Whose shoes have you tied?
Professor Rudolph Arnheim tells this story about his lasting gratitude for one such [small] kindness: “At a faculty reception, a British lady taught me how to tie my shoes with a double knot so that they keep tied more securely and still come apart in a jiffy,” he said. “Kneeling on the floor in the midst of the chattering sherry-sippers, she tied my shoes. I remember her twice a day ever since.”
