又从哪儿弄来些心灵鸡汤呵?

Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the gratefully and appreciating heart.

I had quoted "Benjamin Franklin".

So that proves the feeling is universal.

No matter how pretty a woman is, she does have her flaws.

No matter how handsome a man is, he does have his shortcomings.

Old Ben Franklin was such a polymath I can't count on the fingers of one hand how many achievements he had accomplished in one lifetime.

He had one indispensable skill -- time management.

Less clever 2 b found after posting so long.

I am so sorry.

I never came to forums below "Talk to China Daily" because there's so little time for me to write about my true love -- China -- that I had no time to notice anything else.

The proof is that I never even noticed that beautiful woman in your avatar, while almost every other poster in the forum had already befriended her.

'nuff said.  Your shorthand looks like the work of an alien from Jupiter.
