two words of contradictory meaning are used together for special effect
Paradox
a statement, proposition, or situation that seems to be absurd or contradictory, but in fact is or may be true
"Dark knows daylight"
dark and daylight are opposites,
and yet here they have something
in common.
we must sometimes be cruel
in order to be kind
If someone says, “I am lying,” for example, and we assume that his statement is true, it must be false. The paradox is that the statement “I am lying” is false if it is true.
Ghost House
by
Robert Frost

I dwell in a lonely house I know
That vanished many a summer ago
"The more things change, the more they stay the same."
"We can't live with them, and we can't live without them."
a statement or proposition that
seems self-contradictory or absurd but in reality expresses a possible truth.
It is a great mistake to suppose that love unites and unifies men. Love diversifies them, because love is directed towards individuality. The thing that really unites men and makes them like to each other is hatred. G. K. Chesterton

5.The couple who met in a revolving
door are still going round together.
Some musicians can be sharp, which is not natural.
Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I'll show you A-flat minor.
A bicycle can't stand on its own because it is two-tired.
When a clock is hungry it goes back four seconds.
