Evil is bound to find a justification for itself, must appear disguised as good–often as the highest good. Evil always and inevitably contains an element appearing to have a positive value, and it is this which seduces man. Evil strives to present its positive aspect as a jewel so precious that all means are justified to attain it.

~Archimandrite Sophrony (St Silouan The Athonite, p.117)
