Frank Tyger (also known as Franklin Tyger) was a creative soul; with a natural ability to draw he used to sketch portraits of his family members. Frank was an American Journalist and Cartoonist. He edited his High School paper named Tilden Topics which offered him his first experience with world news.

Frank became well known as the master of the one-liner quotes, here are a few: 

u “There is much to be said for not saying much.”

u “Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose.”

u “Be a good listener. Your ears never get you in trouble.”

u “Hearing is one of the five senses. But listening is an art.”

u “Professionalism means consistency of quality.”

u “Always tell yourself the difference between running a business and ruining a business is “I.”

I have never heard of Frank Tyger before your post.  He was very creative.  I wonder how someone can say something a little differently or from a little different angle after so many creative people have come and gone in the past.

Dorie the first quote is one that should be practiced more.  ☺️

"There is much to be said for not saying much."

Those are all good quotes, but there is something very telling in the last quote!

I think listening is a more important trait for real estate professionals than talking.
