Sayings of a Gadfly
by Max Maxwell

 A man looked at a picture of starving children and said, “There is so much evil in the world.  How can evil be more powerful than good?” 

 The Gadfly said, “The power of evil is not measured by its own merits, but by the value of the good it affects.  Our deepest pain draws its strength from our deepest beauty; and great destruction can only befall that which is great.  The perception of the power of evil is a heart-rending testimony to the great beauty and good of our existence.  Only a mediocre existence will experience mediocre evil.”
