  • Even murder is on perspective. Almost everything has a reason behind it. What happened to them? Why did they become that way? Did they do it out of self defense? Did they go insane? So many factors go into something everyone thinks they have pegged down. When you think you know the answer behind the act you are thrown through another loop. Nothing is as easy as black and white. The world is full of grey.

  • If you look at a small picture I would disagree. There are evils. If you look at the world or life as a whole I can see that it is a matter of perception.

  • Agreed, I love this book and a lot of what it says is true. I truly believe that people are not born evil and people are not infinitely evil once they have done wrong. It is a course of bad decisions and circumstances. Anyone can have the chance to be good and even someone who was good can choose to be bad. It depends on the person and not on some negative deity. And that is my perception of that quote. You have to read the whole book to get a better idea of what the author meant.

  • You have to read the whole book to understand what the author was saying. This is just a small portion of what he said.

  • I don't know - I don't believe evil actually exists. I believe evil is only an absence of goodness, kind of like how darkness is an absence of light. And I don't believe anyone has no good in them whatsoever....

  • I have to disagree. Some things are evil no matter which way you look at it... And I'm talking HUMAN evil, nothing to do with religion.

  • i have to disagree. sure there are times an evil thing can be seen by some as good, but the majority of the time most real evil as in fact evil.

  • disagree entirely. some issues of right or wrong are definitely black and white.
