> WORTH THINKING ABOUT: THE SWEETNESS OF FRIENDLY ARGUMENTS
> "The most fruitful and natural exercise of the mind, in my opinion,
> conversation. I find the use of it more sweet than of any other action of
> life; and for that reason it is that, if I were now compelled to choose, I
> should sooner, I think, consent to lose my sight, than my hearing and
> speech... The study of books is a languishing and feeble motion that heats
> not, whereas conversation teaches and exercises at once. If I converse
> an understanding man, and a rough disputant, he presses hard upon me and
> pricks me on both sides; his imaginations raise up mine to more than
> ordinary pitch; jealousy, glory, and contention, stimulate and raise me up
> to something above my self..."
> >From "The Essays" of Michel Montaigne.
