The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
There has to be evil so that good can prove its purity above it.
The surest defense against Evil is extreme individualism, originality of thinking, whimsicality, even -- if you will -- eccentricity. That is, something that can't be feigned, faked, imitated; something even a seasoned imposter couldn't be happy with.
Those that are evil have not only the good against them, but also the bad.
There are evils that have the ability to survive identification and go on for ever... money, for instance, or war.
Evil is done without effort, naturally, it is the working of fate; good is always the product of an art.

If we hope for what we are not likely to possess, we act and think in vain, and make life a greater dream and shadow than it really is.
Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you. [Peter 3:15]
For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
The ablest men in all walks of modern life are men of faith. Most of them have much more faith than they themselves realize.
May it not be that, just as we have to have faith in Him, God has to have faith in us and, considering the history of the human race so far, may it not be that faith is even more difficult for Him than it is for us?
