This taught me a lesson which I’ve had to learn: the importance of being a good listener, showing the other person you are sincerely interested in what he is saying, and giving him all the eager attention and appreciation that he craves and he is so hungry for, but seldom gets!
Try looking straight into the face of the next person who speaks to you, with eager, absorbed interest, and see the magic effect it has both on yourself, and the one who is doing the talking.
” The shortcut to popularity is to lend everyone your ears, instead of giving them your tongue. There is nothing you can possibly say to an individual that would be half as interesting to him as the things he is dying to tell you about himself.”
