"Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer." Tell me, WHY would you, as an individual, want to keep your enemies closer?

I thought of this saying out of the blue. So, then I started to wonder: WHY would I want to keep such people closer to me than my own friends? My answer? I wouldn't. I mean, keeping friends close, that's one thing, but to keep my enemies closer? Not in this life time.

    the reason why i disagree with you is because the reason someone would want to keep their friends close and their enemies closer is because you never know when your enemy will want to kill you. That's just my opinion.

    You want your enemies closer so you can always keep an eye on them.

    When your enemies get closer we get to know them better and judge their moves.
    Besides that, when you get closer you may forget your enemity and become friends...:)

    I think you misunderstand the saying.

    It's just saying that it's good to know what your enemys are up to because they are the one's who are against you. You don't need to know what your friends are going to do as much because you can trust that they will do the right thing by you.

    A true friend stabs you in the front.

    You keep your enemies close so you know what they are planning to do to you. Its called "Watch and Learn"

    Because when you don't like somebody, you don't want to get to know them. right?

    Well, if you get closer to them and get to know them, you'll see a new person, someone you won't get to see, if your not close to that person, maybe you'll become friends, instead of enemies. Get it?

    Well. . . This quote means :
    If yew REALLY REALLY Dislike that Person. Get to know her and her Weaknesses.
    Then hurt her REAL Bad When yew know it's the time. Either Emotionally Or Physically. x3
    But Getting to know her well is also Maybe a CHANCE Fer yew to be friends with her ;)
    It's just another Chance, More like faith is giving Yew Second thoughts x3 Get it? :DD
