quotes on listening to your spouse

Wisdom From the World

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.” – Anthony Robbins

“The biggest communication problem is we do not listen to understand. We listen to reply.” – Anonymous

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit, in front of someone, yet you feel that person with your heart,, you feel like you have known that person forever…connections are made with the heart, not just the tongue.” – C. Joybell C.

Wisdom From the Word

“I’m speaking as plainly as I can and with great affection. Open up your lives. Live openly and expansively.” – II Corinthians 6:13 (The Message)

“Turn your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of understanding.” – Proverbs 2:2 (The Message)

“Slowness to anger makes for deep understanding; a quick-tempered person stockpiles stupidity.” – Proverbs 14:29 The Message

Keep Me Real, Lord!

“Lord, help me to communicate my truth to my spouse courageously and lovingly. Help me to use my words creatively and kindly. When my mate speaks, give me a curiosity that seeks to understand his/her separateness. Help me never to assume that I know everything there is to know about my spouse.
