Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
- Sir Winston Churchill


  1. Sometimes the listening proves to be more difficult!

  2. Oh my, what a contradiction! Yet, what a great truth.
    Thanks Jana.


  3. Tracie - and what a shame, because listening always gives the best ammunition.

    Mervi - I thought you would like this quote.

  4. Well, I don't know if I should say this but this was my first thought: To listen takes a truly disciplined person - to speak just takes a person. But let me go one step further, what a blessing when a person speaks a message that brings meaning to life. I love hearing with an open heart to those that speak with wisdom.

  5. Karen - You are so right. Brian and I have talked recently how discipline and dedication is lacking in every area of America. I believe true success is also founded through discipline and dedication.

  6. Jana, This is a great quote because both parts are true. It's like the quote about "the wisdom to know the difference."
