When I get ready to talk to people, I spend two thirds of the time thinking what they want to hear and one third thinking about what I want to say.
Alfred Brendel
The word 'listen' contains the same letters as the word 'silent'.
Amit Kalantri
A slip of the foot may injure your body, but a slip of the tongue will injure your bond.
Amit Kalantri
You can not control the thought, but you can control the tongue.
Ana Claudia Antunes
How can I shut downIf you don't open up??
Ashlecka Aumrivani
Talking empties you of the noisy silence within.
Bangambiki Habyarimana
I used to be afraid about what people might say or think after reading what I had written. I am not afraid anymore, because when I write, I am not trying to prove anything to anyone, I am just expressing myself and my opinions. It's ok if my opinions are different from those of the reader, each of us can have his own opinions. So writing is like talking, if you are afraid of writing, you may end up being afraid of talking
C.S. Lewis
Walking and talking are two very great pleasures, but it is a mistake to combine them. Our own noise blots out the sounds and silences of the outdoor world; and talking leads almost inevitably to smoking, and then farewell to nature as far as one of our senses is concerned. The only friend to walk with is one who so exactly shares your taste for each mood of the countryside that a glance, a halt, or at most a nudge, is enough to assure us that the pleasure is shared.
Catherine Gilbert Murdock
When you don't talk, there's a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.
Charise Mericle Harper
Even though friends say they are interested in your life, they never really want to talk about you as much as you want them to. (68)
Criss Jami
Drunken men give some of the best pep talks.
Dejan Stojanovic
What we call life is only talk of nature.
Dexter Palmer
Her voice never stops: even when I sleep, it is a shining silver thread running through most of my dreams and all my nightmares, whispering, beseeching, threatening: One word from you is all I want. Just speak one word, and we'll begin. Name, rank, and serial number, perhaps the misquoted lyrics from a popular song: anything will do. From there we'll move with slow cautious steps to gentle verbal sparring, twice-told tales, descriptions of the scarred and darkest places of our old and worn-out souls. I'll love you back; I'll tell you secrets
Deyth Banger
When people are talking about soul and other stuff and how other people communicate - it's not scary it's something normal???...Okay then but why you are afraid of horror films with paranormal stuff?? Why???
Deyth Banger
Science... internet... and women have one in common all end up as biatch.... So it's very bitchy, when they don't stop talking.
Dianna Hardy
The thought of talking about it made Pueblo's gut ache, but then he thought of everything that Amy had been through
Fredrik Backman
She just smiled, said that she loved books more than anything, and started telling him excitedly what each of the ones in her lap was about. And Ove realised that he wanted to hear her talking about the things she loved for the rest of his life.
Haruki Murakami
I all of a sudden got to feeling like talking to people. Whenever I look at the ocean, I always want to talk to people, but when I'm talking to people, I always want to look at the ocean. I'm weird like that.
Haruki Murakami
It's easy to talk big, but the important thing is whether or not you clean up the shit.
Hillary Frank
Writing feels safer somehow. I can catch myself before I say the wrong thing.
Israelmore Ayivor
Great people don't only know what to say; they also know how to say it.
John Green
How can you read and talk at the same time? I asked.Well, I usually can't, but neither the book nor the conversation is particularly intellectually challenging.
Johnny Depp
You gotta be careful: don't say a word to nobody about nothing anytime ever.
Justin Taylor
We can't talk about it, or I know she won't so I don't even try, but it's what goes unsaid between people tat builds up like masonry. You have to either knock the bricks out with other things, or let them keep stacking until eventually you are alone in a room.
Karen Quan
My heart is burning a hole in my chest and every time you speak to me, it keeps sinking, and I'm left with nothing but ashes. I wish she were talking to me, because the more she speaks to me, the more my heart flutters like a rising phoenix.-Karen Quan and Jarod Kintz

Loren Weisman
Issues or fears of confrontation tend to showcase unhealthy and unprofessional communication. If you are trusting someone to tell you all the good, bad and ugly, but they only give you the good out of their fears and confrontational issues… the bad and the ugly can grow worse and worse quickly.
Malak El Halabi
There are people you meet that light the darkest corners of your mind. They don't ask you questions. They don't intimidate you. They just look at you and they smile. They smile because they know what it feels like to have been where you are or because they have this inner ability to understand where you are coming from. They don't hold your hand. They don't hug you. They don't tell you it's going to be okay or shower you with words of love. They give you some of their time and a bit of their presence. And something only few people really master:To listen genuinely to what you have to say.
