conflict

For me, the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil, man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in, a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world, but a dangerous one, full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances, new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
During the last century, and part of the one before, it was widely held that there was an unreconcilable conflict between knowledge and belief.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If work and leisure are soon to be subordinated to this one utopian principle -- absolute busyness -- then utopia and melancholy will come to coincide: an age without conflict will dawn, perpetually busy -- and without consciousness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You do not become a dissident just because you decide one day to take up this most unusual career. You are thrown into it by your personal sense of responsibility, combined with a complex set of external circumstances. You are cast out of the existing structures and placed in a position of conflict with them. It begins as an attempt to do your work well, and ends with being branded an enemy of society.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Feminism was recognized by the average man as a conflict in which it was impossible for a man, as a chivalrous gentleman, as a respecter of the rights of little nations (like little Belgium), as a highly evolved citizen of a highly civilized community, to refuse the claim of this better half to self-determination.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Instead of suppressing conflicts, specific channels could be created to make this conflict explicit, and specific methods could be set up by which the conflict is resolved.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The need to express oneself in writing springs from a mal-adjustment to life, or from an inner conflict which the adolescent (or the grown man) cannot resolve in action. Those to whom action comes as easily as breathing rarely feel the need to break loose from the real, to rise above, and describe it... I do not mean that it is enough to be maladjusted to become a great writer, but writing is, for some, a method of resolving a conflict, provided they have the necessary talent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most dramatic conflicts are perhaps, those that take place not between men but between a man and himself -- where the arena of conflict is a solitary mind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The conflict between the men who make and the men who report the news is as old as time. News may be true, but it is not truth, and reporters and officials seldom see it the same way. In the old days, the reporters or couriers of bad news were often put to the gallows; now they are given the Pulitzer Prize, but the conflict goes on.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Those laws, being forged for universal application, are in perpetual conflict with personal interest, just as personal interest is always in contradiction with the general interest. Good for society, our laws are very bad for the individuals whereof it is composed; for, if they one time protect the individual, they hinder, trouble, fetter him for three quarters of his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It's a very, very fascinating story for me, cause it's about a man who's been doing bad; bad things. And he's a father of four children in parochial school, he's a lieutenant of detectives, but he's in conflict with himself and with trying to do what's right.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]

Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [looking at Regan on the monitor screen] It looks like a type of disorder that you rarely ever see anymore, except in primitive cultures. We call it a somnambuliform possession.
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [Regan has welts on her face and is screaming] Quite frankly, we don't know much about it except that it's starts with some conflict or guilt that eventually leads to the patient's delusion that his body's been invaded by an alien intellegence; a spirit if you will.
Chris MacNeil: Look, I'm telling you again and you'd better believe it, I'm not about to put her in a goddamn asylum! And I don't care what you call it! I'm not putting her away!
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: I'm sorry.
Chris MacNeil: You're sorry. Christ, eighty-eight doctors and all you can tell me is all of your bullshit...
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: There is one outside chance of a cure. I think of it as shock treatment. As I say, there is an outside chance...
Chris MacNeil: Will you just name it, for God's sake? What is it?
Male Doctor: Do you have any religious beliefs?
Chris MacNeil: No.
Female Doctor: What about your daughter?
Chris MacNeil: No, why?
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: Have you ever heard of exorcism?
Dr. Barringer, Clinic Director: [Chris looks at him baffled] It's a stylized ritual in which rabbis or priests try to drive out the so-called invading spirit. It's pretty much discarded these days, except by the Catholics who keep it in the closet as a sort of embarrassment. It has worked, in fact, although not for the reason they think, of course. It was purely the force of suggestion. The victim's belief in possession helped cause it; and just in the same way this belief in the power of exorcism can make it disappear.
Chris MacNeil: You're telling me that, I should take my daughter to a witch doctor? Is that it?More [10/22/2007 12:10:00]
Kaffee: [Kaffee is questioning Kendrick about Dawson's refusal to discipline PFC Curtis Bell, which led to his bad pro-con report rating] Lt. Kendrick, was Lance Corporal Dauson given a below average rating on this last report because you learned he had been sneaking food to Private Bell?
Capt. Ross: Object!
Judge Randolph: Not so fast. Leutenant?
Lt. Kendrick: Lance Corporal Dawson was given a below average rating because he had committed a crime.
Kaffee: A crime? What crime did he commit? Leutenant? Dawson brought a hungry guy some food... what crime did he commit?
Lt. Kendrick: He disobeyed an order!
Kaffee: And because he did. Because he exercised his own set of values. Because he made a decision about the welfare of another Marine which was in conflict with an order of yours he was punished. Isn't that right.
Lt. Kendrick: Lance Corporal Dawson disobeyed an order!
Kaffee: Yeah, but it wasn't a real order, was it? I mean it's peace time. He wasn't being asked to secure a hill or advance on a beach head. Surely a Marine of Dawson's intelligence can be trusted to determine, on his own, which are the really important orders and which orders might, say, be morally questionable? Leutenant? Can he? Can Dawson determine on his own which orders he's going to follow?
Lt. Kendrick: No, he cannot.
Kaffee: A lesson he learned after the Curtis Bell incident, am I right?
Lt. Kendrick: I would think so.
Kaffee: You know so don't you, Leutenant.
Capt. Ross: Object!
Judge Randolph: Sustained.
Kaffee: Leutenant Kendrick, one final question. If you had order Dawson to give Santiago a code red...
Lt. Kendrick: [Interrupting] I specifically ordered those men not...
Lt. Kendrick: ...would it be reasonalble to think he would have disobeyed you again?
Capt. Ross: Leutenant, don't answer that question!
Kaffee: You don't have to, I'm through.
Capt. Ross: Leutenant Kendrick, did you order Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey to give Willie Santiago a code red? Leutenant, did you...
Lt. Kendrick: No, I did not!More [11/05/2007 12:11:00]
Joey Zasa: I earned that territory with my talent. The commission gave it to me. You approved.
Michael Corleone: Yes.
Vincent Mancini: Hey, Uncle Mike, I'm just here for the party. I didn't come here to ask for help. I could just kill this bastard. He's the one who should be asking for help.
Michael Corleone: Then kill him. What does this have to do with me?
Vincent Mancini: Well, he's going around your back saying "fuck Michael Corleone." That's what it has to do with you.
Vincent Mancini: [to Zasa] Say it to his face one time. ONE TIME!
Joey Zasa: Mr. Corleone, all bastards are liars Shakespear wrote poems about them.
Vincent Mancini: What am I gonna do with this guy. WHAT!
Michael Corleone: Joey, if there is someone going around this city saying "fuck Michael Corleone" what do we do with a piece of shit like this? He's a fuckin' dog.
Joey Zasa: Yes, if someone were to say such a thing they would not be a friend, they would be a dog.
Michael Corleone: My interests don't conflict with Mr. Joe Zasa's.
Vincent Mancini: Oh yes they do, Uncle Mike. More than you know.
Connie: Michael, he needs your support!
Vincent Mancini: Hey, Uncle Mike, don't make me work for this guy no more. I come work for you.
Michael Corleone: For me? As what? A tough guy? I don't need tough guys. I need more lawyers. Joey, since we have no conflicts no debts I accept your tribute. I wish you well. Vincent, come make your peace with Mr. Joe Zasa.
Joey Zasa: [Vincent hugs Zasa] Bastarde.
Michael Corleone: [Vincent bites Zasa's ear and Zasa's is taken out of the office] Jesus! Shut it, shut it, shut it.
Vincent Mancini: Hey Uncle Mike this wasn't the time for this. I mean, I know you're into bankers and Wall Street and your word is gold but I just want to protect you from this guy and your lawyers can't do that.
Michael Corleone: But you can.
Vincent Mancini: Yeah, I can.
Michael Corleone: And why should I be afraid of Joe Zasa?
Vincent Mancini: Because he knows you're keeping him from moving up in the commission. I say we make him dead. You give the word and I'll take care of it myself.
Michael Corleone: Maybe you should come with me for a few weeks. See what happens. See how much you learn. Then, we'll talk about your future.
Vincent Mancini: I won't let you down.
Michael Corleone: Alright, go on.More [12/26/2007 12:12:00]

Jessica: You don't appreciate the chaos and absurdity of life on this planet. You don't understand irony, or ethnicity, or eccentricity, or poetry, or the simple joy of being a regular at the diner on your block. I love that. You don't drink coffee or alcohol. You don't over eat. You don't cry when you're alone. You don't understand sarcasm. You plod through life in a neat, colorless, caffeine free, dairy free, conflict free way. I'm bold and angry and tortured and tremendous and I notice when someone has changed their hair part, or when someone is wearing two very distinctly different shades of black or when someone changes the natural temperment of their voice on the phone. I don't give out empty praise. I'm not complacent or well-adjusted. I can't spend fifteen minutes breathing and stretching and getting in touch with myself. I can't spend three minutes finishing an article. I check my answering machine nine times every day and I can't sleep at night because I feel that there is so much to do and fix and change in the world, and I wonder every day if I am making a difference and if I will ever express the greatness within me, or if I will remain forever paralyzed by muddled madness inside my head. I've wept on every birthday I've ever had because life is huge and fleeting and I hate certain people and certain shoes and I feel that life is terribly unfair and sometimes beautiful and wonderful and extraordinary but also numbing and horrifying and insurmountable and I hate myself a lot of the time. The rest of the time I adore myself and I adore my life in this city and in this world we live in. This huge and wondrous, bewildering, brilliant, horrible world.More [06/16/2008 12:06:00]
Dr. Mark Hamilton:
[on unsolved murder and perfect crime] Laws of chance are overwhelmingly against it, so are the laws of human nature. You see a murderer's whole safety depends upon a complication of lies. If he had no motive, no access, if his alibi is perfect, even if he feels no remorse, think of the strain he endures in knowing one error would be his undoing. That if he is forgetful enough to conflict one of his statements, his act of innocence is unconvincing in any details, if he so much as talks in his sleep.

