Such an iconic figure, The Devil. So many things and situations attributed to the symbolism. Restrictions, limitations, excuses, weakness, evil, debauchery. I was introduced to the devil in my youth through my Catholic upbringing. He holds no sway with me now.
We can also find vile, evil, veil, vie, live and die.
He didn't make a mess of it, he didn't make me do it, he isn't responsible for the details, and the disguise he supposedly wears is just us being human. So we can make a mess of things, doesn't make us bad.
I am grateful for my early education. Heaven and Hell played a big part of the those years of study. Now I choose.
