Speak clearly, if you speak at all; carve every word before you let it fall.
Whether we’re conscious of it or not, our work and personal lives are made up of daily rituals, including when we eat our meals, how we shower or groom, or how we approach our daily descent into the digital world of email communication.
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
The dynamic drives of modern economic growth, in the countries that entered the process ahead of others, meant a reaching out geographically; and the sequential spread of the process, facilitated by major changes in transport and communication, meant a continuous expansion to the less developed areas.
There is a world of communication which is not dependent on words.
I’m the biggest fan of face-to-face communication.
Dad could talk about peace and love out loud to the world, but he could never show it to the people who supposedly meant the most to him: his wife and son. How can you talk about peace and love and have a family in bits and pieces – no communication, adultery, divorce? You can’t do it, not if you’re being true and honest with yourself.
People make music to get a reaction. Music is communication.
Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.
Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.
I’m a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they’re interested in.
The more articulate one is, the more dangerous words become.
The more we elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.
Blessed is the man, who having nothing to say, abstains from giving wordy evidence of the fact.
When I’m putting some communication out on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, I think that it’s helping me, my brain, you know, because it’s always somehow stimulated by people who are sending things to me. And it works both ways. It’s great. My brain is very happy about it.
There are many reasons our prayers may lack power. Sometimes they become routine. Our prayers become hollow when we say similar words in similar ways over and over so often that the words become more of a recitation than a communication.
The major advances in speed of communication and ability to interact took place more than a century ago. The shift from sailing ships to telegraph was far more radical than that from telephone to email!
If technique is of no interest to a writer, I doubt that the writer is an artist.
Literature flourishes best when it is half a trade and half an art.
I think there’s a worry that an excessive use or an almost exclusive use of text and emails means that as a society we’re losing some of the ability to build interpersonal communication that’s necessary for living together and building a community.
I won’t compare ants and people, but ants give us a useful model of how single members of a community can become so organized that they end up resembling, in effect, one big collective brain. Our own exploding population and communication technology are leading us that way.
Digital communication is completely different from in-person, face-to-face conversations. One will give you surface insights, and the other really gives you depth.
The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue.
A writer is someone who can make a riddle out of an answer.
To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.
Missions is not about sending missionaries, and missions is not about doing missions. Missions is about the communication of truth to men.
There are a lot of things that Slack gives you that email doesn’t when you think about internal use. Switching to Slack from email for internal communication gives you a lot more transparency.
Communication and communication strategy is not just part of the game – it is the game.
The best way to solve problems and to fight against war is through dialogue.
I am fourth-generation deaf, which means everyone in my immediate family is deaf. So I grew up always having 100 percent accessibility to language and communication, which was wonderful and something so many deaf people don’t have.
To succeed, you will soon learn, as I did, the importance of a solid foundation in the basics of education – literacy, both verbal and numerical, and communication skills.
Be still when you have nothing to say; when genuine passion moves you, say what you’ve got to say, and say it hot.
The temple of art is built in words.
People live too much of their lives on email or the Internet or text messages these days. We’re losing all of our communication skills.
