Argument quotes

RACK, n. An argumentative implement formerly much used in persuading devotees of a false faith to embrace the living truth. As a call to the unconverted the rack never had any particular efficacy, and is now held in light popular esteem.

- Ambrose Bierce

Anger is never without an argument, but seldom with a good one.

- Halifax, Edward F.

Nothing does reason more right, than the coolness of those that offer it: For Truth often suffers more by the heat of its defenders, than from the arguments of its opposers.

- Penn, William

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

- Voltaire

There is no point in arguing about matters of taste.


With reasonable men, I will reason; with humane men I will plead; but to tyrants I will give no quarter, nor waste arguments where they will certainly be lost.

- William Lloyd Garrison

Nations do not think, they only feel. They get their feelings at second hand through their temperaments, not their brains. A nation can be brought -- by force of circumstances, not argument -- to reconcile itself to any kind of government or religion that can be devised; in time it will fit itself to the required conditions; later it will prefer them and will fiercely fight for them.

- Twain, Mark

I've never found anybody that I could work with as quickly as myself, or with less argument.

It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle it without debate.

- Joubert, Joseph

Quarrels would not last so long if the fault lay only on one side.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De

Truth often suffers more by the heat of its defenders than from the arguments of its opposers.

- Penn, William

I have found you an argument; I am not obliged to find you an understanding.
