I like this quote. It reminds me of a few other similar ones.

"Evil prevails when good people do nothing." (Unknown)

"Do not merely listen to the word and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." (James 1:22)

Here are some quotes I found to be quite provocative.

The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.
Joseph Conrad


The function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil.
Cicero

Nothing worse than a monster who thinks he's right with God.
Captain Malcolm Reynolds, Firefly

The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.
Hannah Arendt

I'm hoping you'll get to meet Fred Bishop while you're in the area (he's the director of No Greater Love ministries), but he has one of my favorite quotes on a related subject.
"I can read the Bible, and I can get it into my head just fine. The problem is getting it to come out of my feet."
