Quote of the Week

"Silent" and "listen" are spelled with the same letters.  - Unknown



These two important words go hand in hand since you can't do the second without being the first. But really listening to someone is more than just being politely quiet while awaiting your turn to speak. It is listening intently and with as much interest as we display when we are speaking. Perhaps we should listen unto others as we would have them listen unto us.  

Today's lesson is to think about how we listen.

  1. Hi Linda .. couldn't agree more - listen, absorb, empathise and then think about entering the conversation ..

    Great post - cheers Hilary

  2. Oh, this line is wonderful: "Perhaps we should listen unto others as we would have them listen unto us."

    It fits the quote and your interpretation. I love this:~)

  3. Thanks Hilary. One of my pet peeves is being interrupted before I can finish my sentence.

    Sara, thanks! I'm glad you liked that line. It seemed to sum things up neatly.

  4. WOW, Linda. I love ALL of this!! I can't wait to tell Kelly about the same letters being in the both of them, she's been quoting some of those lately.

    I shall truly listen from now on, to other people!!

    Thanks for the sweet inspiration.
