From Paper & Ink

"Adam said, 'I was thinking about your father and I thought I'd like to talk to a Hamilton.'  Will relaxed a little in his chair. 'He was a great old talker. Somehow he made a man better than he was,' said Adam.  Lee looked up from his darning egg. 'Perhaps the best conversationalist in the world is the man who helps others to talk.'"

- East of Eden, John Steinbeck
