Quote of the Day
It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
What I call my 'self' now is hardly a person at all. It's mainly a meeting place for various natural forces, desires, and fears, etcetera, some of which come from my ancestors, and some from my education, some perhaps from devils. The self you were really intended to be is something that lives not from nature but from God.
C. S. Lewis
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
It is not because angels are holier than men or devils that makes them angels, but because they do not expect holiness from one another, but from God only.
Perfectionists are their own devils.
I see no faults in the Church, and therefore let me be resurrected with the Saints, whether I ascend to heaven or descend to hell, or go to any other place. And if we go to hell, we will turn the devils out of doors and make a heaven of it.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
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.
I've always said it's interesting to watch devils cry when angels want to stab you in the back. I like that mixture.
Somehow our devils are never quite what we expect when we meet them face to face.
I never thought of it as God. I didn't know what to call it. I don't believe in devils, but demons I do because everyone at one time or another has some kind of a demon, even if you call it by another name, that drives them.
I wanted to go back on 'Dancing With the Stars,' I did it. One of my favorite shows is 'Hawaii Five-0.' I went on, guest starred. I wanted to be in a film, did 'Tasmanian Devils' in Vancouver. Wanted to host a show, boom, did it.
There is no dignity in wickedness, whether in purple or rags; and hell is a democracy of devils, where all are equals.
I cannot help thinking that the menace of Hell makes as many devils as the severe penal codes of inhuman humanity make villains.
Now I am near to the getting of my crown, which shall be sure; for I bless the Lord, and desire all of you to bless Him that He hath brought me here, and makes me triumph over devils, and men, and sin: they shall wound me no more.
When I was growing up, we were taught in school that North Koreans, and especially the North Korean leadership, were all devils.
A rude nature is worse than a brute nature by so much more as man is better than a beast: and those that are of civil natures and genteel dispositions are as much nearer to celestial creatures as those that are rude and cruel are to devils.
There are gods, but there is no God; and all gods become devils eventually.
Robert Anton Wilson
Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.
When it comes to politics today, the devils' not in the details; the devil's in the big picture, more often than not just hiding in plain sight.
I don't believe in devils. Indifference and misunderstandings can create evil situations. Most of the time, people who appear to be evil are really victims of evil deeds.
Max von Sydow
Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision. The more a man can achieve, the more he may be certain that the devil will inhabit a part of his creation.
Though an angel should write, still 'tis devils must print.

C. S. Lewis
John F. Kennedy
