My dear,

It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.

If you divide people into good and bad, you’ll have one heck of a time grouping them. For people constantly change in how good or bad they are. Today’s good may be tomorrows bad, and vice versa.

You won’t have to work as hard if you divide people by whether they’re charming or tedious. Sure some charming people become tedious, and sometimes tedious beings learn to be charming. But overall tedious people stay tedious, and charmers remain charming.

Falsely yours,
