Psychology Of Evil quotes by Lars Von Trier
#1. Evil gives you far more strings to pull. But I must say that I have never been interested in the psychology of evil, not in the slightest. Perhaps I'm not interested in evil, but in the dark sides of human beings. #Quote by Lars Von Trier
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Abraham H. Maslow
#2. I believe that another task which needs doing before we can have a good world is the development of a humanistic and transpersonal psychology of evil, one written out of compassion and love for human nature rather than out of disgust with it or out of hopelessness. #Quote by Abraham H. Maslow
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#3. As we have come to understand the psychology of evil, we have realized that such transformations of human character are not as rare as we would like to believe. Historical inquiry and behavioral science have demonstrated the "banality of evil"
that is, under certain conditions and social pressures, ordinary people can commit acts that would otherwise be unthinkable. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#4. For years I've been interested in a fundamental question concerning what I call the psychology of evil: Why is it that good people do evil deeds? I've been interested in that question since I was a little kid. Growing up in the ghetto in the South Bronx, I had lots of friends who I thought were good kids, but for one reason or another they ended up in serious trouble. They went to jail, they took drugs, or they did terrible things to other people. My whole upbringing was focused on trying to understand what could have made them go wrong. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Psychology Of Evil quotes by George Orwell
#5. ...the groveling on the floor and screaming for mercy, the crack of broken bones, the smashed teeth and bloody clots of hair. #Quote by George Orwell
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Philip G. Zimbardo
#6. To be a hero you have to learn to be a deviant
because you're always going against the conformity of the group. #Quote by Philip G. Zimbardo
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Saint Augustine
#7. He who commends the nature of the soul as the supreme good, and condemns the nature of the flesh as evil, at once both carnally desires the soul, and carnally flies the flesh, because he feels thus from human vanity, not from divine truth. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Alison Miller
#8. A child who is being abused on an ongoing basis needs to be able to function despite the trauma that dominates his or her daily life. That becomes the job of at least one ANP [alternate personality], whom the child creates to be unaware of the abuse and also of the multiplicity, and to "pass as normal" in the real world. The ANP is just an alter specialized for handling the adult world - in other words, the "front person" for the system. #Quote by Alison Miller
Psychology Of Evil quotes by C. G. Jung
#9. We are so full of apprehensions, fears, that we don't know exactly to what it points ... a great change of our psychoglocal attitude is imminent, that is certain ... because we need more
understanding of human nature because ... the only real danger that exists is man himself ... and we know nothing of man - his
psyche should be studied because we are the origin of all coming evil ... #Quote by C. G. Jung
Psychology Of Evil quotes by John Fowles
#10. Some people would say- you're only a drop, your word-breaking is only a drop, it wouldn't matter. But all the evil in the world's made up of little drops. It's silly talking about the unimportance of the little drops. The little drops and the ocean are the same thing. #Quote by John Fowles
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Park Dietz
#11. One of the problems with studies that examine the effects of violent imagery is that they typically use mentally healthy psychology students. If you want to do a meaningful study, show movies like Body Double and Copycat to a group of sexual psychopaths the day before you release them. #Quote by Park Dietz
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Jim Butcher
#12. Chocolate fends off all kinds of nasty stuff. And if you get hungry while warding off evil, you have a snack. It's multipurpose equipment. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Honore De Balzac
#13. Do you know, my dear fellow," Derville went on after a pause, "there are in modern society three men who can never think well of the world - the priest, the doctor, and the man of law? And they wear black robes, perhaps because they are in mourning for every virtue and every illusion. The most hapless of the three is the lawyer. When a man comes in search of the priest, he is prompted by repentance, by remorse, by beliefs which make him interesting, which elevate him and comfort the soul of the intercessor whose task will bring him a sort of gladness; he purifies, repairs and reconciles. But we lawyers, we see the same evil feelings repeated again and again, nothing can correct them; our offices are sewers which can never be cleansed. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Harry S. Truman
#14. Divine Providence has played a great part in our history. I have the feeling that God has created us and brought us to our present position of power and strength for some great purpose. It is not given to us to know fully what that purpose is, but I think we may be sure of one thing, and that is that our country is intended to do all it can, in cooperating with other nations to help created peace and preserve peace in the world. It is given to defend the spiritual values-the moral code-against the vast forces of evil that seek to destroy them. #Quote by Harry S. Truman
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Richard Feynman
#15. It doesn't seem to me that this fantastically marvelous universe, this tremendous range of time and space and different kinds of animals, and all the different planets, and all these atoms with all their motions, and so on, all this complicated thing can merely be a stage so that God can watch human beings struggle for good and evil - which is the view that religion has. The stage is too big for the drama. #Quote by Richard Feynman
Psychology Of Evil quotes by J.D. Stroube
#16. My parents had torn through my innocence and left me with a tar-like substance that was corrupting what was left of me. I could feel it at night; slithering and curling around my soul as it slowly devoured me. It was draining my energy and replacing it with an evil I was afraid to confront. #Quote by J.D. Stroube
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Corey Robin
#17. Every once in a while, however, the subordinates of this world contest their fates. They protest their conditions, write letters and petitions, join movements, and make demands. Their goals may be minimal and discrete - better safety guards on factory machines, an end to marital rape - but in voicing them, they raise the specter of a more fundamental change in power. They cease to be servants or supplicants and become agents, speaking and acting on their own behalf. More than the reforms themselves, it is this assertion of agency by the subject class - the appearance of an insistent and independent voice of demand - that vexes their superiors. Guatemala's Agrarian Reform of 1952 redistributed a million and a half acres of land to 100,000 peasant families. That was nothing, in the minds of the country's ruling classes, compared to the riot of political talk the bill seemed to unleash. Progressive reformers, Guatemala's arch-bishop complained, sent local peasants "gifted with facility with words" to the capital, where they were given opportunities "to speak in public." That was the great evil of the Agrarian Reform. #Quote by Corey Robin
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Eusebius
#18. May I be an enemy to no one and the friend of what abides eternally.
