Opposites Attract
 

Eric Petersen

"You couldn't have strength without weakness, you couldn't have light without dark, you couldn't have love without loss."

- Jodi Picoult

 
 

Tallulah Fontaine

"Without birth and death, and without the perpetual transmutation of all the forms of life, the world would be static, rhythm-less, undancing, mummified."

- Alan Watts

 
 

Tyler Jacobson

"Action and reaction and equal and opposite."

- Gertrude Stein

 
 

Eleni Kalorkoti

"The most exciting attractions are between two opposites that never meet."

- Andy Warhol

 
 

Niklas Asker

"The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference. "

- Elie Wiesel

 
 

Maria Corte

"In my experience, it's common that deep truths exist at both extremes of a dialectic, and the wisest stance on an issue will incorporate 'both of the opposites within itself.'
"

- Joe Lonsdale

 
 

Charles Chaisson

"I pray that all polar opposites learn to agape love, live, and work together as brothers and sisters - or perish as fools."

- Alveda King

 
 

Bill Sanderson

"Our mind is capable of passing beyond the dividing line we have drawn for it. Beyond the pairs of opposites of which the world consists, other, new insights begin."

- Hermann Hesse

 
 

John Mattos

"If you will look about you (which most people won't do)," says Sergeant Cuff, "you will see that the nature of a man's tastes is, most times, as opposite as possible to the nature of a man's business"

- Wilkie Collins

 
 

Vanessa Branchi

"What if opposites could be combined and transcended, paradox embraced, a whole life lived in contradictory case?"

- Rachel Hartman

 
 

Chase Stone

"The reason as to why we are attracted to our opposites is because they are our salvation from the burden of being ourselves."

- Kamand Kojouri

 
 

Leonard Peng

"Opposites attract, and I think temperament is so fundamental that you end up craving someone of the opposite temperament to complete you."

- Susan Cain

 
 

Ricardo Martinez

"There is profound truth to being good and bad, positive and negative, powerful and vulnerable, masculine and feminine, light and dark, Not either/or, not neither/nor, but both, even all, and ending duality as we know it."

- J. Bruce Wilcox

 
 

Daniel Goldfarb

"The ethic of conviction and the ethic of responsibility are not opposites. They are complementary to one another. "

- Max Weber

 
 

Daren Lin

"All beauty is making one of opposites, and the making one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves."

- Eli Seigel

 
 

Lili des Bellons

"Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites which people our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash."

- Louis Aragon 

 
 

Christina Chung

"It takes strength to move between opposites, between safety and danger, steeping and swimming, 'x' and 'y,' love and love."

- Randon Billings Noble

 
 

Bomboland

"What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?"

- John Steinbeck

 
 

Yulong Lli

"God turns you from one feeling to another and teaches by means of opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one."

- Rumi

 
 

Thomas Ehretsmann

"Cold feet under a warm blanket, steam over an empty mug--rain splatters on dry window pane--open journals of closed memories... tears of laughter and joy of pain... schmaltz of diametric morning."

- Val Uchendu

 
 

Lulu Lin

"As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delights of presence best known by the torments of absence."

- Alcibiades

 
 

Ana Gomez Bernaus

"Good and evil, love and hate, night and day, sweet and bitter, man and woman, heaven above and the earth beneath--all those things are needful, one to the other, and who knows the end of each?"

- H. Rider Haggard

 
 

Joan Alturo

"Gloriousness and wretchedness need each other. One inspires us, the other softens us."

- Pema Chodron

 
 

Julia Yellow

"Embrace contradictions
for they make up
all of life:
You will eternally be
looking for yourself and
seeking ways to lose yourself."

- Kamand Kojouri

 
 

Edward Kinsella

"I’m nothing more than what you actually see, but I am also the complete opposite."

- Keren Ann

 
 

Tran Nguyen

"Together, we form a necessary paradox; not a senseless contradiction."

- Criss Jami

 
 

David Palumbo

"Perceive the similarity between the unfamiliar and what is familiar, look for opposites, and change your frame of reference."

- Miles G. Batt
