Gaining Strength From Our Adversaries

September 19, 2022 pwm1

Love your enemies, for they tell you your faults.

Benjamin Franklin (1778, by Joseph Duplessis, Public Domain)

While friends generally accept is as we are and are less likely to point out our faults, the same is not true of our rivals. From them, we can discover our weakest points—as that is generally where they attack—and improve upon our deficiencies. Our antagonists make us stronger.

—Mike Hazell
