14 Enemy Quotes from Literature

An enemy might at any time become a friend, but while an enemy was an enemy he should be trodden on and persecuted. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope It is easy to love one's enemy when one is making fine speeches; but so difficult to do so in the actual everyday work of life. ~ Framley Parsonage by Anthony Trollope "Give me honorable enemies rather than ambitious ones, and I'll sleep more easily by night." ~ A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin He who is mistaken in an action which he sincerely believes to be right may be an enemy, but retains our esteem. ~ The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne But the truth was that he died from solitude, the enemy known but to few on this earth, and whom only the simplest of us are fit to withstand. ~ Nostromo by Joseph Conrad Memory is man's greatest friend and worst enemy. ~ Romany of the Snows by Gilbert Parker "I know nothing of philosophical philanthropy. But I know what I have seen, and what I have looked in the face in this world here, where I find myself. And I tell you this, my friend, that there are people (men and women both, unfortunately) who have no good in them--none. That there are people whom it is necessary to detest without compromise. That there are people who must be dealt with as enemies of the human race. That there are people who have no human heart, and who must be crushed like savage beasts and cleared out of the way." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "Yes. He is quite a good fellow - nobody's enemy but his own." ~ David Copperfield by Charles Dickens A good soldier in an enemy's country should everywhere and at all times be on the alert. It has been one of the rules of my life, and if I have lived to wear grey hairs it is because I have observed it. And yet upon that night I was as careless as a foolish young recruit who fears lest he should be thought to be afraid. ~ The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Of all the great battles in which I had the honour of drawing my sword for the Emperor and for France there was not one which was lost. At Waterloo, although, in a sense, I was present, I was unable to fight, and the enemy was victorious. It is not for me to say that there is a connection between these two things. You know me too well, my friends, to imagine that I would make such a claim. But it gives matter for thought, and some have drawn flattering conclusions from it. ~ The Adventures of Gerard by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
