To Be Impressed is Impressive

Being impressed is an art form. It is not a passive phenomenon universally experienced by everyone who stands in the presence of genius; it is an aesthetic experience that can only be achieved through relentless dedication.

It takes concentration and effort to be the kind of person who maintains their capacity to be inspired by the beauty and brilliance of others.

To recognize and celebrate that which is praiseworthy in one’s peers requires a kind of confidence and maturity not demanded of those who are too cool to be moved by anything other than their own coolness.

Great is the spirit that invokes the admiration of the crowd. Greater still is the spirit that is not too great to play audience to another’s greatness.

  1. Oprah Winfrey.

    I didn’t watch her talk show that ran over the years,
    but you have to live in another universe not to know
    of her. Worldwide.

    I have watched s couple of biographies about her, She
    is a force of nature.

    I watch several of her new OWN channel programs. Such
    as her Master Class.

    Her one-on-one interviews with many different people are
    very much an impressive person being impressed with
    others and their life stories. Humans are her classroom.

    “Great is the spirit that invokes the admiration of the crowd.
    Greater still is the spirit that is not too great to play audience
    to another’s greatness.”
