Idowu Koyenikan
“There is no denying that there is evil in this world but the light will always conquer the darkness.”
Idowu Koyenikan, Wealth for All: Living a Life of Success at the Edge of Your Ability

Vincent van Gogh
“Many people seem to think it foolish, even superstitious, to believe that the world could still change for the better. And it is true that in winter it is sometimes so bitingly cold that one is tempted to say, ‘What do I care if there is a summer; its warmth is no help to me now.’ Yes, evil often seems to surpass good. But then, in spite of us, and without our permission, there comes at last an end to the bitter frosts. One morning the wind turns, and there is a thaw. And so I must still have hope.”
Vincent van Gogh

Billie-Jo Williams
“Hurricanes couldn’t remove you from my mind. You’re my world and I’m incapable of not loving you.”
Billie-Jo Williams

John Connolly
“No matter how hard Evil tries, it can never quite match up to the power of Good, because Evil is ultimately self-destructive. Evil may set out to corrupt others, but in the process corrupts itself.”
John Connolly, The Infernals

Chögyam Trungpa
“Are the great spiritual teachings really advocating that we fight evil because we are on the side of light, the side of peace? Are they telling us to fight against that other 'undesirable' side, the bad and the black. That is a big question. If there is wisdom in the sacred teachings, there should not be any war. As long as a person is involved with warfare, trying to defend or attack, then his action is not sacred; it is mundane, dualistic, a battlefield situation.”
Chögyam Trungpa, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism

Carl Novakovich
“In twenty-four hours we have gone through more than anyone else has - I'm sure of it. But does that bind two people? Or does that just make us survivors?”
Carl Novakovich, The Watchers: The Tomb

Carl Novakovich
“Steven looked at Walter with fear in his eyes and tried to speak, but nothing came out. It was as if the breath was pulled from his lungs all within an instant.”
Carl Novakovich, The Watchers: The Tomb

John Patrick Shanley
“If I could, Sister James, I would certainly choose to live in innocence. But innocence can only be wisdom in a world without evil. Situations arise and we are confronted with wrongdoing and the need to act.”
John Patrick Shanley, Doubt, a Parable

“Good loses. Good always loses because good has to play by the rules. Evil doesn't.”
Henry Mills 'Once Upon a Time'

“The things I’ve seen," he continues easily, "have shown me that the only constant is change. Too much power in one place is a fool’s errand. Eventually, and inevitably, no matter how good the intentions, or how long the life, power always wins out, and everyone suffers for it. The only true path of rational existence is balance; a constant re-assessment of the burdens of power, if you will.”
Bill Blais, No Good Deed

Bangambiki Habyarimana
“A good man? A man who successfully conceals his evil actions”
Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

Winston Churchill
“This is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small,
large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force;
never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston Churchill

Vernor Vinge
“All evil and good is petty before Nature. Personally, we take comfort from this, that there is a universe to admire that cannot be twisted to villainy or good, but which simply is.”
Vernor Vinge, A Fire Upon the Deep

“He was aware that darkness could take root in pristine gardens, and even good men could fall to shadow.”
Ella Rose Carlos, A Long Lost Fantasy

Marie Montine
“Dear, my life is just as confined as yours, but I am all right with it. Who knows what’s out there. We are all meant for different things. But if something piques your interest, then perhaps you are one of those to find out what can still your heart.”
Marie Montine, Mourning Grey: Part One: The Guardians Of The Temple Saga

Marie Montine

Marie Montine, Mourning Grey: Part Two

Marie Montine
“Raesha was of great wonder and irony; she did not need the Dark Guardian’s help to become like us. She became worse than us. I am certain that somehow the Guardian knew of this, and that was why he did not change her in the first place; why diminish something that was already so potentially dangerous; what is worse than someone being changed to darkness? Someone who on their own free will becomes darkness.”
Marie Montine, Mourning Grey: Part Three The Guardians Of The Temple Saga

Michael Bassey Johnson
“There are two categories of people on earth:
1. Human beings.
2. HuMANE beings.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Marie Montine
“But I’m not going to as long as I can help it, as long I’m breathing I will not stop the breath of another, Kins or humans or whoever. Words don't make us do what we’re supposed to do. My actions are my own, I don’t care who wrote them. So I’m going along with this journey to find my own path.”
Marie Montine, Mourning Grey: Part Two

Arti Manani
“We were always meant to live in darkness, even with the light. Five billion years from now the sun will stop shining and the darkness will win. It's supposed to win. It's inevitable. Darkness will come and the world will become a cold and sinister place to live in, if it isn't already.”
Arti Manani

Frank Sonnenberg

Frank Sonnenberg, Listen to Your Conscience: That's Why You Have One

Michael Bassey Johnson
“You are the light of the world, and it is your duty to save the darkness.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

“Quiz Show is an understated masterpiece that forces us to ask ourselves how we would act under similar circumstances. Quiz Show delves into the currents of dissolving morality, self-deception, good vs. evil, and anti-Semitism. It begs a debate on what is right and what is wrong.”
Scott Cooper Florida

Anthon St. Maarten
“In our co-created world we must all pick a side each day between good and evil. Looking the other way will not exempt us from our spiritual accountability.”
Anthon St. Maarten

Laelia Starla
“Today also represents the struggle between light and dark within all of us…
It is crucial that I remind you all of this and the consequences of slipping into the left-hand path.”
Laelia Starla, Winter's Maiden 1

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“A conscience is a self-reproaching program that is installed in us, not by nature, but by our culture.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Nicholas Lemann
“Political leadership is about achieving tangible good results that make a difference in people’s lives, not offering a message of unity, respect, and honor (though that’s nice, too). It’s not useful to understand world affairs in the broadest possible terms, as a struggle between good and evil.”
Nicholas Lemann
