    Billie, what an inspiring commentary on what it means to be a good human being. Thank you for sharing your personal story so unselfishly ;). I don't know if it was Eric Fromm you made that wise comment, but if he did, he was right. Love this answer.

    Another excellent answer. If humans really listened, there would be a lot less lonely people around. A good listener provides healing. Very thoughtful answer, dashing!

    A beautiful answer, Paula. And so eloquently written. Compassion is possibly the highest of human traits. Thank you for humoring with just one trait. Your choice is incredibly lovely.

    I do know that it isn't particularly healthy to go into a relationship with suspicion. Innocent until proven guilty, right? But seriously, trust and trustworthiness are beautiful traits.Thanks for commenting, paras joshi.

    Hmmm. Do you feel limited? And is your answer---There is no characteristic to be had unless our parents and such did not "limit" us?

    Hi RL....so far, we have two votes for empathy. You are correct; it is a powerful faculty---and I appreciate your use of the word sophisticated. Great answer.
