I don’t know if there’s a specific word for it, but I just love quotes. I found this in my collection. I feel that it really is true.
We spend most of the time trying to make our point, prove that we are right and establish our superiority. Not that I’m saying it’s a bad thing, but maybe once in a while we need to listen just for the sake of listening.
They say “In today’s world, we listen not to understand but to retort.” Is that the root of our problems (at least some of them)?
