Why I avoid most arguments

Unless you can convince a person that listening to you is in his or her own best self-interest, you are wasting valuable time

My Dad always said “he who is convinced against his will is of the same opinion still” and “there are none so blind as those who do not wish to see.” My adage? “You can’t save people from themselves.”

Bottom line: unless it’s personally gravely important, I’m not gonna argue about it.
