Whosoever formeth an intimacy with the enemies of his friends, does so to injure the latter. O wise man! wash your hands of that friend who associates with your enemies.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Consider an enemy may become a friend.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Our enemies are our outward consciences.
      - William Shakespeare

'Tis death to me to be at enmity;
  I hate it, and desire all good men's love.
      - William Shakespeare

O cunning enemy that, to catch a saint,
  With saints dost bait thy hook: most dangerous
    Is that temptation that doth goad us on
      To sin in loving virtue.
      - William Shakespeare, Measure for Measure
         (Angelo at II, ii)

Be advised.
  Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot
    That it do singe yourself. We may outrun
      By violent swiftness that which we run at,
        And lose by overrunning.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Norfolk at I, i)

I do believe
  (Induced by potent circumstances) that
    You are mine enemy; and make my challenge
      You shall not be my judge.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (Katherine at II, iv)

You are not to be taught
  That you have many enemies that know not
    Why they are so, but like to village curs
      Bark when their fellows do.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (King Henry at II, iv)

In cases of defense 'tis best to weigh
  The enemy more mighty than he seems.
    So the proportions of defense are filled;
      Which of a weak and niggardly projection
        Doth, like a miser, spoil his coat with scanting
          A little cloth.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Dauphin at II, iv)

Setting aside his high blood's royalty,
  And let him be no kinsman to my liege,
    I do defy him and I spit at him,
      Call him a slanderous coward and a villain;
        Which to maintain, I would allow him odds
          And meet him, were I tied to run afoot
            Even to the frozen ridges of the Alps,
              Or any other ground inhabitable
                Where ever Englishman durst set his foot.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Mowbray at I, i)

A thing devised by the enemy.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at V, iii)

  It will let in and out the enemy
    With bag and baggage.
      - William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale
         (Leontes at I, ii)

It would be a rarity worth seeing could any one show us such a thing as a perfectly reconciled enemy.
      - Bishop Robert South

Earth could not hold us both, nor can one heaven
  Contain my deadliest enemy and me.
      - Robert Southey,
        Roderick, the Last of the Goths
         (bk. XXI)

A malicious enemy is better than a clumsy friend.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Everybody has enemies. To have an enemy is quite another thing. One must be somebody in order to have an enemy. One must be a force before be can be resisted by another force.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

One enemy can do more hurt than ten friends can do good.
      - Jonathan Swift, quoted in a letter

An enemy despised is the most dangerous of all enemies.

No tears are shed when an enemy dies.

Treat your friend as if he might become an enemy.
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

The body of a dead enemy always smells sweet.
  [Fr., Le corps d'un ennemi mort sent toujours bon.]
      - attributed to Vespasian (Titus Flavius Vespasianus),
