DISCORD
[ Also see Argument Contention Dissension Quarreling Rebellion ]

The peacemakers shall be called the sons of God, who came to make peace between God and man. What then shall the sowers of discord be called, but the children of the devil? And what must they look for but their father's portion?
      - Saint Bernard of Clairvaux

Unity, agreement, is always silent or soft-voiced; it is only discord that loudly proclaims itself.
      - Thomas Carlyle

A modicum of discord is the very spice of courtship.
      - Sebastien-Roch-Nicolas de Chamfort

Untimely conduct is the discord of manners.
      - Louise Colet (nee Revoil)

Discord; a sleepless hag, who never dies,
  With snipe-like nose and ferret-glowing eyes
    Lean sallow cheeks, long chin, with beard supplied,
      Poor crackling joints, and wither'd parchment hide,
        As if old drums, worn out with martial din,
          Had clubb'd their yellow heads to form her skin.
      - Peter Pindar (pseudonym of Dr. John Wolcot) (Wolcott)

How sour sweet music is,
  When time is broke, and no proportion kept!
      - William Shakespeare

Discord oft in music makes the sweeter lay.
      - Edmund Spenser
