Let a man avoid evil deeds as a man who loves life avoids poison.
      - Buddha (Gautama Buddha)

I have wrought great use out of evil tools.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton,
        Richelieu (act III, sc. 1, l. 49)

It is necessary only for the good man to do nothing for evil to triumph.
      - attributed to Edmund Burke,
        but not found in his writings

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
      - attributed to Edmund Burke

States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any of these cases, the price of indifference would be catastrophic.
      - George Walker Bush,
        in his State of the Union address

None are all evil.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.
      - Albert Camus

Evil and good are everywhere, like shadow and substance; inseparable (for men) yet not hostile, only opposed.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Evil, once manfully fronted, ceases to be evil; there is generous battle-hope in place of dead, passive misery; the evil itself has become a kind of good.
      - Thomas Carlyle

In the huge mass of evil as it rolls and swells, there is ever some good working toward deliverance and triumph.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Not one false man but doth uncountable evil.
      - Thomas Carlyle

If there is any person to whom you feel a dislike, that is the person of whom you ought never to speak.
      - Richard Cecil

Evil comes not amiss if it comes alone.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

Inasmuch as ill-deeds spring up as a spontaneous crop, they are easy to learn.
  [Sp., Como el hacer mal viene de natural cosecha, facilmente se aprende el hacerle.]
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Coloquio de los Perros

By the very constitution of our nature moral evil is its own curse.
      - Thomas Chalmers

Even in evil, that dark cloud which hangs over the creation, we discern rays of light and hope, and gradually come to see in suffering and temptation proofs and instruments of the sublimest purposes of wisdom and love.
      - William Ellery Channing

All evil, in fact the very existence of evil, is inexplicable until we refer to the paternity of God. It hangs a huge blot in the universe until the orb of divine love rises behind it. In that apposition we detect its meaning. It appears to us but a finite shadow as it passes across the disk of infinite light.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

In the history of man it has been very generally the case that when evils have grown insufferable they have touched the point of cure.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

An evil at its birth is easily crushed, but it grows and strengthens by endurance.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

Of evils one should choose the least.
  [Lat., Ex malis eligere minima oportere.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Officiis (bk. III, 1)

Every evil in the bud is easily crushed; as it grows older, it becomes stronger.
  [Lat., Omne malum nascens facile opprimitur; inveteratum fit pleurumque robustius.]
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Philippicoe (V, 11)

The doing an evil to avoid an evil cannot be good.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

This is the curse of every evil deed, that, propagating still, it brings forth evil.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Evils in the journey of life are like the hills which I alarm travelers which alarm travelers upon their road; they both appear great at a distance, but when we approach them we find that they are far less insurmountable than we had conceived.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

No propagation or multiplication is more rapid that that of evil, unless it be checked; no growth more certain.
      - Charles Caleb Colton
