Family quarrels are bitter things.  They don’t go by any rules.  They’re not like aches or wounds.  They’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because theres not enough material.  F Scott Fitzgerald



How many frivolous quarrels and disgusts are there, which people of common prudence endeavour to forget, when they lie under the necessity of passing their lives together; but which would soon inflame into the most deadly hatred, were they pursued to the utmost, under the prospect of an easy separation?  David Hume, Essays: Moral and Political 1741-2



Why, how now, sons and brother – at a strife?

What is your quarrel?  How began it first?  William Shakespeare, Richard Duke of York I ii 4-5, York



And the best quarrels in the heat are cursed

By those that feel their sharpness.  William Shakespeare, The History of King Lear V iii 55-56, Edmund



Quarrel not at all.  No man resolved to make the most of himself can spare time for personal contention.  Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiating of his temper and loss of self-control.  Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own.  Better give your path to a dog than be bitten by him in contesting for the right.  Even killing the dog would not cure the bite.  Abraham Lincoln



If you get down and quarrel every day, youre saying prayers to the devil, I say.  Bob Marley



The quarrel is a very pretty quarrel as it stands – we should only spoil it by trying to explain it.  Richard Brinsley Sheridan, The Rivals



We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.  W B Yeats, Essays



A quarrel between friends, when made up, adds a new tie to friendship.  Saint Francis de Sales



Though a quarrel in the streets is a thing to be hated, the energies displayed in it are fine; the commonest man shows a grace in his quarrel.  John Keats    



I aint got no quarrel with the Viet-Cong.  Muhammad Ali



The test of a man or woman’s breeding is how they behave in a quarrel.  George Bernard Shaw, variations



It was completely fruitless to quarrel with the world, whereas the quarrel with oneself was occasionally fruitful and always, she had to admit, interesting.  Soren Kierkegaard



You should not quarrel with your neighbour, for he will remain where he is, but your high handedness will become the talk of the people.  Abu Bakr



I would no more quarrel with a man because of his religion than I would because of his art.  Mary Baker Eddy



I’m armed with more than complete steel, – The justice of my quarrel.  Christopher Marlowe



There are more quarrels smothered by just shutting your mouth, and holding it shut, than by all the wisdom in the world.  Henry Ward Beecher  



When we quarrel, how we wish we had been blameless.  Ralph Waldo Emerson  



Every quarrel begins in nothing and ends in a struggle for supremacy.  Elbert Hubbard



Instead of a standing revenue, you will have therefore a perpetual quarrel.  Edmund Burke



Life would be unendurable without quarrels.  A good quarrel is the salt of the earth; it’s better than a variety show!  Ethel Lilian Voynich
