A Quote by Janet Finch on good, evil, self motivated, artist, thinker, original mind, and destiny

The question of good and evil will always be one of philosophy's most intriguing problems, up there with the problem of existence itself...If evil means to be self motivated, to be the center of one's own universe, to live on one's own terms, then every artist, every thinker, every original mind, is evil. Because we dare to look through our own eyes rather than mouth cliches lent us from the so-called Fathers. To dare to see is to steal fire from the Gods.

This is mankind's destiny, the engine with fuels us as a race.

A Quote by unknown on god, good, happiness, heart, life, love, men, mind, people, work, world, and absolute truth

Ever considered that the words "all truth is relative" and "there is no such thing as absolute truth" cannot be true: they would be absolute truths themselves.

Ever considered how we passionaltely believe in tolerance... until someone else's moral convictions infringe on our own (at which point we have no tolerance for them)?

A Quote by Alexander Solzhenitsyen on evil, good, heart, human, and human being

If only it were all so simple, if only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them.  But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being, and who is willing to destroy a piece of their own heart?

A Quote by unknown on child, taught, happy, love, fear, hatred, prejudice, taught, condition, world, good, and teachers

A child does not have to be taught how to be happy or the ways of love.  It is fear, hatred, and prejudice that have to be taught.  And from the condition of the world we can see that unfortunately there are some very good teachers.
