Turkey is taking advantage of the war in order to thoroughly liquidate its internal foes, i.e., the indigenous Christians, without being thereby disturbed by foreign intervention.
Henceforth we will tackle our enemies that come face to face with us and we will not be stabbed in from behind by internal foes... To this end, we will arm the allies and comrades of the broad masses without giving respite to reactionaries, and avenge the blood of our comrades double - and triple - fold.mengistu haile mariam
He has no enemy, you say; My friend your boast is poor, He who hath mingled in the fray Of duty that the brave endure Must have made foes. If he has none Small is the work that he has done. He has hit no traitor on the hip; Has cast no cup from perjured lip; Has never turned the wrong to right; Has been a coward in the fight.
Farewell, my friends! farewell, my foes! My peace with these, my love with those. The bursting tears my heart declare; Farewell, the bonnie banks of Ayr.Robert Burns
Words, as is well known, are the great foes of reality.Sir William Neil pseudonym Cassandra Connor
An enemy forgiven is more dangerous than a thousand foes.rodolfo graziani
O saving Victim, opening wide The gate of heaven to man below, Our foes press on from every side, Thine aid supply, Thy strength bestow.thomas aquinas
The world is made up, for the most part, of fools and knaves, both irreconcileable foes to truth.villiers, george, 2nd duke of buckingham
Let it be our endeavour, let it be our task, to keep alight the torch of imperial patriotism, to hold fast the affection and the confidence of our kinsmen across the seas; so that in every vicissitude of fortune the British Empire may present an unbroken front to all her foes, and may carry on even to distant ages the glorious traditions of the British flag.joseph chamberlain
The warriors that fought for their country, and bled, Have sunk to their rest; the damp earth is their bed; No stone tells the place where their ashes repose, Nor points out the spot from the graves of their foes. They died in their glory, surrounded by fame, And Victory's loud trump their death did proclaim; They are dead; but they live in each Patriot's breast, And their names are engraven on honor's bright crest.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Nature rejects the monarch, not the man; The subject, not the citizen; for kings And subjects, mutual foes, forever play A losing game into each other's hands, Whose stakes are vice and misery. The man Of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys. Power, like a desolating pestilence, Pollutes whate'er it touches; and obedience, Bane of all genius, virtue, freedom, truth, Makes slaves of men, and of the human frame A mechanized automaton.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I have beheld no day since the commencement of hostilities that I have thought her liberties in such eminent danger as at present. Friends and foes seem now to combine to pull down the goodly fabric as we have hitherto been raising at the expence of so much time, blood, and treasure; and unless the bodies politick will exert themselves to bring things back to first principles, correct abuses, and punish our internal foes, inevitable ruin must follow.
Without one friend, above all foes, Britannia gives the world repose.william cowper
Roused by the lash of his own stubborn tail, Our lion now will foreign foes assail.john dryden
We wonder if this can be really the close, Life's fever cooled by death's trance. And we cry, though it seems to our dearest of foes, "God give us another chance."
The private wound is deepest: O time most accurs'd 'Mongst all foes that a friend should be the worst.william shakespeare
A vest as admired Voltiger had on, Which from this Island's foes his grandsire won, Whose artful colour pass'd the Tyrian dye, Obliged to triumph in this legacy.
Behabiuor alone it is that creates friends and foes
A noble mind disdains to hide his head, And let his foes triumph in his overthrow.Robert Greene
