Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.

Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in order to choose the best path?' If you don't ask those questions, your governance will not be good.
I always had a philosophy which I got from my father. He used to say, 'Listen. God gave to you the gift to play football. This is your gift from God. If you take care of your health, if you are in good shape all the time, with your gift from God no one will stop you, but you must be prepared.'
When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Listen! Clam up your mouth and be silent like an oyster shell, for that tongue of yours is the enemy of the soul, my friend. When the lips are silent, the heart has a hundred tongues.
I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.
Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture of leisure as gratification. To put it another way: people who work must take the time to relax, to be with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport.

Vincent Van Gogh
I feel more grounded and more settled than I ever have. I don't know whether that is to do with my spirituality or whether I'm wiser about life, but as you age you become more selective about what you listen to, devote your time to and who you hang out with.
When a woman is talking to you, listen to what she says with her eyes.
Don't quit. Never give up trying to build the world you can see, even if others can't see it. Listen to your drum and your drum only. It's the one that makes the sweetest sound.
Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.
John C. Crosby
Your conscience is the measure of the honesty of your selfishness. Listen to it carefully.
This is what customers pay us for - to sweat all these details so it's easy and pleasant for them to use our computers. We're supposed to be really good at this. That doesn't mean we don't listen to customers, but it's hard for them to tell you what they want when they've never seen anything remotely like it.
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less.
If people work together in an open way with porous boundaries - that is, if they listen to each other and really talk to each other - then they are bound to trade ideas that are mutual to each other and be influenced by each other. That mutual influence and open system of working creates collaboration.

It is not necessary that you leave the house. Remain at your table and listen. Do not even listen, only wait. Do not even wait, be wholly still and alone. The world will present itself to you for its unmasking, it can do no other, in ecstasy it will writhe at your feet.
Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.
It's good to be selfish. But not so self-centered that you never listen to other people.
Never, never listen to anybody that try to discourage you.
Now more than ever we need to talk to each other, to listen to each other and understand how we see the world, and cinema is the best medium for doing this.
C. S. Lewis
