“Break a vase, and the love that reassembles the fragments is stronger than that love which took its symmetry for granted when it was whole.”
Derek Walcott

Donn comments when I'm talking about giving women orgasms..

Now see, I rather like the wisdom in the sadness....

It's the 'taken for granted' that's sad.

I, like the view, still said...

I like Mr Walcott

I also find the sadness very positive and wise. Perhaps gwtm hasn't had the benefits of the painful experiences we have had.

I think that this is what Joni meant when she said you don't know what you've got til it's gone...or was it Average White Band..
Pick Up The Pieces Uh-HUH!

MJ knows darn well that if I am to become the master of all media that I must practice giving speeches at the drop of a hat.
All of the others like Adolf and Mao loved to hear themselves talk and talk and talk.

I'll bet that I know more about female orgasms than both of those ninnys so nyeh!

OK maybe not Mao, but fo sho Adolf.
Eva Braun pffft!

I think if you're benchmarking yourself against despots of the 20th century , you might not have got the hang of what women are looking for.

When I'm on a public speaking engagement, I make sure I always finish in under an hour. When I'm with a woman, it's different.
