Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.
Baltasar Gracián
The author of The Art of Worldly Wisdom was born on this day in 1601.



We may not be able to stop all evil in the world, but I know that how we treat one another is entirely up to us. I believe that for all our imperfections, we are full of decency and goodness, and that the forces that divide us are not as strong as those that unite us.
Barack Obama



Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
Blaise Pascal