May I never quarrel with those nearest me, and be reconciled quickly if I should.
May I never plot evil against others, and if anyone plot evil against me,
may I escape unharmed and without the need to hurt anyone else.
May I love, seek and attain only what is good.
May I desire happiness for all and harbor envy for none.
May I never find joy in the misfortune of one who has wronged me.
May I never wait for the rebuke of others, but always rebuke myself until I make reparation.
May I gain no victory that harms me or my opponent.
May I reconcile friends who are mad at each other.
May I, insofar as I can, give all necessary help to my friends and to all who are in need.
May I never fail a friend in trouble.
May I be able to soften the pain of the
grief stricken and give them comforting words.
May I respect myself.
May I always maintain control of my emotions.
May I habituate myself to be gentle, and never angry with others because of circumstances.
May I never discuss the wicked or what they have done, but know good people and follow in their footsteps.
[Prayer to practice the Golden Rule] #Quote by Eusebius
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Greg Gutfeld
#19. How funny is it that so many professors labeled Tea Partiers as terrorists, while kissing the asses of real, bona fide terrorists? It's not funny, really. But it's the result of a simple equation: One is cool, and the other isn't. Own a gun and keep it by your bed in your remote farmhouse? You're a redneck. Purchase guns that end up killing a judge? Priceless. As long as you cling to cool, progressive beliefs that deem America evil, whatever you do is cool. And if you do it under a big fuzzy 'fro? Even cooler. Hell, if you 'fro is big enough, you could nuke an orphanage and still get tenure. #Quote by Greg Gutfeld
Psychology Of Evil quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#20. But this is the real objection to that torrent of modern talk about treating crime as disease, about making prison merely a hygienic environment like a hospital, of healing sin by slow scientific methods. The fallacy of the whole thing is that evil is a matter of active choice whereas disease is not. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Margaret MacMillan
#21. In a secular world, which is what most of us in Europe and North America live in, history takes on the role of showing us good and evil, virtues and vices. Religion no longer plays as important a part as it once did in setting moral standards and transmitting values ... History with a capital H is being called in to fill the void. It restores a sense not necessarily of a divine being but of something above and beyond human beings. It is our authority: it can vindicate us and judge us, and damn those who oppose us. #Quote by Margaret MacMillan
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Damian Wampler
#22. The fuel for a great fire is all round them, ready to consume the evil of Plexus; we just have to wait for the spark. #Quote by Damian Wampler
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#23. Most people seem to get bored easily when having an easy life, and need to feed on drama and conflicts to feel alive. They are like vampires and zombies, that feed on the anger of others. The flesh and blood is replaced here by life energy. Now, the main point here is that toxic women and toxic men do make us sick. And life goes nowhere around such decadent souls. Alone, we have choices. With a mentally sick person in our life, you can't make plans for the future. It's impossible to make long-term plans when teaming with people that are too obsessed with conflicts and selfish needs. And hopefully, there will come a time when such individuals are segregated from society and put in mental hospitals. Until that moment comes, we can only avoid them and label them toxic personalities. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Gary Potter
#24. When the Christian majority takes over this country, there will be no satanic churches, no more free distribution of pornography, no more talk of rights for homosexuals. After the Christian majority takes control, pluralism will be seen as immoral and evil and the state will not permit anybody the right to practice evil. #Quote by Gary Potter
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Hannah Arendt
#25. This inability to think created the possibility for many ordinary men to commit evil deeds on a gigantic scale, the like of which had never been seen before. The manifestation of the wind of thought is not knowledge but the ability to tell right from wrong, beautiful from ugly. And I hope that thinking gives people the strength to prevent catastrophes in these rare moments when the chips are down. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Stacy London
#26. Fashion is an industry to make money. It plays into human psychology. We want to belong, we want to be loved. I'm not trying to demonize the fashion industry - I love the fashion industry - but style is about taking the control out of the industry's hand and having you decide what works for you. #Quote by Stacy London
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Sylvain Reynard
#27. The universe isn't based on magic - there isn't one set of circumstances for the good and one for the evil. Everyone suffers sometime. The question is what you do with your suffering. #Quote by Sylvain Reynard
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Juvenal
#28. No one ever reached the worst of a vice at one leap. #Quote by Juvenal
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#29. What we call evil sometimes depends on point of views. The one at the receiving end calls it evil while the inflicting party considers it the best thing he can do. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#30. So I think I'd better go, said Wimsey. "I rather wish I hadn't come buttin' into this. some things may be better left alone, don't you think? My sympathies are all in the wrong place and I don't like it. I Know all about not doing evil tha good may come. I'ts doin' good that evil may come that is so embarrassin'."
