  1. This reminds me that it’s actually pointless to debate simply because most people who engage in debates are talking to prove that what they’re saying is right, not to be convinced by the other party.

  2. Or, if they’re anything like me, they’re talking to figure out what they actually believe!

  3. Yes, we can say that people argue because they want to convince themselves about that thing they’re talking about. Because if they’re already convinced, why still talk about it, right?

    Thanks for this beautiful quote.