Admiral:
And so today you are full-fledged ensigns. Three short months ago you assembled here from all parts of the nation, from all walks of life: field, factory, office and college campus. Each of you knew what the fighting was about, or you wouldn't have volunteered. Each of you knew that the American way of life must be defended by life itself. From here on your education must continue in the more demanding school of actual war. Wearing the gold stripe of ensign in the United States Navy, you go down to the sea to fight in the toughest conflict of all time.

Bene. Don Corleone. I need a man who has powerful friends. I need a million dollars in cash. I need Don Corleone and all of those politicians that you carry around in your pocket like so many nickels and dimes.



Don Corleone:
What is the interest for my family?



Sollozzo:
Thirty percent. In the first year your end should be 3, 4 million dollars and then it would go up.



Don Corleone:
And what is the interest for the Tattalgia family?



Sollozzo:
[to Tom] My compliments. I'll take care of the Tattalgia's, out of my share.



Don Corleone:
So, I am to receive thirty percent for finance, for legal protection and politcal influence, is that what you're telling me?



Sollozzo:
That's right.



Don Corleone:
Why come to me? What have I done to deserve such generousity?



Sollozzo:
If you consider a million dollars in cash merely finance... te salud Don Corleone.



Don Corleone:
I said that I would see you because I had heard that you were a serious man. A man to be treated with respect but I must say no to you and I will give you my reasons. It's true, I have a lot of friends in politics. But they wouldn't be so friendly if they knew my business was drugs instead of gambling which they consider a harmless vice but drugs, that's a dirty business.



Sollozzo:
Don Corleone...



Don Corleone:
It doesn't make any difference to me what a man does for a living, you understand, it's just that your business is a little dangerous.

Oh, now, are you telling me that the Tattaglia's guarantee our investment without...



Don Corleone:
Wait a minute... I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I spoil them as you can see. They talk when they should listen. Anyway, Signor Sollozzo, my no to you is final. I want to congratulate you on your new business and I'm sure you'll do very well and good luck to you. Especially since your interests don't conflict with mine. Thank you.

Del Boy:
Especially when they saw you walking up the gangplank!



Uncle Albert:
So our old skipper, Captain Kenworthy, used to allay all those fears by creating a counter-worry. Like one day he announced there was a cholera epidemic on the ship.



Del Boy:
I bet that cheered you all up, didn't it?



Uncle Albert:
It took their minds off the U-boats and sharks.

Judge Randolph:
Sustained.



Kaffee:
Lieutenant Kendrick, one final question. If you had ordered Dawson to give Santiago a code red...



Lt. Kendrick:
[Interrupting, exasperated] I SPECIFICALLY ORDERED THOSE MEN NOT TO TOUCH SANTIAGO!



Kaffee:
...would it be reasonable to think he would have disobeyed you again?



Capt. Ross:
Lieutenant, don't answer that!



Kaffee:
You don't have to, I'm through.



Capt. Ross:
Lieutenant Kendrick, did you order Lance Corporal Dawson and Private Downey to give Willie Santiago a code red?


[Kendrick initially refuses to answer, sensing he's been caught lying]



Capt. Ross:
Lieutenant Kendrick! Did you...



Lt. Kendrick:
No, I did not!

Contributor, 'Back in Black':
War is all the rage these days, so let me lay another one on you - TIVO vs. Advertisers. With more and more Americans zapping commercials, advertisers are going guerilla on our asses. Taking it to new and better heights. For example, five-foot tall bulimic men. The Churchill Downs recently OK'd the jockeys to wear advertisements on their shorts. The commission for the Churchill Downs has stated in the past that it didn't want, quote "advertisements that would not taint or destroy the fine tradition here at Churchill Downs". That means that they didn't want ads tainting the nobility of gambling. Which means no ads for glue or dog food, it upsets the horses! So what did the ads permit? An ad for Hypnotiq, a liquor made from vodka, cognac, and tropical fruit juices. Just perfect for Derby Day. And it's the only drink more likely to make you puke than a mint julep. Baseball has also permitted these ads, but the players wont wear them. Not because of the purity of the game, but the ads conflict with the player's own endorsement deals. Speed Stick? I thought they endorsed Right Guard! Say it aint so!

