This beautiful response to his eldest son Thom’s 1958 letter, in which the teenage boy confesses to have fallen desperately in love with a girl named Susan while at boarding school.
November 10, 1958
November 10, 1958
We had your letter this morning. I will answer it from my point of view and of course Elaine will from hers.
First — if you are in love — that’s a good thing — that’s about the best thing that can happen to anyone. Don’t let anyone make it small or light to you.
Second — There are several kinds of love. One is a selfish, mean, grasping, egotistical thing which uses love for self-importance. This is the ugly and crippling kind. The other is an outpouring of everything good in you — of kindness and consideration and respect — not only the social respect of manners but the greater respect which is recognition of another person as unique and valuable. The first kind can make you sick and small and weak but the second can release in you strength, and courage and goodness and even wisdom you didn’t know you had.
You say this is not puppy love. If you feel so deeply — of course it isn’t puppy love.
But I don’t think you were asking me what you feel. You know better than anyone. What you wanted me to help you with is what to do about it — and that I can tell you.
Glory in it for one thing and be very glad and grateful for it.
The object of love is the best and most beautiful. Try to live up to it.
If you love someone — there is no possible harm in saying so — only you must remember that some people are very shy and sometimes the saying must take that shyness into consideration.
Girls have a way of knowing or feeling what you feel, but they usually like to hear it also.
It sometimes happens that what you feel is not returned for one reason or another — but that does not make your feeling less valuable and good.
Lastly, I know your feeling because I have it and I’m glad you have it.
We will be glad to meet Susan. She will be very welcome. But Elaine will make all such arrangements because that is her province and she will be very glad to. She knows about love too and maybe she can give you more help than I can.
And don’t worry about losing. If it is right, it happens — The main thing is not to hurry. Nothing good gets away.

Oh Hey! How are you??
Great thanks, how are you doing? Looking for a new assistant actually… ;)
Give us 3 words that describe you best:
Determined, Devoted, Loving
So, can you tell us what it is you actually do?
I run and own an agency called Tangerine that I set up just over two years ago within the world of advertising. Within this agency I represent global production companies and their directors who specialise in filming tv commercials, online content and music videos. I offer innovative ideas to companies to help them generate New Business Procurement and offer Public Relations and Event Management also. The idea being that with a tailored and personable services companies can reach out to people that they want to target using a variety of platforms and communication generating awareness, work and publicity.
...and you're how old?!?!
Nice! How did you get into this?
Then I started off as a ‘Director Rep’ in 2006 for a company called Draw Pictures. They only made music videos and were one of the best in London at that time. They wanted to start making commercials as well so I took on the challenge. I set up a variety of different ways for the company to get noticed, including ‘ADMA’, a one off, charity commercial competition to raise awareness of Carbon Footprint. With a host of industry judges including Trevor Beattie and some great press support, this was a brilliant platform to introduce the music video company into the commercial world.
What’s the most exciting thing you've done in your career so far?
Travelled all over the world, meeting some of the most inspiring and influential producers, actors and directors in history. Including Rutger Hauer, Sir Ben Kingsley, Jonathan Glazer, Tim Burton to name just a few…
What’s been your dullest job?
Within my company, putting together spreadsheets, guest lists or writing meeting reports at 2am on Sunday. I am one assistant down and a deadline is a deadline. Otherwise, I have always had pretty interesting jobs.
Where do you look/go for inspiration?
I look for inspiration everywhere, everyday, in human nature, interaction, behaviour, people, other companies, my competitors and of course - facebook.
What took the most balls?
Setting up alone.
The best advice you have for new graduates about to go into the 'real world’ is....
Talk to everyone. EVERYONE.
