The days are gone forever when our enemies could blackmail us with nuclear bombs. -Kim Jong-un

Previous presidents, including great ones like Roosevelt, have used the IRS against their enemies. But I don't think Barack Obama ever wanted to be on the same page as Richard Nixon. -Joe Klein

I've forgiven all my enemies – even those who have stolen money from me. -Kevin McCloud

Even paranoids have real enemies. -Delmore Schwartz

I am not afraid of my enemies, but by God, you must look out when you get among your friends. -Cornelius Vanderbilt

A part of the placidity of the South comes from the sense of well-being that follows the heart-and-body-warming consumption of breads fresh from the oven. We serve cold baker's bread to our enemies, trusting that they will never impose on our hospitality again. -Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Democracy has many enemies, and the terrorist is only one of them. -Paul Johnson

The Cold War was a boring thing. Nobody gets better for it. Tremendous money is wasted. Our lives get more difficult. We look at each other as enemies. What's good in that?

A vibrant civil society can challenge those in power by documenting corruption or uncovering activities like the murder of political enemies. In democracies, this function is mostly performed by the media, NGOs or opposition parties. -Evgeny Morozov

The true enemies of Social Security and Medicare are those who defend an imploding status quo. -Mitch Daniels

There are always signs that a reign is ending, and they are usually spotted not in the king himself but in his court.

Devastation could arise insidiously, rather than suddenly, through unsustainable pressure on energy supplies, food, water and other natural resources. Indeed, these pressures are the prime 'threats without enemies' that confront us. -Martin Rees

I'm a very tough guy, and I fight hard, and I don't give up. And that makes me friends and that makes me enemies, and I know that. -Alan Dershowitz

The real enemies of our life are the 'oughts' and the 'ifs.' They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future. But real life takes place in the here and now. -Henri Nouwen

I've had my successes and failures. I know many academics in my field loathe me. I've come to loathe them back, as it seems only polite to do so. But at heart it's absurd; we should band together against the big common enemies. -Alain de Botton

My name is Imam Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, the former H. Rap Brown. I am a devoted servant of Allah, and an unwavering devotee to His cause. For more than 30 years, I have been tormented and persecuted by my enemies for reasons of race and belief. -H. Rap Brown

The lesson of 9/11 is that America is truly exceptional. We withstood the worst attack of our history, intended by our enemies to destroy us. Instead, it drew us closer and made us more united. Our love for freedom and one another has given us a strength that surprised even ourselves. -Rudy Giuliani

The military is faithful to the constitution. They will come in only to protect the people from the enemies of the state. -Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

The Book of Mormon exposes the enemies of Christ. It confounds false doctrines and lays down contention. -Ezra Taft Benson

Japan cannot conquer China with America in her rear, Soviet Russia on her right and England on her left – her most powerful enemies in the South Sea all flanking her. It is this international situation that constitutes one of Japan's great weaknesses. -Chiang Kai-shek

People have different relationships with power. I suppose a large portion of the 'Homeland' audience aligns with the U.S., sort of against the enemies. We certainly have the CIA viewpoint on the world – and it's their job. -Martin Donovan

Money has a way of trumping even the gravest of enemies over time. -Jim Oberweis

We must, all of us, learn actually not to have enemies, but only confused adversaries who are ourselves in disguise. -Alice Walker

All are my friends. I have no enemies. -Mahavira

After 9/11, most Americans were in no mood to talk with our enemies in the Middle East, whatever those enemies' ideology, and the Bush administration's policies of invasion and pre-emption reflected that sentiment. -Noah Feldman

Liberal Christianity, of course, has enemies, but they are everyone's enemies – sexism, racism, homophobia. But liberal versions of Christianity, which can be both theologically and politically conservative, assume that what it means to be Christian qua Christian is to have no enemies peculiar to being Christian. -Stanley Hauerwas

Why should Iran have a deterrent strategy? Well, it's surrounded by hostile enemies.

