Listening quotes
Listening
One who cares is one who listens.

- Clarke, J. Richard
People should talk less and draw more. Personally, I would like to renounce speech altogether and, like organic nature, communicate everything I have to say visually.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he knows something.

- Mizner, Wilson
My parents taught me how to listen to everybody before I made up my own mind. When you listen, you learn. You absorb like a sponge-and your life becomes so much better than when you are just trying to be listened to all the time.

- Steven Spielberg
Listening: A wise old owl sat in an oak. The longer he sat, the less he spoke. The less he spoke, the more he heard. Why can't we be like that wise old bird?

Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right.

- Erskine, John
After listening to a lecture on evolution by a science professor, a student wrote a poem and titled it The Amazing Professor. The poem read: Once I was a tadpole when I began to begin. Then I was a frog with my tail tucked in. Next I was a monkey on a coconut tree. Now I am a doctor with a Ph.D.

To listen closely and reply well is the highest perfection we are able to attain in the art of conversation.

- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Opera once was an important social instrument -- especially in Italy. With Rossini and Verdi people were listening to opera together and having the same catharsis with the same story, the same moral dilemmas. They were holding hands in the darkness. That has gone. Now perhaps they are holding hands watching television.

- Berio, Luciano
Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.

- Pooh's Little Instruction Book
The less you talk, the more you're listened to.

- Buren, Abigail Van
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.

- Ernest Hemingway
Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. When we really listen to people there is an alternating current, and this recharges us so that we never get tired of each other. We are constantly being re-created.

- Brenda Ueland
My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence.

- Edith Sitwell
The democratic youth lives along day by day, gratifying the desire that occurs to him, at one time drinking and listening to the flute, at another downing water and reducing, now practicing gymnastic, and again idling and neglecting everything; and sometimes spending his time as though he were occupied in philosophy.

- Plato
Words today are like the shells and rope of seaweed which a child brings home glistening from the beach and which in an hour have lost their luster.

- Connolly, Cyril
Most of the successful people I've known are the ones who do more listening than talking.

- Baruch, Bernard M.
