Our successes are seldom as sweet as our enemies’ failures.
You never walk alone. Even the devil is the lord of flies.
I didn’t answer. We were not buddies. We could not chat about the proximity of our offices, or football, or forgiveness.
There are people who help you and people who hurt you. You keep the former. You keep the former until they become the latter and hope that you never hurt the former.
After long enough, everyone in the world will be you enemy.
You cannot continue to hate someone without repeatedly wasting, on them, some of your precious time and mental energy.
[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. [...] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.

No accurate thinker will judge another person by that which the other person's enemies say about him.
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.
The wild Indian power of escaping observation, even where there is little or no cover to hide in, was probably slowly acquired in hard hunting and fighting lessons while trying to approach game, take enemies by surprise, or get safely away when compelled to retreat.
Our legacy platforms have served us well for decades, but we're running out of upgrades that will keep us ahead. Technology is changing too fast, and our enemies are too adaptable.
From the point of the view of the nation's power, it was obvious that while we were fighting the Sino-Japanese war, every effort was to be made to avoid adding to our enemies and opening additional fronts.
I hate admitting that my enemies have a point.
I die adoring God, loving my friends, not hating my enemies, and detesting superstition.
We must, all of us, learn actually not to have enemies, but only confused adversaries who are ourselves in disguise.
I have had a lot of adversaries in my political life, but no enemies that I can remember.
