Be Merciless with Your Enemies
April 21, Day 111/365
The Daily Laws by Robert Greene, Pg. 143
The remnants of an enemy can become active life those of a disease or fire. Hence, these should be exterminated completely. One should never ignore an enemy, knowing him to be weak. He becomes dangerous in due course, like the spark of fire in a haystack. — Kautilya, Third Century B.C.
