Good and evil

Every positive value has its price in negative terms... the genius of Einstein leads to Hiroshima. (Pablo Picasso)
Inside each of us, there is the seed of both good and evil. It's a constant struggle as to which one will win. And one cannot exist without the other. (Eric Burdon)
When the world knows beauty as beauty, ugliness arises. When it knows good as good, evil arises.Thus being and non-being produce each other. Difficult and easy bring about each other. Long and short reveal each other. High and low support each other. Music and voice harmonise each other. Front and back follow each other. Therefore the sages, manage the work of detached actions. (Tao Te Ching)
