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

- Howard, Vernon
I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.

- Lisa Alther
No man is hurt but by himself

- Diogenes of Sinope
The final conflict will be between the Communists and the ex-Communists.

- Silone, Ignazio
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.

- Hopkins, Tom
Reason guides but a small part of man, and the rest obeys feeling, true or false, and passion, good or bad.

- Roux, Joseph
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
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
Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts.

- Freud, Sigmund
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.

- Seneca
Americans think of themselves collectively as a huge rescue squad on twenty-four-hour call to any spot on the globe where dispute and conflict may erupt.

- Cleaver, Eldridge
The torment of human frustration, whatever its immediate cause, is the knowledge that the self is in prison, its vital force and mangled mind leaking away in lonely, wasteful self-conflict.

- Drew, Elizabeth
Laws are felt only when the individual comes into conflict with them.

- Lafollette, Suzanne
The party of God and the party of Literature have more in common than either will admit; their texts may conflict, but their bigotries coincide. Both insist on being the sole custodians of the true word and its only interpreters.

- Raphael, Frederic
There is convincing evidence that the search for solitude is not a luxury but a biological need. Just as humans posses a herding instinct that keeps us close to others most of the time, we also have a conflicting drive to seek out solitude. If the distance between ourselves and others becomes too great, we experience isolation and alienation, yet if the proximity to others becomes too close, we feel smothered and trapped.

- Kottler, Jeffrey
If we knew all the laws of Nature, we should need only one fact, or the description of one actual phenomenon, to infer all the particular results at that point. Now we know only a few laws, and our result is vitiated, not, of course, by any confusion or irregularity in Nature, but by our ignorance of essential elements in the calculation. Our notions of law and harmony are commonly confined to those instances which we detect; but the harmony which results from a far greater number of seemingly conflicting, but really concurring, laws, which we have not detected, is still more wonderful. The particular laws are as our points of view, as, to the traveler, a mountain outline varies with every step, and it has an infinite number of profiles, though absolutely but one form. Even when cleft or bored through it is not comprehended in its entireness.

- Thoreau, Henry David
Love is a conflict between reflexes and reflections.

- Hirschfield, Mangnu
Modern science knows much about such conflicts. We call the mental state that engenders it ambivalence: a collision between thought and feeling.

- Seabury, David
We cannot really think in one way and act in another...

- Troward, Thomas
COMPROMISE, n. Such an adjustment of conflicting interests as gives each adversary the satisfaction of thinking he has got what he ought not to have, and is deprived of nothing except what was justly his due.

- Ambrose Bierce
