comment Is there a term for someone who “can see multiple perspectives”?
None of the other answers yet seem to quite get at the particular ability of seeing multiple perspectives. Omniscience certainly goes too far, but it definitely covers it.

comment Is it could or can?
Don't think we didn't notice your substitution of proven for proved.

comment Is there a word for 'love letter'?
I found the word billet-doux, which is not technically one word or English for that matter, and it's not a particularly common word (I'd never heard it).

comment “the” is in my business name, capitalize it or not?
I think it can be whatever you like, but you have to be consistent. That online classifieds site is "craigslist, Inc." and Yahoo! has an exclamation point for goodness sake.

comment “There lie targets” vs. “there lies targets”
It's correct, it's just a bit clunky. For instance, you don't say where they are lying. It might help to clean up the sentence if you specify that. Like, some intermediate targets lie between you and your goal or in your path, lie intermediate targets. Without more context, it's hard to know.

comment “the” is in my business name, capitalize it or not?
That being said, how one would choose to stylize their company name in a logo, for instance, wouldn't have to follow this guideline.

comment “There lie targets” vs. “there lies targets”
Do you need to use lie? Can't you just say there are intermediate targets?
