Quotes

Listen

Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words.
~Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Neighbours

Discover the fulfilment of intimate relationships with flesh-and-blood neighbours and team-mates in concrete place and time, and we escape the pressure of mainstream media to channel intimacy only as virtual embrace.
~Jose Panate-Aceves and John Hayes

Rain Poetry

The rain to the wind said,
You push and I’ll pelt.
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged–though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt.

~Robert Frost
