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.
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.
