The finest trick of the devil is to persuade you that he does not exist
The devil is an optimist if he thinks he can make people meaner
Demons do not exist any more than gods do, being only the products of the psychic activity of man
The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose
Hell is empty and all the devils are here
An apology for the devil: it must be remembered that we have heard one side of the case. God has written all the books
The devil has put a penalty on all things we enjoy in life. Either we suffer in health or we suffer in soul or we get fat
The bane of all that dread the Devil.

The Idiot Boy


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
