Julia Louis-Dreyfus is just perfect in ‘Veep.’ She gets to show off the spiky claws beneath her patrician finesse. The obvious way to play ‘Veep’ would be to make Louis-Dreyfus a folksy heroine, one with more common sense or populist heart than her enemies. But she isn’t one.
Rob Sheffield

Noam Chomsky

Ben Carson
Isn’t it the sweetest mockery to mock our enemies?

Thomas Babington Macaulay
I will not call that person happy who knows no rest because of his enemies, who is the butt of fun by all and for whom no one has any empathy, who is as if held on a leash by others, who has lost himself in hedonistic pursuits, who preys on those weaker to him and wags his tail for his superiors.

Tom King
I heard my mother talking badly of me to people who were talking badly of me in her salon. That’s probably the thing that I’m most sensitive of in all my friendships and my relationships. I just… I just can’t take that. I’m comfortable with enemies, but I can’t take it from friends.

Like the attack on Pearl Harbor, another hinge event in American history, 9/11 was a great tactical victory for America’s enemies. But in both these cases, the tactical success of the attacks was not matched by strategic victories. Quite the reverse.
Peter Bergen
Oh, happy day when the enemies of ascendancy have got to confess that people of color rock.
John Ridley
I think business, government and unions have to work together, and the common enemies to the global economy. We’re being beaten by the global economy, and we’ve got to unite together to win.
Stephen Pagliuca
The enemies of the future are always the very nicest people.
Christopher Morley
Since the first archer fired the first arrow, warriors have been inventing ways to strike their enemies while removing themselves from harm’s way.
Tom Malinowski
I learned early in life that you get places by having the right enemies.
John Shelby Spong
I think we’ve always been fascinated with the idea of the romantic outlaw. John Gotti could be in one instance a charismatic, kind and loving family man, and in another, deadly to his enemies. The opportunity to tell the true story of Gotti with John Travolta is a director’s dream.
Joe Johnston
The people are fed up with their elected officials playing the blame game and treating their political counterparts as enemies.
Carl Lewis
There are times when you have to face your enemies, sit down and deal with it.
Martin Scorsese
I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.
Sheryl Crow
He killed his enemies because he was afraid they would kill him. Amin ordered entire tribes to be put to death, because he feared they would rebel.
Ryszard Kapuscinski
I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends.
Walt Whitman
I’ve forgiven all my enemies – even those who have stolen money from me.
Kevin McCloud
Don’t create more enemies than you take out by some immoral act.
Jim Mattis
The only foes that threaten America are the enemies at home, and these are ignorance, superstition and incompetence.
Elbert Hubbard
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
Nationalism makes us weak because its eternal seeking of enemies, its disdain of others, its need to feel superior makes cooperation with other nations to collectively guarantee our freedom and security much more difficult.
Frans Timmermans
I am not afraid of my enemies, but by God, you must look out when you get among your friends.
Cornelius Vanderbilt
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
I think, under President Obama, who was a really bright guy – I didn’t agree with a lot of his politics – but we got to the point internationally where our friends didn’t trust us. They were confused. And our enemies didn’t quite respect us.
John Kennedy
The number of illegal activities were so large that one was bound to come out and lead to the uncovering of the others. Nixon was too willing to use the power of government to settle scores and get even with enemies.
Bob Woodward
I am one of the baddest enemies anybody can have.
Bruce Rauner
It’s said in Hollywood that you should always forgive your enemies – because you never know when you’ll have to work with them.
Lana Turner
To our enemies all over the world who plan America’s demise, please take my advice. Give up now. No matter what, you will lose. You will lose it all.
Henry Rollins
It might not be pretty, but the A-10 is our most capable close air-support aircraft, and its arrival on the battlefield signals survival for our troops and annihilation for our enemies.
Martha McSally
While the CDC is focusing on how our enemies could attack us, our military is focused on who may attack us.
John Linder
When my enemies stop hissing, I shall know I’m slipping.
Maria Callas
The enemies of peace have not disappeared.
Ehud Olmert
I can’t afford a whole new set of enemies.
