Examples of listener in a Sentence

  1. Wilson Mizner:

    A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something.

  2. Claude Lévi-Strauss:

    The musical emotion springs precisely from the fact that at each moment the composer withholds or adds more or less than the listener anticipates on the basis of a pattern that he thinks he can guess, but that he is incapable of wholly divining. If the composer withholds more than we anticipate, we experience a delicious falling sensation; we feel we have been torn from a stable point on the musical ladder and thrust into the void. When the composer withholds less, the opposite occurs: he forces us to perform gymnastic exercises more skillful than our own.

  3. Edward Bulwer-Lytton:

    The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.

  4. Bryant McGill:

    Let people speak. Let people disagree. Communicate. Listen. Have high-respect, if not for your opponent, then for your own comportment and conduct as a good listener.

  5. Kenneth A. Wells:

    A good listener tries to understand what the other person is saying. In the end he may disagree sharply, but because he disagrees, he wants to know exactly what it is he is disagreeing with.
