1 Everything which comes from one is evil.
2 For their eyes were still, and small, and evil.
3 The evil of our crime is not for the human mind to probe.
4 It was evil and we dared not face our brothers in the morning.
5 Rather shall we be evil with you than good with all our brothers.
6 Nothing matters save the work, our secret, our evil, our precious work.
7 We know that we are evil, but there is no will in us and no power to resist it.
8 It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them.
9 We see the dust of centuries, the dust which hid the great secrets and perhaps great evils.
10 The laws say that none among men may be alone, ever and at any time, for this is the great transgression and the root of all evil.
11 Men never see their own faces and never ask their brothers about it, for it is evil to have concern for their own faces or bodies.
12 Let us forget their good and our evil, let us forget all things save that we are together and that there is joy as a bond between us.
13 This word must never be placed first within man's soul, else it becomes a monster, the root of all the evils on earth, the root of man's torture by men, and of an unspeakable lie.
14 This is an evil thing to say, for it is a transgression, the great Transgression of Preference, to love any among men better than the others, since we must love all men and all men are our friends.
