Arguing With Fools

“Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.”
― Mark Twain
Good Morning!
I wish you peace and health. I hope prosperity shines on your door and charity in your heart. I hope love and selflessness motivate you to be your best. I hope you walk a mile in another’s shoes and give them back. I hope you take your own journey and it isn’t a tragedy.
Here are a couple of quotes that have lived in my heart for years:
“You can’t win an argument. You can’t because if you lose it, you lose it; and if you win it, you lose it.”
― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
“I have come to the conclusion that there is only one way under high heaven to get the best of an argument— and that is to avoid it. Avoid it as you would avoid rattlesnakes and earthquakes.”
― Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People
Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People. Excerpt from the chapter titled “You Can’t Win an Argument,” in which Carnegie writes:
Nine times out of ten, an argument ends with each of the contestants more firmly convinced than ever that he is absolutely right.
You can’t win an argument. You can’t because if you lose it, you lose it; and if you win it, you lose it. Why? Well, suppose you triumph over the other man and shoot his argument full of holes and prove that he is non compos mentis. Then what? You will feel fine. But what about him? You have made him feel inferior. You have hurt his pride. He will resent your triumph. And –
“A man convinced against his will
Is of the same opinion still.”
