Citações Gerry Spence

„The goal of a free nation is to reveal by example the enlightened possibilities of the human race, not to wield its power of destruction and death over the helpless, the poor, the starving and the war torn masses.“

—  Gerry Spence

Have We Already Been Defeated? (2001)
Contexto: The goal of a free nation is to reveal by example the enlightened possibilities of the human race, not to wield its power of destruction and death over the helpless, the poor, the starving and the war torn masses. The goal of a free nation must be no different outside its borders than within them. In America we do not massacre whole towns because they may be the chosen domicile of a criminal or a conspiracy of criminals. Instead we carefully root out the felons and bring them to justice.

„The gift of self cannot be given to us. It is an incomparable gift that has already been given.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: Give Me Liberty! (1998), Ch. 9 : Empowering the Self, p. 118
Contexto: The gift of self cannot be given to us. It is an incomparable gift that has already been given. We have possessed it from the beginning.

„As a reasoned dialogue, it resolves disputes. As an assertion of self, it engenders respect. As an entreaty of love, it expresses our devotion. As a plea, it generates mercy. As charismatic oration it moves multitudes and changes history. We must argue — to help, to warn, to lead, to love, to create, to learn, to enjoy justice — to be.“

—  Gerry Spence

Getting Started, p. 5
How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995)
Contexto: While birds can fly, only humans can argue. Argument is the affirmation of our being. It is the principal instrument of human intercourse. Without argument the species would perish. As a subtle suggestion, it is the means by which we aid another. As a warning, it steers us from danger. As exposition, it teaches. As an expression of creativity, it is the gift of ourselves. As a protest, it struggles for justice. As a reasoned dialogue, it resolves disputes. As an assertion of self, it engenders respect. As an entreaty of love, it expresses our devotion. As a plea, it generates mercy. As charismatic oration it moves multitudes and changes history. We must argue — to help, to warn, to lead, to love, to create, to learn, to enjoy justice — to be.

„Use simple words, words that create pictures and action and that generate feeling.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995), Ch. 7 : The Power of Words, p. 104
Contexto: Words that do not create images should be discarded. Words that have no intrinsic emotional or visual content ought to be avoided. Words that are directed to the sterile intellectual head-place should be abandoned. Use simple words, words that create pictures and action and that generate feeling.

„The Internet has become the phenomenon of the new century. It has become the voice of the people in the first genuine experiment in democracy yet conducted in America.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: Give Me Liberty! (1998), Ch. 21 : The Theft of Our Voice, p. 258
Contexto: The Internet has become the phenomenon of the new century. It has become the voice of the people in the first genuine experiment in democracy yet conducted in America. It stands ready to serve every facet, every faction. It creates neighbors where once we were foreigners. It carries our individual voices to new communities formed through the magic of electronics.
The electronic village has been born, and the village voice, via the internet is being heard.

„Today the insatiable quest for profit promotes the new slavery.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: Give Me Liberty! (1998), Ch. 2 : Man, the Enslaving Animal, p. 22
Contexto: Today the insatiable quest for profit promotes the new slavery. In bewildering ways, the new is more pernicious than the old, for the New American Slave is told he is free, and he clings to that myth as if his life depended upon it, a suspicion that cannot be totally ignored.

„If I am real, if I am speaking from the heart zone, the right words will come.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995), Ch. 7 : The Power of Words, p. 104
Contexto: If I am real, if I am speaking from the heart zone, the right words will come. They will come a spoonful at a time, in the proper mixture.

„Power can win the body count but it cannot win this war.“

—  Gerry Spence

On the war against terrorism
Have We Already Been Defeated? (2001)
Contexto: Power can win the body count but it cannot win this war. Because the enemy is not human. This is a war against a malicious spirit. Only fools attempt to defeat a spirit with guns and rockets and bombs.

„The power argument is an argument so powerful in its structure, so compelling in its delivery that when we assume the power stance the argument cannot be defeated.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995), Ch. 12 The Unbeatable Power Argument : Delivering the Knockout p. 191
Contexto: The power argument is an argument so powerful in its structure, so compelling in its delivery that when we assume the power stance the argument cannot be defeated. The power argument need not fill the air with noise. It need not create pandemonium. It need not destroy the opponent. It can be quiet. Gentle. It can embrace love, not anger, understanding, not hate.

„There are no rules that say lawyers cannot write or speak from their heart.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995), Ch. 7 : The Power of Words, p. 104

The question then is, How does arguing with our children advance our goal that our children freely bloom.

„The new and most powerful union of all will be a union of one — one man, one woman, one worker with special skills, an inquiring mind, and an independent attitude, his creativity intact, his love of life blooming.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: Give Me Liberty! (1998), Ch. 17 : Success Redefined, p. 178
Contexto: The new and most powerful union of all will be a union of one — one man, one woman, one worker with special skills, an inquiring mind, and an independent attitude, his creativity intact, his love of life blooming. The union of one will be peopled by one man or one woman who is alive. Such a person is always sought by the intelligent manager.

„Teach the child to respect that which is not respectable and you teach the child the first requirement of slavery: submission to unjust authority.“

—  Gerry Spence

Fonte: Give Me Liberty! (1998), Ch. 14 : The Magical Weapon : Withholding Permission to Be Defeated, p. 160
Contexto: Teach the child to respect that which is not respectable and you teach the child the first requirement of slavery: submission to unjust authority. Children are persons. They are small persons whose perfect souls have not yet been ground through the meat grinder of slavery.
