Quotes About Opposing Forces

Everyone wants a happy life without difficulties or suffering. We create many of the problems we face.

We need to find ways of reducing these emotions by eliminating the ignorance that underlies them and applying opposing forces.

Most human beings spend their lives battling with opposing inner forces: what they think they should do versus what they are doing; how they feel about themselves versus how they are; whether they think they're right and worthy or wrong and unworthy.

Two opposing forces inhabit the poem: one of elevation or up-rooting, which pulls the word from the language: the other of gravity, which makes it return.

Poet and reader are two moments of a single reality.
