Best Quotes about Conflict
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
When our knowing exceeds our sensing, we will no longer be deceived by the illusions of our senses.
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.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
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.
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
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.
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
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
You are at enmity with yourself.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
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.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
You cannot perform in a manner inconsistent with the way you see yourself.
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
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 spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
More will mean worse.
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 know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
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.
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.
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.
Only by pride comes contention; but, with the well-advised is wisdom. [Proverbs 13:10]
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
Who digs a pit for others will fall in themselves.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
There are always two forces warring against each other within us.
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.
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
