Conflict Quotes

Nine of the best book quotes about conflict
  1. #1
    “Never again would I allow myself to be made a foot soldier in a conflict I did not understand.”
  2. #2
    “Conflict transformation rather than...conflict resolution. To me, the latter suggests going back to a previous state of affairs, and has a connotation that there may be a winner or a loser. [Conflict transformation has] the opportunity to create something new.”
  3. #3
    “Two households, both alike in dignity
    In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
    Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
    A pair of star-cross’d lovers take their life
    Whose misadventured piteous overthrows
    Do with their death bury their parents’ strife.”
  4. #4
    “Where shall we three meet again in thunder, lightning, or in rain? When the hurlyburly ‘s done, when the battle ‘s lost and won”
  5. #5
    “My only love sprung from my only hate.”
  6. #6
    ″[W]ithout Richard Parker, I wouldn’t be alive today to tell you my story.”
  7. #7
    “Under the strain of this continually impending doom and by the sleeplessness to which I now condemned myself, ay, even beyond what I had thought possible to man, I became, in my own person, a creature eaten up and emptied by fever, languidly weak both in body and mind, and solely occupied by one thought: the horror of my other self.”
  8. #8
    “We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought.”
  9. #9
    “In the West, we have been withdrawing from our tradition-, religion- and even nation-centred cultures, partly to decrease the danger of group conflict. But we are increasingly falling prey to the desperation of meaninglessness, and that is no improvement at all.”
