“In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.” ~ Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn  

“Denouncing evil is a far cry from doing good.” ~ Philip Gourevitch 

“Indifference to evil is more insidious than evil itself. … Few are guilty, but all are responsible.” ~ Rabbi Abraham Heschel

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

“Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.” ~ Baltasar Gracian
