Evil

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

Eliot, T. S.

7.
No notice is taken of a little evil, but when it increases it strikes the eye.

Ayn Rand

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

Proverb, American

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

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.

29.
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

I am one of those who think like Nobel, than humanity will draw more good than evil from new discoveries.

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

33.
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

34.
Before man is life and death, good and evil; that which he shall choose shall be given him. [Ecclesiasticus]
Bible

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
