“I cut my bow from the wood of this tree of evil. Of this tree of good, I want a kiss from your lips.”

 

Bruce Springsteen

“I got involved in improv comedy. It settled me down when I was getting wild. I was sort of an evil teenager smashing up my cars and drinking and driving, let’s just say, a lot.”

 

Bruce McCulloch

“Don’t be forecasting evil unless it is what you can guard against. Anxiety is good for nothing if we can’t turn it into a defense.”

 

Bruce Lee

“Men see things late, and it may be that at times an evil fate drives them on.”

 

Bruce Catton

“I’m not really that sick of Evil Dead. I can trace all roots back to The Evil Dead movies, so I have nothing against them. It’s just that I’ve done more non-Evil Dead stuff; it’s not the only thing I’ve done. There are some actors who have done a cult movie and they are forever going to be the Policeman #2 in Plan 9 From Outer Space.”

 

Bruce Campbell

“We cheerfully assume that in some mystic way love conquers all, that good outweighs evil in the just balances of the universe and at the 11th hour something gloriously triumphant will prevent the worst before it happens.”

Brooks Atkinson

“The evil that men do lives on the front pages of greedy newspapers, but the good is oft interred apathetically inside.”

Brooks Atkinson

“The trouble with New Age music is that there’s no evil in it.”

 

Brian Eno

“She sits before me, sullen but hopeful, characterless, about to dissolve into tears. I squeeze her hand back, moved, no, touched by her ignorance of evil. She has one more test to pass. Do you own a briefcase?” I ask her, swallowing.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“There are no more barriers to cross. All I have in common with the uncontrollable and the insane, the vicious and the evil, all the mayhem I have caused and my utter indifference toward it I have now surpassed. My pain is constant and sharp and I do not hope for a better world for anyone, in fact I want my pain to be inflicted on others. I want no one to escape, but even after admitting this there is no catharsis, my punishment continues to elude me and I gain no deeper knowledge of myself; no new knowledge can be extracted from my telling. This confession has meant nothing.”

Bret Easton Ellis

“Is evil something you are? Or is it something you do?”

Bret Easton Ellis

“My question is, do you believe in an evil possessed of its own purity? or does every act intend some good?”

Brent Weeks

“Evil is simple and empty. Evil has no mysterious depths. We stare into a dark hole and fill it with our fears, but it is only a hole.”

Brent Weeks

“To affirm a person is to see the good in them that they cannot see in themselves and to repeat it in spite of appearances to the contrary. Please, this is not some Pollyanna optimism that is blind to the reality of evil, but rather like a fine radar system that is tuned in to the true, the good, and the beautiful.”

Brennan Manning

“Whatever we have done in the past, be it good or evil, great or small, is irrelevant to our stance before God today. It is only NOW that we are in the presence of God.”

Brennan Manning

“Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death will be part of your journey, but the Kingdom of God will conquer all these horrors. No evil can resist grace forever.”

Brennan Manning

“There’s a difference between people who do hurtful things because they’re evil and people who do bad things because of their circumstances.”

 

Bree Despain

“Honestly, for an evil god of darkness, he certainly can be dull.”

Brandon Sanderson

“God is the creator of all things, right? He is the force that dictates the laws of the universe, and is therefore the ultimate source of ethics. He is absolute morality… We claim to be doing good. But the Lord Ruler – as God – defines what is good. So by opposing him we’re actually evil. But since he’s doing the wrong thing, does evil actually count as good in this case?”

Brandon Sanderson

“So, there I was, tied to an altar made from outdated encyclopedias, about to get sacrificed to the dark powers by a cult of evil Librarians.”

Brandon Sanderson
