How evil takes root

“Evil takes root when one man begins to think he is superior to another.”
Joseph Brodsky

“Above all, try to avoid telling stories about the unjust treatment you received at [others’] hands; avoid it no matter how receptive your audience may be. Tales of this sort extend the existence of your antagonists.”
Joseph Brodsky

from Joseph Brodsky: Conversations, by Joseph Brodsky, Cynthia L. Haven, pg. xii
