Evil is nothing but virtue gone drunk.

You want to be good but you’re so occupied with your intention to be good, you’re so enamoured by the charm of goodness that you drop all common-sense. That’s what evil is.

You could simply say:

Evil is misplaced goodness, evil is goodness corrupted upon itself. Evil is goodness corrupted due to its own exuberance.
