“Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtile; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.”
Francis Bacon Sr.
“Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtle; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.”
“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.”
“The big divide in this country is not between Democrats and Republicans, or women and men, but between talkers and doers.”
“Rhetoric is a poor substitute for action, and we have trusted only to rhetoric. If we are really to be a great nation, we must not merely talk; we must act big.”
“We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.”
William Butler Yeats
“[T]hat's just the nature of democracy. Sometimes pure politics enters into the rhetoric.”
George W. Bush
