not depart from their house.
Bible

20.
The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it.
Ayn Rand

21.
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

22.
No notice is taken of a little evil, but when it increases it strikes the eye.
Aristotle

23.
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

24.
Life is neither good or evil, but only a place for good and evil.
Aurelius, Marcus

25.
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

26.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Bellow, Saul

27.
Wicked is not much worse than indiscreet.
Donne, John

28.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious conviction.
Blaise Pascal

29.
By bravely enduring it, an evil which cannot be avoided is overcome
Proverb

30.
Overcome evil with good. [St. Paul]]
Bible

31.
Only among people who think no evil can Evil monstrously flourish.
Smith, Logan Pearsall

32.
We may draw good out of evil; we must not do evil, that good may come.
Chapman, Maria Weston

33.
When you choose the lesser of two evils, always remember that it is still an evil.
Lerner, Max

34.
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other ones invariably slink in after it.
Gracian, Baltasar

35.
Evil enters like a needle and spreads like an oak tree.
Proverb, Ethiopian

36.
But evil is wrought by want of thought as well as want of heart!
Hood, Thomas

37.
It is bitter to lose a friend to evil, before one loses him to death.
Mary Renault

38.
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

39.
When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before.
West, Mae

40.
Evil is something you recognize immediately you see it: it works through charm.
Masters, Brian

41.
There is no bad in good.
Horton, Doug

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

45.
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

46.
The evil that we know is best.
Titus Maccius Plautus

47.
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.

48.
Do not seek evil gains; evil gains are the equivalent of disaster.
Hesiod

49.
There can be no existence of evil as a force to the healthy-minded individual.
James, William

50.
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
