“We make out of the quarrel with others, rhetoric, but of the quarrel with ourselves, poetry.”
William Butler Yeats
“Rhetoric . . . To which poetry would be made subsequent, or indeed rather precedent, as being less subtle and fine, but more simple, sensuous and passionate.”
“Out of our quarrels with others we make rhetoric. Out of our quarrels with ourselves we make poetry.”
“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.”
“Rhetoric is the art of ruling the minds of men.”
“Power is the most persuasive rhetoric.”
Friedrich von Schiller
“[T]hat's just the nature of democracy. Sometimes pure politics enters into the rhetoric.”
George W. Bush