Cecil Beaton
As a matter of self-preservation, a man needs good friends or ardent enemies, for the former instruct him and the latter take him to task.
This is technology that will not go away. And to risk it moving into the hands of a terrorist group like al Qaeda or to other focused enemies of the United States, would have tragic consequences.
John Sununu
We can no longer apply the classic criteria to clearly determine whether and when we should use military force. We are waging war in Afghanistan, for example, but it’s an asymmetrical war where the enemies are criminals instead of soldiers.
Otto Schily
The truth is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. It sometimes causes us difficulties at home and abroad. It is sometimes used by our enemies in attempts to hurt us. But the American people are entitled to it, nonetheless.
John McCain
The National Rifle Association has an extensive enemies list, and I am, frankly, insulted that I am not on it.
Alan Colmes
I do like Donald Trump. He’s like me, making enemies everywhere he goes.
Ruben Diaz Sr.
I do believe that we are to love our enemies and do good to those who persecute you. I believe that there is power and strength in that.
Michael Moore
I propose not our enemies as an example for our general imitation, yet, as their navy is the best regulated of any in the world, we must, in some degree, imitate them and aim at such farther improvement as may one day make ours vie with – and exceed – theirs.
John Paul Jones
I love the way capitalism finds a place – even for its enemies.
Sometimes even paranoids have enemies.
Delmore Schwartz
A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.
Mahatma Gandhi
If we could read the secret history of our enemies we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
We have entered a new phase in Islamist terror. Fifteen years after 9/11, our enemies have regained their momentum.
Michael McCaul
All of Bengal knows about my differences with my father. He’s based in Mumbai. I never visit him. He never visits me. We are not enemies. But neither are we friends.
Prosenjit Chatterjee
Liberal Christianity, of course, has enemies, but they are everyone’s enemies – sexism, racism, homophobia. But liberal versions of Christianity, which can be both theologically and politically conservative, assume that what it means to be Christian qua Christian is to have no enemies peculiar to being Christian.
Stanley Hauerwas
Man’s enemies are not demons, but human beings like himself.
Lao Tzu
I owe much to my friends; but, all things considered, it strikes me that I owe even more to my enemies. The real person springs life under a sting even better than under a caress.
Andre Gide
If a wise man behaves prudently, how can he be overcome by his enemies? Even a single man, by right action, can overcome a host of foes.
Saskya Pandita
First of all, ‘Sarkar’ is not an underworld film. It’s about a man at the head of a feudal set-up in the middle of a cosmopolitan city, where he almost runs a parallel government largely due to his personal charisma. And the film is about his friends and enemies and his family.
Ram Gopal Varma
I hope to outlive my enemies.
William Sanderson
The only times during my religious instruction I remember hearing God’s name invoked with any sincere conviction at all was in the oft-repeated and breathtakingly chauvinistic claim that Israel’s ‘miraculous’ military victories over much-stronger enemies proved that He was ever on Zion’s side.
Rick Perlstein
The only thing that will be remembered about my enemies after they’re dead is the nasty things I’ve said about them.
Camille Paglia
It is important to remember that if we treat people who could be allies as enemies, we can only alienate them from our cause.
Karamo Brown
In America, now, let us – Christian, Jew, Muslim, agnostic, atheist, wiccan, whatever – fight nativism with the same strength and conviction that we fight terrorism. My faith calls on its followers to love one’s enemies. A tall order, that – perhaps the tallest of all.
Jon Meacham
Dictators must have enemies. They must have internal enemies to justify their secret police and external enemies to justify their military forces.
Richard Perle
President Reagan has no enemies in the Phillipines.
Ferdinand Marcos
There is no finer sensations in life that which comes with victory over one’s self. Go forward to a goal of inward achievement, brushing aside all your old internal enemies as you advance.
Vash Young
Nowadays, it is no longer possible to maintain that the Nazi-Soviet pact of 23 August 1939 was a fiction invented by bourgeois-imperialist enemies. Everyone has seen the film clips of Herr Ribbentrop landing in Moscow, and of Stalin smiling broadly as Ribbentrop and Molotov signed up side by side.
