    Good and Evil quotes by:    

The word "good" has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

Defeat in doing right is nevertheless victory.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

Do right, and God's recompense to you will be the power of doing more right.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

Evil is but the shadow, that, in this world, always accompanies good. You may have a world without shadow, but it will be a world without light - a mere dim, twilight world. If you would deepen the intensity of the light, you must be content to bring into deeper blackness and more distinct and definite outline, the shade that accompanies it.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

The truest definition of evil is that which represents it as something contrary to nature. Evil is evil because it is unnatural. A vine which should bear olive-berries - an eye to which blue seems yellow, would be diseased. An unnatural mother, an unnatural son, an unnatural act, are the strongest terms of condemnation.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

It is a law of our humanity, that man must know good through evil. No great principle ever triumphed but through much evil. No man ever progressed to greatness and goodness but through great mistakes.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

Beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and devil are fighting there, and the battlefield is the heart of man.

    Author: Fyodor Dostoevsky

How goodness heightens beauty!

    Author: Hannah More

If the one be good, the other must be evil. The only way to justify the stage, as it is, as it has ever been, as it is ever likely to be, is to condemn the Bible - the same individual cannot defend both.

    Author: Hannah More

In contrast to the believer, the ungodly are not like trees but are like chaff. They have no roots, produce no fruit and are blown about.

    Author: Warren Wiersbe

Those who commit injustice bear the greatest burden.

    Author: Hosea Ballou

Right intention is to the actions of a man what the soul is to the body, or the root to the tree.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor
