Argument quotes
Argument
We are in fact convinced that if we are ever to have pure knowledge of anything, we must get rid of the body and contemplate things by themselves with the soul by itself. It seems, to judge from the argument, that the wisdom which we desire and upon which we profess to have set our hearts will be attainable only when we are dead and not in our lifetime.

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

- Joubert, Joseph
The modern definition of'racist'is someone who is winning an argument with a liberal.

- Peter Brimelow
There are usually two sides to every argument but no end.

I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me.

- Dave Barry
The strongest argument for the un-materialistic character of American life is the fact that we tolerate conditions that are, from a negative point of view, intolerable. What the foreigner finds most objectionable in American life is its lack of basic comfort. No nation with any sense of material well-being would endure the food we eat, the cramped apartments we live in, the noise, the traffic, the crowded subways and buses. American life, in large cities, is a perpetual assault on the senses and the nerves; it is out of asceticism, out of unworldliness, precisely, that we bear it.

- Mccarthy, Mary
The most perfidious way of harming a cause consists of defending it deliberately with faulty arguments.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
An argument is like a country road, you never know where it is going to lead.

Men's arguments often prove nothing but their wishes.

- C. C. Colton
The argument is at an end.

- Saint Augustine
Arguments only confirm people in their own opinions.

- Tarkington, Booth
Argument, as usually managed, is the worst sort of conversation, as in books it is generally the worst sort of reading.

- Swift, Jonathan
Convincing yourself doesn't win an argument.

- Robert Half
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look into the reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or our family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and arguments. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change. -

- ThÝch Nhat Hanh
Concerning God, freewill and destiny: Of all that earth has been or yet may be, all that vain men imagine or believe, or hope can paint or suffering may achieve, we descanted.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
The sounder your argument, the more satisfaction you get out of it.

- Howe, Edgar Watson
I learned an important lesson in the art of debate. Present your argument clearly, arm yourself with cutting wit and of course, bob and weave!

- Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata
I do not think that anie language, be it whatsoever, is better able to utter all arguments, either with more pith, or greater planesse, then our English tung is, if the English utterer be as skilful in the matter, which he is to utter: as the foren utterer is.

- Richard Mulcaster
Your friends praise your abilities to the skies, submit to you in argument, and seem to have the greatest deference for you; but, though they may ask it, you never find them following your advice upon their own affairs; nor allowing you to manage your own, without thinking that you should follow theirs. Thus, in fact, they all think themselves wiser than you, whatever they may say.

- Melbourne, Lord
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
