We have collected the best Argued Quotes by famous authors including Helena Norberg-Hodge, Fran Lebowitz, Liz Truss, Bhumibol Adulyadej, Russell Smith and many others, we hope that among them you will find the right thought.
There’s often a discussion about, ‘Well, how do we know what happiness is? Is it real?’ I’ve always argued that all of us know that there’s a huge difference between how we feel when we feel happy and when we don’t feel happy.
Nature is by and large to be found out of doors, a location where, it cannot be argued, there are never enough comfortable chairs.
Traditionally, Conservatives have argued that low taxes are a route to self-determination. I agree. It is vital we keep taxes low and the size of the state in check, to allow people to spend more of their own money.
It could be argued that, in Thailand, many foreigners have come and gone, and the number of people who are considered to be Thai have traveled abroad in a great number.
I have argued about the future of fiction with jaded novelists, far-seeing postmodernists, technologists, television critics. The argument that future generations will not know the pleasures of the novel has been a staple of book reviewing since at least 1960.
Trump is a populist in the same mold as the nineteenth-century Populists who gave their name to American grassroots political movements. Historians and pundits argued themselves blue in the face over whether Populists were reactionary or progressive, but they were both.
Heather Cox Richardson
The idea that the country should be led by white men goes back to antebellum slaveholders, who argued that the world was naturally divided between working drudges and elite leaders, who directed their workers and used the wealth the workers produced to promote progress.
Heather Cox Richardson
I argued that I didn’t have any of the attributes to pose for cheesecake. I said I would have to make good on my acting ability, which was the only attribute I could offer.
It could be – and it has been argued, in my view rather plausibly, though neuroscientists don’t like it – that neuroscience for the last couple hundred years has been on the wrong track.
Some have argued that the United States was designed to block majority rule; to be a ‘republic, not a democracy.’ This is ahistorical nonsense.
The Justices are currently considering a case, argued last month, which seeks to extend the writ of habeas corpus to al Qaeda and Taliban detainees at Guantanamo.
I have argued for years that we do not have a health care system in America. We have a disease-management system – one that depends on ruinously expensive drugs and surgeries that treat health conditions after they manifest rather than giving our citizens simple diet, lifestyle and therapeutic tools to keep them healthy.
Scientists have argued that research is good for health, wealth, and society, and the government has trusted them on that.
Philosophers and theologians have argued for centuries over the morality of targeted assassinations – a technique that the Israelis use with some frequency – without ever reaching anything approaching consensus.
I have long argued that in the modern world, corporation tax has had its day as a major source of tax revenue.
Malice scorned, puts out itself; but argued, give a kind of credit to a false accusation.
The outstanding truths of life, the great and unquestioned phenomena of society, are not to be argued away as myths and vagaries when they do not fit within our little moulds. If necessary, we must remake the moulds.
Benjamin N. Cardozo
As a teenager growing up in the suburbs of Washington, I ritually watched the Sunday-morning political talk shows with my family. We parsed and argued and jeered at the screen as national figures delivered careful, poll-tested talking points.
Money is there to put food on the table and make sure your family is cared for. Anything beyond that can be argued as extraneous.
Political scientists have long argued that party identification is the best possible predictor of voting behavior and is remarkably sticky over time.
You never argued with my mother. You couldn’t win.
Nature, I have constantly argued in my work, is the real superpower of this godless universe. It is the ultimate disposer of human fate, randomly recarving geography over 10,000-year epochs.
My career divides in two: before and after 9/11. In the first part I was trying to show that Islam is relevant to political concerns. If you want to understand Muslims, I argued, you need to understand the role of Islam in their lives. Now that seems obvious.
Without sounding like a right idiot, my mum and my dad are my role models. They devoted everything to my sister and me – and stayed together through everything. It wasn’t because they never argued – of course they did – but they worked through it and made their marriage work.
Perhaps the hardest challenge has been to persuade the public, impatient for rapid growth, of the need to ensure stability first. Growth, it is argued, is always more important, regardless of the looming economic risks.
Since I came to the World Bank in 2007, I have argued that we must ‘modernize multilateralism.’
My father always encouraged me to do whatever I wanted, providing I was happy. He wanted me to go to school, but because I never wanted to, it was the only thing we argued about.
I never argued with my father, and it so happened that, unfortunately, the same kind of relationship passed on with me and Ranbir.
Nobody gets argued all the way into becoming a believer on the sheer basis of logic and reason. That requires a leap of faith.
Religious fundamentalists in Bangladesh have always argued for a ban on my books.
Conservatives have long argued, correctly, that ‘fine-tuning’ the economy is a chimera, but that argument seems to have disappeared from the conservative handbook.
Many thought it was a fool’s errand – that the browser companies were never going to listen to us. Others argued that, ‘Users don’t care if you use Web standards.’ Well, of course they don’t. They just know that your site works better.
I had no problem with Ritchie. Ritchie and I never argued. We never had a problem. I think I was always able to write the things that he wanted – until he decided he wanted to be a pop star. And then he started doing pop music. And once he did that, that was the end for me.
Ronnie James Dio
I think we have a great deal of mythology around writing. We believe that only a few people can really do it. I wrote a book called ‘The Right to Write.’ In it, I argued that all of us have the capacity to write. That it’s as normal to write as it is to speak.
I argued for a wartime moratorium on new visas and new immigrants because of the substantial danger of ISIS terrorists infiltrating our system.
I was never argued out of faith; it was much more passive than that – and I wasn’t argued back in, either.
I have argued that the Soviet story is one of the interaction of speculative excess or utopian aspirations with refractory reality.
