It is often asserted that discussion is only possible between people who have a common language and accept common basic assumptions.

I think that this is a mistake. 

All that is needed is a readiness to learn from one's partner in the discussion, which includes a genuine wish to understand what he intends to say.

If this readiness is there, the discussion will be the more fruitful the more the partner's backgrounds differ.

Quotations are extremely effective at capturing and concisely communicating thoughts and ideas. They can be inspirational but more importantly quotations can help us reveal and assess the assumptions, values and beliefs that underlie the ways in which we perceive the world.

I have compiled over 800 quotations and short excerpts on this website. It is an eclectic mix but most of them are inspirational or insightful in nature and relate to knowledge, learning or personal development in some form.
