The Perfect Response


"A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said 'I love your pictures -- they're wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.' He said nothing until dinner was finished,
then: 'That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove."

I am memorizing this! I am so charmed by his response. the measure of talent isn't by tools but human skill!
