Argument quotes
Argument
The sounder your argument, the more satisfaction you get out of it.

- Howe, Edgar Watson
We are not won by arguments that we can analyze, but by tone and temper; by the manner, which is the man himself.

- Butler, Samuel
A single fact can spoil a good argument.

The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.

- Joubert, Joseph
There's nothing I like less than bad arguments for a view that I hold dear.

- Dennett, Daniel
Talk about the flag or drugs or crime (never about race or class or justice) and follow the yellow brick road to the wonderful land of consensus. In place of honest argument among consenting adults the politicians substitute a lullaby for frightened children: the pretense that conflict doesn't really exist, that we have achieved the blessed state in which we no longer need politics.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
A lot of good arguments are spoiled by some fool who knows what he is talking about.

Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long-bow; its force depends on the strength of the hand that draws it. But argument is like an arrow from a cross-bow, which has equal force if drawn by a child or a man.

- Charles Boyle
Argument is conclusive... but... it does not remove doubt, so that the mind may rest in the sure knowledge of the truth, unless it finds it by the method of experiment. For if any man who never saw fire proved by satisfactory arguments that fire burns. his hearer's mind would never be satisfied, nor would he avoid the fire until he put his hand in it that he might learn by experiment what argument taught.

- Bacon, Roger
Most quarrels amplify a misunderstanding.

- Gide, Andre
The common argument that crime is caused by poverty is a kind of slander on the poor.

- Mencken, H. L.
My parents only had one argument in forty-five years. It lasted forty-three years.

- Cathy Ladman
I've had a few arguments with people, but I never carry a grudge. You know why? While you're carrying a grudge, they're out dancing.

- Hackett, Buddy
Never contend with one that is foolish, proud, positive, testy, or with a superior, or a clown, in matter of argument.

- Fuller, Thomas
Don't take the wrong side of an argument just because your opponent has taken the right side.

- Baltasar Gracian
There is no point in arguing about matters of taste.

The argument that making contraceptives available to young people would prevent teen pregnancies is ridiculous. That's like offering a cookbook as a cure to people who are trying to lose weight.

- Jerry Falwell
Neither irony or sarcasm is argument.

- Butler, Samuel
I think that the leaf of a tree, the meanest insect on which we trample, are in themselves arguments more conclusive than any which can be adduced that some vast intellect animates Infinity.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
When you have no basis of argument, abuse the plaintiff.

- Cicero
