The first duty of LOVE is to LISTEN. -Paul Tillich.
Listening doesn’t mean obeying, it means making a true effort to hear and understand what the other person is saying and feeling. Think how much better relationships would be if parents really listened to their children; if children – minors and adults – really listened to their parents and if husbands, wives and significant others really, really listened to each other. Listening is an act of love and respect. – Michael Josephson
