Best Quotes about Conflict
The subconscious part in us is called the subjective mind, because it does not decide and command. It is subject rather than a ruler. Its nature is to do what it is told, or what really in your heart of hearts you desire.
Walsh, William T.
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
When our knowing exceeds our sensing, we will no longer be deceived by the illusions of our senses.
The people to fear are not those who disagree with you, but those who disagree with you and are too cowardly to let you know.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
This duality has been reflected in classical as well as modern literature as reason versus passion, or mind versus intuition. The split between the conscious mind and the unconscious. There are moments in each of our lives when our verbal-intellect suggests one course, and our hearts, or intuition, another.
Ornstein, Robert E.
What people need and what they want may be very different.
Reason and emotion are not antagonists. What seems like a struggle between two opposing ideas or values, one of which, automatic and unconscious, manifests itself in the form of a feeling.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
The war existing between the senses and reason.
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
The most dramatic conflicts are perhaps, those that take place not between men but between a man and himself -- where the arena of conflict is a solitary mind.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb
More will mean worse.
You are at enmity with yourself.
Why don't you want to do what you know you should do? The reason you don't is that you're in conflict with yourself.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
One might as well try to ride two horses moving in different directions, as to try to maintain in equal force two opposing or contradictory sets of desires.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
It is the eternal struggle between these two principles -- right and wrong. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time and will ever continue to struggle. It is the same spirit that says, You work and toil and earn bread, and I'll eat it.
It's when you're safe at home that you wish you were having an adventure. When you're having an adventure you wish you were safe at home.
Talk back to your internal critic. Train yourself to recognize and write down critical thoughts as they go through your mind. Learn why these thoughts are untrue and practice talking and writing back to them.
Mckain, Robert J.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed. It is just these intense conflicts and their conflagration which are needed to produce valuable and lasting results.
