He makes no friend who never made a foe.


  • Cursed be the verse, how well soe’er it flow,
  • That tends to make one worthy man my foe.
  • Pope.

  • Alike reserved to blame, or to commend,
  • A timorous foe and a suspicious friend.
  • Pope.

  • A foe to God was ne’er true friend to man,
  • Some sinister intent taints all he does.
  • Young.
