Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.jesus christ
Many [hooligans] discover to their shame that they have scruples; they have roots and, greatest disadvantage of all, they have hope. The fathers superior of the order do not try to influence their children in Satan; they merely shake their heads in sorrow. They know that the apostate must work out his own damnation.Quentin Crisp
By God's grace, I know Satan very well. If Satan can turn God's Word upside down and pervert the Scriptures, what will he do with my words -- or the words of others?Martin Luther
We go by the major vote, and if the majority are insane, the sane must go to the hospital. As Satan said, "Evil, be thou my good," so they say, "Darkness, bo thou my light."horace mann

We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents.
Every man at every moment has two simultaneous tendencies: one toward God, the other toward Satan.Charles Baudelaire
Sanctum Satanum meum. My holy Satan.
It having been said above that God bends all the reprobate, and even Satan himself, at his will, three objections are started. First, that this happens by the permission, not by the will of God. To this objection there is a twofold reply, the one, that angels and men, good and bad, do nothing but what is appointed by God; the second, that all movements are secretly directed to their end by the hidden inspiration of God...john calvin
Drink is in itself a good creature of God, but the abuse of drink is from Satan.increase mather
In works of labour or of skillI would be busy too:For Satan finds some mischief stillFor idle hands to do.Isaac Watts
Imam [Khomeini] taught us to reject injustice, and to never accept the barbaric America, which is trying to take over the world. Many people have come up with terms to describe America. But let me be frank with you, I haven't found any term more beautiful, lofty, and noble than the term "the Great Satan" to describe America.
Ô toi, le plus savant et le plus beau des Anges, Dieu trahi par le sort et privé de louanges, Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère! Ô Prince de l'exil, à qui l'on a fait tort Et qui, vaincu, toujours te redresses plus fort, Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère! Toi qui sais tout, grand roi des choses souterraines, Guérisseur familier des angoisses humaines, Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère! Toi qui, même aux lépreux, aux parias maudits, Enseignes par l'amour le goût du Paradis, Ô Satan, prends pitié de ma longue misère!Charles Baudelaire

And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.william cowper
Temptations hurt not, though they have accesse; Satan o'ercomes none but by willingnesse.Robert Herrick
I summarize more than 30 years of research on factors that can create a "perfect storm " which leads good people to engage in evil actions . This transformation of human character is what I call the "Lucifer Effect," named after God 's favorite angel , Lucifer , who fell from grace and ultimately became Satan . Rather than providing a religious analysis, however, I offer a psychological account of how ordinary people sometimes turn evil and commit unspeakable acts.
Centres, or centre-pieces of wood, are put by builders under an arch of stone while it is in the process of construction till the key-stone is put in. Just such is the use Satan makes of pleasures to construct evil habits upon; the pleasure lasts till the habit is fully formed; but that done, the habit may stand eternal. The pleasures are sent for firewood, and the hell begins in this life.
Satan exalted sat, by merit raised To that bad eminence.john milton
The Satan of the Italian and English poets may be more poetic; but the German Satan is more satanic; and in this respect one could say, the Satan is a German invention.
Nothing is harder for Satan to bear than a person who recites the Qur’an by looking at the pages (of the Qur’an).
Many girls have not the advantage I have and I [am] very very glad that Satan has not geven me boils and many other Misfortunes.Marjory Fleming
God forgiveth not (The sin of) joining other gods with Him; but He forgiveth whom He pleaseth other sins than this: one who joins other gods with God, Hath strayed far, far away (from the right). (The Pagans), leaving Him, call but upon female deities: They call but upon Satan the persistent rebel!
