Peace cannot be achieved; they have to be plucked out of their pod.
Alaric Hutchinson
Conflict forces us to be fully present because it shatters our ego
Amanda Craig
Family is all politics. Everyone hates each other's guts, if they're honest… Most brothers and sisters try to top each other, given the chance; you always get the worst wars in countries with big families….People have kids because they go soft in the head, tarts especially. They forget what it's like to be a kid themselves and want to remember through their own. They don't want us, not real brand-new people who puke and criticise and tell them to bog off: they want their own frigging innocence back. They want to have their own lives back again, with the bad bits taken out. Quite frankly, they'd be better off with a dog.
Ana Claudia Antunes
She was born under the sign of Gemini. And that stands for the good and evil twin. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde both hiding and residing inside her heart. Her good twin was not bad at all. But her evil twin was even better, and showed up to be way too fatal!

Take caution when declaring war because you may believe it will be easy, but war will always end in despair.
Anthony Ryan
Only in war does the madman become sane.

Unless one lives and loves in the trenches, it is difficult to remember that the war against dehumanization is ceaseless.

Christopher Hitchens
What better way for a ruling class to claim and hold power than to pose as the defenders of the nation.
Cormac McCarthy
He remembered Alejandra and the sadness he'd first seen in the slope of her shoulders which he'd presumed to understand and of which he knew nothing and he felt a loneliness he'd not known since he was a child and he felt wholly alien to the world although he loved it still. He thought that in the beauty of the world were hid a secret. He thought the world's heart beat at some terrible cost and that the world's pain and it's beauty moved in a relationship of diverging equity and that in this headlong deficit the blood of multitudes might ultimately be exacted for the vision of a single flower.
Criss Jami
The love of conflict is most evident when opposing forces join sides to defeat the peacemaker.
Criss Jami
Those who live as though God sets the rules are not going by their own rules. That is the self-sacrifice, or selflessness, that peace more often than not requires. Those who insist on going by their own rules cannot make that sacrifice. They are the steady adherents of (global) conflict because they are forever fighting both themselves and others to do whatever they think that they want to do.
Criss Jami
You have to lift a person up before you can really put them in their place.
Criss Jami
Peaceful disputes are maintained when men sincerely believe that they are morally, logically correct about the issues at hand. It is when neither side is really certain that wars are instigated.
Criss Jami
There are 2 kinds of fighters: those who fight because they hate, and those who fight because they love.
Criss Jami
Peace ought not be regarded the height of civilization, else like barbarians we forever battle for peace.
Criss Jami
Those who stand for different causes during different generations often experience the same oppositions and the same difficulties as those of the previous and the next generations. That is the basis of history repeating itself.
Criss Jami
It always seems as though the definition of love will remain debatable by an opinionated world.
Criss Jami
These days when Christians bicker they exaggerate passion into a legalistic belief and prosperity into a lukewarm belief.
Criss Jami
Together, we form a necessary paradox; not a senseless contradiction.
