effective listening Quotes

Three of the best book quotes about effective listening
  1. #1
    ″To relate effectively with a wife, a husband, children, friends, or working associates, we must learn to listen. And this requires emotional strength. Listening involves patience, openness, and the desire to understand -- highly developed qualities of character. It’s so much easier to operate from a low emotional level and to give high-level advice.″
  2. #2
    “Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.”
  3. #3
    “Effective listening is more than simply avoiding the bad habit of interrupting others while they are speaking or finishing their sentences. It’s being content to listen to the entire thought of someone rather than waiting impatiently for your chance to respond.”
