Foe Quotes

Quote of the Day


Heat not a furnace for your foe so hot
That it do single yourself
View quotes by William Shakespeare

If you can walk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man, my son!
(Rewards and Fairies 1910, 'If-')

But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -
