Enemies

I have never made but one prayer to God, a very short one: "O Lord, make my enemies ridiculous." And God granted it.

- Voltaire
2.

Promises may fit the friends, but non-performance will turn them into enemies.

- Franklin, Benjamin
3.

Subtract from the great man all that he owes to opportunity, all that he owes to chance, and all that he gained by the wisdom of his friends and the folly of his enemies, and the giant will often be seen to be a pygmy.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
4.

Journalism could be described as turning one's enemies into money.

- Brown, Craig
5.

Friendship Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe it anyway. A real friend never gets in your way, unless you happen to be on the way down. A friend is someone you can do nothing with and enjoy it. However much we guard ourselves against it, we tend to shape ourselves in the image others have of us. It is not so much the example of others we imitate, as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.

- Hoffer, Eric
6.

The person who has no enemies has no followers.

- Piatt, Don

If there be no enemy there's no fight. If no fight, no victory and if no victory there is no crown.

- Carlyle, Thomas

Pay attention to your enemies for they are the first to discover your mistakes.

- Antisthenes
10.

Use your enemy's hand to catch a snake.

- Persian Proverb
11.

Men of sense often learn from their enemies. It is from their foes, not their friends, that cities learn the lesson of building high walls and ships of war . . .

- Aristophanes
12.

DUEL, n. A formal ceremony preliminary to the reconciliation of two enemies. Great skill is necessary to its satisfactory observance; if awkwardly performed the most unexpected and deplorable consequences sometimes ensue. A long time ago a man lost his life in a duel. That dueling's a gentlemanly vice I hold; and wish that it had been my lot To live my life out in some favored spot -- Some country where it is considered nice To split a rival like a fish, or slice A husband like a spud, or with a shot Bring down a debtor doubled in a knot And ready to be put upon the ice. Some miscreants there are, whom I do long To shoot, to stab, or some such way reclaim The scurvy rogues to better lives and manners, I seem to see them now -- a mighty throng. It looks as if to challenge _me_ they came, Jauntily marching with brass bands and banners! Xamba Q. Dar

- Ambrose Bierce
13.

But all who are not lunitics are agreed about certain things: That it is better to be alive than dead, better to be adequately fed than starved, better to be free than to be a slave. Many people desire these things only for themselves and their friends; they are quite content that their enemies should suffer. These people can be refuted by science: Mankind has become so much one family that we cannot insure our own prosperity except by insuring that of everyone else. If you wish to be happy yourself, you must resign yourself to seeing others also happy.

- Bertrand Russell
14.

Old friends become bitter enemies on a sudden for toys and small offenses.

- Robert Burton

His enemies might have said before that he talked rather too much; but now he has occasional flashes of silence, that make his conversation perfectly delightful.

- Smith, Sydney
16.

Truth of a modest sort I can promise you, and also sincerity. That complete, praiseworthy sincerity which, while it delivers one into the hands of one's enemies, is as likely as not to embroil one with one's friends.

- Conrad, Joseph
17.

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because they are generally the same people.

- G. K. Chesterton
18.

Little, vicious minds abound with anger and revenge, and are incapable of feeling the pleasure of forgiving their enemies.

- Earl of Chesterfield
19.

When a sinister person means to be your enemy, they always start by trying to become your friend.

- Blake, William
20.

The Bible tells us to love our neighbors, and also to love our enemies; probably because generally they are the same people.

- G.K. Chesterton
