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.
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
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
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.
The world is made up, for the most part, of fools and knaves , both irreconcilable foes to truth.villiers, george, 2nd duke of buckingham
My candle burns at both ends; It will not last the night; But, ah, my foes, and, oh, my friends It gives a lovely light.
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
To draw around the whole nation the strength of the General Government, as a barrier against foreign foes,… to equalize and moderate the public contributions, that while the requisite services are invited by due renumeration, nothing beyond this may exist to attract the attention of our citizens from the pursuits of useful industry, nor unjustly to burthen those who continue in those pursuits these are functions of the General Government on which you have a right to call.
The world is made up, for the most part, of fools and knaves, both irreconcilable foes to truth.
Orcs will often pursue foes for many leagues into the plain, if they have a fallen captain to avenge.
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
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.
D'Alembert was always surrounded by controversy. ... he was the lightning rod which drew sparks from all the foes of the philosophes. ... Unfortunately he carried this... pugnacity into his scientific research and once he had entered a controversy, he argued his cause with vigour and stubbornness. He closed his mind to the possibility that he might be wrong...jean le rond d'alembert
The deadliest enemies of nations are not their foreign foes; they always dwell within their borders. And from these internal enemies civilization is always in need of being saved. The nation blest above all nations is she in whom the civic genius of the people does the saving day by day, by acts without external picturesqueness; by speaking, writing, voting reasonably; by smiting corruption swiftly; by good temper between parties; by the people knowing true men when they see them, and preferring them as leaders to rabid partisans or empty quacks.william james
