The Art Of Dialogue

  1. If someone does not know, is heading in the wrong direction, you may point out the right direction, then walk away.
  2. Don’t be tedious with speech.  Be considerate with what you say and do.
  3. Never turn dialogue into argument or introduce anger or meanness, tolerate mistakes and walk away from a fight.
  4. Stop quarrels with diplomacy.
  5. Take care of yourself and others to avoid or recover from errors of judgement.  This is a singular distinction made by those people who make good philosophers.  Don’t tell them what to do, show them through the Socratic  Method or a means that will not cause a bunch to your nose!
