An old man who had led a sinful life was dying, and his wife
sent for a near-by preacher to pray with him.
The preacher spent some time praying and talking, and finally
the old man said: "What do you want me to do, Parson?"
"Renounce the Devil, renounce the Devil," replied the
"Well, but, Parson," protested the dying man, "I ain't in
position to make any enemies."
It is better to decide a difference between enemies than
friends, for one of our friends will certainly become an enemy and
one of our enemies a friend.—Bias.
The world is large when its weary leagues
two loving hearts divide;
But the world is small when your enemy is
loose on the other side.
