I sing the hymn of the conquered, who fell in the battle of life, The hymn of the wounded, the beaten who died overwhelmed in the strife; Not the jubilant song of the victors for whom the resounding acclaim Of nations was lifted in chorus whose brows wore the chaplet of fame, But the hymn of the low and the humble, the weary, the broken in heart, Who strove and who failed, acting bravely a silent and desperate part.
London! hast thou accused me Of breach of laws? the root of Strife! Within whose breast did boil to see, So fervent hot, thy dissolute life.howard, henry, earl of surrey
Individual societies begin in harmonious adaptation to the environment and, like individuals, quickly get trapped into nonadaptive, artificial, repetitive sequences.When the individual's behavior and consciousness get hooked to a routine sequence of external actions, he is a dead robot, and it is time for him to die and be reborn. Time to "drop out," "turn on," and "tune in." This period of robotization is called the Kali Yuga, the Age of Strife and Empire...timothy leary
London, hast thou accused me Of breach of laws, the root of Strife? Within whose breast did boil to see, So fervent hot, thy dissolute life, That even the hate of sins that grow Within thy wicked walls so rife, For to break forth did convert so That terror could it not repress.Surrey, Henry Howard, Earl of
Men, some to business, some to pleasure take; But every woman is at heart a rake: Men, some to quiet, some to public Strife; But every lady would be Queen for life.Alexander Pope
It is like a wide embrace gathering all those who have long searched for words of hope… Saddened by the continual Strife amongst believers of many confessions and wearied of their intolerance towards each other, I discovered in the Bahá'í teaching the real spirit of Christ so often denied and misunderstood.queen of romania marie of edinburgh
To Him let us but cleave in all ouv Strife; and the Tempte1 will flee; the wilderness will be desolate no more; angels will come and minister unto us; and when we pass from them to the ministry of life, be it to the glory of a transfiguration, the sorrows of a Gethsemane, or the sacrifice of the cross, the tran- quilizing peace of God will never be far from us.james martineau
he [agent Daly] conducts his office as being a whole Dominion Government, Indian Agent, Indian Cheif and Council, all into one ... the Agent appears as taking too much advantage of his powers over the Chief and council and causing a considerable Strife an [animosity] amoung the Indians of this Reserve ... foiling the labors of the chief and members of the council, discrediting those who assist to maintain good government of the Band.francis pegahmagabow
The purpose of separation of church and state is to keep forever from these shores the ceaseless Strife that has soaked the soil of Europe in blood for centuries.james madison
Narrated Said bin Al-Musaiyab: When the first civil Strife (in Islam) took place because of the murder of 'Uthman, it left none of the Badr warriors alive. When the second civil Strife, that is the battle of Al-Harra, took place, it left none of the Hudaibiya treaty companions alive. Then the third civil Strife took place and it did not subside till it had exhausted all the strength of the people.
You will know that wretched men are the cause of their own suffering, who neither see nor hear the good that is near them, and few are the ones who know how to secure release from their troubles. Such is the fate that harms their minds; like pebbles they are tossed about from one thing to another with cares unceasing. For the dread companion Strife harms them unawares, whom one must not walk behind, but withdraw from and flee.pythagoras
The Strife is o'er, the battle done; Now is theVictor's triumph won;Frances Pott
In our lore, the Jewish family was an inviolate haven against every form of menace, from personal isolation to gentile hostility. Regardless of internal friction and Strife, it was assumed to be an indissoluble consolidation? Family indivisibility, the first commandment.philip roth

Behind the steps that Misery treads Approaching Comfort view: The hues of bliss more brightly glow Chastised by sabler tints of woe, And blended form, with artful Strife, The strength and harmony of life.thomas gray
Where good and ill together blent, Wage an undying Strife.
For thine own purpose, thou hast sent The Strife and the discouragement!Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
No, no! The energy of life may be Kept on after the grave, but not begun; And he who flagg'd not in the earthly Strife, From strength to strength advancing only he His soul well-knit, and all his battles won, Mounts, and that hardly, to eternal life.Matthew Arnold
Stream of the living world Where dash the billows of Strife! One plunge in the mighty torrent Is a year of tamer life! City of glorious days, Of hope, and labour and mirth, With room and to spare, on thy splendid bays For the ships of all the earth!richard watson gilder
The US has always taken velvet revolution into consideration by promoting Western culture in the society and by causing Strife between people and the government through propaganda , organizing certain individuals, psychological warfare and making intentional use of media, intellectual circles, university student's establishments and feminism movements in order to implement its interfering policies.
We are waiting, Master, waiting, Wayworn, pressed with toils and Strife; Waiting, hoping, watching, praying, Till we reach the gates of life.
We are the voices of the wandering wind, Which moan for rest and rest can never find; Lo! as the wind is, so is mortal life, A moan, a sigh, a sob, a storm, a Strife.
