The Art of Listening


Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening
when you'd have preferred to talk.
- Doug Larson

Everyone hears what you say.
Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you don't say.
- Anonymous

Most of the successful people I've known are the ones
who do more listening than talking.
- Bernard Baruch

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

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

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are
and then wait to hear the answer.
- Anonymous

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