Conflict Quotes

In literature, conflict heightens the drama of the plot. However, in life, conflict is one of the main causes of all ills. Conflict is not necessarily physical confrontation. It can be anything, from giving a cold shoulder to someone to a verbal duel to mental subjugation and more. Conflict is one instinct that goes against rationality and logic. In animals, conflict is a part of survival but in humans, this instinct is suppressed by higher values. However, sometimes these higher values are inadequate to contain the ugly head of conflict from rearing, making it imperative to adopt various measures of conflict resolution. To get a wider perspective of this, read the conflict quotes given below.
