    Inspirational Quotes

    About Communication

     

    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" 
    A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

     

    “The trouble with talking too fast is you may say something you haven't thought of yet.”
     --Ann Landers

    “Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly  endless.”
    --Mother Teresa

    “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen." 
    --Winston Churchill

    “I like when my friend says, ‘I’m your best friend.’”

    —T.K. (Dorn Kindergartner)
