I think the devil doesn't exist, but man has created him, he has created him in his own image and likeness.

FYODOR DOSTOEVSKY, The Brothers Karamazov

How! My soul to the devil for a shoulder of mutton, though 'twere blood-raw! Not so, good friend: by'r lady, I had need have it well roasted, and good sauce to it, if I pay so dear.


The devil's an ass: if I were a painter, I would draw him like an idiot, a driveller with a bib and bells. Man should have his head and horns, and woman the rest of him. Poor, simple fiend!

WILLIAM CONGREVE, The Way of the World

The devil is everywhere under the skin of things, searching for a way into the light.

J. M. COETZEE, Elizabeth Costello
