Dr. Samuel Johnson
(1707 - 1784)
Johnson having argued for some time with a pertinacious gentleman; his opponent, who had talked in a very puzzling manner, happened to say, 'I don't understand you, Sir;' upon which Johnson observed, 'Sir, I have found you an argument; but I am not obliged to find you an understanding.'
Oscar Wilde
(1854 - 1900)
Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
