Famous quotes containing the words forces and/or enemy:

    The most exciting happiness is the happiness generated by forces beyond your control.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    According to true military art, one should never push one’s enemy to the point of despair, because such a state multiplies his strength and increases his courage which had already been crushed and failing, and because there is no better remedy for the health of beaten and overwhelmed men than the absence of all hope.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)
