when you'd have preferred to talk.

Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you don't say.

who do more listening than talking.

The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand;
they listen with the intent to reply.
- Stephen R. Covey

and then wait to hear the answer.

Give whatever you are doing
and whoever you are with
the gift of your attention.
- Jim Rohn
