What is Conversation?

"The true spirit of conversation consists in building on another man’s observation, not overturning it."—Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton (1803–1873), British novelist/politician

 

What do you think of this quotation?

For me, I have found that more harm can come from tearing someone's opinion down, than from simply allowing that person to express their opinion.  In other words, sometimes to be silent when I disagree is better than trying to change someone's opionion. 

I also find that sometimes amazing ideas or answers to questions come from listening to another person's point of view.  It changes my perspective and so a greater truth can come to light.

Some times being silent means much more than what a book does....
