The completely solitary self: that's where poetry comes from, and it gets isolated by crisis, and those crises are often very intimate also.
— Seamus Heaney

A marriage without conflicts is almost as inconceivable as a nation without crises.
Andre Maurois crises quote

Crises and deadlocks when they occur have at least this advantage, that they force us to think.
— Jawaharlal Nehru

Crises bring out the best in the best of us, and the worst in the worst of us.
— Unknown

Crises refine life. In them you discover what you are.
— crises quotation by Allan K. Chalmers
