Law 9 of Robert Greene’s 48 laws of power says- win through your actions, never through arguments.
Now this law is really close to my heart, and Robert Greene is wise as always when he says that if you defeat someone in an argument you are bound to leave a wound in that person’s ego/heart and a wounded person almost never forgives. So, why waste time in word war???? Action is the best way of proving your true intentions, worth!
Now being the one who almost never argues I really liked it when a worldly wise person supported my stand, actually I really don’t remember arguing with someone or quarreling with someone when someone gets on my nerves (there have been occasions) I explode but never argue or quarrel- now this explosion is a vice, very suicidal vice but that is another story!
