A friend once said that we were created with two ears and one mouth so that we listen more and speak less.
Rarely we keep quiet. I know of people who can't live without the noise. So when they are alone, they just keep the TV on. Rarely do we keep quiet and listen to our inner voice.
Visit a wilderness area, waterfall, stream away from the crowd and hear the sounds of silence.
guess it sees what all human beings are doing and upto??
sorry .. i will be a little political today going by the phrase and the lovely image – they both suit our govt which is indeed a great listener and never says anything .. let the nation yell on them .. they just listen !!
A perfect picture of yin and yang (the dark and the light)…
Amazing Capture .
We do learn much more when the keep still and listen.
silence is gold and doggies know this better than men/women
silence sometime a good way to express your feeling…when words not.
silence allows one to hear one's thoughts
Agree completely to this one!
Cute pic. But the quote is so true – in silence one gains great wisdom.
He reminds me of the dog from OUR GANG! 🙂
Awwww, that is a cute dog! Oh yeah, the quote is pretty good too. 😉
The doggie is sooo cute and the saying is very true….I've got to start listening. Have a great weekend. I also posted about Quiet.
I definitely agree to that quote!
Listening is a great quality. Not many have it.
JO ON FOOD, MY TRAVELS AND A SCENT OF CHOCOLATE
We all need a little peace and quiet. Open your ears to the sounds of nature.
So true…and I love that guy/gal.
I am by nature someone who can never be quiet. I am always talking or when I am not talking, my mind is working over-time. Sometimes, I wish I could stay quiet. And I have also found that there are times when I can quieten the noises outside but my inner cacophony is too much to be drowned..
Perfect photo with the dog's left ear perked up. Yes, listening is very valuable to me.
Such a great doggie.
It's true, ony when we are quiet we can hear many things. Co-incidentally my blogpost is also on Quiet.
Unless we quieten our mind and the voices within it is very difficult to hear that inner voice !
One who talks more gets used to hearing and loving his own voice.There is power in 'quiet'and one who believes in this power,not only hears..he actually 'listens'.
Yes, learning to be quiet and really listen.
We were born with two eyes and two ears but only one mouth for a reason.
The dog has such a great expression! It makes you wonder what he is thinking.
