“Bien écouter et bien répondre est une des plus grandes perfections qu’on puisse avoir dans la conversation.”
François de la Rochefoucauld 1613-1680
To listen closely and reply well is the highest perfection we are able to attain in the art of conversation.”

“Hmm, what was that?”
I’m afraid this is something I’ve found myself saying all too often over the years. I am genuinely interested in other people and their thoughts and opinions, but I’m also a bit of a worrier, so often totally irrelevant issues get in the way. I am trying, though, and I think I have gradually been getting better at– oh, excuse me a second, I think I may have left the gas on.
What an absolutely stunning photo and a marvellous quote. So delighted to have discovered your blog through French Friday! Will be sharing all of the links on the next Friday post! Thanks for the follow too! Meilleurs voeux! TJ
