„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 American lawyer 1929
How to Argue and Win Every Time (1995), Context: 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. Ch. 12 The Unbeatable Power Argument : Delivering the Knockout p. 191