The prescription for endless war poses a far greater danger to Americans than perceived enemies do, for reasons the terrorist organisations understand very well. -Noam Chomsky

Historically, defense spending cuts have preceded increased international turmoil as America's global enemies sense a failure of will. -Ben Shapiro

Putin himself is a character out of fiction, an uber-macho former Soviet thug running a massive, expansionist kleptocracy. The man stages photographs riding horses barechested and hunting tigers. His enemies find themselves on the wrong end of radioactive poisoning. -Ben Shapiro

Benefit your friends; make sure your enemies suffer from being your enemies. -Louie Gohmert

Now, the people that helped get Obama elected, who think Israel is a good idea, need to wake up and tell him they're our friends, let's preserve them. And then it would happen. Because that's the only kind of thing he responds to. But he throws our friends under the bus and rewards our enemies. -Louie Gohmert

Space is as infinite as we can imagine, and expanding this perspective is what adjusts humankind focus on conquering our true enemies, the formidable foes: ignorance and limitation. -Vanna Bonta

In most cases, cables are marked secret not because the U.S. requires it but because those speaking to us – the foreign leaders across the table – do. They are not keeping secrets from us, but from two other groups: their enemies and their subjects. -Elliott Abrams

In a media culture, we not only judge strangers by how they look but by the images of how they look. So we want attractive pictures of our heroes and repulsive images of our enemies. -Virginia Postrel

Anyone that goes to battle goes to battle knowing the mindset and tactics of their enemies. -Brad Thor

When I was between 2 and 3 years old, I got to know my first non-human being. The non-human was a cocker spaniel named Baba. We weren't friends, Baba and I, nor enemies. He wasn't my dog. He belonged to the people my mother worked for, and he lived in the house with them and us. -Octavia E. Butler

The most vexing problem Israel faces is its relations with its neighbors. From the inception of the state until today, Israelis have felt besieged, surrounded by enemies who want to make them disappear. -Edgar Bronfman, Sr.

Cheney was among the best secretaries of defence the country has ever had. He was a very effective White House chief of staff.

Extremist perspectives win sympathy and recruits because they offer narratives that claim to identify deep injustices and enemies. -Jonas Gahr Store

For me, it's great to see 'Gateways' finally make it to the console. Think of it as 'Portal' meets 'Castlevania' as you try to put together your gateway gun before your lab becomes overrun with nasty enemies. -Rob Manuel

A good president needs a big comfort zone. He should be able to treat enemies as opportunities, appear authentic in joy and grief, stay cool under the hot lights. -Nancy Gibbs

Put two ships in the open sea, without wind or tide, and, at last, they will come together. Throw two planets into space, and they will fall one on the other. Place two enemies in the midst of a crowd, and they will inevitably meet; it is a fatality, a question of time; that is all. -Jules Verne

I'm definitely really proud of 'Frenemies.' That was something that I loved. -Mary Mouser

I care about public perception, yes. I don't care about my enemies' perception. -George Galloway

This is what we call smart power. Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one's enemies.

I'm just trying to do my best in the circumstances and am very happy for everyone else to do the same so I don't cultivate enemies. -Martin Bashir

We will build in Britain a cyber strike capability so we can strike back in cyber space against enemies who attack us, putting cyber alongside land, sea, air and space as a mainstream military activity. -Philip Hammond

True partisans draft legislation that gives themselves everything and their enemies nothing. They love bills that repulse and even disgust the other side. Today's politics have become an all-or-nothing, black-or-white, zero-sum game – it's not a contact sport but a blood sport. -Jim Cooper

Any politician who's ever been re-elected knows that friends come and go; enemies accumulate. -Jim Cooper

I hope to outlive my enemies. -William Sanderson

Letting the greens dictate your energy choices, whether it's halting the XL Pipeline or fracking in New York, isn't just bad economics. It can also leave your rivals and enemies controlling your energy destiny. -Arthur L. Herman

One's enemies are always talking about 'post-feminism.' It is a word invented by people who would like to do away with feminism. -Gloria Steinem

I had rather be plundered by my enemies than by my friends. -Henry IV

I have lots of friends, but I'm probably a terrible friend to all of them, even my family. I wouldn't be surprised if I found myself with no friends later on in life. My friends become my enemies. -Ariel Pink

The enemies are not so much from without as from within the race. -Marcus Garvey

Real men laugh at opposition; real men smile when enemies appear. -Marcus Garvey

You know, the truth is this: it is a leader's job to challenge the status quo. And when you do, you make enemies. -Carly Fiorina

