From a column written by EJ Dionne Jr at the Washington Post: Unearned Blessings


"The rule is: Make no gratuitous enemies," he said. "The key word is 'gratuitous'."

If you stand for something, you will always make enemies. That is part of the price of being principled. What you should avoid are entirely unnecessary fights that advance no cause but create bitter feelings. I’ll always think of it as a singularly important piece of political wisdom.
