Famous quotes containing the word discussion:

    Power is action; the electoral principle is discussion. No political action is possible when discussion is permanently established.
    HonorĂ© De Balzac (1799–1850)

    If we had had more time for discussion we should probably have made a great many more mistakes.
    Leon Trotsky (1879–1940)

    It was heady stuff, recognizing ourselves as an oppressed class, but the level of discussion was poor. We explained systemic discrimination, and men looked prettily confused and said: “But, I like women.”
    Jane O’Reilly, U.S. feminist and humorist. The Girl I Left Behind, ch. 2 (1980)
