Assertive, bold, and energetic: an aggressive sales campaign.
I can only spell that word correctly thanks to the cheerleaders from junior high basketball days. Since I rode the bench for the entire season, I had plenty of time to listen to the cheers, one of which involved spelling out the word aggressive. :-)
One of the books I've started-and-yet-to-finish is "Flashbang: How I Got Over Myself" by Mark Steele. He is a comedian/film producer/theologian, and his book is quite possibly the funniest book I've ever read. Really ... I've laughed out loud, several times.
But some of it is pretty deep. Like when he claims that true love is aggressive. Here's the quote:
He [God] is continually reaching out [to us] in new ways. If the sunrise doesn't work, He'll go for a miracle. If that doesn't work -- the still small moment. Whatever it takes -- He keeps reaching until His hand is slapped aside. And even in that case, He will reach again. Because He never forgets us.
Johnny Cash did this with June Carter (in the movie, at least). He even got his hand slapped aside a few times. And yet, how many times did he ask her to marry him? Countless.
But I still struggle with that word aggressive. I don't like thinking of love as a sales pitch. Salesmen (not all, but some) are fake, and self-interested. True love is not self-seeking.
How about persistent as an alternative. What do you think?
