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.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Casa, Giovani della
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.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
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.
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
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.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
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 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.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.

Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
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.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope

You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales

Krutch, Joseph Wood
More will mean worse.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
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.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.

Kiley, John Cantwell
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
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.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.

Colton, Charles Caleb
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.

Walsh, William T.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
