Friends can be potential enemies. Because they know too much about each other.
You can’t protect me, just protect yourself.
~Cha Eun Sung
Sometimes finding an excuse is helpful when you can’t bring up the courage.
Your enemies are not the ones who hold their sword against you.
They are the ones who stand by you with their daggers behind your back.
~Choi Young Do
