Listening is to pay attention and closely hear what others have to say.
“Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.”
—Dr. Joyce [Diane Bauer] Brothers Psychologist, Author
“Listening to people keeps them entertained.”
—Mason Cooley U.S. Aphorist
“Much unhappiness comes from walking alone. When there are several, it's somewhat different. I must get into the habit of listening to others, for what the others say concerns me, too.”
—Alfred Döblin German Expressionist Novelist
“Every person in this life has something to teach me--and as soon as I accept that, I open myself to truly listening.”
“Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.”
—Robert Frost Poet
