Aphorism 19 / Others / Enemies and Criticism 


Criticizing your enemies does them a favor unless the insult physically worsens their situation in some manner. By criticizing them you give them an opportunity to learn from their mistaken ways. They may even improve because of you pointed insights and sharp tongue. Do not do your enemy the favor of helping him with your wit…unless that wit can cause real damage that improves your position in relation to his.
