The Art of Listening

This is a quote I’m pondering today.

‘When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.’ — The Dalai Lama.

Isn’t that wonderful?

It’s difficult sometimes to do this. Sometimes we wait to speak rather than listen to genuinely understand.
