“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new,” – Dalai Lama
I love this quote.
I think we are all guilty of rabbitting on, but if we do stop to listen to those around us, we may indeed learn something, whether it just be knowledge or something of personal importance.
In an argument, we can only argue our own point, but sometimes, hard as it may be, if we listen to the other party, we may learn another perspective, showing that we are not always right.
If we listen to the innocent comments of children, we may garner a different perspective to our own jaded, mature one, with regards to many things.
So today Peeps, take the time to listen, as well as talk. It will do you good!
