Why We Quarrel

155. The Brahmin Aramadanda said: “What is the cause, Master Kaccana, what is the reason why nobles, Brahmins and householders all quarrel with each other?”
“They do so because of their bondage and servitude to sensual pleasures, their attachment to and greed for sensual pleasures.”
“What is the cause, Master Kaccana, what is the reason why recluses quarrel with recluses?”
“They do so because of their bondage and servitude to opinions, their attachment to and greed for opinions.”

Anguttara Nikaya I.65