I've been fighting amidst a lot of opposition from both Hillary Clinton as well as some Republicans who wanted to send arms to the allies of ISIS. ISIS rides around in a billion dollars worth of U.S. Humvees. It's a disgrace. We've got to stop – we shouldn't fund our enemies, for goodness sakes. -Rand Paul

We need to have a national security that puts steel in front of our enemies. I would send weapons to Ukraine. I would work with NATO to put forces on the eastern border of Poland and the Baltic nations, and I would reinstate, put in place back in the missile defense system that we had in Poland and in the Czech Republic. -Scott Walker

I used to give out Mickey Mouse awards to people. I like Mickey Mouse because he represented certain values. He invested in people, was good to his friends and hard on his enemies. Once a year, I would have our management team from each division come to an offsite, and I would talk about Mickey Mouse. -Bernard L. Schwartz

Men, once enemies, are now jointly governing in Northern Ireland. And although there have been several hitches, by and large it's working well. -Betty Williams

I die adoring God, loving my friends, not hating my enemies, and detesting superstition. -Voltaire

Nothing has been left undone by the enemies of freedom. Every art and artifice, every cruelty and outrage has been practiced and perpetrated to destroy the rights of man. In this great struggle, every crime has been rewarded and every virtue has been punished. -Robert Green Ingersoll

They who gain applause and power by pandering to the mistakes, the prejudices and passions of the multitude are the enemies of liberty. -Robert Green Ingersoll

When you're trying to lose weight, one of the most important things you can do is eat three decent meals a day so that you're not so hungry that you can't get food off your mind. Habit and hunger have long been the basic, insidious enemies of the overweight. We can't fight hunger, but we can fight habit. -Jean Nidetch

If someone asked, 'Would you prefer to be thought of as St. Michael as opposed to the devil,' I might say St. Michael. But that choice is not really there, because you are in an environment in which you have natural predators and enemies. -Michael Ashcroft

The Americans will never solve the Indian problem till the Indian is extinct. They have treated them after a fashion which has intensified their treachery and 'devilry' as enemies, and as friends reduces them to a degraded pauperism, devoid of the very first elements of civilization. -Isabella Bird

I am beginning to have more powerful enemies and more envious ones, too. -Francisco Goya

My reputation was built on hostility. I had no friends and some very virulent enemies in the old-guard art scene when I began. They threw their heavy artillery against me. They were convinced I was perverting the public taste. -Betty Parsons

I like quoting 'Lord of the Rings': 'My list of allies grows thin! My list of enemies grows long!' -Ronda Rousey

The days of the revolution now give place to the period of regular organization, liberty, and prosperity, which that revolution guarantees. Thus, when everything concurs for the pacification of internal troubles, the threats of the enemies of France must, in the face of the public happiness, appear even to themselves insensate. -Marquis de Lafayette

It is necessary above all that the citizens, who have rallied round the constitution, should be assured that the rights it guarantees will be respected with such a scrupulous fidelity as will reduce to despair its enemies, hidden or avowed. -Marquis de Lafayette

When it shall be known that, at the time which I was accused of wishing to sunder this island from France – my benefactress – I repeated the oath of fidelity to her, I take pleasure in believing that the government I own, and my fellow-citizens, will render me the justice I merit, and that the enemies of my brethren will be reduced to silence. -Toussaint Louverture

What I'm saying is, 'Look, life is a long thing, and I don't need enemies. I need friends just like Donald Trump.' -Corey Lewandowski

People like to invent enemies. It spares us the need to address complex worldviews. -Yair Lapid

We in the Joint List are living proof that Arabs and Jews refuse to be enemies. -Ayman Odeh

Something that truly frustrates me is the impression in Israel that when you are talking about security, you are bold; you are tough: this is what we need against all the enemies that we have. And when someone is talking about peace, you know, it's the naive left wing, soft. -Tzipi Livni

The enemies of freedom are waging an all-out assault on the Second Amendment to the Constitution, which we have sworn to protect and defend. -Jeff Duncan

Obama's foreign policy has three parts: Abandon our allies, appease our enemies, and apologize for America. -Liz Cheney

Our adversaries no long fear us, and our enemies are plotting against us. -Michael McCaul

We have entered a new phase in Islamist terror. Fifteen years after 9/11, our enemies have regained their momentum. -Michael McCaul

You don't make peace with your friends. You make peace with your enemies. -Rula Ghani

The real Amazons were long believed to be purely imaginary. They were the mythical warrior women who were the archenemies of the ancient Greeks. Every Greek hero or champion, from Hercules to Theseus and Achilles, had to prove his mettle by fighting a powerful warrior queen. -Adrienne Mayor

I was the most important person of the world, and people like the Pope would be just like enemies, who would try to put me down in some way or another, or the president. People are always selling the idea that people who have mental illness are suffering. -John Forbes Nash, Jr.

