Evil (Adjective)
  Evil report, like the Italian stiletto, is an assassin’s weapon, worthy only of the bravo.
            —Madame de Maintenon
  Evil as treason.
            —Sir Thomas More
  As the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them.
            —Old Testament
