emersonquoteI haven’t read the book that contains this quote but they are wise words and is something I need to practice more:

“Effective listening is more than simply avoiding the bad habit of interrupting others while they are speaking or finishing their sentences. It’s being content to listen to the entire thought of someone rather than waiting impatiently for your chance to respond.”

From ‘Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff … and it’s all small stuff’ by Richard Carlson (1997)
