On Arguing

“…You can’t put fight into a man’s guts if he hasn’t any fight in him. There are some of us so cowardly that you can’t even make heroes of us, not even if you frighten us to death. We know too much, maybe. There are some of us who don’t live in the moment, who live a little ahead, or a little behind. My mind is on the peace treaty all the time.”

-Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer
