"The surest sign of wisdom is constant cheerfulness". - Count.

This is not a quote per se, rather a thought by Viktor Stepanovich - 'But in setting upright the cocktail glass in the aftermath of the commotion, didn't he also exhibit an essential faith that by the smallest of one' actions one can restore some sense of order to the world?".


message 3: by Gunter (new)

Gunter Klatt | 3 comments “After all, what can a first impression tell us about someone we’ve just met for a minute in the lobby of a hotel? For that matter, what can a first impression tell us about anyone? Why, no more than a chord can tell us about Beethoven, or a brushstroke about Botticelli. By their very nature, human beings are so capricious, so complex, so delightfully contradictory, that they deserve not only our consideration, but our reconsideration—and our unwavering determination to withhold our opinion until we have engaged with them in every possible setting at every possible hour.”
