The Harper Lee quote is very appropriate. Don’t we all just hear what we want to hear, unless we truly try to listen . . .

Picnic with Ants


“The quieter you become
the more you can hear.”

~ Ram Dass

“Usually when we hear or read something new,
we just compare it to our own ideas.
If it is the same,
we accept it and say that it is correct.
If it is not, we say it is incorrect.
In either case, we learn nothing.”

~ Thich Nhat Hanh

“People generally see what they look for,
and hear what they listen for.”

~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
