“To listen to someone is to put oneself in his place while he is speaking.”–Simone Weil (via –Interesting points made among the tweets)… I interpret this as saying that listening involves an act of imagination akin to role-playing or acting, actually pretending you’re the person forming these words you’re listening to. It seems like this sort of technique might be most useful when you already know what someone is saying but don’t know why they are saying it or telling you this. Not useful at all when you don’t know what they’re saying.
