When I was nine years old, my grandmother gave me a Bible.  Inside the front cover she had scotch-taped the following titled “Evil Is Easy”

If any man desire to live a great life, let him remember that evil is easy.

It is far easier to go with the crowd than it is to stand alone, but greatness does not come that way.

It is always easier to surrender than it is to fight it out, but no man ever found victory in surrendering.

It is much easier to lose one’s temper than control; it is easier by far to compromise than to stand firmly in one’s place.

It is easier to stir up trouble than it is to build up a movement founded on truth.

It requires no courage to be coarse and vulgar, but it takes all one has to be at his best.
