From Paper and Ink: Elegance


"This is the first time I have met someone who cares about me when he is talking: he's not looking for approval or disagreement, he looks at me as if to say, 'Who are you? Do you want to talk to me? How nice it is to be here with you!' That is what I meant by saying he is polite - this attitude that gives the other person the impression of really being there."
