“Whatever be the detail with which you cram your students, the chance of their meeting in after-life exactly that detail is infinitesimal; and if they do meet it, they will probably have forgotten what you taught them about it. The really useful training yields a comprehension of a few general principles with a thorough grounding in the way they apply to a variety of concrete details. In subsequent practice the student will have forgotten your particular details; but will remember by an unconscious common sense how to apply principles to immediate circumstances.”

I have been reading some of your archives, you had some really great posts there. What ever happened with that girl you liked (she could always get a gym membership, a little weight lifting 3X a week, I have a fantastic facialist that is affordable in brooklyn that has a skin cream that will hydrate her 5 years younger... the secret to shiny hair is Kerastase all the way)
I say, if she still makes you feel good say yes and then get her to... If you do get married, belineder if you will have me, I will make my way in to NY and do the make-up free.
