"I don't wish to be impertinent, Miss Walters, but it's an argument worth rehearsing. You never know; someone else might want to know the point of it all one day."

In the movie, An Education, student Jenny argues with her headmistress about the value of a traditional education vs. leaving school to marry an older man who has exposed her to art, music and travel.

Do you know what the arguments are against your points? Are you prepared to address them?

It's a quick way to lose credibility if you're not prepared to stand behind your assertions.

See the clip below with the full context of the argument.
