Shut Your Mouth
We spend the first couple of years of our lives in relative silence. We may cry, babble, and make noise, but much of our early years is spent listening.
Imagine how much we learn about the world around us in those relatively quiet years of observing.
Now imagine how much you could learn about others by stifling your desire to be loquacious and listen instead — truly, intently listened.
“Silence is one of the great arts of conversation.” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
