9781331728702: The Chippendales (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Chippendales

Though only forty-eight hours had elapsed since his coming, Blaisdell believed that he had made a favorable impression on the inmates of the house. He desired people to like him; people always had liked him - as a lad and at school and at college. In the beginning he had never thought of the effect he produced; indeed, he did not now think about it at the time, for he was not self-conscious; but he had examined his own winning way and intended to persevere in it. Did this consist in his wide-awake and sociable address? Or his incisive power of stating what he had to say? Or his cheerful, optimistic point of view? Listlessness and indifierence were repugnant to him. Ever since he could remember, it had been natural to him to be pleasant to those with whom he was brought in contact, and the sound of his own voice had had no terrors for him. How many people were listened to grudgingly because they were inefiective in their delivery! No one hesitated to interrupt them, and they were thrust into the background. He liked to keep his listeners silent until he had finished. Every - day humor appealed to him, and he not only enjoyed an enter taining anecdote but could tell one engagingly, a faculty which was also characteristic of Abraham Lincoln, most illustrious of self-made men.
