Cut Movie

To me, the scariest movie ever made to this day is 'The Exorcist.' It still scares the living hell out of me, and it's because of the fantasy element. It's the exorcism. It's the Devil.

- Cassandra Peterson

Financial Classes

Owl I Write

When you realize my best selling books are 'Owl Moon,' the 'How Do Dinosaur' books, and 'Devil's Arithmetic,' how can the public make sense of that!

Long Time Tried

As for the Devil - that is somebody our religion tried to do without for a long time.

- Kerry Thornley

Pursuit Flee

The mystery of the Christian life is that Christ expects us to flee sin and the devil, but does not expect us to rid ourselves of either on this side of glory. Repentance is a way of life, and so is the pursuit of godliness. I wish every Christian could be reminded of these two things.

- Kevin DeYoung

Me Made

The devil made me do it.

- Flip Wilson

If I'm alone too long I think too much, and I'm not interested in doing that. That won't lead anywhere good, I'm sure. If I'm busy I tend to stay out of trouble. An idle mind is the devil's playground.

- Lisa Marie Presley

Feel Least

I can't help seeing 'Waste Land' as the third in a triptych with my earlier films 'Devil's Playground' and 'Blindsight,' and not least in the awe and gratitude I feel for the group of people who were courageous enough to share their stories with us - and to live lives so rich in inspiration for us all.

- Lucy Walker

Grows Old

When the devil grows old he turns hermit.

- Ludovico Ariosto

Love Kind

'Rosemary's Baby' is one of my all-time favorite books. I love that it just ends with, you know, 'Hey, the devil's in the world, and guess what? Mom kind of likes him!' And that's the end.

- Gillian Flynn

Against Afghans

Afghans long ago resigned themselves to this sort of thing. Compromises must be made. Deals with the devil are better than ceaseless butchery. In the exigencies of post-conflict bygones, against the threat of collapse into more terrible bloodletting, the ugliness of realpolitik is the lesser evil.

- Terry Glavin

Bad Fiction

I'm with Milton and the Rolling Stones: I don't find the Devil an unsympathetic character. But in any case, my fiction is populated as much by people who do good as it is by those who do bad. I'm interested in imaginatively accommodating as much of the human as possible, for which you need both moral extremes and everything in between.

Reason Which

Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the devil; for which reason I have long since as good as renounced it.

- Thomas Carlyle

Bad Everybody

History proves that the white man is a devil.

- Malcolm X

Experience Been

I am a member of the Kiowa Gourd Dance Society; I visit sacred places such as Devil's Tower and the Medicine Wheel. These places are important to me, because they've been made sacred by sacrifice, by the investment of blood and experience and story.

Idle time is the devil's play.

- Mark Dayton

Handle Your

I am the worst influence. If you can't handle your vices, then I am the Devil.

- Tori Amos

Life I Think

I think 'Jesus' is the most offensive word in anyone's life. When we mention Jesus, He is the only one who says 'I am God. I am holy. I am the only way to a truthful life.' No one - not Mohammad, not Buddha, not anyone says that they were holy, not anyone says that they were God, not anyone says that they faced the devil face to face and won.

- Nick Vujicic

Soul Some

When everything goes wrong, what a joy to test your soul and see if it has endurance and courage. An invisible and all-powerful enemy - some call him God, others the Devil, seem to rush upon us to destroy us; but we are not destroyed.

- Nikos Kazantzakis

Hate Record

For the record, I don't worship the devil. I just hate religion.
