The space in a needle’s eye is sufficient for two friends, but the whole world is scarcely big enough to hold two enemies.
~ Solomon Ibn Gabirol
If we could read the secret history of our enemies we should find in each man’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Not all conflict is bad! Since God has created us as unique individuals, human beings will often have different opinions, convictions, desires, perspectives, and priorities. Many of these difference are not inherently right or wrong; they are simply the result of god-given diversity and personal preferences. When handled properly, disagreements in these areas can stimulated productive dialogue, encourage creativity, promote helpful change, and generally make life more interesting. Therefore, although we should seek unity in our relationships, we should not demand uniformity.
~ Ken Sande, in The Peacemaker
A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one is truly vanquished.
~ Friedrich Schiller
The greatest conflicts are not between two people, but between one person and himself.
~ Garth Brooks
