“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” Winston Churchill
I will add: Wisdom is knowing when to do each.
Most people err to one side or the other. Some speak out easily, often, and authoritatively. Their voices are heard and they can change the world. Others, listen closely and carefully, enveloping others with their presence. They can change lives. If you are gifted with the boldness to speak out or the empathy to listen wholeheartedly, use those gifts!
