Hearing Quotes

I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Hearing from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy

However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

The student showed the shattered cup, saying,
