It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.
Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
Satan, the leader or dictator of devils, is the opposite, not of God, but of Michael.
C. S. Lewis
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
Perfectionists are their own devils.
I've always said it's interesting to watch devils cry when angels want to stab you in the back. I like that mixture.
Man can hardly even recognize the devils of his own creation.
The city of angels? It's the city of devils. The city of smiling cobras.
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.
Educate men without religion and you make of them but clever devils.
Duke of Wellington
Powerful people are always in charge. You have to acknowledge that and deal with it as a reality. They're not devils. They're not monsters. They're human beings, like us, that have their share of insecurities and fears. You have to contemplate that as you go through life.
There is no dignity in wickedness, whether in purple or rags; and hell is a democracy of devils, where all are equals.
Somehow our devils are never quite what we expect when we meet them face to face.
Though an angel should write, still 'tis devils must print.
There are gods, but there is no God; and all gods become devils eventually.
Robert Anton Wilson
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.
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.
The holy angels live and qualify in the light, in the good quality wherein the Holy Ghost reigneth. The devils live and reign in the fierce wrathful quality, in the quality of fierceness and wrath, destruction or perdition.
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
When I was growing up, we were taught in school that North Koreans, and especially the North Korean leadership, were all devils.
Most coaches would consider leading a team to an Olympic gold medal a capper for a pretty good year. The same goes for winning an NCAA national championship. Or a FIBA world championship.

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.
I cannot help thinking that the menace of Hell makes as many devils as the severe penal codes of inhuman humanity make villains.
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.
There is perhaps not an enlightened Christian in America who, notwithstanding he may believe that, at the time of Jesus, men were possessed of devils, believes that they ever have been in any other instance, either before or since.
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.
