7. "I looked at some of her quilting work in progress, and having flunked home economics rather spectacularly myself, I searched for a compliment. Of course I said it was pretty, but I also said I admired the patience and skill it must take to make all those tiny stitches. I said that I've always made such a mess of it when I've tried to do anything that requires that kind of concentration. My father, interrupting my less than elegant attempt, said, "It's been my experience that people who excel at that kind of work never possess a really fine mind." He said it without a trace of rancor in his voice, as if sharing an objective piece of wisdom. He is so clever, so facile with words, that the person he has insulted not only feels insulted, but feels stupid and ashamed for feeling insulted."
