An open foe may prove a curse, but a pretended friend is worse.
Michael made his debut in John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic, Halloween , possibly the best scare movie to come along in the last twenty-five years. ... [W]ith the release of the sixth (and hopefully final) movie to bear the Halloween moniker, we see how far the mighty have fallen. ... In the final analysis, The Curse of Michael Myers is a horrific motion picture just not in the way the film makers intended - Directed By Joe Chappelle.james berardinelli

By the Revolution the Germans have made themselves pariahs among the nations, incapable of winning allies, helots in the service of foreigners and foreign capital, and deprived of all self-respect. In twenty years' time, the German people will Curse the parties who now boast of having made the Revolution.erich ludendorff
They may veil their eyes, but they cannot hideThe sun’s meridian glow;The heel of a priest may tread thee down,And a tyrant work thee woe:But never a truth has been destroyed;They may Curse it, and call it crime;Pervert and betray, or slander and slayIts teachers for a time.But the sunshine aye shall light the sky,As round and round we run;And the truth shall ever come uppermost,And justice shall be done.charles mackay

Such taxes [upon the necessaries of life], when they have grown up to a certain height, are a Curse equal to the barrenness of the earth and the inclemency of the heavens; and yet it is in the richest and most industrious countries that they have been most generally imposed. No other countries could support so great a disorder.Adam Smith
I think I speak not too strongly when I say that a church in the land without the Spirit of God is rather a Curse than a blessing. If you have not the Spirit of God, Christian worker, remember you stand in somebody else's way; you are a tree bearing no fruit, standing where another fruitful tree might grow.charles haddon spurgeon
As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the Curse causeless shall not come.
The Curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength, each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.Simone de Beauvoir
A Wolf eats sheep but now and then; Ten thousands are devour'd by men. An open foe may prove a Curse, but a pretend friend is worse.john gay

The Curse of the middle-aged man was knowing or believing that he'd told all he had to tell. Soon as you suspect that, you started wanting something, anything, to prove it wasn't so: and that's where the mistakes started, when the bad things happened.michael marshall smith
No action, whether foul or fair, Is ever done, but it leaves somewhere A record, written by fingers ghostly, As a blessing or a Curse, and mostly In the greater weakness or greater strength Of the acts which follow it.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that Curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
The god of Moses would call for other tribes, including his favorite one, to suffer massacre and plague and even extirpation, but when the grave closed over his victims he was essentially finished with them unless he remembered to Curse their succeeding progeny. Not until the advent of the Prince of Peace do we hear of the ghastly idea of further punishing and torturing the dead.christopher hitchens
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country , and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show thee: And I will make of thee a great nation , and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and Curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
And virtue they will Curse, speaking harsh words.
