Listen. Do not have an opinion while you listen because frankly, your opinion doesn't hold much water outside of Your Universe. Just listen. Listen until their brain has been twisted like a dripping towel and what they have to say is all over the floor.
Stephen R. Covey
Every person in this life has something to teach me--and as soon as I accept that, I open myself to truly listening.
Peter F. Drucker
The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

When I feel lost and can't make a decision, I just stop and get quiet. I take a time-out. I ask myself, How does this feel? What do I want my life to be like? I try not to listen to the shoulds or coulds, and try to get beyond expectations, peer pressure, or trying to please- and just listen. I believe all the answers are ultimately within us.
Dr. Joyce Brothers (Diane Bauer)
Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it's an early form of participation in what goes on.

Listening is important to me because if you don’t listen you can’t become a successful leader. If someone is trying to tell you something important and you don’t listen then you won’t know what to do or how to help. Not listening can cause major problems. If a doctor doesn’t listen to his patient he is not going...

Mystery Princess PSubmitted by Angela
My hero isn't stunningly beautiful. My hero doesn't talk; she isn't even human. My hero is my Arabian mare, Missy. She listens to me when no one else will. She carries my burdens, releases me from them. I feel a bit of true freedom when I mount her. True friends last forever.
