Read our life is vicious quotes and sayings, and how our inner suppressed vengeful behavior does more harm than good in our lives.
Roman Stoic Philosopher has a depth quote on the default vicious nature of our minds.
He quotes, ‘No man is born wise, but wisdom and virtue require a tutor; though we can easily learn to be vicious without a master.’
All good virtues in life have to be learned and understood. Hence, we need to teach our kids wisdom and good values apart from the mundane school curriculum to have a loving world.
Hence, being a parent and educator is of the highest responsibility. If we find the world full of atrocities and evil intentions of all kinds, it is because our upbringing at home is fundamentally flawed.
Remember, we all are born with innate impure qualities: anger, jealousy, self-loathing, possessiveness, envy, greed, lust, insecurity, inferiority complex, and much more.
And topping the cherry cake, the family, school, television, and social upbringing makes us even more vice and teaches us to suppress our inner demons by giving us superficial moral values and an outward mask of decency.
We hope our thought-provoking vicious quotes and sayings help us revisit how we live and discard our inner evilness.
