Best Quotes about Conflict
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]
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
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.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
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 exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
What people need and what they want may be very different.
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...
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 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 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.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
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.
Commonly they must use their feet for defense whose only weapon is their tongue.
Sidney, Sir Philip
I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
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 are enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
What rights are those that dare not resist for them?
Tennyson, Lord Alfred
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
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.
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
A man can do what he wants, but not want what he wants.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
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.
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
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
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
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 fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
The war existing between the senses and reason.
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
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb
