Enemies

Famous quotes containing the word enemies:

    Not only the bull attacks his enemies with curved horn, but also the sheep, when harmed fights back.
    Propertius Sextus (c. 50–16 B.C.)

    Never yield to that temptation, which, to most young men, is very strong, of exposing other people’s weaknesses and infirmities, for the sake either of diverting the company, or of showing your own superiority. You may get the laugh on your side by it for the present; but you will make enemies by it for ever; and even those who laugh with you then, will, upon reflection, fear, and consequently hate you.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
