By the very act of arguing, you awake the patient's reason; and once it is awake, who can foresee the result
When an argument flares up, the wise man quenches it with silence
Nothing sways the stupid more than arguments they can't understand
Fear not those who argue but those who dodge
I dislike arguments of any kind. They are always vulgar, and often convincing
An Argument needs no reason; Nor any friendship
The formula of the argument is simple and familiar: to dispose of a problem all that is necessary is to deny that it exists
Many can argue; not many converse
In argument similes are like songs in love; they describe much, but prove nothing
Men's arguments often prove nothing but their wishes
When you let someone else win an argument, often you both end up winners
The best way to win an argument is to begin by being right
We are not won by arguments that we can analyze but by the tone and temper, by the manner which is the man himself
An argument derived from the abuse of a thing does not hold good against its use
Insolence is not logic; epithets are the arguments of malice
Arguments are like fire-arms which a man may keep at home but should not carry about with him.
A great many college graduates come here thinking of lawyers as social engineers arguing the great Constitutional issues
When you argue with your inferiors, you convince them of only one thing: they are as clever as you.
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.
If we can not trust a freeman with his right to keep and bear arms, then how can we trust him with the right to vote. Surely the right of a freeman to vote has a much greater effect on our collective lives than does any individual's firearm. If one argues that the effect of any one freeman's vote is minimal, then why allow it in the first place? To be armed is to secure one's right to representation.
The more arguments you win, the fewer friends you'll have.
The weaker the argument, the stronger the words.
Sometimes when you're arguing with a fool, he's doing the same thing.