Dada Bhagwan
What kind of a stage should we attain? One where our intellect becomes such that it never creates conflict within our home. Everything else is acceptable but there must never be any inner conflict.
Dada Bhagwan
Enmity [Revengeful Karma] is the main seed of conflict [clash].
Dada Bhagwan
Merely by doing darshan of just one kashay free person, one's paap (sins; demerit karmas) get washed away! There can be no kashay-free person other than a Gnani.
Dada Bhagwan
Our talk is right and the other person's talk is wrong, however if a conflict occurs, then it is wrong.
Dada Bhagwan
What does syadvad (speech that does not hurt the ego of any living being) speech say? Speak in such a way that 5 people benefit from it and that it does not interfere [conflict] with anyone.
Dada Bhagwan
Where there is conflict, there is no God.
DaShanne Stokes
People turned against each other cannot turn against those responsible.
DaShanne Stokes
We must acknowledge and take responsibility for the conflicts we have helped to create, and act to create real change. That, after all, is the true hallmark of democracy--a commitment to justice, honest self-appraisal, and action--even when it means challenging ourselves and the political institutions we hold most dear.
DaShanne Stokes
The more we're thrown into conflict with each other through engineered distrust, the less able we are to unite against those responsible.
David Levithan
I can see that the sadness has returned. And it's not a beautiful sadness- beautiful sadness is a myth. Sadness turns our features to clay, not porcelain.
DeBorrah K. Ogans
It is not what we feel that gets us in to trouble. It is how we express how we feel that causes conflict.
Donna Goddard
We draw into our life those who will help us to grow. Naturally, we tend to have mixed feelings about those very people but they are marked for us. We have forgotten that we wrote them an invitation some time ago. We look at them as if they are intruders when all along they are our guests.
Donna Goddard
Relationships are used by the darkness to keep people revolving around the ego's demands. For a moment, people see the light of the divine in each other. They run to it and then quickly forget the light they once saw as their fears reclaim their consciousness. Thus begins the ongoing battle to protect one's own 'rights', in case they be forgotten or betrayed. The tally of what is owed is counted, the guilt of perceived wrong doings is cast upon the other, one's freedom must be paid as the price for 'love', and it is only in short periods of peace when all of this is forgotten. Those moments are the precious windows of the Soul.
Donna Goddard
You can turn every ugly and damaging drama into a genuine blessing by seeing it differently. No one is suffering on purpose. We learn to give up the pleasure we feel in self-righteously blaming others. Healing happens when we see things differently. The question is: do you want suffering or peace? It's that simple.
Donzella Michele Malone
I have a self-made quote: Celebrate diversity, practice acceptance and may we all choose peaceful options to conflict.
Dorothy Thompson
Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict -- alternatives to passive or aggressive responses, alternatives to violence.
E.M. Forster
Why can't we be friends now? said the other, holding him affectionately. It's what I want. It's what you want. But the horses didn't want it
Edward Rutherfurd
So does nobody care about Ireland?Nobody. Neither King Louis, nor King Billie, nor King James. He nodded thoughtfully. The fate of Ireland will be decided by men not a single one of whom gives a damn about her. That is her tragedy.

