One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.”   —   Bryant H. McGill

(This quote is derivative of older quotes about listening.  And, it’s a little overdone in my opinion.  When someone gives a speech or lecture, of course you listen carefully, and wait patiently for a Q & A session.  But, when you’re having a conversation with someone – someone who should be considered a peer – you have to listen . . . and you should be given the opportunity to interject.  For the one person to go on and on, and raise their voice when you try to interject a point, is highly disrespectful to *the listener*.  A conversation, or a dialogue, is supposed to be a two way street.  If someone is only interested in giving a monologue, then that person should put on a one-man play, get a late night talk show, or stick to talking to themself in the mirror.   Otherwise, no one is going to want to talk to them.  I’ve never heard of this McGill guy.  He’s on Wikipedia, and he has his own website, and there are links to his books and his quotes, but there is no actual bio on the man.  Nothing that says where he was born, who his parents were, what schools he attended and graduated from, what other jobs he may have held, nothing.  Just that he’s a writer, a speaker, and an activist.  I find that kind of privacy, for someone who is so in the public, a little contradictory.  I don’t think I could trust someone like that.   But, that’s just me, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
