Principle # 20

A lesson I learned about listening from “Pulp Fiction” and my marriage.

In a deleted scene from Pulp Fiction, Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) meets Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and the first thing she asks him is, “When in conversation, do you listen, or do you just wait to talk?”

Vincent thinks about it and then responds, “I wait to talk, but I’m trying to listen.”

For more of the context of this quotation, read the full article, “Do You Listen, Or Do You Just Wait to Talk?”:
