“The ability to analyze others’ arguments can also serve as a yardstick for when to withdraw from discussions that will most likely be futile.”
Ali Almossawi, An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments

“You can’t threaten an atheist with hell, Peg. It doesn’t make any sense. It’s like a hippie threatening to punch you in your aura.”
Ali Almossawi, An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments

“Misrepresenting the idea is much easier than refuting the evidence for it. Informal Fallacy › Red Herring › Straw Man”

“Oh, I don't know, you know, don't you know?”
P.G. Wodehouse

“You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.”
James Baldwin
