I want my book to have a famous quote about good and evil hanging above a spot where people were tortured and killed by somebody who thought doing that would save somebody else, kind of an "ends justify the means" kind of mindset. The one who puts it there is the secondary antagonist, who is going to the opposite extreme, wiping out the first bad guy's entire race to stop what this one guy is doing. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." ~Edmund Burk or "Nature, in her indifference, makes no distinction between good and evil." ~Anatole France I think either could work. The first one is kind of a challenge to the hero, daring her to join him and stop the greater threat, even if it means murdering thousands of innocent people. The second sounds more like he's given up believing in good and evil, and feels like he's stuck in a pointless but inevitable cycle of violence. So which do you guys like better?