I think the part of my acting career where I've been more successful, I've been incredibly cushioned. People are much too nice to you. You go into politics, and people are absolutely brutal. You've got proper enemies, and they're vicious. It's very invigorating. -Hugh Grant

I'd been going to the Louvre since 1951. I thought I knew Paris and the French, but I didn't really. You know how easy it is to make friends when you are traveling. People are curious about you, you are curious about them. But you never really make friends that way. After the Louvre, I discovered that I have friends now because I have enemies. -I. M. Pei

The enemies cannot destroy the king who has at his service the respect and friendship of the wise men who can find fault, disagree, and correct him. -Thiruvalluvar

As governor of my country, I have been an enemy to its enemies. -William Wallace

I took an oath of office to protect Arizona from all enemies, foreign and domestic. -Doug Ducey

When you're playing football, and your enemies are there, you don't have a lot of time to think to yourself. You've got stuff to handle. You've got places to be, meetings to go to, bigger fish to fry. You really don't attack the emotional side of your life. -Stefon Diggs

Every dollar added to the price of oil weakens America and strengthens her enemies. -Robert Zubrin

Every dollar cut from the price of oil weakens the enemies of freedom and strengthens America. -Robert Zubrin

A man who has made no enemies is probably not a very good man. -Antonin Scalia

I have never been bewildered for long in any fight with our enemies – I was Armed with Insight. -Jim Mattis

I will not call that person happy who knows no rest because of his enemies, who is the butt of fun by all and for whom no one has any empathy, who is as if held on a leash by others, who has lost himself in hedonistic pursuits, who preys on those weaker to him and wags his tail for his superiors. -Munshi Premchand

Concerned about re-election, interest-group reactions, the media, or fundraising, many legislators have found it in their interest to refuse to cooperate with members of the opposing party – or to treat them as enemies in some kind of war, in which the whole point is to defeat and humiliate them. But the American people have been the real losers. -Cass Sunstein

Trump is more performance artist than zealot. But he's finding enemies everywhere, whether they are judges of Mexican ancestry, parents of those killed in war, the current president, or children of immigrants. Whether or not he has a sense of decency, he is in grave danger of losing it. -Cass Sunstein

Our enemies and allies alike must know that aggressors will pay an unspeakable price for challenging the United States. The best way to impose that price is global military dominance. -Tom Cotton

Politicians love to beat up on guys that are seen to be public enemies, if you will. That's a great way to get elected. -Martin Shkreli

The enemies of acting are mood and attitude and other general homogenized disruptive entities. Whereas acting is about action – doing – and unless you can figure out a way to craft in an imaginative reality to which you don't submit, you're going to be out of control. You'll flip out. The job is to be surprised. -William Hurt

The idea is to go to bed every night with fewer enemies than you had in the morning. -David Petraeus

The central problem in Syria is that Sunni Arabs will not be willing partners against the Islamic State unless we commit to protect them and the broader Syrian population against all enemies, not just ISIS. -David Petraeus

The reason that Islamist militants can assert that jihad is necessary against the perceived enemies of Islam is that there is sufficient ammunition in the Quran to buttress their beliefs. The same could also, of course, be said for the Old Testament, which is full of scenes of violent death visited on the enemies of God. -Peter Bergen

There is no hint that Trump wishes to engage in or to foment violence against the enemies, such as immigrants, he has identified as undermining the American way of life. -Peter Bergen

Like the attack on Pearl Harbor, another hinge event in American history, 9/11 was a great tactical victory for America's enemies. But in both these cases, the tactical success of the attacks was not matched by strategic victories. Quite the reverse. -Peter Bergen

Adding to your list of enemies is never a sound strategy, yet ISIS' ferocious campaign against the Shia, Kurds, Yazidis, Christians, and Muslims who don't precisely share its views has united every ethnic and religious group in Syria and Iraq against them. -Peter Bergen

Nowadays, it is no longer possible to maintain that the Nazi-Soviet pact of 23 August 1939 was a fiction invented by bourgeois-imperialist enemies.

