I am always a bit speechless when I hear a brilliant quote. Anytime I discover one I think about what the message means to me. Quite often I realize that I already appreciate and utilize the wisdom, and other times, it becomes an epiphany that changes my outlook for the better. I found one today that made me stop in my tracks. I hope this is something you’ll choose to reflect upon too.
“We have been given two ears and but a single mouth in order that we may hear more and talk less.”
— Greek philosopher Zeno of Citium
I found this quote on a PR agency’s website. This is such a powerful statement and a motto that I think every communications agency and every person should consider. Truly listening during a discussion really opens doors to knowledge – and I have gained plenty of it throughout my life by understanding this gem of wisdom.
Do you have any profound quotes you’d like to share? I’d love to hear them.
