For evil to flourish, it only requires good men to do nothing.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.
Evil succeeds when good men do nothing
Evil prospers when good men do nothing.
Evil will never be countered while good men do nothing.
When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes.
Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.
What a sad thing men are. Can't do nothing good without being so weak we have to mess it up. Can't build something up without tearing it down.
J. Edgar Hoover: When morals decline and good men do nothing, evil flourishes. A society unwilling to learn from past is doomed. We must never forget our history.
The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.
Men are born to succeed, not to fail.
Henry David Thoreau
Nothing will work unless you do.
