Thanks to Sunjay Nath (www.sunjaynath.com) for a great quote of the day:
"Never argue with an idiot. The idiot will drag you down to his level and then beat you with his experience."
Nath's weekly tips are targeted mainly to students, but they contain wisdom for all ages. As Nath goes on to say, "Healthy conflict and heated discussions are one thing, but as soon as any argument feels personal, you should try to exit that conversation and come back to it at a later time when the participants aren't as heated.
"This way you'll maintain control over yourself and you won't find yourself being beaten by an idiot."
