quotation debate

down through recorded history human beings have said a lot of things worth repeating. some of my favorite things are quotations. but a philosophy teacher once said to me that the problem with conventional wisdom is that it's immensely contradictory. for example, using conventional wisdom we might say "look before you leap," but conventional wisdom also tells us that "he who hesitates is lost." so i was thinking it might be possible to have a debate using only quotations. somebody could offer up a quotation and someone else could find an equally convincing quotation to the contrary. thought it might make an intersting format for debate. so, that being the premise, i'll get things started.
