Have you ever been in awe of someone?

Asked by partyparty (9139points) April 26th, 2010

If I could change places with someone then it would have to be Professor Brian Cox. He has it all – intelligence, personality and good looks.

Have you every been in awe of someone? What are your reasons?

I will never ever forget my best friend Neil who in 8th grade battled and lost out to brain cancer. He never ever skipped a beat and laughed and smiled all the way to the end. I have always prayed I would have that resolve if and when.

Sir David Attenborough, 83, reaches North Pole

This capped it off, if you’ll excuse the pun,
but, still, in every other way, this man is truly a genius, and an artist, and a gentleman.

I have always wanted to look my wife in the eyes and state to her…...............

“Frankly, my dear, i don’t give a damn”.

One day it might happen, but not today.

A longtime friend of mine. I remember the first time I saw her and was rapt because she looked to be the “ultimate female” in my eyes. Not only is she naturally physically beautiful but so is her voice, her carriage, mannerisms, personality, how she treats people, all of her. The feminine I consciously choose to affect is second nature to her, it is her rather than an act.

Admire, yes. In awe of—actually, no, I don’t think so. Everybody is just a person. I’m not beneath anyone else to feel awe of them, nor am I above anyone else to be viewed with awe. We’re all made of the same stuff and look pretty much alike (more alike than different) on the operating table.

That’s the answer I’d love to say with earnest but it’s too PC for me. I look at my friend I’ve known for the past 15yrs and think to myself, “there are racehorses, trail horses, plow horses, there are mules, donkeys and stumpy little ponies. She’s a Lippizaner!

@Neizvestnaya, you think I’m being PC? I mean what I said. I don’t give a fig for PC. If you want to know whom I admire, there’s a list in my profile, but I am not in awe of any of them.

@john65pennington Just not brave enough at the moment? LOLL
@Jeruba But don’t you just admire someone who seems to have it all? (not in a jealous way)
@BoBo1946 Good point my friend, but have you seen Prof Cox? Yummeee LOL

BoBo1946's avatar

@partyparty loll…will leave that one for you girl!

Neizvestnaya's avatar

No, I mean it would be PC or lip service coming from me because what you write is what I think is right and how I’d like to feel instead of how I actually do. Gawd, don’t know if I made any sense at all just now.

Jeruba's avatar

@partyparty, I admire quite a few people. I don’t know what you mean by having it all, but my guess is it’s not the same as what I mean. I am not much interested in celebrities as such. I admire people who have done something.

@Neizvestnaya, I understand.
