Boomerang Tongue

I have found that one of the most powerful and moving forms of communication is when you repeat something back to someone that they originally said to you. Never have their ears been so responsive and alert and their heart so open.

They are probably flattered that you remembered what they said, but mostly they have never been in such perfect agreement with your words. In fact you might even see them sit up a bit straighter and notice a pure sparkle of pride in their eyes as they turn their head and smile a little at the poetic and sensible sound of their own words.

And I don’t mean it as a dirty trick, I mean it as a sincere and direct way to reach someone.