Come with me and take back your lives!
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
If you think the world is full of darkness, let us see your light. If you think the world is full of wickedness, let us see your goodness. If you think people are acting wrongly, let us see your right action. If you think people don't know, let us see what you know. If you think the world is full of uncaring people let us see how you care about people. If you think life is not being fair to you, let us see how you can be fair to life. If you think people are proud, let us see your humility. We can easily find fault and we can easily see what is wrong but a positive attitude backed by a right action in a true direction is all we need to survive in peace and harmony in the arena of life
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
The best antidote to the woes of the world is the right education! The world is full of several woes because education has not yet arrested them. The world is full of tricksters because education has not yet educated them. The world is full of ill health because education has not yet presented the best panacea. The world is full of depression because education is not entertaining the scholars. The world is full of several deviations because education is watching without taking action. When the right education arises with the right lessons, wrong education vanishes with wrong lessons!
Eunice Parisi-Carew
Perceive conflict as positive, creative, and issue driven. Don't allow personal attacks.
Eunice Parisi-Carew
The key to handling conflict is to make sure people understand it's okay to have an opposing view.
Fennel Hudson

Read this first volume and you'll want to finish the next two--300,000 words in total--with the first 90,000 setting the stage for a life-affirming masterpiece, and characters you will never forget!
Frederick Neuhouser
One does not ask about one's true identity simply as a matter of course, but only in rather special circumstances. What this means, I believe, is that who I really am becomes an issue for me only when my system of values breaks down, that is, only when I realize that the values according to which I have lived until now are insufficient to inform a life that I can recognize as satisfying. This realization can occur in variety of circumstances: when my beliefs about myself or the world undergo significant change; when I find that two of my values conflict in a fundamental way; or when, as in the present example, the relations among my previous commitments are insufficiently determinate to tell me what to do in the particular situation I face.
Fredrik Backman
In the beginning the queen had been a courageous and fair-minded princess very much liked by all, but unfortunately she grew up and became a frightened adult, as adults tend to be. She started loving efficiency and avoiding conflict. As adults do.
Gerald G. Jampolsky
I found the Course essential in my struggle for personal transformation. It helped me recognize that I really did have a choice of experiencing peace or conflict, and that this choice is always between accepting truth or illusion.
Helene Deschamps-Adams
Was it really worth it? I wondered again.I wanted to believe it had been but could not help feeling cynical about how history repeats itself. There still were the same political intrigues, the hate groups that thrive on terror and human misery and I knew that there were enough egos and self-indulging crusaders to fuel another war, and another...
Henrik Ibsen
To live is to war with trolls.
Herman Melville
Now, as you well know, it is not seldom the case in this conventional world of ours - watery or otherwise; that when a person placed in command over his fellow-men finds one of them to be very significantly his superior in general pride of manhood, straightway against that man he conceives an unconquerable dislike and bitterness; and if he have a chance he will pull down and pulverize that subaltern's tower, and make a little heap of dust of it.
Hermann Hesse
The world had been divided into two parts that sought to annihilate each other because they both desired the same thing, namely the liberation of the oppressed, the elimination of violence, and the establishment of permanent peace.
Holly Black
I need you to be happy. I need one of us to be happy.
Horace Mann
Do not think of knocking out another person's brains because he differs in opinion from you. It would be as rational to knock yourself on the head because you differ from yourself ten years ago.
Isaac Asimov
Every period of human development has had its own particular type of human conflict---its own variety of problem that, apparently, could be settled only by force. And each time, frustratingly enough, force never really settled the problem. Instead, it persisted through a series of conflicts, then vanished of itself---what's the expression---ah, yes, 'not with a bang, but a whimper,' as the economic and social environment changed. And then, new problems, and a new series of wars.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you create an environment of conflicts, I don't think you will enjoy peace yourself.
Israelmore Ayivor
If you see a leader solving one conflict wisely, remember he is working hard to prevent 10 of such from happening!
Israelmore Ayivor
If you promote peace and progress for others, I don't think you will have sleepless nights.
Izzeldin Abuelaish
The thing is, you cannot ask people to coexist by having one side bow their heads and rely on a solution that is only good for the other side. What you can do is stop blaming each other and engage in dialogue with one person at a time. Everyone knows that violence begets violence and breeds more hatred. We need to find our way together. I feel I cannot rely on the various spokespersons who claim they act on my behalf. Invariably they have some agenda that doesn't work for me. Instead, I talk to my patients, to my neighbors and colleagues--Jews, Arabs--and I find out they feel as I do: we are more similar than we are different, and we are all fed up with the violence.
James S.A. Corey
That's what peace is, right? Postponing the conflict until the thing you were fighting over doesn't matter.
Jean-Yves Leloup
