“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!”

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

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

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

“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

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

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

Jon Kabat-Zinn
“YOU HAVE TO BE STRONG ENOUGH TO BE WEAK

Allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling. Notice any labels you attach to crying or feeling vulnerable. Let go of the labels. Just feel what you are feeling, all the while cultivating moment-to-moment awareness, riding the waves of “up” and “down,” “good” and “bad,” “weak” and “strong,” until you see that they are all inadequate to fully describe your experience. Be with the experience itself. Trust in your deepest strength of all: to be present, to be wakeful.”
Jon Kabat-Zinn, Wherever You Go, There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life

Katie McGarry
“I'm right and wrong, moral and immoral, good and bad, a hero and a villain, and I've been just as capable of truth as I have been lies.”
Katie McGarry, Chasing Impossible

“Maybe I was wrong. Maybe there really is some goodness here in our world. But if goodness existed, that must mean that darkness existed as well.”
Erica Sehyun Song

Haroutioun Bochnakian
“Before eating from the tree of knowledge, Adam and Eve had no notion of Good and evil.

They were kicked out of paradise, because the supposed Creator was unable to reason that giving someone free will to choose between two things while having no notion of either, would be the Himalaya of nonsense.”
Haroutioun Bochnakian, The Human Consensus and The Ultimate Project Of Humanity

Katherine Applegate
“She is like a newborn sun, fresh with promise, the just beginning moments before the day fills like a bucket with good and bad, sweat and longing.”
Katherine Applegate, Home of the Brave

Haroutioun Bochnakian
“What we call “Higher” behavior is elaborated by our abstract mind to ensure survival by an efficient cohesion of our clan.
What we call “lower” behavior is to ensure survival at the expense of a rival, or to prevent the survival of a rival to be at our expense.
So,
Be they our “higher” and “lower” behavior/selves, our humanity and inhumanity, our “Divine” and “diabolic” trends, or any aspect of our Human Nature,
All are created by our abstract mind to ensure survival in an environment of scarcity.

But of course you can always choose to adopt “revelations” which present human nature as:
A messed up image of a messed up supernatural coexistence between two messed up opposite supernatural entities with a messed up relation.

Ultimately, we all think we choose by what we think we know.”
Haroutioun Bochnakian, The Human Consensus and The Ultimate Project Of Humanity

“The entire journey of life is lived with energy and we use energy in all that we do from dawn to dusk! When your energy goes down, something goes down. We can do anything with our energy but not all things deserve our true energy! We have, all of us, a choice to choose where our energy must go when day breaks. We can choose to allow anything at all take our energy, but we must not forget that where our energy goes, from there comes something to us; something good or something bad, something mediocre or something noble, something that will disturb us or something that will enhance our joy, latently or visibly, now or tomorrow! We must always remember each day that the same energy that is exerted on wrong things to attract and produce wrong things can be exerted on good things to produce good and great things!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“The angel in me loves the devil in me.”
Marty Rubin

Sally Rooney
“She tries to be a good person. But deep down she knows she is a bad person, corrupted, wrong, and all her efforts to be right, to have the right opinions, to say the right things, these efforts only disguise what is buried inside her, the evil part of herself.”
Sally Rooney, Normal People

“Listen, listen. I can explain. There's a bad Ted underneath the good Ted, yes, but then, under that, there's a Ted who's good for real. But no one ever sees him; his whole life, no one ever has. Underneath it all, I'm just that kid who wanted nothing more than to be loved and didn't know how to make it happen, even though I tried and tried and tried.”
Kristen Roupenian, You Know You Want This

Will Hill
“[...] nothing is ever only good and nothing is ever only bad. Everything is somewhere in the middle.”
Will Hill, After the Fire

“We were riding fast, I got lost in the thought that this couldn’t end. Good things end. Bad things we reminisce.”
Dominic Riccitello

“THE WEIGHT OF ONE FEATHER

Given.
Many fear Death
Because they already
Feel ridden with sin,
But no man
On this earth
Is filled with only
White light
Within.
Have more faith
In our Maker,
For our souls
And minds
Were created by
Him.
Just remember that,
When your deeds
Are measured
By the scale --
Your good deeds
Must outweigh
The bad,
And your heart must be
Lighter than the weight of
One feather
To win.


THE WEIGHT OF ONE FEATHER by Suzy Kassem”

“As always, the soucouyant seemed more lonely than bad. Maybe that was her trick, her ability to make it so you couldn't decide if she was a monster.”
Helen Oyeyemi, White is for Witching

“Severin can be callous in pursuit of a goal. He has an extraordinary mind, it's no exaggeration to call him a genius. However, such ability often comes at the expense of-" He hesitated, searching for the right word.
"Decency?" West suggested dryly.
Looking rueful, Devon nodded. "When dealing with Severin, one must never forget that above all, he's an opportunist. His brain is so busy trying to engineer a certain outcome that he doesn't bother to consider anyone's feelings, including his own. That being said, there have been times when I've seen Severin go to great lengths to help other people. He's not all bad." He shrugged. "It seems a pity to give up the friendship entirely.”
Lisa Kleypas, Marrying Winterborne

Marie Cardinal
“I første del af analysen havde jeg erobret min krops sundhed og frihed. Nu skulle jeg, langsomt, i gang med at opdage min person.
Det gik meget trægt i begyndelsen, for jeg var på vagt over for mig selv. Jeg frygtede at møde et menneske, hvis mangler og lyder, jeg ikke ville være i stand til at rumme. Jeg måtte foretage utallige togter ned i underbevidstheden for at blive overbevist om, at der var vildt og frit, men blottet for ondskab. Der var både godt og ondt i min bevidsthed, så var det op til mig at smede dem som det passede mig.
Behandlingen var forbi, da jeg følte mig i stand til at påtage mig ansvar for mine tanker og handlinger, hvordan de end var.”
Marie Cardinal, The Words to Say It

“for lige fra forklaringen på hallucinationen til afsløringen af voldeligheden havde jeg lært et menneske inde i mig selv at kende, som ikke var en engel. Jeg havde haft tid til at vænne mig til mit hovmod, min trang til uafhængighed og magt, til min egocentricitet. Jeg havde forstået, at disse karaktertræk lige så godt kunne være fejl som gode egenskaber, alt efter hvordan jeg styrede dem. De var som et forspand af vilde heste. Det var mig, der skulle finde ud af at køre det godt. Det skræmte mig ikke, jeg kunne føle, jeg havde hånd om dem.
I dag kom voldeligheden som en smuk og farlig gave til mig, et frygteligt våben indlagt med guld og perlemor, som jeg nu skulle håndtere med allerstørste forsigtighed. Jeg længtes efter at afprøve det. Jeg vidste, jeg kun ville benytte det til at opbygge med, ikke til at ødelægge med.
Samtidig med bevidstheden om voldeligheden dukkede også bevidstheden om min vitalitet og munterhed og gavmildhed op.
Jeg var næsten skabt.”
Marie Cardinal, The Words to Say It
