When you locate good in yourself, approve of it with determination. When you locate evil in yourself, despise it as something detestable.
A war, with its attendant human suffering, must, when that evil is unavoidable, be made to fragment more than buildings: It must shatter the foundations of thought and re-create. Only in this way does every individual share in the cataclysm and understand the purpose of sacrifice.
So the people will pay the penalty for their kings' presumption, who, by devising evil, turn justice from her path with tortuous speech.
Man's inhumanity to man is as old as humanity itself. Some people just do evil things. Most do not.

The billion are not. I choose to write for the billion.
Marriage, if one will face the truth, is an evil, but a necessary evil.
Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.
Even papists could not see that a moral evil was detained in the soul through its physical connection with the body; and that it required the dissolution of this physical connection before the moral contagion could be removed.
May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house.
We're all caught up in circumstances, and we're all good and evil. When you're really hungry, for instance, you'll do anything to survive. I think the most evil thing - well, maybe that's too strong - but certainly a very evil thing is judgment, the sin of ignorance.
Every judgement of conscience, be it right or wrong, be it about things evil in themselves or morally indifferent, is obligatory, in such wise that he who acts against his conscience always sins.

Evil is a source of moral intelligence in the sense that we need to learn from our shadow, from our dark side, in order to be good.
People like to say that the conflict is between good and evil. The real conflict is between truth and lies.
Miguel Angel Ruiz
The unique and supreme voluptuousness of love lies in the certainty of committing evil. And men and women know from birth that in evil is found all sensual delight.

Henry David Thoreau
There's nothing wrong or evil about having a bad day. There's everything wrong with making others have to have it... with you.
The power of choosing good and evil is within the reach of all.
Art is built on the deepest themes of human meaning: good and evil, beauty and ugliness, life and death, love and hate. No other story has incarnated those themes more than the story of Jesus.
