Listening quotes
Listening
Listening to a news broadcast is like smoking a cigarette and crushing the butt in the ashtray.

- Kundera, Milan

- Baldesar Castiglione
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?

- Freeman, James Dillet
Anybody who ask for advice nowadays just hasn't been listening.

Opera once was an important social instrument -- especially in Italy.

A politician will always tip off his true belief by stating the opposite at the beginning of the sentence. For maximum comprehension, do not start listening until the first clause is concluded. Begin instead at the word "but" which begins the second, or active, clause. This is the way to tell a liberal from a conservative -- before they tell you. Thus: "I have always believed in a strong national defense, second to none, but ... " (a liberal, about to propose a $20 billion defense cut).

- Frank Mankiewicz
No one every listened themselves out of a job.

- Coolidge, Calvin

- Mignon McLaughlin
One of the best ways to persuade others is with your ears - by listening to them.

- Rusk, Dean
Opportunities are often missed because we are broadcasting when we should be listening.

- Dyer, William G.
