“I know [Umbridge] by reputation and I’m sure she’s no Death Eater-” “She’s foul enough to be one…” “Yes, but the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Hai ! Hai ! has not suffered the hawk to grow big.

N.B. — ” Hai,” is an interjection used in frightening off birds of prey. The proverb means, if the hawk had been allowed to eat his fill of fowl and chicken, he would have become stronger and more dangerous: if evil were left unrestrained we should soon be over- powered by it.

“Whether you sniff it smoke it eat it or shove it up your ass the result is the same: addiction.” ― William S. Burroughs

Ah, devil ether. It makes you behave like the village drunkard in some early Irish novel. Total loss of all basic motor function. Blurred vision, no balance, numb tongue. The mind recoils in horror, unable to communicate with the spinal column. Which is interesting because you can actually watch yourself behaving in this terrible way, but you can’t control it.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; as a wild beast can harm your body, but an evil friend can wound your soul. – See more at:


It is a great evil to look upon mankind with too clear vision. You seem to be living among wild beasts, and you become a wild beast yourself.

Suddenness aggravates evil


My help is in the mountain

That I take away with me.

Earth cure me. Earth receive my woe.

Rock strengthen me. Rock receive my weakness.

Rain wash my suddenness away.

Rain receive my doubt.

Sun make sweet my song.

Sun receive the anger from my heart.

The seduction of evil is precisely in that it involves us in trying to get rid of it.

Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
    and to insight, “You are my relative.”
 They will keep you from the adulterous woman,
    from the wayward woman with her seductive words.

Proverbs 7

“It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”

― Noël Coward, Blithe Spirit

Unfortunately, most people with good intentions are trying to deny or eliminate what is already manifest. And many spiritual revivals are a deeper denial of the facts of our vibration level. What can we do about evil? A great deal, if our heads are clear. My catch-all phrase is: “I wouldn’t deny that experience to the One Mind.”

Once you have cleared your head on the matter, then do whatever feels right to you. Evil occurs as a secondary reality, after you have withdrawn to a low vibration level. The seduction of evil is precisely in that it involves us in trying to get rid of it.

– Thaddeus Golas in “The Lazy Man’s Guide to Enlightenment”

I consider in my own mind whether thou art a spirit, sometimes, or sometimes an evil imp,” said the lama, smiling slowly.

― Rudyard Kipling, Kim

I drank at every vine, the last was like the first. I came upon no wine so wonderful as thirst.

~Edna St. Vincent Millay

“Stick ’em wiv arrers’. Stick ’em with knives. ‘an swords, and spears. Stick ’em quick and stick ’em where it ‘urts. But most of all, stick ’em when they’s looking in the other way.”

Gorduz Backstabber, Hobgoblin Chieftain

“There was a goblin, or a trickster or a warrior. A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop it or hold it or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world…”

― Steve Moffat

Like Robin Hood….Not real, but true. ― Janette Rallison


“This wavering paradox is a pillar of the outlaw stance. A man who has blown all his options can’t afford the luxury of changing his ways. He has to capitalize on whatever he has left, and he can’t afford to admit-no matter how often he’s reminded of it-that every day of his life takes him farther down a blind alley.”

― Hunter S. Thompson, Hell’s Angels

No evil dooms us hopelessly except the evil we love, and desire to continue in, and make no effort to escape from.

― George Eliot, Daniel Deronda


Uphill in Melbourne on a beautiful day
a woman is walking ahead of her hair.
Like teak oiled soft to fracture and sway
it hung to her heels and seconded her
as a pencilled retinue, an unscrolling title
to ploughland, edged with ripe rows of dress,
a sheathed wing that couldn’t fly her at all,
only itself, loosely, and her spirits.
                                   A largesse
of life and self, brushed all calm and out,
its abstracted attempts on her mouth weren’t seen,
not its showering, its tenting.  Just the detail
that swam in its flow-lines, glossing about—
as she paced on, comet-like, face to the sun.

Subhuman Redneck Poems, 1996


Like it or not, we either add to the darkness of indifference and out-and-out evil which surrounds us or we light a candle to see by.

― Madeleine L’Engle


“People who claim that they’re evil are usually no worse than the rest of us… It’s people who claim that they’re good, or any way better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.”

Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

Oriental — Unmitigated evil is as rare As wings upon a cat, or flowers of air, As rabbits’ horns, or ropes of tortoise hair.
