Daily Dose

From The Odd Woman and the City: A Memoir, by Vivian Gornick


"Good conversation is not a matter of mutuality of interests or class concerns or commonly held ideals, it's a matter of temperament: the thing that makes someone respond instinctively with an appreciative 'I know what you mean,' rather than the argumentative 'Whaddaya mean by that?'"

From page 100