Liberals would prefer it if the bald eagle on the Great Seal was holding olive branches in both talons, or, better, an olive branch in one, and maybe a soft cushion in the other, to entice our enemies to lie down and snooze. -Mike Gallagher

Be loyal to those who are loyal to you. And respect everyone, even your enemies and competition. -John Cena

As a former Commander, I gave an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. As a state senator, I gave that same oath. As a Congressman, I gave an oath to defend the Constitution. There are some things that are not negotiable: Faith, my family, and the Constitution are dead center. It is nonnegotiable to me. -Ryan Zinke

Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to anyone who serves honourably. I think it's despicable that a president would put veterans on his website and list them on an enemies list. -Ryan Zinke

Freedom of ideas and communications is one of the things we are fighting for, and our enemies are fighting against. -Elmer Davis

President Reagan has no enemies in the Phillipines. -Ferdinand Marcos

I love fighting back. I love finding allies, and – famously – I enjoy making enemies. -Andrew Breitbart

You pray for your enemies. -Colm Wilkinson

Some time ago, I made a basic decision about the way in which I was going to live the little of life available to me The idea was to place myself in the presence of only those people who give off the warm, friendly vibrations which soothe the coating on my nerves. Life never was long enough to provide time for enemies. -Jimmy Breslin

When the enemies' land force is once conquered and expelled from the continent, our Marine will rise as if by enchantment and become, within the memory of persons now living, the wonder and envy of the world. -John Paul Jones

I propose not our enemies as an example for our general imitation, yet, as their navy is the best regulated of any in the world, we must, in some degree, imitate them and aim at such farther improvement as may one day make ours vie with – and exceed – theirs. -John Paul Jones

Do you not know that the largest trees, which have required years to grow, are cut down in one hour? It is foolish to look for their fruits and yet to be unprepared for their fall. Let it be your consolation, then, that God's enemies, however honorable and exalted they may have been, shall nevertheless fade away like the smoke. -Thomas Becket

To indiscriminately cast all law enforcement as enemies of our communities is to engage in an attempt to divide our nation by turning Americans against each other. -Thom Tillis

I jokingly say that the enemies are children, you know. I always say, if you have young kids, your whole goal from the moment they wake up is to make them tired. It's exhausting. Anybody who's got kids knows what I'm talking about. -Maz Jobrani

Using vehicles as weapons is a tactic that has often used by Palestinian terrorists to target Israelis, but in 2014, an ISIS spokesman had encouraged such vehicular attacks in the West, saying of ISIS' enemies, 'Run him over with your car.' -Peter Bergen

I don't care about my legacy. It's too late. My enemies will create it, and they'll push it. -Roger Ailes

When I was a kid, what captivated me about detective fiction were the puzzles more than the detectives or their enemies. And as I've gotten older, I see a lot of merit in setting your investigative sights higher than figuring out how someone stole Encyclopedia Brown's bicycle. -Mark Waid

Trump has more understanding and insight than his opponents realize. For a man such as Trump to risk acquiring so many powerful enemies and to risk his wealth and reputation, he had to have known that the people's dissatisfaction with the ruling establishment meant he could be elected president. -Paul Craig Roberts

History has proved that the most ardent enemies have settled their differences through talks and not war. -Shehbaz Sharif

I am one of the baddest enemies anybody can have. -Bruce Rauner

Frenemies are worse than enemies, and it's not just in the workplace. -Adam Grant

If you're making enemies along the way, you're going to limit the ability for yourself to be successful in advancing your causes. -Steve Scalise

I have watched men suffer the anguish of imprisonment, defy appalling human cruelty… break for a moment, then recover inhuman strength to defy their enemies once more. -John McCain

On Putin's order, Russia intervenes in Syria not to fight terrorists but to abet the war crimes of the Assad regime. Russian bombers deliberately target aid workers and hospitals. They threaten Syrian freedom fighters trained by the U.S. They are allied with our enemies in the Middle East and trying to weaken our friendships there. -John McCain

