The Luke 11:21 is a nice sentiment, but out of context.

Most scholars believe that this verse refers to Satan and the next verse:

Quote
11:22
But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

Refers to Jesus.   I'm not ready to hang my hat on 11:21

But I think 2 Samuel 22:38: I have pursued mine enemies, and destroyed them; and turned not again until I had consumed them should be Israel's motto right now.

Context is everything. 
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
-William Pitt, British Prime-Minister (1759-1806)

Context is everything.
Context and understanding the speech pattern and tendencies of Jesus. Oh, and let's not forget the sticky difficulties in translation. Power and meaning is still there, but the parables go much deeper than the simple literal reading.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.
