“I can't decide whether I'm a good girl wrapped up in a bad girl, or if I'm a bad girl wrapped up in a good girl. And that's how I know I'm a woman!”
C. JoyBell C.

Ernest Hemingway
“By then I knew that everything good and bad left an emptiness when it stopped. But if it was bad, the emptiness filled up by itself. If it was good you could only fill it by finding something better.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Kohta Hirano
“Man cries, his tears dry up and run out. So he becomes a devil, reduced to a monster.”
Kohta Hirano

Neil Gaiman
“There was only one guy in the whole Bible Jesus ever personally promised a place with him in Paradise. Not Peter, not Paul, not any of those guys. He was a convicted thief, being executed. So don't knock the guys on death row. Maybe they know something you don't.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods

“Regardless of your chosen faith, at the end of your life's journey, your heart will be measured in two ways. One, the weight of your conscience must far outweigh the weight of a feather. Two, any impurities in your heart must weigh no more than one feather. The purer your heart, the lighter your spirit will be. The lighter your spirit, the closer to light it will float. The closer to light it is permitted to go, the higher it will float. The higher it floats, the closer to God you will be. Heaven has seven layers. The vibrations of your good deeds, which will be reflected by the weight of your conscience and the purity of your heart, will determine the layer in which your soul will reside. Your goal is to make your heart as light as a feather. The heavier the heart, the more chained to this hell it will remain.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Let us dedicate this new era to mothers around the world, and also to the mother of all mothers -- Mother Earth. It is up to us to keep building bridges to bring the world closer together, and not destroy them to divide us further apart. We can pave new roads towards peace simply by understanding other cultures. This can be achieved through traveling, learning other languages, and interacting with others from outside our borders. Only then will one truly discover how we are more alike than different. Never allow language or cultural traditions to come between brothers and sisters. The same way one brother may not like his sister's choice of fashion or hairstyle, he will never hate her for her personal style or music preference. If you judge a man, judge only his heart. And if you should do so, make sure you use the truth in your conscience when weighing one's character. Do not measure anybody strictly based on the bad you see in them and ignore all the good.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

E. Lockhart
“..we'll deal with it, because the good outweighs the bad.”
E. Lockhart, The Treasure Map of Boys: Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon—and me, Ruby Oliver

Soheir Khashoggi
“Was it always to be like this? she wondered. A moment of joy followed by a new sorrow?”
Soheir Khashoggi, Nadia's Song

“Friends can become enemies, and enemies can become friends. Ego and pride can turn what is good into bad, and kind words can turn what is bad into something good.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Rick Yancey
“You can love the good in us and hate the bad but the bad is in us too. Without it we wouldn't be us.”
Rick Yancey, The Last Star

“To know the good from the bad, study a man or woman's history of actions, not their record of intentions.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The purer your heart, the lighter your spirit will be. The lighter your spirit, the closer to light it will float. The closer to light it is permitted to go, the higher it will float. The higher it floats, the closer to God you will be. Heaven has seven layers. The vibrations of your good deeds, which will be reflected by the weight of your conscience and the purity of your heart, will determine the layer in which your soul will reside. Your goal is to make your heart as light as a feather. The heavier the heart, the more chained to this hell it will remain.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“The truth is, there is good and bad in everybody, in every nation, in every race, and in every religion. To hear someone say that all the people that belong to a certain country, race, or religion are bad — is extremely untruthful and makes the person making the statement lose credibility right away. We are all flawed and even nature is flawed. Nobody is perfect, and no country, race or religion is perfect. Duality and polarity are imprinted in everything in nature — in all humans, and even within ourselves. For example, there are those who are ignorant, and those who are wise.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Stan Lee
“Good" and "Bad" may be alien concepts to him, Ben.”
Stan Lee

Anthony Burgess
“It may not be nice to be good, 6655321. It may be horrible to be good. And when I say that to you I realize how self-contradictory that sounds. I know I shall have many sleepless nights about this. What does God want? Does God want goodness or the choice of goodness? Is a man who chooses the bad perhaps in some way better than a man who has the good imposed upon him?”
Anthony Burgess, A Clockwork Orange

“Most people are not so stupid to be not able to differentiate eventually between the right and the wrong individual , but it is only the foolish person who continues to misguide oneself solely as if s/he has not been caught as who s/he is as true character.”
Anuj Somany

Pat Conroy
“Few people understood the exceptional role the civil rights movement had on the white boys and girls of the South. Bill Clinton would never have become who he was without the shining example of Martin Luther King. The same is true of Jimmy Carter and Fritz Hollings and Richard and Joe Riley. Imagine this: you’re a little white kid and you watch firehoses turned on people who don’t seem to be hurting anyone, and fierce dogs being tuned on young men who carry signs about freedom. We white kids grew up watching movies and TV and guess what we had learned to do? We had learned to tell the good guys from the bad guys.”
Pat Conroy, A Lowcountry Heart: Reflections on a Writing Life

Joyce Rachelle
“It's not about the extent to which something happened or did not happen; it's whether we choose to confront evil and call it what it is, or simply let it pass because it 'wasn't enough of a big deal'.”
Joyce Rachelle

C. JoyBell C.
“There is no worse discriminator than envy. No worse traitor than envy. Even those who are seemingly righteous, are brought down low by their envy. A true man will be known by his absence of envy. An evil man will be known by the presence of envy within him.”
C. JoyBell C.

“When people see own advantage with a person who has a lot of money, they will say generally that he has a good attitude, but if not seeing own benefits then most of them are most likely to say he has an attitude that is a bad one.”
Anuj Somany

Hilari Bell
“All causes are good,' Yallin told her calmly. 'And those exact same causes are all bad, depending on which side a body's on. Regent Pettibone and his followers certainly thought your mother's cause was a bad one. To my mind, causes aren't about good or bad, in the end. They're about power. That's what makes them so dangerous.”
Hilari Bell, The Sword of Waters

Mehmet Murat ildan
“There are billions of different faces in the world; but there are only two different characters: Good and bad! And here is a vital mission for the world: To convert the bad into the good!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“If we believe that god is the creator of evil, maybe there is evil also in heaven, if that is the case, we are not out of the woods yet”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, Pearls Of Eternity

Giselle Simlett
“No. You see, the night works differently here than in the human realm,’ he continues. ‘Duwyn is a world of balance. Good and bad, light and dark – both must exist to keep the world in harmony.’
Oh God, he’s going to give me a Pocahontas speech.”
Giselle Simlett, Girl of Myth and Legend

C. JoyBell C.
“What is truth" I was asked. "Truth is neither good nor bad. Neither evil nor pure. It just is." That's what I told her. Because through our convictions of good and bad, of evil and pure, we taint the truth with our own filters and our own desires. Truth is no respecter of what that man over there thinks is good or of what that woman over there thinks is evil. Truth remains as Truth, regardless of what you think about it.”
C. JoyBell C.

“A negative person vociferously retaliates to defend their own vested interest only whereas a positive person vigorously substantiate own valid points to show the bright aspect, but surprisingly often both appears to be arguing with others only and they can be differentiated in the said respect.”
Anuj Somany

“If only we can agree that us mortal human beings only have relevance when there are opposing forces and ideas then we would not be so consumed with tribalism. It is our focus on what others do or say that gives them meaning and relevance. Light that points to the clear sky is consumed by darkness.. In the absence of a reflective object light has no relevance.. Friction/resistance is necessary for forward movement.”
Lennox D.Lampkin

Abhijit Naskar
“Nature of Human is neither good nor bad, it is simply a fusion of primitive instinctual urges and modern humane conscience.”
Abhijit Naskar
