A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on conflict, enemies, friendship, and nonviolence

It is the acid test of nonviolence that in a nonviolent conflict there is no rancor left behind, and in the end the enemies are converted into friends.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

A Quote by Frederick Osborn on conflict, danger, desires, experience, generations, life, time, traditions, understanding, and wisdom

The great truths of human life do not spring new born to each new generation. They derive from long experience. They are the gathered wisdom of the race. They are renewed in time of conflict and danger. If the times in which we are now living do not bring a fuller understanding of the great traditions of the Western European peoples and an almost Messianic desire to affirm them, we are not worthy of that heritage.

A Quote by Franklin Delano Roosevelt on authority, conflict, force, men, and work

Put two or three men in positions of conflicting authority. This will force them to work at loggerheads, allowing you to be the ultimate arbiter.

A Quote by Frank Hyneman Knight on conflict, people, and power

Large scale collective bargaining . . . is merely a seductive name for bilateral monopoly, and means either adjudication of conflicts in terms of power, or deadlock and stoppage, usually injuring outside people more than the immediate parties to the dispute.

A Quote by Mary Flannery O'Connor on conflict, freedom, integrity, and lies

Does one's integrity ever lie in what he is not able to do? I think that usually it does, for free will does not mean one will, but many wills conflicting in one man. Freedom cannot be conceived simply.

A Quote by Evelyn Underhill on conflict, conviction, death, difficulty, future, ideas, interest, life, needs, possessions, practicality, rules, soul, spirit, spirituality, success, trying, and worry

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests, cluttered up by possessions, distracted by ambitions, passions, wants and worries, beset by a sense of our own rights and importance, or anxieties for our own future, or longings for our own success, we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The soul's house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction - not merely the idea - that the demand of the Spirit, however inconvenient, rules the whole of it, will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

A Quote by Dr. David Seabury on conflict, feeling, science, and thought

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