Opponent

Famous quotes containing the word opponent:

    A candidate once called his opponent “a willful, obstinate, unsavory, obnoxious, pusillanimous, pestilential, pernicious, and perversable liar” without pausing for breath, and even his enemies removed their hats.
    —Federal Writers’ Project Of The Wor, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)

    The Catholic and the Communist are alike in assuming that an opponent cannot be both honest and intelligent.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already.... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”
    Adolf Hitler (1889–1945)
