DISSENSION
[ Also see Agreement Argument Contention Contradiction Discord Enemies Quarreling Rebellion Revolution War ]

Have always been at daggers-drawing,
  And one another clapper-clawing.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. II, canto II, l.79)

That each pull'd different ways with many an oath,
  "Arcades ambo," id est--blackguards both.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto IV, st. 93)

And Doubt and Discord step 'twixt thine and thee.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        The Prophecy of Dante (canto II, l. 140)

Dissensions, like small streams, are first begun,
  Scarce seen they rise, but gather as they run:
    So lines that from their parallel decline,
      More they proceed the more they still disjoin.
      - Sir Samuel Garth, The Dispensary
         (canto III, l. 184)

In a number of cases dissenting opinions have in time become the law.
      - Charles Evans Hughes

And bitter waxed the fray;
  Brother with brother spake no word
    When they met in the way.
      - Jean Ingelow, Poems--Strife and Peace

And old affront will stir the heart
  Through years of rankling pain.
      - Jean Ingelow, Poems--Strife and Peace

Alas! I how light a cause may move
  Dissension between hearts that love!
    Hearts that the world in vain had tried,
      And sorrow but more closely tied;
        That stood the storm, when waves were rough,
          Yet in a sunny hour fall off.
      - Thomas Moore

Alas! how light a cause may move
  Dissension between hearts that love!
    Hearts that the world in vain had tried,
      And sorrow but more closely tied;
        That stood the storm when waves were rough,
          Yet in a sunny hour fall off.
      - Thomas Moore,
        Lalla Rookh--The Light of the Harem
         (l. 183)

Civil dissension is a viperous worm
  That gnaws the bowels of the commonwealth.
      - William Shakespeare

Believe me, lords, my tender years can tell
  Civil dissension is a viperous worm
    That gnaws the bowels of the commonwealth.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (King Henry at III, i)

If they perceive dissension in our looks
  And that within ourselves we disagree,
    How will their grudging stomachs be provoked
      To willfull disobedience, and rebel!
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (King Henry at IV, i)

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.
      - Dr. John Wolcot (Wolcott or Woolcott) (used pseudonym Peter Pindar),
        The Louisad (canto III, l. 121)