Conquering Bear:
In 1865, the Civil War ended. As the flow of settlers heading westward increased, so did the disputes between the government, the settlers and the Indians. Conflict was inevitable....

General Hummel:
Remember Operation Desert Storm? Those surgical hits made by our smart bombs that were covered so well on CNN? It was my men on the ground that made those hits possible by lazing the targets. Twenty of those men were left to rot outside Baghdad after the conflict ended. No benefits were payed to their families. No medals conferred. These men died for their country and they weren't even given a goddamn military burial. This situation is unacceptable. You will transfer one hundred million dollars from Grand Cayman Red Sea trading company to an account I designate. From these funds, one million dollars will be paid to each of the eighty-three marines' families. The rest of the funds, I will disperse at my discretion. Do I make myself clear?



Womack:
Except for the Red Sea Trading Company. What is that?



General Hummel:
Identify yourself.



Womack:
This is FBI Director Womack, General.



General Hummel:
It's a slush-fund where the Pentagon keeps proceeds from illeagal arms deals...



General Al Kramer:
Jesus, Frank, this is classified information!



General Hummel:
You alert the media, I launch the gas. You refuse payment, I launch the gas. You've got forty hours, until noon, day after tomorrow, to arrange transfer of the money. I am aware of your countermeasure. You know and I know it doesn't stand a chance. Hummel from Alcatraz, out.

The Stranger:
[voiceover] Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya about. Goes by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. See, this Lebowski, he called himself "The Dude". Now, "Dude" - there's a name no man would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Dude that didn't make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so darned interestin'. See, they call Los Angeles the "City Of Angels"; but I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow it as there are some nice folks there. 'Course I ain't never been to London, and I ain't never seen France. And I ain't never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing Los Angeles, and this here story I'm about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd seen in any of them other places. And in English, too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the good Lord gypped me. Now this here story I'm about to unfold took place in the early '90s - just about the time of our conflict with Sad'm and the I-raqis. I only mention it because sometimes there's a man... I won't say a hero, 'cause, what's a hero? Sometimes, there's a man. And I'm talkin' about the Dude here - the Dude from Los Angeles. Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Dude. The Dude, from Los Angeles. And even if he's a lazy man - and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of Los Angeles County, which would place him high in the runnin' for laziest worldwide. Sometimes there's a man, sometimes, there's a man. Well, I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced it enough.

Martin Q. Blank:
Do you *really* believe that there's some stored up conflict that exists between us? There *is* no us. *We* don't exist. So who do you wanna hit, man? It's not me. Now whaddya wanna do here, man?



Bob:
[Pulls out a folded up piece of paper]



Martin Q. Blank:
I don't know what that is.



Bob:
These are my words.



Martin Q. Blank:
It's a poem? See, that's the problem... express yourself, Bob! Go for it.



Bob:
"When I feel... quiet... when... I feel... blue..."



Martin Q. Blank:
You know, I think that is *terrific*, what you have right there. Really, I liked it, a lot. I wouldn't sell the dealership or anything but, I'm tellin' ya... it's intense!



Bob:
There's... more.



Martin Q. Blank:
Okay, would ya mind, just skip to the end.



Bob:
To... the very end? "For a while."



Martin Q. Blank:
Whew. That's good man.



Bob:
"For a while."



Martin Q. Blank:
That's excellent!



Bob:
You wanna do some blow?



Martin Q. Blank:
No I don't.



Bob:

Lester Bangs:
Aw, man. You made friends with them. See, friendship is the booze they feed you. They want you to get drunk on feeling like you belong.



William Miller:
Well, it was fun.



Lester Bangs:
They make you feel cool. And hey. I met you. You are not cool.



William Miller:
I know. Even when I thought I was, I knew I wasn't.



Lester Bangs:
That's because we're uncool. And while women will always be a problem for us, most of the great art in the world is about that very same problem. Good-looking people don't have any spine. Their art never lasts. They get the girls, but we're smarter.



William Miller:
I can really see that now.



Lester Bangs:
Yeah, great art is about conflict and pain and guilt and longing and love disguised as sex, and sex disguised as love... and let's face it, you got a big head start.



William Miller:
I'm glad you were home.



Lester Bangs:
I'm always home. I'm uncool.



William Miller:
Me too!



Lester Bangs:
The only true currency in this bankrupt world if what we share with someone else when we're uncool.



William Miller:
I feel better.



Lester Bangs:
My advice to you. I know you think those guys are your friends. You wanna be a true friend to them? Be honest, and unmerciful.
