27.
A new lens to look through. Hear the pain in people's speaking. People who have an ear to hear can hear. You will no longer tolerate what you used to tolerate. A second point of reality. Declare a new future. There are no right answers. There is no is. Give people breakdowns. It's the loving thing to do. What's being revealed here? Dogs don't have things wrong. Wrong disempowers people. Upsets indicate a right that's been violated. Notice when you are angry that you are the only one around. The only constant thing is you. Business is made up. It's invented. We invent our world through language. If it really turns you on, you may want to inform your face. There is no right way. A chair is only a chair because we say it's a chair.
Pancoast, Mal

28.
When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.
Ernest Hemingway

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

35.
The less you talk, the more you're listened to.
Buren, Abigail Van

36.
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.
Hugh Elliott

37.
As I get older, I've learned to listen to people rather than accuse them of things.
Po Bronson

38.

Kin Hubbard

39.
Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.
Dorothy Sarnoff

40.
To be listened to is, generally speaking, a nearly unique experience for most people. It is enormously stimulating. It is small wonder that people who have been demanding all their lives to be heard so often fall speechless when confronted with one who gravely agrees to lend an ear. Man clamors for the freedom to express himself and for knowing that he counts. But once offered these conditions, he becomes frightened.
Murphy, Robert C.

41.
There are people who, instead of listening to what is being said to them, are already listening to what they are going to say themselves.

Epictetus

49.
Nature has given us two ears, two eyes, and but one tongue-to the end that we should hear and see more than we speak.
Socrates

No one really listens to anyone else, and if you try it for a while you'll see why.
Mignon McLaughlin