Jews must be able to live with enemies and defend themselves from them. The hatred for Israel has not disappeared. -Yitzhak Shamir

'Hairspray' maybe did change people's minds, and that's how you get your political enemies to change their minds – by making them laugh and making them look at something in a way they haven't seen it. Not by preaching and cutting them off and being a separatist. -John Waters

Civil rights activists and union activists shared not just common values and objectives but also common enemies. -Tom Perez

If nothing else, the cyber attacks that occurred during the 2016 presidential election have laid bare the very real vulnerabilities that exist across our government and the private sector. Imagine the harm that could be done if our enemies ever hack into the Department of Defense or Homeland Security. -Mike Quigley

Israel has good reason to be concerned about its intelligence making its way to Moscow: Russia is a major player in the war in Syria on Israel's northern border, where it has also become a close ally of Iran and Hezbollah, Israel's sworn enemies. -Ronen Bergman

Trump is in the White House, fulminating on Twitter, messing up foreign policy, mistaking critics for enemies, refusing to immediately and unequivocally condemn neo-Nazis, racists, and other assorted goons – and, in general, failing to provide the nation with a scintilla of moral leadership. This will last until it can't any longer. -Richard Cohen

The Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated media outlets in Egypt tried to sour the ties between our two countries, but our ties are very strong. No negative stance has been taken by either side against the other. Rumors are being spread by the enemies of our two countries. We pay no attention to them. -Mohammad bin Salman

To some degree, I don't think 'Batman' works in a completely modern city; I think Gotham has be reflective of his personality and those of his enemies. -Paul Dini

Batman gets close to the insanity of Gotham, to the craziness, to what drives that city mad, and not be driven mad himself – or, at least, most of the time he isn't. That's most like the mission of the C.I.A. We get into the heads of our enemies without becoming our enemy. -Tom King

Generations of thinkers have made typewriters their frenemies, and long before there were Gmail inboxes, print correspondence stacked up, some hastily written and impulsive on the steel gadgets. -Mary Pilon

Thinking through how you look to your enemies is helpful. That doesn't mean that your ideology is wrong and theirs is right, but maybe you have to recognise that they have one – and that it may be logically coherent. Which may be uncomfortable. -Mary Beard

I think 2016 will be an absolutely pivotal year for our nation, and I'm running against Michael Bennet because I think he's dangerous. He doesn't understand the enemies that we face. -Jon Keyser

If we keep on raking up the past, you can never work with anybody. You will always be fighting against your enemies, and that is bad. -Mahathir Mohamad

Some of those 10, nine-year vets, they know some things that your typical college senior wouldn't. I've come across some guards in the NFL that know how to use their hands better than D-linemen in college. I guess they've learned from their enemies. -Mike Daniels

Essential to the self-image of conservatives is the notion that they are enemies of an established orthodoxy, insurgents against the dogmatic political correctness that predominates on the Left. -Jacob Weisberg

People who live in hermit states like North Korea, Burma, and Cuba already suffer from global isolation. Fed on a diet of propaganda, they don't know what's happening inside their borders or outside of them. By increasing their seclusion, sanctions make it easier for dictators to blame external enemies for a country's suffering. -Jacob Weisberg

I see so many women thinking other women are their enemies – especially when they don't have a job or a guy or whatever. It's like, 'I don't have what I want, and she does, so she must be my enemy.' I find it confusing and not fair and sad. -Noel Wells

Daddy taught us through his philosophy of nonviolence, which placed love at the centerpiece, that through that love we can turn enemies into friends. Through that love, we can create more dignified atmospheres. -Bernice King

It is important to remember that if we treat people who could be allies as enemies, we can only alienate them from our cause. -Karamo Brown

In the 20th century, we built a lot of walls – we endlessly tried to build walls between us and people we perceived, correctly or incorrect, as our enemies. In the 21st century, because of the advent of networks, the free movement of goods and people across the globe, we need to build security by building bridges instead of building walls. -James G. Stavridis

Those who criticize Putin are not human: they are my personal enemies. -Ramzan Kadyrov

Everything in our world tends to be built on either/ors, and either/ors inevitably make enemies. -Genesis P-Orridge