Norman Davies
Some of the press who speak loudly about the freedom of the press are themselves the enemies of freedom. Countless people dare not say a thing because they know it will be picked up and made a song of by the press. That limits freedom.
Geoffrey Fisher
I die adoring God, loving my friends, not hating my enemies, and detesting superstition.
In the restaurant business, you never want to have enemies, whereas it seems that many politicians judge their success by how high their enemies are and whether they can show that they can hold their ground and give a punch for every punch they take.
John Hickenlooper
Governments exist to protect the rights of minorities. The loved and the rich need no protection: they have many friends and few enemies.
Wendell Phillips
The enemies cannot destroy the king who has at his service the respect and friendship of the wise men who can find fault, disagree, and correct him.
Friends come and go but enemies accumulate.
Arthur Bloch
Never explain – your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
Elbert Hubbard
We are our own worst enemies and as a coach you can help people recognise that, raise their self-awareness and then see if they change or do anything about it.
Graham Potter
If speech always wins, even if it’s an atomic secret that’s going to be broadcast to our enemies, it’s easy to make a decision. Speech always wins. But it doesn’t… Liberty doesn’t always trump equality or equality always trump liberty.
David Souter
I have never been bewildered for long in any fight with our enemies – I was Armed with Insight.
Jim Mattis
Trump’s enemies pretend to care about his past with women or about ‘children.’ But really, they hate good men, good women, unborn babies, and children – they actively target, brainwash, and corrupt innocent children, teaching them that wrong is right and right is wrong.
Jesse Lee Peterson
What I’m saying is, ‘Look, life is a long thing, and I don’t need enemies. I need friends just like Donald Trump.’
Corey Lewandowski
I don’t get mentioned in too many things that deal with hip-hop, really, because I’m not really friends with anybody. Not in the way where I’m enemies with them; I just don’t meet people.
The enemies are not so much from without as from within the race.
Marcus Garvey
Old friends become bitter enemies on a sudden for toys and small offenses.
Robert Burton
Your enemies love your failures, sure. But what they love even more is to see you brought so low by those failures that you never get up again. Sometimes enemies aren’t even external. Often, our biggest critic, our greatest enemy, is ourselves.
Kameron Hurley
There is more to life than saas bahu issues with women being portrayed as petty characters and their own worst enemies.
Saba Qamar
You can calculate the worth of a man by the number of his enemies, and the importance of a work of art by the harm that is spoken of it.
Gustave Flaubert
Do I like foreign aid? Sometimes, but not every time. Don’t like giving money to our enemies, but I love giving money to Israel.
Dan Webster
The Emergency Banking Act reached back in time to amend the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, which had originally been intended to criminalize economic intercourse between American citizens and declared enemies of the United States.
Thomas Woods
People have different relationships with power. I suppose a large portion of the ‘Homeland’ audience aligns with the U.S., sort of against the enemies. We certainly have the CIA viewpoint on the world – and it’s their job.
Martin Donovan
When we turn to one another for counsel we reduce the number of our enemies.
Khalil Gibran
Enemies’ gifts are no gifts and do no good.
I don’t worry about making enemies with what I do. This is all just business to me.
Pete Dunne
When you’re trying to lose weight, one of the most important things you can do is eat three decent meals a day so that you’re not so hungry that you can’t get food off your mind. Habit and hunger have long been the basic, insidious enemies of the overweight. We can’t fight hunger, but we can fight habit.
Jean Nidetch
It is right to endure with resignation what the gods send, and to face one’s enemies with courage.
Our constitutional liberties shall not be sacrificed in our search for greater security, for that is what our enemies and all enemies of freedom and democracy hope to achieve.
Tammy Baldwin
Collectivism and freedom are mortal enemies. Only one will survive.
G. Edward Griffin
English is an outrageous tangle of those derivations and other multifarious linguistic influences, from Yiddish to Shoshone, which has grown up around a gnarly core of chewy, clangorous yawps derived from ancestors who painted themselves blue to frighten their enemies.
Roy Blount, Jr.
Every dollar cut from the price of oil weakens the enemies of freedom and strengthens America.
Robert Zubrin
It is not enough for me to win. My enemies must lose.