Paul Craig Roberts
I have long argued that no one should be allowed to write opinion without spending years as a reporter – nothing like interviewing all four eyewitnesses to an automobile accident and then trying to write an accurate account of what happened.
I never argued against the position of the Chief Rabbinate on holy sites, including the Western Wall.
I have never seen Jeff Bezos, Marc Benioff, or Reed Hastings complain about being public. Nor have they ever argued that being public prevented them from doing things with a long-term focus.
I’ve always argued that all Tame Impala melodies are pure pop. It’s just that ‘Lonerism,’ for example, is a completely rumbling, fuzzed out psychedelic rock album. But for me, it was just pop music produced the way that I like to produce it.
As I have consistently argued, leaving the E.U. needs to be accompanied by a strong set of pro-enterprise policies to counteract any disruption: cut corporate taxes to make the U.K. an attractive destination for business and investment.
There’s no doubt we’d be very angry if the American president had come to the Knesset and argued against the government of Israel.
I’ve never argued that humans are massively hot-wired. What I was trying to point out was that you can’t understand how we learn unless you identify the learning mechanisms. And these have some genetic basis.
What I argued in ‘The Great Divide’ is that societies can’t function without trust, both politically and economically.
A time is marked not so much by ideas that are argued about as by ideas that are taken for granted. The character of an era hangs upon what needs no defense.
For years, the defenders of television have argued that the networks are only giving the people what they want. That might be true. But so is the Medellin cartel.
Vote Leave argued during the referendum that a Leave victory should deliver the huge changes that the public wanted and the U.K. should make science and technology the focus of a profound process of national renewal.
Although most Americans apparently loathe inflation, Yale economists have argued that a little inflation may be necessary to grease the wheels of the labor market and enable efficiency-enhancing changes in relative pay to occur without requiring nominal wage cuts by workers.
If this work seems so threatening, this is because it isn’t simply eccentric or strange, but competent, rigorously argued, and carrying conviction.
I’ve argued for a long time here… that I think that one of the things that is absolutely killing parity is the individual maximum salary.
Stan Van Gundy
Only weeks after Oslo began, when nearly all the world and most of Israel was drunk with the idea of peace, I argued that a Palestinian society not constrained by democratic norms would be a fear society that would pose a grave threat to Israel.
What part of 9/11 is big? If the future continues to reinterpret the past, it could be argued that 9/11 provides irrefutable proof that unless there is some other way that we learn to deal with our technology or deal with our brothers and sisters, it is goodbye as a species. That genie does not leave that bottle.
Martin Luther King Jr. could have argued that separate water fountains were too expensive, a waste of money. He would have been right about that. But cost was beside the point.
I loved that these two guys argued with each other as if movies actually mattered. Nobody I knew talked about movies that way, but Siskel and Ebert took each movie as it came and talked about whether it was a success on its own terms.
You sit up there, and you see the whole gamut of human nature. Even if the case being argued involves only a little fellow and $50, it involves justice. That’s what is important.
Thirty years ago, many economists argued that inflation was a kind of minor inconvenience and that the cost of reducing inflation was too high a price to pay. No one would make those arguments today.
The British system denied any role for human creativity, and instead argued, that if man merely followed his hedonistic desires, pursuing pleasure and avoiding pain, objective laws would naturally guide society to achieve the best allocation of wealth.
We have not argued in either Brazil or Argentina that the IMF should step in to protect the banks.
The American political scientist Francis Fukuyama has argued that liberal democracies, with their political freedom and economic success, have three important pillars: a strong government, the rule of law, and democratic accountability. I would add a fourth: free markets.
I have always argued, in a good novel, interesting things happen to interesting people.
Guy Gavriel Kay
Back in 2005 and 2006, I argued as forcefully as I could, in letters to clients of my investment firm, ‘Scion Capital’, that the mortgage market would melt down in the second half of 2007, causing substantial damage to the economy.
And I argued with that intelligence estimate and I think it is a responsibility of policymakers to use their best judgment on the basis of the intelligence they’ve received.
We have always argued that attempts to isolate Belarus, like other countries, lead to a dead end. In this situation, everyone loses.
I argued that until FBI director James Comey gives a green light to new visas, and not until we completely reform the vetting process for new foreign visitors, that the borders should be sealed.
I’ve often argued that oil and gas exploration is a state’s rights issue. It is abundantly clear that the State of Florida does not want drilling to negatively affect its beaches and shores.
Upon the Constitution, upon the pre-existing legal rights of the People, as understood in this country and in England, I have argued that this House is bound to revive the Petition under debate.
I also argued before the war that the administration was underestimating Arab nationalism and Iraqi nationalism, that it was not going to be as easy to rule Iraq as they thought.
In 2006, I argued and won Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, a Supreme Court case that struck down President George W. Bush’s use of military tribunals at Guantanamo Bay.
Within the U.S., you could have argued that most people who watch ‘Mad Men’ would watch ‘House of Cards.’ But the viewing is much more on par with the large-scale mainstream things like ‘The Walking Dead.’ It was much younger than we thought.
God gave you a brain. Do the best you can with it. And you don’t have to be Einstein, but Einstein was mentally tough. He believed what he believed. And he worked out things. And he argued with people who disagreed with him. But I’m sure he didn’t call everybody jerks.
Political linguists have argued that the right often uses stories to make an argument, while the left falls back on facts and statistics.
With human beings it could be argued that all music-making is, in essence, grounded in improvisation.
Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror. To the contrary, confronting the threat posed by Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terror.
George W. Bush
I have argued above that we cannot prevent the Singularity, that its coming is an inevitable consequence of the humans’ natural competitiveness and the possibilities inherent in technology.
