Friday Philosophy…The Face of Evil

It’s nearly October. It’s time to get scarier over here. Plus, someone told me that Mercury is in retrograde – so communication gets a little funky. πŸ™‚

“It is a man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lures him to evil ways.” ~ Buddha

“He that is kind is free, though he is a slave. He that is evil is a slave, though he be a king.” ~ St. Augustine

“Is it better to out-monster the monster, or to be quietly devoured?” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche (Who else?)

β€œAnd this is the forbidden truth, the unspeakable taboo – that evil is not always repellent but frequently attractive; that it has the power to make of us not simply victims, as nature and accident do, but active accomplices.” ~ Joyce Carol Oates

“Evil, by its very nature, is self-defeating. In the dark days this truth is sometimes all that good men have to cling to.” ~ Sydney Harris

Keep the evil from your doorstep…Blessings to you all.

And, remember, Never give up! “If you’re going through Hell, keep going.” ~ Winston Churchill
