The art of discussion

I find I am much prouder of the victory I obtain over myself, when, in the very ardor of dispute, I make myself submit to my adversary’s force of reason, than I am pleased with the victory I obtain over him through his weakness.
Michel de Montaigne,The Complete Essays

The aim of argument,or of discussion,
should not be victory,but progress.
Joseph Joubert
