Best Quotes about Conflict
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.
Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.
Nixon, Richard M.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
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.
To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.
The fibers of all things have their tension and are strained like the strings of an instrument.
Thoreau, Henry David
What people need and what they want may be very different.
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.
You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
Diana, Princess of Wales
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.
I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict.
What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.
Krutch, Joseph Wood
If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.
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.
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
A good swordsman is not given to quarrel.
Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.
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
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.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
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.
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.
The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is week. [Matthew 26:41]
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.
No man is hurt but by himself
Diogenes of Sinope
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb
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.
Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
The war existing between the senses and reason.
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 we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
Don't jump on a man unless he is down.
Dunne, Finley Peter
The easiest thing to find on God's green earth is someone to tell you all the things you cannot do.
DeVos, Richard M.
A man's own self is his friend. A man's own self is his foe.
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.
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.
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.
We are only falsehood, duplicity, contradiction; we both conceal and disguise ourselves from ourselves.
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 most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
Mckay, David O.
You are at enmity with yourself.
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.
For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. [(Romans 7:19]
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 enslaved by anything we do not consciously see. We are freed by conscious perception.
Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.
The archenemy is the arch stupid!
