“The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”
George Bernard Shaw

“Speak when you are angry - and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.”
Dr. Laurence J. Peter

“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.”

Communication works for those who work at it.”
John Powell

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives”
Anthony Robbins

“He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.”
Lao Tzu

“Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.”
Anne Morrow Lindbergh



Love these...all so true!

'Truth be told' I am lucky to count you as a friend!
Loved this post~welcome back!

So true about speaking when you are angry. I'm trying to learn not to do that ever again. Great quotes.

Yes...Monday is special, as it is still part of my weekend!

These quotes are great!

I'm a huge fan of Epictetus' quote: "...two ears and one mouth..." - my daughter stressed this to be a favourable position for a parent to take!

I'm not such a fan of Lao Tzu's quote: "He who know, does not speak..." as I feel sometimes it's important to share that which you know...again, thinking daughter and life's lessons.

Ahh...the art of communicating...it is true...less is best!
So it's best I stop here! (smiles and chuckles)

Cheers, Jenny

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
