An enviable sentence
"I have thus stated my opinion on a point on which we differ, not with a view to controversy, for we are both too old to change opinions which are the result of inquiry and reflection; but on the suggestions of a former letter of yours, that we ought not to die before we have explained ourselves to each other."  ---Thomas Jefferson to John Adams (1813)

Civility & friendship!