"My dear boy," said the Rector, "it does not do for us to take too much thought for the morrow. It is better to follow the truth and leave the results in the hand of God. He can forsee where we cannot, because He knows all the facts. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Psychology Of Evil quotes by David Estes
#31. It's not the power of the universe rallying against him, but humans. Just men and women full of hate and evil and ignorance. Nothing more, nothing less. And humans can be defeated, no matter the odds. In the end, good has a chance to prevail if those who wield its mighty sword do not lose hope. #Quote by David Estes
Psychology Of Evil quotes by A.A. Attanasio
#32. I dream of a true husband - a good man, not a brute, nor a champion of men on the battlefield; I dream but of a gentle man, one who neither speaks too loud nor ignores evil. I pray for such a like-minded mate, who will be ever for me like harmony to music, virtue to the soul, prosperity to the state, and forethought to the universe. #Quote by A.A. Attanasio
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#33. Lady, for indeed
I loved you and I deemed you beautiful,
I cannot brook to see your beauty marred
Through evil spite: and if ye love me not,
I cannot bear to dream you so forsworn:
I had liefer ye were worthy of my love,
Than to be loved again of you - farewell;
And though ye kill my hope, not yet my love,
Vex not yourself: ye will not see me more. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Carl Jung
#34. From the viewpoint of analytic psychology, the theatre, aside from any aesthetic value, may be considered as an institution for the treatment of the mass complex. #Quote by Carl Jung
Psychology Of Evil quotes by George III
#35. Knavery seems to be so much a the striking feature of its inhabitants that it may not in the end be an evil that they will become aliens to this kingdom. #Quote by George III
Psychology Of Evil quotes by John Of Kronstadt
#36. The Devil endeavours by every means to keep men in error, in the enticement of the passions, in darkness of mind and heart; in pride, avarice, covetousness, envy, hatred, wicked impatience and irritation; in evil despondence, in the abominations of fornication, adultery, theft, false-witness, blasphemy, negligence, slothfulness, and sluggishness. #Quote by John Of Kronstadt
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Natalia Ginzburg
#37. Human relationships have to be rediscovered every day. We have to remember constantly that every kind of meeting with our neighbor is a human action and so it is always evil or good, true or deceitful, a kindness or a sin. #Quote by Natalia Ginzburg
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Ramsey Isler
#38. Their lives revolved around evil acts; some within their control, and some not. Some of them weren't born with the capacity for kindness, and others found it better to spare no compassion for anyone in this cruel world because they felt none would be given to them. Fate deals a bad hand to some folks. Some people are just doomed to be no good. #Quote by Ramsey Isler
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Yash Chopra
#39. Though, technically, I'm shooting on location, my films are actually based inside a woman's heart. I think women are more emotional than men, and that's a thread I've explored in all my films. When I see TV these days, I'm shocked at how all the main women characters are portrayed as evil. Women are the foundation of everything, and they deserve to be treated that way on camera. #Quote by Yash Chopra
Psychology Of Evil quotes by Catherine Marshall
#40. The cross stands as the final symbol that no evil exists that God cannot turn into a blessing. He is the living Alchemist who can take the dregs from the slag-heaps of life - disappointment, frustration, sorrow, disease, death, economic loss, heartache - and transform the dregs into gold. #Quote by Catherine Marshall
