This was how it was with travel: one city gives you gifts, another robs you. One gives you the heart’s affections, the other destroys your soul. Cities and countries are as alive, as feeling, as fickle and uncertain as people. Their degrees of love and devotion are as varying as with any human relation. Just as one is good, another is bad.
The psychology shows that one can do GOOD things to the others, but not so much to make others look BETTER than oneself. So, a person who is being often liked by many or most people in his/her circle has to best and first understand their true intention behind admiration and adulation.
People who claim that they’re evil are usually no worse than the rest of us… It’s people who claim that they’re good, or any way better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.
Good at the wrong place and time becomes evil; evil in the right place and time becomes good.
How good would a Good Samaritan be, if a Good Samaritan would only intend to do good?
And what if you try to kill me? Or worse: to kiss me?
If you boil it down, just because someone else does the wrong thing we are not exempt from doing what’s right.
Good is good and bad is bad, and nowhere is the difference between good and bad so wide and so fateful as in human character. For character makes destiny in the individual and in the race.
Passion makes you good, but pride stops you to get better.
Good necessitates evil.
