I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #181...
"The best way to win an arguement is to start off by being right."
On the surface, this seems a bit cocky or conceited. Looking into it further, I believe what Hogg is suggesting is to get your facts straight before you start blabbing your mouth.
How many times do people, start spouting off stuff before they have even done their homework? You know the characters. There's 'Loud mouth Leon'. There is 'Always right Alex'. Let us not forget about 'Disagreeing Danny'.
Don't get me wrong; you could be totally in the know and be talking passionately about something and the other may be disagreeing. That's ok and it will happen. The point is that more than a few arguements could be avoided if people researched and knew what they were talking about with facts before the discussion elevated into an arguement.
Knowledge and information is a good thing. Correct information is even better.
That's my view...... What Say You?
