DISCUSSION
[ Also see Agitation Argument Assertions Controversy Conversation Debate Opinion Prejudice Silence Speech Talk Talking ]

The great enemy of knowledge is not error, but inertness. All that we want is discussion; and then we are sure to do well, no matter what our blunders may be. One error conflicts with another, each destroys its opponent, and truth is evolved.
      - Henry Thomas Buckle

Free and fair discussion will ever be found the firmest friend to truth.
      - George Campbell

It is you who are discussed here.
  [Lat., Tua res agitur.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus),
        Epistles (I, 18, 84)

Religious contention is the devil's harvest.
      - Jean de la Fontaine

Men are never so likely to settle a question rightly as when they discuss it freely.
      - Thomas Babington Macaulay

The fair way of conducting a dispute is to exhibit, one by one, the arguments of your opponent, and, with each argument, the precise and specific answer you are able to make to it.
      - William Paley, Archdeacon of Saragossa

The bitter clamor of two eager tongues.
      - William Shakespeare

The skilful disputant well knows that he never has his enemy at more advantage than when, by allowing the premises, he shows him arguing wrong from his own principles.
      - Bishop William Warburton

Whoever is afraid of submitting any question, civil or religious, to the test of free discussion, is more in love with his own opinion than with truth.
      - Thomas Watson
