Having a deep conversation with someone who has a brilliant mind and beautiful soul is a new way of romance.
Conversation has a kind of charm about it, an insinuating and insidious something that elicits secrets just like love. The first ingredient that attracts me in conversation is truth, the next good sense, the third good humor, and the fourth wit.
Good conversation is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after. I like a person who can keep a conversation going no matter how random the topics get, when nothing is distinctly remembered, but a general effect of pleasing impression.
