25 Quotes About Communication

Good Communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Who doesn’t enjoy a good hearty conversation with family and friends? These can be enjoyable and memorable times to sustain us and build us up. Heart to heart conversations with friends and family are the glue in our life. But not all conversations, discussions or “talks” are memorable in the positive sense.

Sometimes we need to have ‘crucial conversations’ with people around us, both personal and professional. Sometimes things need to be discussed and wrinkles need to be ironed out in order to move on. Depending on the relationship and the intensity or importance of the subject, without effective communication skills, these kinds of  “intense fellowships” can get heated fairly quickly.

The essentials of effective communication are really quite simple, but, in their simplicity, they may seem difficult. They require such steps as slowing down, listening, being present and being attentive. In essence, they require a different mindset and way of viewing other people.

I hope that you find the following 25 quotes both inspiring and challenging (in a good way).

(9) “It takes one to tell, and two to misunderstand.”
H.C. Paye

(10) “We all struggle with our failure to communicate and our failure to reach beyond fear to love people.” ― Mira Sorvino

(12) “There is no communication in this world except between equals.”

(14) “Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening than talking.” ~ Bernard Baruch

(15) “Two monologues do not make a dialogue.” ~ Jeff Daly

(16) “Storytellers, by the very act of telling, communicate a radical learning that changes lives and the world: telling stories is a universally accessible means through which people make meaning.”~ Chris Cavanaugh

(17) “Years ago, I tried to top everybody, but I don’t anymore, I realized it was killing conversation. When you’re always trying for a topper you aren’t really listening. It ruins communication”. – Groucho Marx

(18) “Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.” Jim Rohn

(23) “You never know when a moment and a few sincere words can have an impact on a life” ~ Zig Ziglar

(24) “Developing excellent communication skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership.

President and CEO of National Semiconductor Corp
