Why its not just about what you say, but also about listening.

Not so long ago, I was conversing with a teacher in a high school, and he said a one-liner I will not forget, Listen and silent are spelled with the same letters. At first impression you might just say, “Hmm. That’s a neat little piece of info.”  But if you think about this a little…

Work, walk towards the poor, and lack nothing.
