Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know. Get around people who have something of value to share with you. Their impact will continue to have a significant effect on your life long they have departed. 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.
When you really listen to another person from their point of view, and reflect back to them that understanding, it's like giving them emotional oxygen. Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply. Both times I was in India, I could not get people to listen to each other. I had to literally tell people to listen to each other and tell them that they can't get creative and find alternate solutions if they don't listen to each other. There's a lot of arguing and justifying.
Language comes into being, like consciousness, from the basic need, from the scantiest intercourse with other human. Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you’re in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.
What we now want is closer contact and better understanding between individuals and communities all over the earth, and the elimination of egoism and pride which is always prone to plunge the world into primeval barbarism and strife... Peace can only come as a natural consequence of universal enlightenment... Nikola Tesla

Semiotics is a general theory of all existing languages... all forms of communication - visual, tactile, and so on... There is general semiotics, which is a philosophical approach to this field, and then there are many specific semiotics. I don't see the point of having 80 million people online if all they are doing in the end is talking to ghosts in the suburbs. Berlusconi is a genius in communication. Otherwise, he would never have become so rich.
Communication quotes by Anita Borg
Also aboutWomen, Feminism, Leadership, Ideas, Information, Internet, Sharing
Leaders of the future will have to be visionary and be able to bring people in - real communicators. These are things that women bring to leadership and executive positions, and it’s going to be incredibly valuable and incredibly in demand. The Internet enables us to share the ideas we have without having to create another hierarchy.
Communication quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
Also aboutInformation, Sharing, Facebook, Relationships, Sociality, Internet, Business, People
By giving people the power to share, we're making the world more transparent. Back, you know, a few generations ago, people didn't have a way to share information and express their opinions efficiently to a lot of people. But now they do. Right now, with social networks and other tools on the Internet, all of these 500 million people have a way to say what they're thinking and have their voice be heard. Facebook is really about communicating and telling stories... We think that people can really help spread awareness of organ donation and that they want to participate in this to their friends. And that can be a big part of helping solve the crisis that's out there. The thing that we are trying to do at facebook, is just help people connect and communicate more efficiently. At Facebook, we build tools to help people connect with the people they want and share what they want, and by doing this we are extending people's capacity to build and maintain relationships. I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that's true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life. I actually do think you're seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that's a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what's going on with them. The question isn't "What do we want to know about people?", it's "What do people want to tell about themselves?"

Communication quotes by Maya Angelou
Also aboutUnderstanding, People, Traveling, Bigotry, Relationships
Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. It's very important to know the neighbor next door and the people down the street and the people in another race
