The Twilight Zone: Nightmare as a Child
The Birth of Evil
" Evil is an early or primitive stage of moral development. All children are fiends by nature. The criminals among us are only those who didn't progress.
It's a presence, not an absence. Evil is an incarnated character, an incubus or a succubus. It's an other. It's not an us.
Evil isn't a thing, it's not a person, it's an attribute like beauty.
It's a power, like wind.
It's an infection."- Wicked by Gregory Maguire
“Don't ever call me mad, Mycroft. I'm not mad. I'm just ... well, differently moraled, that's all.” - The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde,
“Demons are like obedient dogs; they come when they are called.” - Remy de Gourmont
