Conflict Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Conflict

1.
More will mean worse.
Amis, Martin

2.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
Bible

3.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.

4.
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

5.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip

6.
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.
Hopkins, Tom

7.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
Seneca

8.
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

9.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
Howard, Vernon

11.
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
Kames, Lord

12.
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

13.
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb

14.
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.

15.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

16.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
Bronowski, Jacob

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

18.
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

19.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della

20.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
Bible

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter

24.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
Hill, Napoleon

25.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
Upanishad, Yogabindu

26.
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.
Collier, Robert

27.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
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

29.
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
Howard, Vernon

30.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
Roux, Joseph

31.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales

32.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood

33.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
Ziglar, Zig

34.
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

35.
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

36.
You are at enmity with yourself.
Boehme, Jacob

37.
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

38.
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
Yogananda, Paramahansa

39.
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]

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

What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred

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

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

45.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.

46.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

47.
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

48.
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.

49.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
Seabury, David

50.
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.
