When to Shut Up and Listen

“The Time to stop talking is when the other person nods his head affirmatively but says nothing.”


The Ears Outnumber the Tongues

“We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.”



A man asked Mother Teresa:

“When you pray, what do you say?

“I just Listen.”

“And what does God say?”

“He also just listens.”

Stop, Think, and Listen

“Conscience is the root of all true courage; if a man would be

brave let him obey his conscience.”

–James Freeman Clarke
