“There is no greater honor than someone can give you than to grace you with their time. And if you demonstrate that you have value to offer them or entertainment, they will spend more time with you. And the more time someone spends with you, the more they tend to like you, and the more they’re willing to take you up on whatever offers you make them”. Ezra Firestone
