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
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
Many people see Eva Pero n as either a saint or as the incarnation of Satan. That means I can definitely identify with her.
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

In my opinion, negotiating with America is like shaking hands with Satan, and dancing with wolves, because the Americans are interested in negotiations for negotiations' sake. ...By negotiating with us, they are trying to intimidate the world of Islam and the Islamic movements, saying: "Even Islamic Iran, which you follow and which serves as your model, eventually had no choice but to get along with us."hossein shariatmadari
We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents.
Sanctum Satanum meum. My holy Satan.
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.
Unreason is now ascendant in the United States in our schools, in our courts, and in each branch of the federal government. Only 28 percent of Americans believe in evolution ; 68 percent believe in Satan . Ignorance in this degree, concentrated in both the head and belly of a lumbering superpower, is now a problem for the entire world .sam harris
"[Evolution Theory] is the motivating factor for guys like Hitler and Stalin and George Bush, by the way, who is a Satan worshipper, like we don't know that."kent hovind
Thou art so witty, profligate and thin, At once we think thee Satan, Death and Sin.Edward Young
And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.william cowper
Then a overflowing desire comes to me, absurd, of a sort of satanism before Satan, in that one day [...] an escape out of God can be found and the deepest of us stops, I don't know how, to be a part of being or not being.
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.
A person [Satan] who has during all time maintained the imposing position of spiritual head of four-fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilities of the loftiest order.
If a person replaces most of the water in his body with Koranic water, his body begins to emit steam which contains the Koran. This creates a halo of steam around him, containing the Koran, which fends off Satan .
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.
When Satan wants to tempt Man, he doesn't do so with a transgression but a mitzva - not at the right time nor at the right place.Rabbi Arthur Herzberg Herzburg
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
