5. “You're No One 'Til Someone Lets You Down”
“There's so much to adore in a heart that is blue”
Definition of a character comes through crisis. That is why we loved novels and movies where the main character is broken down, only to discover himself and become interesting. Love, and life, operate more or less under the same terms: It takes a few heartbreaks for an interesting person to truly develop. Rather than harp on the sad times that come from this break, John cheers up the newly defeated; once broken, you gain a new definition, a unique cut that makes you into a dynamic person. This makes Mayer, who has an entire section of Wikipedia devoted to his romantic failures, an absolute master.
