A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on enemies, justice, mind, nobility, pride, and reason

Just as meekness is in all our virtues, so is pride in all our sins. Whatever its momentary and alluring guise, pride is the enemy, "the first of the sins." One reason to be particularly on guard against pride is that "the devilish strategy of Pride is that it attacks us, not in our weakest points, but in our strongest. It is preeminently the sin of the noble mind." Not only of the noble mind, but also of the semi-righteous.

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)

A Quote by Miyamoto Musashi on determination, enemies, fighting, life, spirit, and weakness

In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. . . . An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.

Miyamoto Musashi (1584 - 1645)

A Quote by Mechtild on compassion, enemies, friendship, god, justice, lies, and needs

Compassion means that if I see my friend and my enemy in equal need, I shall help both equally. Justice demands that we seek and find the stranger, the broken, the prisoner and comfort them and offer them our help. Here lies the holy compassion of God.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on enemies, evil, love, and world

Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies-or else? The chain reaction of evil-hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars-must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the abyss of annihilation.

Martin Luther King Jr (1929 - 1968)
