Conflict Quotes

Conflict is the beginning of consciousness.

M. Esther Harding

Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional.

Max Lucade

Adversity is a severe instructor, set over us by one who knows us better than we do ourselves, as he loves us better too. He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper. This conflict with difficulty makes us acquainted with our object, and compels us to consider it in all its relations. It will not suffer us to be superficial.

Burke

Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.

Barbara De Angelis

After a few (or many) bad relationships, its so easy to shut down, give up, and stop believing that the right person is out there for us. Our hearts yearn to fall in love, but our minds insist its not possible, and we enter into a tug-of-war with ourselves. Its as if one part of us is screaming, Yes! I deserve a great relationship! while another part insists, Ill never find him or her. When our beliefs contradict our desires, we experience an inner conflict that not only paralyzes us, but can actually prevent us from recognizing the possibilities for love that exist all around us.

Arielle Ford

Vertigo is the conflict between the fear of falling and the desire to fall.

Salman Rushdie

Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation.

Martin Luther King Jr

None of us can be free of conflict and woe. Even the greatest men have had to accept disappointments as their daily bread.

Bernard M. Baruch

One has to accept pain as a condition of existence. One has to court doubt and darkness as the cost of knowing. One needs a will stubborn in conflict, but apt always to the total acceptance of every consequence of living and dying.

Morris West

“A city has values as well as slums, excitement as well as conflict a personality that has not yet been obliterated by its highways and gas stations.”
