Thought of the day – the enemies within

Those who do not mean their country well, especially those in disguise, will do all they can to weaken it. A combination of malevolence and incompetence creates a perfect blend of enemies within. The most potent force to bring down nations.

Be wary of them, for they come with open arms. Offering you comfort from harsher times, which are often created by existing weakness in national leadership. But if you choose comfort over perseverance, you will lose all in the process and it will be too late till you realize your folly.

Do not drink from their chalice, for it is poisoned and wrought with danger – more deadly than the arrows of the enemies at your gates. Their sweet songs can cut down giants and topple gods – you are just a mere mortal. Be on your guard.
