Maya Angelou quote: “People forget what you said. People forget what you did. People will never forget how you made them feel.”

Many ways to interpret this quote. It makes me think of qualities that others have modeled for me over the years. One in particular is being present in conversation and making others feel like your hanging on every word they say. Being a good listener, making eye contact, allowing others to speak without interruption is a great way to make people feel appreciated and respected.
