Quotes About Talking About Others

"Shes always polite and kind, but her words lack the kind of curiosity and excitement youd normally expect. Her true feelings- assuming such things exist- remain hidden away. Except for when a practical sort of decision has to be made, she never gives her personal opinion about anything. She seldom talks about herself, instead letting others talk, nodding warmly as she listens. But most people start to feel vaguely uneasy when talking with her, as if they suspect theyre wasting her time, trampling on her private, graceful, dignified world. And that impression is, for the most part, correct." - Author: Haruki Murakami