David Merrick
The most ironic thing is that The Pirate Bay’s enemies include not just the U.S. government but also many European and the Russian one.
Peter Sunde
The Soviet Union was a one-party state. In such states, enemies of the party become enemies of the state, and the state can punish with full weight of prosecution.
Mimi Kennedy
I have watched men suffer the anguish of imprisonment, defy appalling human cruelty… break for a moment, then recover inhuman strength to defy their enemies once more.
John McCain
Even in reality shows, how they look at black women like they’re the monsters – snatching wigs, and weaves and wigs, weaves and wigs, basically, and throwing water and stuff. That’s how people see us often, as we are the enemies of things. I wanted to change that because that’s not a good example.
Marsai Martin
Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?
Abraham Lincoln
I am sure I ought not to be, but I have great reason to tremble lest Satan and my own wicked heart get the better of me. It is no easy matter to fight such enemies as these, but with Christ strengthening me, I know I shall come off more than a conquerer.
Elijah Parish Lovejoy
Remove advertising, disable a person or firm from proclaiming its wares and their merits, and the whole of society and of the economy is transformed. The enemies of advertising are the enemies of freedom.
David Ogilvy
Whoever benefits his enemy with straightforward intention that man’s enemies will soon fold their hands in devotion.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
But whoever gives birth to useless children, what would you say of him except that he has bred sorrows for himself, and furnishes laughter for his enemies.
Black women sharing close ties with each other, politically or emotionally, are not the enemies of Black men.
Audre Lorde
Reason and love are sworn enemies.
Pierre Corneille
Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.
Mahatma Gandhi
Abroad, our most important policy is to support our troops and continue forward-thinking foreign policy in the war on terror – keeping our enemies on the run and hitting them before they hit us.
Christopher Bond
The idea is to go to bed every night with fewer enemies than you had in the morning.
David Petraeus
When we struggle, as so many do, in grinding poverty, or when our enemies prevail against us, or when sickness is not healed, the enemy of our souls can send his evil message that there is no God or that if He exists He does not care about us.
Henry B. Eyring
Sooner or later a man has simply got to do what he thinks is right, no matter what other people, or the courts, or his friends, or his enemies, or God himself may tell him.
Sterling Hayden
This bloody past suggests to us that enemies cease hostilities only when they are battered enough to acknowledge that there is no hope in victory – and thus that further resistance means only useless sacrifice.
Victor Davis Hanson
Girls are so often pitted against each other as enemies or adversaries. We even see it in ‘Us’ magazine: Who wore it better?
Elizabeth Berkley
As an observer, I react to the realities of Israeli life with both envy and relief. Nobody wants to live under the threat of constant attack from enemies right next door, under ceaseless and often unfair international scrutiny, defending his homeland by day and living with the memories of mass genocide at night.
Pete Hegseth
Devastation could arise insidiously, rather than suddenly, through unsustainable pressure on energy supplies, food, water and other natural resources. Indeed, these pressures are the prime ‘threats without enemies’ that confront us.
Martin Rees
The prescription for endless war poses a far greater danger to Americans than perceived enemies do, for reasons the terrorist organisations understand very well.
Noam Chomsky
You have within you many strong and cruel enemies to overcome. You must know that there are still a thousand ties which you must break. No one can tell you what they are; only you can tell by looking at yourself and into your heart.
Johannes Tauler
Something that truly frustrates me is the impression in Israel that when you are talking about security, you are bold; you are tough: this is what we need against all the enemies that we have. And when someone is talking about peace, you know, it’s the naive left wing, soft.
Tzipi Livni
I bring out the worst in my enemies and that’s how I get them to defeat themselves.
Roy Cohn
Bodyguards offer fake security. The real security comes from having your enemies know nothing about you.
Bill Browder
Those who criticize Putin are not human: they are my personal enemies.
Ramzan Kadyrov
The Cold War was a boring thing. Nobody gets better for it. Tremendous money is wasted. Our lives get more difficult. We look at each other as enemies. What’s good in that? In any case, I will do anything in my power in order to stop another Cold War, with the U.S. or any other country in the world.
