Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Sometimes we need someone to just listen. Not to try and fix anything or offer alternatives, but to just be there…to listen. An ear that listens can be medicine for a heart that hurts.” (Steve Maraboli)

Quote #2

“Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you.” (Unknown)

Quote #3

“The most important part of communication is surprisingly not talking, it is listening.” (Elizabeth Bryant)

Bonus Quote

“Empathy is a respectful understanding of what others are experiencing. Instead of offering empathy, we often have a strong urge to give advice or reassurance and to explain our own position or feeling. Empathy, however, calls upon us to empty our mind and listen to others with our whole being.” (Marshall B. Rosenberg)
