9 Devil Quotes from Literature

The sober devil can hide his cloven hoof; but when the devil drinks he loses his cunning and grows honest. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope "Money, you think, is the sole motive to pains and hazard, deception and deviltry, in this world. How much money did the devil make by gulling Eve?" ~ The Confidence-Man by Herman Melville Mrs. Bittacy rustled ominously, holding her peace meanwhile. She feared long words she did not understand. Beelzebub lay hid among too many syllables. ~ The Man Whom the Trees Loved by Algernon Blackwood "It's a bonny thing," said he. "Just see how it glints and sparkles. Of course it is a nucleus and focus of crime. Every good stone is. They are the devil's pet baits." ~ The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "You remember how he would trust strangers, and if they fooled him he would say, 'It's better to be fooled than to be suspicious'--that the confidence trick is the work of man, but the want-of-confidence trick is the work of the devil." ~ Howards End by E. M. Forster He would have passed a pleasant life of it, in despite of the Devil and all his works, if his path had not been crossed by a being that causes more perplexity to mortal man than ghosts, goblins, and the whole race of witches put together, and that was--a woman. ~ The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving "O devil, devil! If that the earth could teem with woman's tears, each drop she falls would prove a crocodile." ~ Othello by William Shakespeare Is Mr. Heathcliff a man? If so, is he mad? And if not, is he a devil? I sha'n't tell my reasons for making this inquiry; but I beseech you to explain, if you can, what I have married. ~ Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte "The devil's agents may be of flesh and blood, may they not?" ~ The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
