The most called-upon prerequisite of a friend is an accessible ear.
- Maya Angelou
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are
and then wait to hear the answer.
Everyone hears what you say.
Friends listen to what you say.
Best friends listen to what you don't say.
Your eyes must not determine what you see. pay attention.
- Mary Anne Radmacher
Give whatever you are doing
and whoever you are with
the gift of your attention.
- Jim Rohn
