I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) American lawyer, politician, US President (1861-65)
(Attributed)

No early authority has been found citing this from Lincoln. However, in The Sociable Story-teller (1846), Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor 1410-1437, was quoted : "Do I not most effectually destroy my enemies, in making them my friends?"
