The devil's most devilish when respectable.
— Elizabeth Barrett Browning

The ugly is very appealing to man. It's instinct. One shrinks from the ugly, yet wants to look at it. There's a devilish fascination in it. We extract pleasure from horror.
Sonya Levien devilish quote

You can put in all the difficulties, jumps, runs, and any other devilish complexities you like, except octave spans and similar features which do not suit the formation of hands.
— Johann Nepomuk Hummel

The wrath of brothers is fierce and devilish.
— Proverbs

Anyone who can be proved to be a seditious person is an outlaw before God and the emperor; and whoever is the first to put him to death does right and well. Therefore let everyone who can, smite, slay and stab, secretly or openly, remembering that nothing can be more poisonous, hurtful, or devilish than a rebel.
— devilish quotation by Martin Luther
