The quickest road to the heart is the ear.” ~Voltaire As much as every human has a need for physical closeness and touch, so too, do we need the closeness of intimacy via being heard. When we make the extra effort to not only ‘hear’ what those closest to us are saying, but actually ‘listen,’ we express one of the greatest forms of intimacy and care. When we listen to others we are showing them that they are important, that we value their hearts. Take the time to listen to the ones you love. You don’t always have to agree, but listening, truly listening, aids in keeping relational harmony, and we all want that. ~Dream. Imagine. Believe. Do. CONQUER!