Dmitry Medvedev
When I was a kid, what captivated me about detective fiction were the puzzles more than the detectives or their enemies. And as I’ve gotten older, I see a lot of merit in setting your investigative sights higher than figuring out how someone stole Encyclopedia Brown’s bicycle.
Mark Waid
When you’re playing football, and your enemies are there, you don’t have a lot of time to think to yourself. You’ve got stuff to handle. You’ve got places to be, meetings to go to, bigger fish to fry. You really don’t attack the emotional side of your life.
Stefon Diggs
I am friends with everyone but I make enemies in my league.
Kashmira Shah
We were fortunate to have the Russians as our childhood enemies. We practiced hiding under our desks in case they had the temerity to drop a nuclear weapon.
Kary Mullis
Our minds are not our friends when they realize we have work to do – they’re our enemies.
Melvin Van Peebles
I’ve been interested in pandemics for decades. I even made a four-part series for Channel 4 UK and SBS called ‘Invisible Enemies’ which screened in the early 90s.
Norman Swan
We all have enemies, but my enemies would probably describe me as surprisingly ruthless.
Ron Funches
I had rather be plundered by my enemies than by my friends.
Henry IV
Let my enemies devour each other.
Salvador Dali
Our pre-9/11 gun laws allow our enemies in the War on Terror to arm themselves right here in our own country.
Carolyn McCarthy
I don’t wish jail on nobody, not even my worst enemies.
Lil Durk
Pick your enemies carefully or you’ll never make it in Los Angeles.
Rona Barrett
Trump has more understanding and insight than his opponents realize. For a man such as Trump to risk acquiring so many powerful enemies and to risk his wealth and reputation, he had to have known that the people’s dissatisfaction with the ruling establishment meant he could be elected president.
Paul Craig Roberts
Even paranoids have real enemies.
Delmore Schwartz
I regard Christian and Jewish fundamentalism, and all other forms of fundamentalism, as the enemies of God – and I hope you’ll quote me on that.
Arthur Hertzberg
People who make music together cannot be enemies, at least while the music lasts.
Paul Hindemith
Victimizers of children are the enemies of any so-called society.
Andrew Vachss
My reputation was built on hostility. I had no friends and some very virulent enemies in the old-guard art scene when I began. They threw their heavy artillery against me. They were convinced I was perverting the public taste.
Betty Parsons
I jokingly say that the enemies are children, you know. I always say, if you have young kids, your whole goal from the moment they wake up is to make them tired. It’s exhausting. Anybody who’s got kids knows what I’m talking about.
Maz Jobrani
For me, there will be no enemies but unemployment, the deficit, excessive debt, economic stagnation and anything else that keeps our country in these critical circumstances.
Mariano Rajoy
When the enemies’ land force is once conquered and expelled from the continent, our Marine will rise as if by enchantment and become, within the memory of persons now living, the wonder and envy of the world.
John Paul Jones
Newt Gingrich’s rhetorical tics are well-known – his fondness for the word ‘frankly,’ his eagerness to frame even the most mundane development in dramatic world-historical terms, and his eagerness to accuse his enemies of practicing ‘machine’ politics.
Steve Kornacki
I’ve been fighting amidst a lot of opposition from both Hillary Clinton as well as some Republicans who wanted to send arms to the allies of ISIS. ISIS rides around in a billion dollars worth of U.S. Humvees. It’s a disgrace. We’ve got to stop – we shouldn’t fund our enemies, for goodness sakes.
Rand Paul
Drugs are the enemies of ambition and hope – and when we fight against drugs we are fighting for the future.
Bob Riley
The Home Guards are required to come in at once and deliver up their arms, those who fail to do so will be regarded as enemies of the Government and treated accordingly.
John Hunt Morgan
Adding to your list of enemies is never a sound strategy, yet ISIS’ ferocious campaign against the Shia, Kurds, Yazidis, Christians, and Muslims who don’t precisely share its views has united every ethnic and religious group in Syria and Iraq against them.
Peter Bergen
I don’t hold America responsible for the largely oppressive governments in the 22 Arab countries. There are repressive Arab governments that are our allies and there are those that are our nominal enemies. It doesn’t make a whole lot of difference to what extent we’re involved in propping up those governments.
