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.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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
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
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
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.
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
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.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
What people need and what they want may be very different.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
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.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
More will mean worse.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The war existing between the senses and reason.
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.
You are at enmity with yourself.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.

To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
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.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
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.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
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.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
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.
