Conflict quotes

What people need and what they want may be very different.

- Hubbard, Elbert

One hour of thoughtful solitude may nerve the heart for days of conflict - girding up its armor to meet the most insidious foe.

- Percival

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.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon

I believe in getting into hot water. I think it keeps you clean.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.

Intimate or drastic elements in the work of others are untouchable and should not be commented upon even in their absence. Private conflicts, quarrels, sentiments, animosities are unavoidable in any human group. It is our duty towards creation to keep these in check in so far as they might deform and wreck the work process.

- Grotowski, Jerzy

Big pay and little responsibility are circumstances seldom found together.

- Hill, Napoleon

If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.

- Franklin, Benjamin

Strength alone knows conflict, weakness is born vanquished.

- Swetchine, Anne Sophie

We cannot really think in one way and act in another...

- Troward, Thomas

Feminism was recognized by the average man as a conflict in which it was impossible for a man, as a chivalrous gentleman, as a respecter of the rights of little nations (like little Belgium), as a highly evolved citizen of a highly civilized community, to refuse the claim of this better half to self-determination.

- Lewis, Wyndham

True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.

- Churchill, Winston

You are at enmity with yourself.

- Boehme, Jacob

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.

Insight into the two selves within a man clears up many confusions and contradictions. It was our understanding that preceded our victory.

- Howard, Vernon

Let us move from the era of confrontation to the era of negotiation.

- Nixon, Richard M.

What a man knows is everywhere at war with what he wants.

- Krutch, Joseph Wood

The Night in Isla Negra

Ancient night and the unruly salt
beat at the walls of my house.
The shadow is all one, the sky
throbs now along with the ocean,
and sky and shadow erupt
in the crash of their vast conflict.
All night long they struggle;
nobody knows the name
of the harsh light that keeps slowly opening
like a languid fruit.
So on the coast comes to light,
out of seething shadow, the harsh dawn,
gnawed at by the moving salt,
swept clean by the mass of night,
bloodstained in its sea-washed crater.

- Neruda, Pablo

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

Let us ever remember that our interest is in concord, not in conflict; and that our real eminence rests in the victories of peace, not those of war.

- Mckinley, William

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.

- Moustakas, Clark
