A Quote by Annie Dillard on world, enemy, and admiration

Admire the world for never ending on you as you would admire an opponent, without taking your eyes off him, or walking away.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, enemy, victory, forces, and opposition

The generals have a saying:
"Rather than make the first move
it is better to wait and see.
Rather than advance an inch
it is better to retreat a yard."

This is called
going forward without advancing,
pushing back without using weapons.

There is no greater misfortune
than underestimating your enemy.
Underestimating your enemy
means thinking that he is evil.
Thus you destroy your three treasures
and become an enemy yourself.

When two great forces oppose each other,
the victory will go
to the one that knows how to yield.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Dhammapada The Buddha on self-mastery, think, thought, mind, trouble, follow, wheel, ox, car, world, speech, action, pure mind, happiness, shadow, enemy, mastered, and unguarded

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with an impure mind
And trouble will forllow you
As the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind
And happiness will follow you
As your shadow, unbreakable.

How can a troubled mind
Understand the way?

Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.

But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother.

Dhammapada The Buddha

A Quote by John Ashcroft on war, enemy, and terrorist

In this new war, our enemy’s platoons infiltrate our borders, quietly blending in with visiting tourists, students, and workers. They move unnoticed through our cities, neighborhoods, and public spaces. They wear no uniforms. Their camouflage is not forest green, but rather it is the color of common street clothing. Their tactics rely on evading recognition at the border and escaping detection within the United States. Their terrorist mission is to defeat America, destroy our values and kill innocent people.

A Quote by Bono on spirit, religion, god, and enemy

I often wonder if religion is the enemy of God. It's almost like religion is what happens when the Spirit has left the building.
