    • Evil Triumphs When Good Men Do Nothing
      Dylan Noakes quotes Edmund Burke (1729-1797), an Irish politician and philosopher, by saying, "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing." This is an often paraphrased version of the quote. The original goes: "All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing." Although the quote has often been attributed to Burke (or in some cases Thomas Jefferson), it does not appear in his works or recorded speeches.
