My circle of friends have a passion for life and a positive upbeat attitude. They are the best in the world.
I was raised with old-fashioned mid-western values. I think a man should open a ladies door, walk on the street side of the sidewalk, and hold her chair. Occasionally I may pull it out from under you. Just kidding (or am I?). Chivalry is not dead.
I love people with a purpose in life. One of my favorite quotes: "The most visible creators I know are those artists whose medium is life itself. The ones who express the inexpressible-without brush, hammer, clay or guitar. They neither paint nor sculpt-their medium is being. Whatever their presence touches has increased life. They see and don't have to draw. They are artists of being alive."
