When we aren’t curious in conversations we judge,

When we aren’t curious in conversations we judge, tell, blame and even shame, often without even knowing it, which leads to conflict.”

Inventory: “Four be the things I am wiser to

Inventory:

“Four be the things I am wiser to know:
Idleness, sorrow, a friend, and a foe.
Four be the things I’d been better without:
Love, curiosity, freckles, and doubt.
Three be the things I shall never attain:
Envy, content, and sufficient champagne.
Three be the things I shall have till I die:
Laughter and hope and a sock in the eye.
— Dorothy Parker, The Complete Poems of Dorothy Parker
