    Question "agree to/with"...

    Hi,
    I'd appreciate it if Sb could check these sentences. I doubt if I know what they really mean.

    "I agree with you."......(Me and you both have the same ideas.)
    "I agree to you."......(We have different ideas, but I want to put an end to the quarrel or Sth.)

    "I agree with that."......(I think it's morally acceptable.)
    "I agree to that."......(I think it's a good suggestion.)

    "I agree to you."......(We have different ideas, but I want to put an end to the quarrel or Sth.) I can't think of a situation where "I agree to you" would be used - it's not natural.

    "I agree with that."......(I think it's morally acceptable.) - I think it's a good idea; I have the same opinion.
    "I agree to that."......(I think it's a good suggestion.) This usually means that you are willing to do something. "Will you work an extra 5 hours every week for a pay rise of 2%? Yes, I [will] agree to that."
    See above.

    Agree to means say yes to somthing; you can't agree to people, you agree to things like plans, suggestions, and so on. Agree with means sharing opinions or having similar thoughts.
