As it happens, the phrase "know thy enemy" isn't in our Holy Quran, but it comes from the ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu. The full quote goes like this: "Know thy enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.

Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.

I never lie because I do not fear anyone. You only lie when you're afraid.

Legend says that when you can't sleep, it's because you're awake in someone's dream. So if everyone could stop dreaming about me, that would be great.
