This pinnable quote from Cleveland-born chef Michael Symon is a reminder about the important social skills that can be learned while sitting around the dinner table:

“Sitting down for dinner not only helps you learn, but also teaches you how to listen- which I feel is the most important skill to have. I remember as a kid going around the table listening to everyone’s day. It was hard to have the manners not to interrupt back then, but it taught me the importance of patience and respect and that you learn more listening than you do talking.” ― Michael Symon
