No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from.
There is another thing about a kid, if we all remember, that you have an attraction to evil. Evil is exciting and evil is interesting, and plenty of kids have a fascination for it.
There's always the same amount of good luck and bad luck in the world. If one person doesn't get the bad luck, somebody else will have to get it in their place. There's always the same amount of good and evil, too. We can't eradicate evil, we can only evict it, force it to move across town. And when evil moves, some good always goes with it. But we can never alter the ratio of good to evil. All we can do is keep things stirred up so neither good nor evil solidifies. That's when things get scary. Life is like a stew, you have to stir it frequently, or all the scum rises to the top.
We believe no evil till the evil's done
Jean De La Fontaine
By chasing away the Evil in us we will also chase away the Good. This is mans paradox, to search himself without ever fully finding himself. We will have to know how to maintain the balance between Good and Evil to the best , and then turn the worst Evil in a lesser Evil and God in a better Good, so that the current Good would become a evil of the future, which can also be surpassed eventually leading to the true worldwide religious society, in which religion will no longer be seen as a set of rules according to wich we have to e singing in any moment odes and Alexandrian hymns to divinity, but more likely as an indicator of true happiness and fulfilment of humanity.
I cannot account for the existence of evil by any rational method. To want to do so is to be co-equal with God.I know that He has no evil in Him, and yet if there is evil, He is the author of it and yet untouched by it.
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.
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
The question why there is evil in existence is the same as why there is imperfection... But this is the real question we ought to ask: Is this imperfection the final truth, is evil absolute and ultimate?
The gods can either take away evil from the world and will not, or, being willing to do so, cannot; or they neither can nor will, or lastly, they are both able and willing. If they have the will to remove evil and cannot, then they are not omnipotent. If they can, but will not, than they are not benevolent. If they are neither able nor willing, then they are neither omnipotent nor benevolent. Lastly, if they are both able and willing to annihilate evil, why does it exist?
You must recognize that the way to get the good out of your brother and your sister is not to return evil for evil.
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.
Little evil would be done in the world if evil never could be done in the name of good.
Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach
