Richard Le Gallienne
No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.

Nothing is so wretched or foolish as to anticipate misfortunes. What madness is it to be expecting evil before it comes.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
The most momentous thing in human life is the art of winning the soul to good or evil.
Death is not evil, for it frees man from all ills and takes away his desires along with desire's rewards.

Although God loves us unconditionally, He does get angry at sin, wickedness and evil. But He is not an angry God. God hates sin, but He loves sinners! He will never approve of sin in your life, but He always loves you and wants to work with you to make progress in living a holy life in Christ.

It gets crazy in my mind sometimes but the reason why I like to express so much positivity on my Twitter is because I think we all are battling evil thoughts.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
