Daily Quote

“To return evil for good is devilish; to return good for good is human; to return good for evil is divine.”

-Alfred Plummer
If you take something good and swap it for something evil, that is just devilish and plain wrong. If you take something good and swap it for another something good, well that is simply human. Humans are always taking something good and responding with good. But to take something evil and make it good is divine. Think of these things being swapped as, for example, personalities. If you take an innocent, nice person and turn them evil, you are doing the complete wrong thing and being extremely devilish. The normal human way is to respond to someone's good mood with your good mood, or someone's decent mood with your good/decent mood, or whatever the case might be. Usually we match moods. If someone yells at you angrily, you angrily yell back. That's normal. That's not changing the person's overall personality. But taking someone who is evil and somehow making them good, while it is a challenge, it is absolutely divine.
