Blessed are They With Enemies, For Their Lives are Driven

“Without a trace of irony I can say I have been blessed with brilliant enemies. I owe them a great debt, because they redoubled my energies and drove me in new directions.”

~EO Wilson

This is Why The Good Have as Many Enemies as the Wicked

The wicked envy and hate; it is their way of admiring.
**Victor Hugo

Signs of Virtue

“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” 

**Winston Churchill

Control Your Temper

“When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn’t said afterward. There’s nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in–that’s stronger. It’s a good thing not to answer your enemies.” 

**A Little Princess

The World Will Teach Them Fear, Now Teach Them Honor.

” Since it is so likely children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.”

~~C. S. Lewis

Neighbors

“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
