Best Quotes about Conflict
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.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
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.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
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.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
What people need and what they want may be very different.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
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.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
More will mean worse.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
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.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
When our knowing exceeds our sensing, we will no longer be deceived by the illusions of our senses.
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
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
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.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
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
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.
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.
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.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
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.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
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 archenemy is the arch stupid!
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
