Best Quotes about Conflict
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
We are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
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.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
You are at enmity with yourself.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
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.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
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.
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
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.
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.
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.
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
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.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
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
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.
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
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
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.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
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.
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.
