“We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.”
William Butler Yeats
“Out of our quarrels with others we make rhetoric. Out of our quarrels with ourselves we make poetry.”
“Rhetoric . . . To which poetry would be made subsequent, or indeed rather precedent, as being less subtle and fine, but more simple, sensuous and passionate.”
“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.”
“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.”
“Power is the most persuasive rhetoric.”
Friedrich von Schiller
“Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtile; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.”
Francis Bacon Sr.
