The Relativity of Evil

There is no absolute evil in this world:
evil is relative.
In this world, there is no poison and sugar
that is not a help to one, a hindrance to another.
Snake-poison is life to the snake,
but it is death to a human being.
The sea is Paradise to a fish,
but can drown animals.

     Jalal ad-Din Rumi
