I dislike arguments of any kind. They are always vulgar, and often convincing.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), Anglo-Irish playwright, author. Lady Bracknell, in The Importance of Being Earnest, act 4 (1895).
Wilde also wrote, "Arguments are extremely vulgar, for everybody in good society holds exactly the same opinions."M"The Remarkable Rocket," published in The Happy Prince and Other Tales (1888).
