A Quote by Simone Weil on evil, imaginary, good, and reality

Imaginary evil is romantic and varied; real evil is gloomy, monotonous, barren, boring. Imaginary good is boring; real good is always new, marvelous, intoxicating.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on ignorance, self, harm, good, and prayers

We, ignorant of ourselves, beg often our own harms, which the wise powers deny us for our good; so find we profit by losing of our prayers.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by unknown on good and change

I've learned that my goal shouldn't be to affect change. It's too easy to think I've failed because rarely is the person who plants the seed of change the person to see it bloom. Instead I've decided to make my goal to affect good. Trying to affect change can feel overwhelming, but good always self-propagates and ultimately leads to the change we're usually after.

A Quote by C. S. Lewis on right, wrong, law, human nature, nature, good, evil, and humankind

Now this Law or Rule about Right and Wrong used to be called the Law of Nature.  Nowadays, when we talk of the 'laws of nature' we usually mean things like gravitation, or heredity, or the laws of chemistry.  But when the older thinkers called the Law of Right and Wrong the 'Law of Nature', they really meant the Law of Human Nature. The idea was that, just as all bodies are governed by the law of gravitation, and organisms by biological laws, so the creature called man also had his law--with this great difference, that a body could not choose whether it obeyed the law of gravitation or not, but a man could choose either to obey the Law of Human Nature or to disobey it.

C. S. Lewis

A Quote by unknown on good, patient, focus, direction, and purpose

"Don't become weary in doing good. If we are patient, we can experience the change of heart we seek. For most of us this will require only a slight change of course, sending us toward true north. The adjustments we must make are in those 'small things,' but that does not mean they are easy. Too many forces are confusing our compass. But the pull to the polar star is one we recognize. It is the direction toward home."
