Lot of times don't we carried away with the debate. Our mentality is set that either we have to convince the other person our views, in case if we fail most of the time not to accept the other persons views and term that other person is a silly person or say something like "you are arguing on silly matter" or "you are dumb to understand it" etc, because the other person does not agree with us isn't it? But what actually we miss in this process is we fail to understand the root cause of the difference in opinion. Instead of learning something which we don’t know from others, we close the doors and block the rays of knowledge that are emitting from the other person.
What exactly other person wants? Does he want us to agree upon his view or he wants to verify if he is correct or he wants just to debate for fun (aimless) But most of the time it’s the former one... what do you say? (In this case I would like verify, if my view/understanding is correct)...
Sometimes we get to the extent of raising our voice, to convince the other person about our point of view and fail to understand or hear his view (may be he could be correct fact wise but not logically correct).

Once we know that its difficult to convince a person on any topic, usually we avoid debating with him and just laugh at his ideas or just pretend we agree with him. Isn’t it? (I usually pretend when confronted with such persons. J)

Just to quote, take the example of Galileo, he said earth rotates round the sun and not vice versa but people at that time put him under prison and humiliated him, as it was against the their spirituality.. Why? (Because his theory was not understood by others)

After scientific approach now we know he was correct. So, our mind does need some proof to believe things isn’t it? Even God exists or not is also a debate going around for ages together.

Sorry, too much philosophical.

What do you say..?

Quotes!! Nothing but the Quotes collection!!!

Life doesn't give you the people you want; instead it gives you the ones you need to teach you, to hurt you, to love you- to make you exactly the way you should be.

“I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.”
-Kurt Cobain quotes

"Love never dies. It changes its forms and manifestations."

" You know it's love when you cant fall asleep because reality is better than your dreams."
--Dr. Seuss quotes

Assumptions are the termites of relationships.

-- Henry Winkler

"Most Relationships fail not because of the absence of love; Love is always present...its just that one loves too much, and the other loves too many."

"We have no choice of what color we're born or who our parents are or whether we're rich or poor. What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we're here."
--Mildred Taylor

Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.
--David Joseph Schwartz

Right thinking is the ability to foresee what things must be done, and what things must be avoided, to reach the goal we have set. Foresight of this kind is based on a remembrance of past experiences and a correct estimate of the present condition.
-- Dr. Bradley

Standing for what you believe in,
Regardless of the odds against you,
and pressure that tears at your resistance,
...means courage

Stopping at nothing,
And doing what's in your heart,
You know is right,
...means determination

Keeping a smile on your face,
When inside you feel like dying,
For the sake of supporting others,
...means strength

Helping a friend in need,
No matter the time or effort,
To the best of your ability,
...means loyalty

Doing more than is expected,
To make another's life more bearable,
Without uttering a single complaint,
...means compassion