In certain situations, manifesting anger is the right attitude; in others it is not the right thing to manifest because it will only add to the violence. In the first case, anger unblocks the conflict and causes another to become more conscious. In the latter, it only adds to the unconsciousness and inflames the conflict. (73)
John Bowlby
The stark nakedness and simplicity of the conflict with which humanity is oppressed - that of getting angry with and wishing to hurt the very person who is most loved.
John F. Baddeley
As long as the forest stood the Tchetchens were unconquerable... and it is literally the fact that they were beaten in the long run not by the sword but by the axe.
John F. Baddeley
Hospitality, as with all the mountain tribes, was - and is still - a most sacred duty; and the man who would slay a chance-met traveller without pity or remorse for the sake of trifling gain, would lay down his life for the very same individual were he to cross his threshold as even an unbidden guest.
John F. Baddeley
...and to this day the rare traveller who knows the language and customs even of the worst of the tribes is safer amongst them than in the neighbouring Cossack settlements.
John F. Baddeley
It may be said without exaggeration that the mountains made the men; and the men in return fought with passionate courage and energy in defence of their beloved mountains, in whose fastnesses, indeed, they were well-nigh unconquerable.
John Steinbeck
All war is a symptom of man's failure as a thinking animal.
John William Draper
The history of Science is not a mere record of isolated discoveries; it is a narrative of the conflict of two contending powers, the expansive force of the human intellect on one side, and the compression arising from traditionary faith and human interests on the other.
Kamand Kojouri
I don't know why everyoneis still trying to find out whether heaven and hell exist.Why do we need more evidence?They exist here on this very Earth.Heaven is standing atop Mount Qasiounoverlooking the Damascene sightswith the wind carrying Qabbani'sdulcet words all around you.And hell is only four hours away in Aleppo where children's cries drown out the explosions of mortar bombsuntil they lose their voice,their families, and their limbs.Yes, hell certainly does existright now, at this moment,as I pen this poem. And all we're doingto extinguish this hellfireis sighing, shrugging, liking, and sharing.Tell me: what exactly does that makeus? Are we any better than the gatekeepers of hell?
Kamand Kojouri
Don't say to yourself, 'Everyone argues!' to justify and normalise your fighting, when the most natural thing is to love.
Kate McGahan
If there's anyone we are sure to learn something from, it's the one who pushes our buttons.
Kazuo Ishiguro
Perhaps one day, all these conflicts will end, and it won't be because of great statesmen or churches or organisations like this one. It'll be because people have changed. They'll be like you, Puffin. More a mixture. So why not become a mongrel? It's healthy.
Kelsey Brickl
The war dragged on, as wars tend to do.
Kilroy J. Oldster
The ongoing struggle to achieve a profound harmony between the deepest and most conflicting impulses of human beings instates the murkiness of my soul. The battle against the amorphousness of sin and depravity, and seeking unity and clarity, trace their origins to the primeval fire that launched humanity. This ancient warfare for control of the soul allows me to create myself. Because of the primordial inconsistences between ecstasy and reason, I am the repentant artist of my being. I am a beardless, sensuous, and androgynous sculptor, the redeemer and the transformer of my naked self.
L. Ron Hubbard
Ideas and not battles mark the forward progress of mankind.
Lailah Gifty Akita
Oppression is opposition.
Lailah Gifty Akita
We may have different points of arguments from perspectives of belief, faith and religion.But we must not hate each other. We are one human family.
Lao Tzu
In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, don't try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.
Lisa Bevere
We've learned that sometimes a lack of conflict in a marriage means you are not fighting for it. There are times you must battle to become one.
Lisa Bevere
We do not fight to tear down but to build up.
Lois Lowry
It's hard to give up the being together with someone.
Mahatma Gandhi
An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.
Mary Midgley
The symbolism of meat-eating is never neutral. To himself, the meat-eater seems to be eating life. To the vegetarian, he seems to be eating death. There is a kind of gestalt-shift between the two positions which makes it hard to change, and hard to raise questions on the matter at all without becoming embattled.
Michael Bassey Johnson
Division and separation means no harm to the society. It makes everyone unique.
Michael Bassey Johnson
Insurgence and all forms of evil in a society doesn't describes her as a failure, but vividly shows a lack of love for one another.
Michael Holbrook
In times of conflict, we're all peers.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
We usually learn from debates that we seldom learn from debates.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Millions of business people are each constantly forced to choose between their desire to not be a bad person and their desire to be a good business person, that is to say, to make as much money as they possibly can by maximizing their revenue while minimizing the cost of producing whatever it is that they sell.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
We seldom learn much from someone with whom we agree.

What he wanted to say was that two thousand years of peace could be undone in a month of war.

Peace is not just the absence of conflict; peace is the creation of an environment where all can flourish regardless of race, color, creed, religion, gender, class, caste or any other social markers of difference.
Ngina Otiende
Marriage is meant to keep people together not just when things are good, but particularly when they are not. That's why we take marriage vows - not wishes

Obviously it was happenstance, but it did change my opinion of human nature. I now saw war as a constant, akin to wildfires. They break out unless you work actively to prevent them. It's an atavistic thing, buried deep in our DNA.
Richard Eyre
Resolution, like responsibility, is a product of ownership, and kids can't resolve a conflict until they figure out how they contributed to it.
