you had an extraordinary impression

With him, you had an extraordinary impression. When he was speaking with you, you continually had the impression that you were, for him, the only person who existed in the whole world. That is something very rare. One second later he would shift his attention to someone else and you no longer existed but that was normal. It seemed very normal to us. It’s something that everyone, to some extent, has a taste of - this potential which is impossible to realize by oneself - it appeared when you saw that man; when you saw him in himself, complete, missing nothing that was happening, noticing even the tiniest details. It was visible in his carriage, in the way he held himself, he was always very calm, quiet, completely and precisely corresponding to what the moment demanded.
Maurice Desselle
