Dose of Gross on CONVERSATION

The reason why so few people are agreeable in conversation is that each is thinking more about what he intends to say next, rather than about what others are saying now.

As far as playing jazz, no other art form, other than conversation, can give the satisfaction of spontaneous interaction.
