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

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

24.
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.

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

47.
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.

48.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
Pascal, Blaise

49.
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.
Jung, Carl

50.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
Troward, Thomas
