What is arguing?

Famous quotes containing the word arguing:

    Cinderella and the prince
    lived, they say, happily ever after,
    like two dolls in a museum case
    never bothered by diapers or dust,
    never arguing over the timing of an egg,
    never telling the same story twice....
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all others are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.
    —H.L. (Henry Lewis)

    There is no good in arguing with the inevitable. The only argument available with an east wind is to put on your overcoat.
    James Russell Lowell (1819–1891)
