One must learn to listen to understand before developing the reply, if necessary. Many times, silence is the best response. ~ John Knost
Some don’t listen at all. They just feel the need to talk nonsense most of the time!
Understanding should always be primary, however, we get too wrapped up in having our own opinions heard and forget to have the empathy for those talking. ~ Bridget Mathes
Too many people don’t listen to what information is being said, and too eager to talk about something totally irrelevant and it becomes so obvious that one stops offering the advice they are asked about. ~ Jean Hawkins
Listening is an art which comes through patience, answering is a habit which we develop due to not listening. ~ Pallan Bahl
