Conflicting Goals

Famous quotes containing the words conflicting and/or goals:

    Compromise. Such an adjustment of conflicting interests as gives each adversary the satisfaction of thinking he has got what he ought not to have, and is deprived of nothing except what was justly his due.
    Ambrose Bierce (1842–1914)

    If people would forget about utopia! When rationalism destroyed heaven and decided to set it up here on earth, that most terrible of all goals entered human ambition. It was clear there’d be no end to what people would be made to suffer for it.
    Nadine Gordimer (b. 1923)
