Reality simply consists of different points of view.
If I am walking with two other men, each of them will serve as my teacher. I will pick out the good points of the one and imitate them, and the bad points of the other and correct them in myself.
Experts always know everything but the fine points. When I took my citizenship exams, no one there knew how the White House came to be called the White House.
In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech.
The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.
We are a nation of communities... a brilliant diversity spread like stars, like a thousand points of light in a broad and peaceful sky.
George H. W. Bush

He knows nothing and thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.
George Bernard Shaw
The Republican argument that raising the debt ceiling encourages additional future spending is logically irresponsible. The debt ceiling has to be raised to authorize spending already approved by Congress. Despite that fallacy, the GOP has been able to score political points with its argument.

Tolerance, openness to argument, openness to self-doubt, willingness to see other people's points of view - these are very liberal and enlightened values that people are right to hold, but we can't allow them to delude us to the point where we can't recognise people who are needlessly perpetrating human misery.
While no one railroad can completely duplicate another line, two or more may compete at particular points.
