Conflict quotes
Conflict
Washing one's hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.

- Paulo Freire
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection.'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

- Thomas Paine
Soft data, hard conflicts.

- Kocher, Gerhard
For me, the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances, new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.

- Cary, Joyce
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.
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

- Thomas Paine
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
Like a ball bated back and forth, a human being is batted by two forces within.

- Upanishad, Yogabindu
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.

- Wilder, Thornton
What a country calls its vital economic interests are not the things which enable its citizens to live, but the things which enable it to make war. Petrol is much more likely than wheat to be a cause of international conflict.

- Simone Weil
Beautiful light is born of darkness, so the faith that springs from conflict is often the strongest and the best.

- Turnbull, R.
The war existing between the senses and reason.

- Pascal, Blaise
We gain our ends only with the laws of nature; we control her only by understanding her laws.

- Bronowski, Jacob
One, a robot may not injure a human being, or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm; Two, a robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law; Three, a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

- Isaac Asimov
Laws are felt only when the individual comes into conflict with them.

- Lafollette, Suzanne
Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict.

- William Ellery Channing
Heat and animosity, contest and conflict, may sharpen the wits, although they rarely do; they never strengthen the understanding, clear the perspicacity, guide the judgment, or improve the heart.

- Walter Savage Landor
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
In the frank expression of conflicting opinions lies the greatest promise of wisdom in governmental action.

- Louis D. Brandeis
Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts.

- Freud, Sigmund
