Ask and Listen

It is better to earn the trust and respect of one of your children, than to gain notoriety and adulation of the masses.

If you must speak, ask a question.

Unless what you say benefits the other person, don't say it.

It's not what I think that counts, nor is it what you think that counts. It's what I think you think and what you think I think, that really counts.

No one listens to a person operating out of self-interest alone.

Sin has many tools, but a lie is the handle that fits them all.

If you attack another person's beliefs, you are creating an enemy.

Moderation in temper is always a virtue. Moderation in principle is always a vice.

Emperors are overthrown. Empowerers are revered.

Before you state your case, gather the evidence, especially what motivates the other person.

Marriage is not total agreement. It is looking in the same direction together.

Listening without bias or distraction is the greatest value you can pay another person.

From the Wisdom of Denis Waitley
