Where would your good be if there were no evil and what would the world look like without shadow – “The Master and Margarita” – Mikhail Bulgakov

July 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Extremism, Morality, Quotes, Religion

‘As soon as you appeared on this roof you made yourself ridiculous. It was your tone of voice. You spoke your words as though you denied the very existence of the shadows or of evil. Think, now: where would your good be if there were no evil and what would the world look like without shadow? Shadows are thrown by people and things. There’s the shadow of my sword, for instance. But shadows are also cast by trees and living things. Do you want to strip the whole globe by removing every tree and every creature to satisfy your fantasy of a bare world? You’re stupid.’
