Conversation

From British political philosopher Michael Oakeshott:

Conversation is not … a contest where a winner gets a prize, … it is an endless, unrehearsed, intellectual adventure in which in imagination we enter a variety of modes of understanding the world and ourselves. And, we are not disconcerted by the differences, or dismayed by the inconclusiveness of it all.

I really like that. Good conversation is good for the soul.
