5.  God excuse: the last refuge of man with no answers and no argument – it came from God!  (God & Excuse & Argument)  George Carlin

 

 

544.  It’s funny the way one uses words like insult and offence but only for religion ... You don’t have to feel insulted or offended unless of course you haven’t got an argument in reply.  (Religion & Insult & Offence & Argument)  Professor Richard Dawkins, interview Newstalk 20th September 2009

 

 

760.  Once a belief or expectation is found, especially one that resolves uncomfortable uncertainty, it biases the observer to notice new information that confirms the belief, and to discount evidence to the contrary.  This self-perpetuating mechanism consolidates the original error and builds up an overconfidence in which the arguments of opponents are seen as too fragmentary to undo the adopted belief. (Belief & Evidence & Argument & Psychic)  David Marks & Richard Kammann, Psychology of the Psychic

 

 

2,345.  Men are apt to mistake the strength of their feeling for the strength of their argument.  The heated mind resents the chill touch and relentless scrutiny of logic.  (Logic & Argument)  William E Gladstone

 

 

2,368.  Logic, it is often said, is the study of valid arguments.  It is a systematic attempt to distinguish valid arguments from invalid arguments.  (Logic & Argument)  William H Newton-Smith, Logic

 

 

2,461.  Beware the irrational, however seductive.  Shun the ‘transcendent’ and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself.  Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others.  Don’t be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish.  Picture all experts as if they were mammals.  Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity.  Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence.  Suspect your own motives, and all excuses.  Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.  (Science & Advice & Expert & Argument & Motive)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

63,668.  I’d rather have an argument than be bored.  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

63,675.  There are all kinds of stupid people that annoy me but what annoys me most is a lazy argument.  (Argument & Stupidity)  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

2,470.  In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again.  They really do it.  It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful.  But it happens every day.  I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.  (Science & Argument & Opinion & Politics & Religion)  Carl Sagan, address CSICOP concerence 1987, cited J Poling ‘Do Science and the Bible Conflict?’

 

 

792.  There are no sacred truths.  All assumptions must be critically examined.  Arguments from authority are worthless.  (Truth & Criticism & Argument & Authority)  Professor Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan, Cosmos: Who Speaks for Earth? 1979

 

 

23,295.  A friendly little argument.  (Court-Room Films & Argument)  12 Angry Men 1957 starring Henry Fonda & Lee J Cobb & E G Marshall & Martin Balsam & Jack Warden & John Fiedler & Jack Klugman & Edward Binns & Joseph Sweeney & Ed Begley & George Voskovec & Robert Webber et al, director Sidney Lumet, juror to Clerk of the Court

 

 

41,195.  If you can’t answer a man’s arguments, all is not lost – you can still call him vile names.  (Name & Argument)  Elbert Hubbard

 

 

57,086.  Love-quarrels oft in pleasing concord end.  (Samson & Argument)  John Milton, Samson Agonistes 1671 l1008

 

 

63,669.  There’s nothing I like less than bad arguments for a view I hold dear.  Daniel C Dennett

 

 

63,670.  Anyone who conducts an argument by appealing to authority is not using his intelligence, he is just using his memory.  Leonardo da Vinci

 

 

63,671.  The best causes tend to attract to their support the worst arguments.  (Argument & Cause)  R A Fisher 1890-1962

 

 

63,672.  How many frivolous quarrels and disgusts are there, which people of common prudence endeavour to forget, when they lie under the necessity of passing their lives together; but which would soon inflame into the most deadly hatred, were they pursued to the utmost, under the prospect of an easy separation?  (Argument & Marriage & Quarrel)  David Hume, Essays: Moral and Political 1741-2

 

 

63,673.  And the best quarrels in the heat are cursed

By those that feel their sharpness.  (Argument & Quarrel)  William Shakespeare, The History of King Lear V iii 55-56, Edmund

 

 

63,674.  Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

 

Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

 

Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.  Matthew 5:23-25

 

 

63,676.  I love argument, I love debate.  I don’t expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me, that’s not their job.  (Argument & Debate & Thatcher)  Margaret Thatcher

 

 

63,677.  Neither irony or sarcasm is argument.  Samuel Butler

 

 

63,678.  Arguments are extremely vulgar, for everyone in good society holds exactly the same opinion.  Oscar Wilde

 

 

63,679.  Arguments are to be avoided: they are always vulgar and often convincing.  Oscar Wilde

 

 

63,680.  If you can’t answer a man’s arguments, all is not lost; you can still call him vile names.  Elbert Hubbard

 

 

64,303.  He who establishes his argument by noise and command shows that his reason is weak.  (Authority & Argument & Reason)  Michel de Montaigne

 

 

9,097.  The most perfidious way of harming a cause consists of defending it deliberately with faulty arguments.  (Philosophy & Cause & Argument)  Friedrich Nietzsche

 

 

71,204.  You have such strong words at command, that they make the smallest argument seem formidable.  (Eloquence & Words & Argument)  George Eliot
