Listening Quotes

You can determine how confident people are by listening to what they don't say about themselves.

Brian G. Jett

In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing.

Robert Ingersoll

Live among men as if God beheld you; speak to God as if men were listening.

Seneca

If people have personal conversations about very emotional matters in public, and people reveal parts of their body that were originally kept covered, and pornography is becoming semi-respectable, it makes you think the push for greater freedom and divesting yourself of inhibitions is a real human need. I'm 54, so I'm further back upon the road. We certainly did a fair amount of divesting ourselves of inhibitions, but there seems to have been a quantum leap in the last half a generation. Maybe we're destined to be freer, but it's taking odd forms, like showing your big gut to all the world and discussing the future of your marriage at a bus stop with 30 people listening in.

Martin Amis

Tattoos are cool because they dont belong on your body, but you put it there to say something about yourself. Much like my rolls of fat. That shit does not belong on a human body. And I put it there to say something about me. I dont like fruit. I dont like it! Long bike ride? Im out. Hot dog eating contest? Im listening.

Dave Attell

Listeners should rejoice right now, because there are believers all across your listening area that are praying now. And I would say that if you can't attend the rally, you can pray. And God calls us to fall on our faces and our knees and cry out to Him and confess our sins. And I would just ask your listeners to do that now. Cry out to a Holy God. He wants to hear us, He will hear us if we will confess our sins and cry out to Him. Our children are worth it and obedience to God demands it.

Michele Bachmann

I like listening to it just as I like looking at a fuchsia drenched with rain.

James Agate

Poetry will never win the war on terror But neither will error abetted by error We girly men are not afraid Of uncertainty or reason or interdependence We think before we fight, then think some more Proclaim our faith in listening, in art, in compromise So be a girly man & sing this gurly song Sissies & proud That we would never lie our way to war

Charles Bernstein

Imagine, if you will, the dispiriting experience of listening to an awful cover of one of your favorite songs. That's how I felt sitting through Die Another Day, the 20th official outing for [James Bond]. This is a train wreck of an action film ... What's missing from this movie? Any real sense that we're watching 007 rather than a generic spy in a tuxedo.

James Berardinelli

Music for me is like a balsam. I always whish that when people are watching me or listening to me, they take with them this energy I receive from God.

Simone Bittencourt de Oliveira

I only talk from my heart so open yours when you listening.

Johnson Barnes

So to you, or anyone else who has spent four minutes on me in some way-- listening to just one song, or watching one of my videos.Thank you. I love you like I love sparkles and having the last word. And that's real love.

Taylor Swift

What's interesting is, in the months leading up to this, I was probably at the lowest ebb in my life. I was feeling just teenage angst. I didn't know if I wanted to continue living that kind of despair. I was praying to a God I didn't know was listening.

Paul David Hewson

I was in my room listening on headphones on a tape recorder. It's very intimate. It's like talking to somebody on the phone, like talking to John Lennon on the phone. I'm not exaggerating to say that. This music changed the shape of the room. It changed the shape of the world outside the room; the way you looked out the window and what you were looking at.
