We cannot avoid conflict—conflict with society, with other individuals, and with oneself. Conflicts may be the sources of defeat, lost life, and a limitation of our potentiality; but they may also lead to greater depth of living and the birth of more far-reaching unities, which flourish in the tensions that engender them.
