DISPUTE

How many a dispute could have been deflated into a single paragraph if the disputants had dared to define their terms.
      - Aristotle

'Tis strange how some men's tempers suit,
  Like bawd and brandy, with dispute,
    That for their own opinions stand fast,
      Only to have them claw'd and canvass'd.
      - Samuel Butler (1)

The more discussion the better, if passion and personality be eschewed; and discussion, even if stormy, often winnows truth from error--a good never to be expected in an uninquiring age.
      - William Ellery Channing

The pain of dispute exceeds by much its utility. All disputation makes the mind deaf; and when people are deaf I am dumb.
      - Joseph Joubert

      - William Shenstone
