We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak. -Epictetus

Great listeners, are equivalent to great learners, and within listening great understandings can be found.  Communication is the way to teach and learn, we all have something to share.  Bettering one’s listening skills is primarily based on having the patience of trying to understand what another person has to share.  Some people dislike reading, while others are simply quick to talk before listening, I personally feel that it we have two ears to listen and one mouth to shout.

A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying.  In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is his is disagreeing with. -Kenneth A. Wells

To agree or disagree, it is stated that you can’t control who you love, and you will not always agree with what whom you love has to say, but you should at least learn to listen.  Listening is the most essential tool in any relationship, as it paves the way for a great understanding and reflection of the persons involved.  Agreeing to disagree is a great position to consider when you and another person can’t come to the same conclusion.  It actually shows individuality and a sense of feeling that it’s okay to have a difference in opinion, all while allowing for less of an argumentative situation.
