Gushing seems to be our great national fault. We hear people gushing about the things they have done, and the things they intend to do–about the parties they have had, and the people they have met, and the opinions they have formed. We hear people gushing when they view a beautiful scene, or a work of art, not realizing that they are merely showing their enthusiasm–certainly not their appreciation. It takes time to form an opinion or judgment and to give an appreciation.
