Perls, Frederick Salomon
Those that are the loudest in their threats are the weakest in their actions.
Colton, Charles Caleb
No man ever did a designed injury to another, but at the same time he did a greater to himself.
A quarrel is quickly settled when deserted by one party; there is no battle unless there be two.
I cannot divine how it happens that the man who knows the least is the most argumentative.
Casa, Giovani della
The days are too short even for love; how can there be enough time for quarreling?
What people need and what they want may be very different.
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.
The war existing between the senses and reason.
More will mean worse.
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.

I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. [2 Timothy 4:7]
The effect of violent dislike between groups has always created an indifference to the welfare and honor of the state.
Macaulay, Thomas B.

If we cannot end our differences at least we can make the world safe for diversity.
Kennedy, John F.
