Criss Jami
“When good people consider you the bad guy, you develop a heart to help the bad ones. You actually understand them.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

Martin Luther King Jr.
“It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and the violent actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, "Wait on time.”
Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Enid Blyton
“The point is not that I don't recognise bad people when I see them — I grant you I may quite well be taken in by them — the point is that I know a good person when I see one.”
Enid Blyton, The Rubadub Mystery

Criss Jami
“When it comes to judging individuals, I do not like remarks such as 'too good to be true.' They speak as though one is rewarding the nature of evil. Yet, ironically, we still wonder where all the good people have gone.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

“A truly good person will speak truth, act with truth, and stand for Truth. A truly good person is not afraid to think from their heart; therefore, allowing nonconformist decisions, viewpoints, and perspectives to lead their life. By following their heart, they stand with their conscience, and only with God.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Orson Scott Card
“So from then on, he looked at all his choices and said, What would a good person do, and then did it. But he has now learned something very important about human nature. If you spend your whole life pretending to be good, then you are indistinguishable from a good person. Relentless hypocrisy eventually becomes the truth.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender in Exile

C. JoyBell C.
“What kind of a world do we live in, when the good are taken advantage of by the bad, while the bad have platforms to talk about good things. Bad people are never bad in their own eyes, while good people are never good enough in their own eyes. This is the kind of world that we live in.”
C. JoyBell C.

“All that is necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.”
Carlton Smith, Hunting Evil

C. JoyBell C.
“Just because a person is attractive/beautiful, this does not mean it is okay to villainize them. We always say that we cannot judge a person from the outside (doesn't matter if they have a handicap, are ugly, have a deformity, etc.). But this must go both ways. It also does not matter if someone is beautiful, attractive and happy. That also does not make it okay to judge them, to villainize them. There is a double standard when it comes to whom people choose to be good to, and this double standard is wrong. The outward appearance, both the grotesque and the beautiful, must not be basis for kindness and for cruelty.”
C. JoyBell C.

Matt Abrams
“We’re always taught that bad things happen to bad people and we believe that we’re somehow above experiencing a tragedy, but we learned that’s all bullshit.”
Matt Abrams, She's Toxic

Israelmore Ayivor
“Share them with only people who can help you with information and support. When you meet negative people, zip your mouth.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

C. JoyBell C.
“The goodness of a person is normally judged based upon how they act towards those whom they consider to be less fortunate than themselves. This has become the standard for measuring the goodness of a person. But this is erroneous. It is in fact very easy to be good to those whom you consider to be less fortunate than yourself. You know what's difficult? Being good to those you envy! That is what's difficult to do! People believe themselves to practice equality because they are good to those who are lesser than they are, but this is not equality if they do not show the same amount of goodness to the people who happen to be more than they are. I always look at how a person treats those who are more than they are, and that is how I determine the goodness in a person. Because the other option is just too easy. The other option comes with all benefit and no loss.”
C. JoyBell C.

“Whilst some people inspire, others conspire!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“There’s no such thing as a good or bad person: there are just people who have each been or seem to have been good or bad to you, someone, or some people, thus far.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Steve Goodier
“Unexpected and pleasant surprises occur every day...random kindnesses from a stranger; would-be tragic accidents narrowly avoided; sicknesses healed.... We will notice if we look. We will see good sprinkled liberally over every day if we are open.”
Steve Goodier

Amit Kalantri
“The wrong man is not always wrong because of his wrong actions, often he is wrong because of no actions.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

Terry Pratchett
“You see, the only thing the good people are good at is overthrowing the bad people. And you're good at that, I'll grant you. But the trouble is it's the only thing you're good at. One day it's the ringing of the bells and the casting down of the evil tyrant, and the next it's everyone sitting around complaining that ever since the tyrant was overthrown no one's been taking out the trash. Because the bad people know how to plan. It's part of the specification, you might say. Every evil tyrant has a plan to rule the world. The good people don't seem to have the knack.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

C. JoyBell C.
“I am not afraid of people who say all the wrong things that make others gasp in disbelief. I am afraid of the people who say all the right things that make others bow in admiration. It is incredibly easy to say all the right things. We all know exactly what the majority of people want to believe and want to hear. All we have to do is give them what they want, they will bow before us. Anybody can do that. I am more afraid of people who would like to persuade me into admiration, than of people who are simply being people; sinning openly and talking like drunken thieves. That's who they are on the outside, it's also who they are on the inside.”
C. JoyBell C.

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Most good people are not good people every day all day long.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Millions of business people are each constantly forced to choose between their desire to not be a bad person and their desire to be a good business person, that is to say, to make as much money as they possibly can by maximizing their revenue while minimizing the cost of producing whatever it is that they sell.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

C. JoyBell C.
“Lots of people use good character and moral standing as a brand name. They know it's what people like, they want people to like them, so they wear it as one would wear a quality brand shirt. Putting it on in the morning and taking it off at the end of the day. Saying all the things they know people want to hear. If they were the very last person on Earth, there would be no reason for them to be of good character, because nobody would see it.”
C. JoyBell C.

Israelmore Ayivor
“Good people who are always silent for bad people to gain freedom and do their worsts are the most dangerous wastes the world ever has.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Leaders' Frontpage: Leadership Insights from 21 Martin Luther King Jr. Thoughts

“But I know something else, too: bad people are rare.
Good people are everywhere”
Jeff Bauman, Stronger

“We don’t widely accept the idea that bad things happen for uncontrollable reasons because of fear. How could that be? If that is true, we can’t make sense of it with our cognitive brains. And that is scary. If that is true, there is no way for us to control those things while in human form. And that is scary. So we search for meaning, a less scary understanding. And we usually end up assuming the victim is to blame.”
Elisabeth Corey

R.J. Palacio
“... there are more good people on this earth than bad people, and the good people watch out for each other and take care of each other. (Isabel Pullman)”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

Mehmet Murat ildan
“To know people really, you must catch them in their very unhappy times! If they treat you well, then you can be sure that they are good people!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

“In a magnet, the two different poles form an attraction, and the ones that are alike repel each other. I wonder if that is the same in life.
Good people attracting bad people, and repelling good people.
It's food for thought.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“The sweetest people have endured the greatest pain, which made them so lovable”
Luffina Lourduraj
