I think the problem with John Bolton is he disagrees with President Trump’s foreign policy. He would be closer to John McCain’s foreign policy.

One of the hallmarks of higher education and of democracy is the ability to converse with people with whom we disagree.
Any time scientists disagree, it’s because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem.

I disagree with the advice of ‘write about what you know.’ Write about what you need to know, in an effort to understand.
I look for strong people. I don’t like people who’ll say yes to everything I might bring up. I want people who can argue and disagree and have a point of view that’s reflected in the magazine. My dad believed in the cult of personality. He brought great writers and columnists to The Standard.
It is in the interest of Americans to find out what those wanting to be president think about a wide range of challenges and what they might do about them. We should want to get their take on the wisdom of past decisions, what they agree and disagree with, and why.

A lot of people disagree with me on this, but the people who want somebody not of Washington, it’s serious this time. It’s – the disconnect between the Republican Party establishment and the Democrat establishment and the people of this country is longer, broader, wider than I’ve ever seen it.
After all, if freedom of speech means anything, it means a willingness to stand and let people say things with which we disagree, and which do weary us considerably.

Many of the liberal people tend to say, “Well, the solution is government.” I couldn’t disagree more. The government cannot solve the problem and never will.

The people to fear are not those who disagree with you, but those who disagree with you and are too cowardly to let you know.

There’s a magical energy and power from the ocean. I was born in a room overlooking the sea, in the middle of a storm. Perhaps, then, it’s not surprising that shores touch my soul. Science might disagree, but I think there’s a difference in the air on a coast – the positive ions, perhaps.
I try to write 1,000 words. Some people say it’s not about the quantity but about the quality. I disagree. You need to write a lot in order to figure out what’s good and what’s crap.
When I disagree with a rational man, I let reality be our final arbiter; if I am right, he will learn; if I am wrong, I will; one of us will win, but both will profit.

In the United States Senate, one of the things I observed in the early days – and it’s still used – and that is that you take someone’s argument and then you misrepresent it and misstate and disagree with it.

Staying true to my vision, to the word as it comes to me, to my own aesthetic judgments, even when they disagree with the majority culture, is very important to me, and I think important for every artist. It’s what we have: our voice, our intuition, the truth as we understand and know it.

If you are in a meeting and you disagree mentally then you have an obligation to disagree verbally!

So people ask, ‘But how can you work for a friend?’ I say it’s because I know that the magazine is called ‘O.’ The bottom line is somebody has to have the final word. Oprah’s not right all the time, but her record is pretty damn good. That’s not to say you can’t disagree.

When the conversation started to move to the things that we disagreed on, Donald Trump moved it back to the things that we could agree on. I think that’s the way you get deals done, right? You and I might disagree 80% of the time but that still gives us 20% opportunity to try to work things out.
My hope is that each of the villains I write will have his or her own motivation that readers can understand, whether they agree or disagree.
