I Hear You by Yehuda Berg There is a story about a great sage who, at the end of his days, was so sick and weak that he could only whisper. Yet he continued to instruct his students, who sat very close and listened for hours. A local teacher who observed this was amazed and when he asked a student why they were so attentive, the student responded: “We know if one of us had to speak with our teacher, and we had to whisper, he would bend over to hear what we had to say for as long as necessary.” If we want to reach a level where we can teach others, we must first learn to listen to others.
