Society has quite forsaken all her wicked courses,
W. S. Gilbert
Had I no other proof of the immortality of the soul than the oppression of the just and the triumph of the wicked in this world, this alone would prevent my having the least doubt of it. So shocking a discord amidst a general harmony of things would make me naturally look for a cause; I should say to myself we do not cease to exist with this life; everything reassumes its order after death.
Ding-dong, the wicked witch is dead.
E. Y. Harburg
I Love your lips when they're wet with wine and red with wicked desire.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
We are more wicked together than separately. If you are forced to be in a crowd, then most of all you should withdraw into yourself.
Seneca the Younger
Perhaps you say, Why are the wicked joyous? Why do they live in luxury? Why do they not toil with me? It is because they who have not put down their names to strive for the crown are not bound to undergo the labors of the contest. They who have not gone down into the race-course do not annoint themselves with oil nor get covered with dust. For those whom glory awaits trouble is at hand. The perfumed spectators are wont to look on, not to join in the struggle, nor to endure the sun, the heat, the dust, and the showers.
The wicked exist in this world either to be converted or that through them the good may exercise patience.
Never prayed to God, I prayed to Gotti, that's right it's wicked, that's life I live it. Ain't askin' for forgiveness for my sins. I gotta get my soul right, I gotta get these Devils out my life. Lord forgive him, He got them dark forces in. connected to the high power. 666. I can introduce you to evil.
The most High approveth not the gifts of the wicked.
But what world says that I'm wicked? It can only be the next world. This world and I are on excellent terms.
Great God, have pity on the wicked, for thou didst everything for the good, when thou madest them good!
If age, which is certainly Just as wicked as youth, look any wiser, It is only that youth is still able to believe It will get away with anything, while age Knows only too well that it has got away with nothing.
W. H. Auden
