hard cover page 92

Evil is the base of the good.
-Baal Shem Tov342

Good is set against evil, and life against death: so is the sinner against the godly. So look upon all the works of the Most High, and these are two and two. one against another.
-Ecclesiastes 33:15

Light is steadily pitted against the dark, and light will increasingly overcome the dark.

Good and evil we know in the field of this world grow up together almost inseparably. . . . It was out of the rinde of one apple tasted that the knowledge of good and evil as two twins cleaving together leapt forever into the world.
-John Milton344
