“Listening to people keeps them entertained.”

—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.”
