You are at enmity with yourself.
Best Quotes about Conflict
The split in you is clear. There is a part of you that knows what it should do, and a part that does what it feels like doing.
Kiley, John Cantwell
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
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.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
More will mean worse.
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.
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.
The war existing between the senses and reason.
As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be down there to hold him down, so it means you cannot soar as you otherwise might.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
Have a dialogue between the two opposing parts and you will find that they always start out fighting each other until we come to an appreciation of difference, ... a oneness and integration of the two opposing forces. Then the civil war is finished, and your energies are ready for your struggle with the world.
Perls, Frederick Salomon
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
You are at enmity with yourself.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
The term up has no meaning apart from the word down. The term fast has no meaning apart from the term slow. In addition such terms have no meaning even when used together, except when confined to a very particular situation... most of our language about the organization and objective's of government is made up of such polar terms. Justice and injustice are typical. A reformer who wants to abolish injustice and create a world in which nothing but justice prevails is like a man who wants to make everything up. Such a man might feel that if he took the lowest in the world and carried it up to the highest point and kept on doing this, everything would eventually become up. This would certainly move a great many objects and create an enormous amount of activity. It might or might not be useful, according to the standards which we apply. However it would never result in the abolishment of down.
Arnold, Thurman W.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
I'm not a combative person.My long experience has taught me to resolve conflict by raising the issues before I or others burn their boats.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
Remember that when you meet your antagonist, to do everything in a mild agreeable manner. Let your courage be keen, but, at the same time, as polished as your sword.
Sheridan, Richard Brinsley
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
We must become acquainted with our emotional household: we must see our feelings as they actually are, not as we assume they are. This breaks their hypnotic and damaging hold on us.
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.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
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.
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.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
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.
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.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
