Quote of the Day (Kate Murphy, on Digital Distraction vs. Listening)

“Digital distraction keeps the mind occupied but does little to nurture it, much less cultivate depth of feeling, which requires the resonance of another’s voice within our very bones and psyches. To really listen is to be moved physically, chemically, emotionally, and intellectually by another person’s narrative.”—American journalist Kate Murphy, You're Not Listening: What You're Missing and Why It Matters (2020)
