Best Quotes about Conflict
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.
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
More will mean worse.
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
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
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.
You are at enmity with yourself.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
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.
The war existing between the senses and reason.
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.
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.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
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.
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
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.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
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
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.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
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.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
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
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.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
