35 Quotes On Evil By Famous People

Good and evil are not independent but depended on each other. As soon as a man defined good, evil is habitually defined being the opposite of good. If we define love as good, hatred is automatically known as evil. If life is good, then death is evil. The list is endless as everything in this world now stands divided into either good or evil. Nothing exists in this world that does not fall into either of the two categories. Every person who tries to make his world filled only with goodness cannot survive just like no atom can survive if all electrons are removed from its orbit. These quotes on evil will make you understand the meaning of evil better.

Darkness indicates evil and light indicates well. Darkness is a result of something blocking the light. The world is not kept in long-lasting darkness; everyday light repels the darkness and brings life to all it touches. When you fully understand this truth you will be in a position to master your own circumstances and turn evil into good.
