- Collier, Robert
Conflict Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Conflict

1.
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.

2.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.

3.
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.
Moustakas, Clark

4.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
Franklin, Benjamin

5.
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
Bible

6.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
Bhagavad Gita

7.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
Schopenhauer, Arthur

8.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
Hill, Napoleon

9.
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.
Branden, Nathaniel

10.
What people need and what they want may be very different.
Hubbard, Elbert

11.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
Ziglar, Zig

12.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
Upanishad, Yogabindu

13.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
Howard, Vernon

14.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.

15.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.

16.
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.

17.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
Troward, Thomas

18.
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb

19.
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.
Howard, Vernon

20.
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.
Grant, Alistair

21.
More will mean worse.
Amis, Martin

22.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip

23.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
Bible

24.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
Carlyle, Thomas

25.
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.
Anderson, Marian

26.
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
Plato

27.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.

28.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope

29.
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
Kames, Lord

30.
Instead of suppressing conflicts, specific channels could be created to make this conflict explicit, and specific methods could be set up by which the conflict is resolved.
Low, Albert

31.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

32.
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

34.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

36.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
Bible

37.
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.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

38.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
Pascal, Blaise

39.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
Proverb, French

40.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter

41.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
Seneca

Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
Bible

43.
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David

44.
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.
Lincoln, Abraham
