Quote by Voltaire: “May God defend me from my friends: I can defend...”
“Lord, protect me from my friends; I can take care of my enemies.”
I came across a great quote recently that I had not seen in years, and it really challenged me and my core belief system as a person of faith. The ancient proverb reads, "The friend of my enemy, is my enemy. Whatever way you slice it, the two quotes mean that we would do well to associate ourselves with people who are aligned with our best interest and who protect our peace. If I am having an "issue" with someone, and it turns ugly, can "B," the mutual friend of us both, love us both, and stay loyal to us both without having to choose sides or get stuck in our mess? The answer from my perspective is: maybe. I am a total extroverted people person.
