Is it good to have enemies?

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."

-Winston Churchill


Agree, disagree?

I dunno. I have at least one enemy at my work that I did nothing to deserve. They make my life and my job more difficult. I don't find it to be a good thing in the least.

I don't know about enemies, but I think everyone should have a nemesis. You walk into a supermarket one day and there he is. Everything goes silent. No-one says a word. You haven't seen him since you battled at the theme park last spring. You drop the orange juice bottle in your hand. Everyone knows what has to happen now, except the girl your with, she whispers "Who's that?" and under your breath you say "My nemesis..." She backs away. Checkout girls spring out the door. It's on.

I dont think enemies are at all desirable or mean anything noble. The negatives of an enemy far outweigh any benefit by character building and other garbage, which is easily obtainable in less destructive ways.

I agree.

I'm a very outspoken person but I always try to get my point across without getting personal and trading insults.

There are people that I don't like and that don't like me too, but I would hardly call them ENEMIES. I don't wish them to come to any harm and I'm sure they feel the same.

I went to see the film 'the Libertine' recently and really loved this quote:

"You must acquire the trick of ignoring those who do not like you. In my experience those who do not like you fall into two catagories: the stupid and the envious. The stupid will like you in five years. The envious; never."

John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of Rochester (The Libertine, 2005)

Nobody with a mind, body, and soul chooses to have enemies.

We should all know where we differ, otherwise we'd get stabbed in the back for trusting someone too much.

most of us will never get enemies because of our opinion
just because of the way we express this opinion
