Nothing uses up alcohol faster than political argument.
That can happen when people die, the argument with them drops away and people so flawed while they were drawing breath that at times they were all but unbearable now assert themselves in the most appealing way, and what was least to your liking the day before yesterday becomes in the limousine behind the hearse a cause not only for sympathetic amusement but for admiration
His conversation was full of imagination, and very often in limitation of ther Persian, and Arabic writers, he invented tales of wonderful fancy and passion. At other times he repeated my fsvorite poems or drew me out into arguments, wich he suported with great ingenuity.
The Jewish sages also tell us that God dances when His children defeat Him in argument, when they stand on their feet and use their minds. So questions like Anne's are worth asking. To ask them is a very fine kind of human behavior. If we keep demanding that God yield up His answers, perhaps some day we will understand them. And then we will be something more than clever apes, and we shall dance with God.
It's a no-win argument - that business of what we're born with and what our environment does to us. And it's a boring argument, because it simplifies the mysteries that attend both our birth and our growth.
Arguments are too much like disputes.
The boy protested that she should not; she continued to declare that she would, and the argument ended only with the visit.
Several of them would have protested if they could have found the right arguments.
The man assumes the role of the loner, the thinker and the searching spirit who calls the privileged and the powerful to task. The power of one was the courage to remain separate, th think through the truth and not be beguiled by convention or the plausible arguments of those who expect to maintain power, whatever the cost.
I was six when my mother taught me the art of invisible strength. It was a strategy for winning arguments, respect for others, and eventually thought neither of us knew it at the time, chess games... Come from the South, blow from the wind -- poom!-- North will follow. Strongest wind cannot be seen.
If you look at their argument, there is really one tower they are basing it on. These design elements are contained in other buildings on the campus - and to say that their design contained those elements and our design contained these elements ... does not mean that we copied theirs. There's only so much you can do with a parking garage.
The key argument is that cognitive tasks should be turned into design principles.
I argue very well. Ask any of my remaining friends. 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 dont even invite me.
It's a load of rubbish. You can see manufacturers using this as an argument for making more paper and recycling less.
When the argument came as to whether or not we belonged, quite frankly I loved it. I think everybody loves the David and Goliath story. But most of the time, no one cheers for Goliath. No matter who we faced, it was going to be something that we were expected to lose. It was something that it motivated our guys.
Judge Roberts is widely respected across the political spectrum for his qualifications for the job, his experience, his unquestioned character and integrity and his fairness. He's a constructionist -- he believes the Constitution means what it says. He's demonstrated that he's willing to sit down and listen to both sides of an argument and base his decision -- not on ideology -- but on what the law says.
If people want to say Barry is No. 1, they won't get an argument from me. As long as I get to be No. 2.
It's all very boring to say that we get along great and all that and sometimes we mock up come aggravation to make it interesting but the truth of it is that we get along so well we've never had an argument.
I read a study a while ago that made the argument, and it is a plausible argument, that there has been more persecution of Christians in the 20th century than in any of the preceding 19 centuries,
Whatever the competitive arguments may be for a more timely introduction of extending the trading day, the overriding interest should be the protection of the public user of the marketplace,
I hope people are thinking carefully about their arguments.
There is merit in that argument. I see no logic, though, in committing coaching suicide as per the Welsh.
Reber Johnson a violinist also got off another one, after I'd played over the Second Violin Sonata for himthat harmless piece. 'After stuff like that'he said'if you consider that music, and like it, how can you like Brahms or any good music' That is a very common attitude among almost all the well known lilies. They take it i.e., that attitude for granteda kind of self-evident axiom, a settled-for-life matter, ipso facto, admitting of no argument. The classical is good for all time, the modern is bad for all timeso if you like one, you can't like the other. Describing the reaction of a typical professional musician to his, and other twentieth-century, compositions. 'Lilies' was one of Ives' names for most of the concert goers of his era, who expected all music to be conventional and pretty.
I think that civil liberties types will make an argument that the lure of chat lines may be too much. And maybe that will not be a fair use of the limited rights granted police authorities to use entrapments.
My life is my argument.
We've been doing inspections all along. You can always make the argument that work could have been done faster.
In argument, truth always prevails finally; in politics, falsehood always.
He has a plausible defense he could say he's fighting for his constituency, and that's true in large part. The thing is, the contributions undercut his argument. The money really complicates it, or even compromises the integrity behind the action.
The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.
Faith is an excitement and an enthusiasm: it is a condition of intellectual magnificence to which we must cling as to a treasure, and not squander on our way through life in the small coin of empty words, or in exact and priggish argument.
