win through your actions, never through argument – law 9 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 9

Any momentary triumph you think you have gained through argument is really a Pyrrhic victory: The resentment and ill will you stir up is stronger and lasts longer than any momentary change of opinion. It is much more powerful to get others to agree with you through your actions, without saying a word. Demonstrate, do not explicate. –Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (review)
