Argument quotes
Argument
Any fact is better established by two or three good testimonies than by a thousand arguments.

- Emmons, Nathaniel
The argument of the broken pane of glass is the most valuable argument in modern politics.

- Emmeline Pankhurst
People generally quarrel because they cannot argue.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The purely agitation attitude is not good enough for a detailed consideration of a subject.

- Nehru, Jawaharlal
Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.

- Adams, George M.
In an argument, you have to learn to control your emotions. The other person is the revolver, but you are the trigger. The revolver won't hurt you as long as the trigger isn't pulled.

- Donald Trump
When good people have a falling out, only one of them may be at fault at first; but if the strife continues long, usually both become guilty.

- Fuller, Thomas
Curiosity ... endows the people who have it with a generosity in argument and a serenity in their own mode of life which springs from their cheerful willingness to let life take the form it will.

- Cooke, Alistair
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
He maintained that the case was lost or won by the time the final juror had been sworn in; his summation was set in his mind before the first witness was called. It was all in the orchestration, he claimed: in knowing how and where to pitch each and every particular argument; who to intimidate; who to trust, who to flatter and court; who to challenge; when to underplay and exactly when to let out all the stops.

- Uhnak, Dorothy
There are two things which cannot be attacked in front: ignorance and narrow-mindedness. They can only be shaken by the simple development of the contrary qualities. They will not bear discussion.

- Acton, Lord
When you have no basis for an argument, abuse the plaintiff.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
Unless I am convinced by proofs from Scriptures or by plain and clear reasons and arguments, I can and will not retract, for it is neither safe nor wise to do anything against conscience. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen.

- Martin Luther
Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

- Oscar Wilde
It was completely fruitless to quarrel with the world, whereas the quarrel with oneself was occasionally fruitful and always, she had to admit, interesting.

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

- Halifax, Edward F.
Testimony is like an arrow shot from a long bow and the force of it depends on the strength of the arm from which it was shot. Argument is like a bullet fired from a gun and has equal force even when issued from a child.

Now you can begin to see quite transparently that nothing purchased life is one of argument, If other people don't agree with you you're in big trouble. How far would you get in your work if nobody agreed that what you were doing had value?

- Frieseke, Frederick (Carl)
What can you do against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?

- Orwell, George
The Argument from Intimidation is a confession of intellectual impotence.

- Ayn Rand
