Best Quotes about Conflict
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
More will mean worse.
What people need and what they want may be very different.
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.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
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
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.

The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
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.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
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.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
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.
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.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
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.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
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.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
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.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
You are at enmity with yourself.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
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.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
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.
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.
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.
