Hopefully "enemies" that you're still friendly with, but wise words none the less...
Standing Up - Often attributed to Churchill, this thought was originally expressed by the French author Victor Hugo in Villemain (1845), as follows: "You have enemies? Why, it is the story of every man who has done a great deed or created a new idea. It is the cloud which thunders around everything that shines. Fame must have enemies, as light must have gnats. Do not bother yourself about it; disdain. Keep your mind serene as you keep your life clear."
