Excerpt from In a Club Corner: The Monologue of a Man Who Might Have Been Sociable

The reason why few persons are agree able in conversation, thought La Roche foucauld, is because each thinks more of what he intends to say than of what others are saying, and seldom listens but when he desires to speak. La Bruyere was of Opinion that the art of conversation con sists much less in your own abundance than in enabling others to find talk for themselves. Men do not wish to admire you; they want to please. The wit Of conversation consists more in finding it in others than in showing a great deal your self; he who goes from your conversation pleased with himself and his own wit is perfectly well pleased with you.
