“When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know; but when you listen you may learn something new.” (Dalai Lama)
One day in high school, I was walking down the sidewalk with my mother. We needed to cross the street. Instead of going to the intersection and crossing at the cross walk, I decided to do it sooner since I figured I could make it before the next car went by. My mother grabbed my arm and pulled me back.
“What are you doing? There are cars coming”, said my mother.“Don’t worry mom”, I replied confidently. “Pedestrians have the right of way”.“Yeah and you’ll be DEAD RIGHT”, she retorted.
