An Irish woman's social, political and domestic commentary
Wednesday, July 16, 2003
Kevin Myers writes about George Best today in the IT. He is admiring of his football but damming of his personality. I think this paragraph is a wonderful piece of writing...and don't we all know someone who fits the description?
"He cared for nothing, was feckless and unreliable, the man who, when you needed him most, would always let you down.
But he had - has - charm. Charm is a curse that protects its possessors from the hard lessons of life. It beds women, begets celebrity and bemuses the censorious. The truly charmed need learn no lessons, make no concessions and conciliate no one, for the rest of the world will inevitably move to accommodate them. "
