Census of Evil

A  L  O  H  A !

" No one chooses evil 
because it is evil; 
he only mistakes it 
for happiness, 
the good he seeks. "
                      Mary Shelley

"Evil" People = ?


Thank You!

Hello Cloudia , have missed you.

Hmm is that a question :
Evil people = ?
Well if I read quote correctly ~according to Mary Shelly
Evil people = mistaken happiness . ??

In Mary Shelley's book Frankenstein the scientist created a monster in attempting to create life. He basically went where no man should have gone.

I was also going to mention that it was an interesting quote coming from Mary Shelley since we know she wrote Frankenstein.

I don't know. Evil is not something I like to think about, but I guess it is necessary to ponder both dark and light.

I like how Mary Shelley stated it. I cannot believe that anyone is born bad.