Lawrence Wright
I’ve always felt that it didn’t feel right for me when a protagonist goes through a storyline where they’re killing a lot of enemies, and at the very end of the story he ends up kissing the heroine and that’s where you end the game.
Yoko Taro
I care about public perception, yes. I don’t care about my enemies’ perception.
George Galloway
Interpol was set up to catch fugitives, not act like the long arm of Putin going after his enemies.
Bill Browder
Be assured those will be thy worst enemies, not to whom thou hast done evil, but who have done evil to thee. And those will be thy best friends, not to whom thou hast done good, but who have done good to thee.
If we follow the traditional way of thought, there will always be traditional enemies. Extremist circles from both sides will find causes to give rise to problems.
Fatos Nano
The Americans will never solve the Indian problem till the Indian is extinct. They have treated them after a fashion which has intensified their treachery and ‘devilry’ as enemies, and as friends reduces them to a degraded pauperism, devoid of the very first elements of civilization.
Isabella Bird
A man who has made no enemies is probably not a very good man.
Antonin Scalia
May we be saved from evil thoughts and deed of enemies of world peace who find pleasure in creating havoc and perpetrating all forms of carnage.
Yahya Jammeh
No man ever got very high by pulling other people down. The intelligent merchant does not knock his competitors. The sensible worker does not knock those who work with him. Don’t knock your friends. Don’t knock your enemies. Don’t knock yourself.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
When public leaders turn public debates into words of war – ‘enemies’ ‘go to hell’ ‘attack’ – they are enabling the edgiest of their followers to take things into their hands, and unfortunately, some of them do.
Charlie Baker
It doesn’t really matter how much of the rules or the dogma we accepted and lived by if we’re not really living by the fundamental creed of the Catholic Church, which is service to others and finding God in ourselves and then seeing God in everyone – including our enemies.
Martin Sheen
The anti-individualist enemies that Ayn Rand battled are still the enemy, but they’ve shifted their line of attack. Political collectivists are no longer much interested in taking things away from the wealthy and creative.
P. J. O’Rourke
The BJP has never considered its political opponents as enemies.
Yogi Adityanath
Comforts and syphilis are the greatest enemies of mankind.
Alexis Carrel
It is not oil or the environment, it is oil and the environment. We are living in the same world. We are not enemies.
Christophe de Margerie
The real enemies of our life are the ‘oughts’ and the ‘ifs.’ They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future. But real life takes place in the here and now.
Henri Nouwen
The minute the church and pastors start saying what do people want and then giving it to them, we betray our calling. We’re called to have people follow Jesus. We’re called to have people learn how to forgive their enemies.
Eugene H. Peterson
A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother’s love endures through all.
Washington Irving
Of all the enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.
James Madison
I make enemies deliberately. They are the sauce piquante to my dish of life.
Elsa Maxwell
It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.
J. K. Rowling
I have made more friends for American culture than the State Department. Certainly I have made fewer enemies, but that isn’t very difficult.
Arthur Miller
God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve.
Jerry Falwell
A man can’t be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
Oscar Wilde
Freedom of ideas and communications is one of the things we are fighting for, and our enemies are fighting against.
Elmer Davis
What is the motive to the secret ballot? This, and only this: Like other confederates in crime, those who use it are not friends, but enemies; and they are afraid to be known, and to have their individual doings known, even to each other.
Lysander Spooner
In order to rally people, governments need enemies… if they do not have a real enemy, they will invent one in order to mobilize us.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I choose my friends for their good looks, my acquaintances for their good characters, and my enemies for their intellects. A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
Oscar Wilde
Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all.
Jules Verne
True partisans draft legislation that gives themselves everything and their enemies nothing. They love bills that repulse and even disgust the other side. Today’s politics have become an all-or-nothing, black-or-white, zero-sum game – it’s not a contact sport but a blood sport.
Jim Cooper
Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to anyone who serves honourably. I think it’s despicable that a president would put veterans on his website and list them on an enemies list.
Ryan Zinke
I don’t have a ton of enemies. I get along with people pretty well when I’m not annoying them to death.
