The Measure of a Man
Where but in Paris to read….
.“There are many things that will tell you the true measure of a man – the way he kisses, the way he holds his fork, the way he talks to his mother on the phone…..A man of grace and humor. A keeper.”*
C’est magnifique! And I have a few more:
his genuine kindness toward others
the way he takes your hand tenderly & unexpectedly
a smile in his eyes, a twinkle, a spark
the confidence to be honest
his quality of giving
his work ethic
the ability to apologize…and mean it
the way he helps you on with your coat
the way he appreciates you – your kindness toward him, your meals, your smiles
The combination of strength with tenderness and caring makes a man.
