Description

The Bible talks about a man being heard for his much speaking. Grandma would say, "It is better to be seen rather than being heard." Does this really mean that we should be "quick to hear and slow to speak" or is it better to listen? Many of today's youth population are misunderstood and sometimes refuse to integrate their thought because of preconceived interpretation. What can be done to bring the meeting of the minds? Think back to the relationships we had with our grandparents. They could bring a smile to your face with an effortless approach to redirection and keeping our attention. Somehow age did not push us apart but rather was a magnetic field that had a pull on us to bond. A musician once said, to play an instrument, you have to learn to listen and listen to learn. Additionally, it was said that we should say more and speak less. I have concluded that communication is important but the words used make the difference. Here lies the purpose of quotes and sayings. These brief statements can have much meaning. They are often so brief there is no need to read between the lines. For sure, there will be nuggets discovered and treasures to behold. Remember in the present of others without pen or paper mental notes are being recorded. Listen to the simple phrases and capture hopefully some importance of their exchange of ideas. Now that we are here . . . let's read, and listen to . . . Best Sayings.show more

About Linwood Best

Linwood Best has been challenged by the many requests to repeat what he had said during a presentation or in conversation that nudged him into writing a sequel to Best Quotes. Often we do not realize the impact of words moreover the interpretation thereof. Words spoken in various settings; understood or misconstrued will either promote harmony or disallow it. When we value what we say and its intention, we become mindful of how they enter the ear; compute through the mind and land on the heart. Some think nothing of what is said, while others forget the good and seemly never the bad. That is why it is so very important to "say more and speak less" in actuality your words have value. For Linwood, Best Saying has provided a bridge to innovation and self-expression in different settings; one on one, parenting, youth groups, faith-base and workshops. He is driven by and believes that with God's help and "in all thy getting, understand" there we will find the solution to everything. It is not the volume of your words rather the value that matters most.show more
