Today’s Quote, Courtesy Of My Starbucks Cup

“You can learn a lot more from listening than you can from talking. Find someone with whom you don’t agree in the slightest and ask them to explain themselves at length. Then take a seat, shut your mouth, and don’t argue back. It’s physically impossible to listen with your mouth open.”

— John Moe
Radio host and author of Conservatize Me

  1. Wow, that’s funny. I heard this on NPR the other day but I don’t remember in what context. I love John Moe. He does Weekend America, which I don’t think you guys get. Anyway, great quote, Starbucks!

    • Actually, I think we get Weekend America. I was listening to a program on NPR last night. Some 80-year-old pianist talks to musicians and has them play. The conversations were awful-boring, but the music was nice.
