What would you consider to be the greatest compliment a woman could give to a man courting her?

Who can ever forget Jack Nickolson’s famous compliment of a woman that he gave Helen Hunt in the movie As Good as it Gets? “ You make me want to be a better man.”

I surmised in a novel excerpt the compliment the Queen of Sheba may have given King Solomon. The novel is a contemporary application of a story form to promote understanding of proverbs and ancient wise sayings in relation to our modern times.  


“For what greater expression of love or compliment could a woman give to a man than to tell him she wants him to be the father of her child?”
