​​​​"May we continue to have our differences, for scholarship would be a dull affair without them, but may we continue to have them with respect, affection, and the true spirit of scholarship." 
- Donald E. Queller (The Venetian Patriciate) [also see: Dennett's "How to Compose a Successful Critical Commentary," Graham's "Hierarchy of Disagreement," and "What Unites Us"]

"...my ultimate purpose, either in writing or in lecturing, is not so much to convince readers or listeners of the merits of my argument as to engage them in an ongoing discussion." 
- James M. Buchanan (Economics from the Outside In)
