Jean-Jacques Rousseau Quote – “There exists no other evil…”

There exists no other evil in nature than what you either do or suffer, and you are equally the author of both… Particular evil exists only in the sentiment of the suffering being; and this sentiment is not given to man by nature, but is of his own acquisition… Take away our errors and our vices… take away, in short, everything that is the work of man, and all that remains is good.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 – 1778)
