Wicked Quotes

As long as war is looked upon as wicked, it will always have its fascination. When it is looked on as vulgar, it will cease to be popular.

Oscar Wilde

If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust; the wicked people would have it all their own way: they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse. When we are struck at without a reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again.

Patrick Branwell Bront

The giving of riches and honors to a wicked man is like giving strong wine to him that hath a fever.

Plutarch

I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.

Oscar Wilde

The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.

Bible

If all the world hated you, and believed you wicked, while your own conscience approved you, and absolved you from guilt, you would not be without friends

Charlotte Bronte Jane Eyre

Error is a hardy plant; it flourisheth in every coil; In the heart of the wise and good, alike with the wicked and foolish; For there is no error so crooked, but it hath in it some lines of truth.

Martin Fraquhar Tupper

Fantasy for me as a kid was real, and I had a fantasy about what life was, whether it was sort of wicked and dire, or wholly normal, or whatever. Anything really close to home is not, it seems to me, what a good book should be about.

Diana Wynne Jones

IMMORAL, adj. Inexpedient. Whatever in the long run and with regard to the greater number of instances men find to be generally inexpedient comes to be considered wrong, wicked, immoral. If man\'s notions of right and wrong have any other basis than this of expediency; if they originated, or could have originated, in any other way; if actions have in themselves a moral character apart from, and nowise dependent on, their consequences --then all philosophy is a lie and reason a disorder of the mind.

Ambrose Bierce

The gains of the wicked bring short-lived pleasure, but afterwards long-continued grief.

Antiphanes of Macedonia

Vegetarians have wicked, shifty eyes and laugh in a cold, calculating manner. They pinch little children, steal stamps, drink water, favor beards.

J.B. MORTON

A wicked conscience mouldeth goblins swift as frenzy thoughts.

William Shakespeare

And, O! there lives within my heart A hope long nursed by me, (And should its cheering ray depart How dark my soul would be) That as in Adam all have died In Christ shall all men live And ever round his throne abide Eternal praise to give; That even the wicked shall at last Be fitted for the skies And when their dreadful doom is past To life and light arise.

Anne Bront

I hope you have not been leading a double life, pretending to be wicked and being really good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.
