1800s Advice and Etiquette for Men

Arguments should never be maintained with heat and clamour, though we believe or know ourselves to be in the right: we should give our opinions modestly and coolly; and, if that will not do, endeavour to change the conversation by saying, 'We shall not be able to convince one another, nor is it necessary that we should; so let us talk of some thing else'.

Practical Morality, Or, A Guide to Men and Manners... (1813). United Kingdom: J. Walker.