Joss Whedon
Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.
Elizabeth Bowen
I would not kill my enemies, but I will make them get down on their knees. I will, I can, I must.
Maria Callas
If the nation is not capable of preserving itself and reproducing, if it loses it vital bearings and ideals, then it doesn’t need foreign enemies – it will fall apart on its own.
Vladimir Putin
Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
Joseph Stalin
My mother and our pastor always said you have to pray for your enemies and people who do you wrong, and that’s what I did.
Ruby Bridges
A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself. He makes his failure certain by himself being the first person to be convinced of it.
Ambrose Bierce
The harsh reality is this: to have influence in the world, you need to be willing and able to reward your friends and punish your enemies.
Antonio Garcia Martinez
Often we have no time for our friends but all the time in the world for our enemies.
Leon Uris
I don’t think you get to be pope without making some enemies, like you do when you’re president.
Viggo Mortensen
Political criticism is our enemies’ best friend.
Bernard Kerik
Our enemies are our evil deeds and their memories, our pride, our selfishness, our malice, our passions, which by conscience or by habit pursue us with a relentlessness past the power of figure to express.
George A. Smith
Benefit your friends; make sure your enemies suffer from being your enemies.
Louie Gohmert
The first glass is for myself, the second for my friends, the third for good humor, and the forth for my enemies.
William Temple
We have real enemies, dedicated to dominating and eventually destroying us, and they are not going to be talked out of their hatred.
Michael T. Flynn
In the wake of 9/11, we were desperate to bring those responsible for the brutal attacks to justice. But even that urgency did not justify torture. The United States must be held to a higher standard than our enemies, yet some of our actions did not clear that bar.
Dianne Feinstein
Men are by nature merely indifferent to one another; but women are by nature enemies.
Arthur Schopenhauer
One side-effect of the so-called war on terror has been a crisis of liberalism. This is not only a question of alarmingly illiberal legislation, but a more general problem of how the liberal state deals with its anti-liberal enemies.
Terry Eagleton
The Paul name has been a divisive one at Obama-era CPAC gatherings, with rabid supporters of Ron Paul invading the hall to cheer on their man, jeer his Republican enemies, and in 2010 and 2011 delivering straw poll victories to him.
Steve Kornacki
Social man regards all those by whom he is surrounded as enemies, or beings who may become such. He is ever on his guard lest his plain speaking should be willfully perverted, or should assume a meaning he never thought of, through the animosity or prejudice of the individual that hears him.
William Godwin
Let us carefully observe those good qualities wherein our enemies excel us; and endeavor to excel them, by avoiding what is faulty, and imitating what is excellent in them.
You cannot find one single verse in the New Testament that calls for violence against non-believers. Jesus said to love your enemies. Muhammad said to butcher your enemies.
Robert Jeffress
We need to defend against weaknesses within and enemies without, using the tools of civil society and hard power. We don’t have to pick one over the other.
Stanley A. McChrystal
I love fighting back. I love finding allies, and – famously – I enjoy making enemies.
Andrew Breitbart
I don’t consider myself to be less than Jhansi ki Rani. In the Panipat war, she was a lone woman while she had thousands of enemies. Same way, even I have a thousand enemies in my fight. That was the war of Panipat, mine is the war of Ludhiana.
Rakhi Sawant
I don’t want enemies. I want friends, and I want them in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and loving whoever they want to.
Kevin Hart
I have no one at my side except God and His angels. I pray to God that He will turn my enemies into pillars of salt.
Miriam Defensor-Santiago
The facts are the vice president’s company that he was CEO of, that did business with sworn enemies of the United States, paid millions of dollars in fines for providing false financial information, it’s under investigation for bribing foreign officials.
John Edwards
Always write angry letters to your enemies. Never mail them.
James Fallows
Enemies are so stimulating.
Katharine Hepburn
Nothing has been left undone by the enemies of freedom. Every art and artifice, every cruelty and outrage has been practiced and perpetrated to destroy the rights of man. In this great struggle, every crime has been rewarded and every virtue has been punished.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Some friends are better shots than are casual enemies.
Eddie Rickenbacker
Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the first to discover your mistakes.