Margo T. Rose
Oh stupid, silly, awkward me;Will I never, ever see?People babble, speak, and talk;All I can do is stand and gawk!
Margo T. Rose
The corner doesn't mind listening to the stupid things I say;Sometimes it's the only one keeping me from running away.And the corner never tells me things I'd rather never know;We became the best of friends long, long, long ago.
Marty Rubin
No one is more beautiful to me than a person who's easy to talk to.
Marty Rubin
Who do I love? I love people who are easy to talk to.
Marty Rubin
Talking to people is the most educational thing I know.
Meghan Daum
Analyzing data from 79 men and women who wore inconspicuous devices that recorded some of their conversations over the course of four days, researchers from Washington University and the University of Arizona found a correlation between feelings of well-being and the amount of time spent talking every day. Moreover, the more substantive your conversations, the happier you're likely to be. In other words, heart-to-hearts trump small talk. (LA Times, A lof of happy talk, March 11, 2010, A21.)
Michael Thomas Ford
I knew people were talking, but I wasn't listening. I wasn't interested in anything anyone had to say.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The boring thing with taking a walk with someone is that your thoughts are then dictated by the subject or subjects of your conversation; and that is made worse by the fact that most sane people are terrified of silence whenever they are with or near someone.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The more you know, the less you talk. The less you talk, the more you know.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
We call talking about other people's personal lives 'gossip' only if we aren't or weren't part of the conversation.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Not everyone who talks less or keeps quiet whenever they are with or around you does that because they find you interesting or knowledgeable; some people do that because they find you boring or ignorant.
Nancy E. Turner
I told Mama and Savannah about Ruben's proposal. That got us to talking about marriage and we laughed and cried some, and missed Papa, and it felt good to belong to each other. I don't feel as lonely today as I have in months. At least I know there are other women around me.
Neil Postman
Americans no longer talk to each other, they entertain each other. They do not exchange ideas, they exchange images. They do not argue with propositions; they argue with good looks, celebrities and commercials.
Philip Larkin
In life, as in art, talking vitiates doing.
Richard Ford
Humans generally get out the gist of what they need to say right at the beginning, then spend forever qualifying, contradicting, burnishing or taking important things back. Yor rareley miss anything by cutting most people off after two sentences.
Roy T. Bennett
The more you talk about them, the more important they will feel. The more you listen to them, the more important you will make them feel.
Roy T. Bennett
Do more listening than talking; talk more about them than about you.
Scott Stabile
The only way to free yourself from all the anxiety you're feeling about the difficult conversation you know you need to have is by having the difficult conversation. It's time. It's been time. You'll survive it. Just be brave and start talking.
Shannon L. Alder
The Anatomy of Conflict:If there is no communication then there is no respect. If there is no respect then there is no caring. If there is no caring then there is no understanding. If there is no understanding then there is no compassion. If there is no compassion then there is no empathy. If there is no empathy then there is no forgiveness. If there is no forgiveness then there is no kindness. If there is no kindness then there is no honesty. If there is no honesty then there is no love. If there is no love then God doesn't reside there. If God doesn't reside there then there is no peace. If there is no peace then there is no happiness. If there is no happiness ----then there IS CONFLICT BECAUSE THERE IS NO COMMUNICATION!
Shannon L. Alder
When you give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation you will have peace despite rejection or disapproval. Putting a voice to your soul helps you to let go of the negative energy of fear and regret.
Stephen Hawking
For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.
Suzy Kassem
We cannot control the way people interpret our ideas or thoughts, but we can control the words and tones we choose to convey them. Peace is built on understanding, and wars are built on misunderstandings. Never underestimate the power of a single word, and never recklessly throw around words. One wrong word, or misinterpreted word, can change the meaning of an entire sentence and start a war. And one right word, or one kind word, can grant you the heavens and open doors.
Vera Nazarian
Sometimes I think that wisdoms slip from my mind like drool from the lips of an idiot...Where's all this stuff coming from? Is it any good? Any good in, you know, the wisdom sense? Who am I to spout this stuff anyway?Well, here's the thing. You too can find yourself shedding wisdom like cat hair if you only allow yourself the liberty of introspection.Think about what you alone know that no one else does. That one neat wonderful profound insight. It is fully yours. No one else on this planet of about six billion people understands it like you do.Now, see if you can share it with someone. Bestow it, a gift of yourself.Wisdom is like gossip. Except it's the good kind.
Wally Lamb
I needed her to stop. Needed not to hear the pain in her voice--to see the way she was twisting the pocketbook strap. If she kept talking, she might break down and tell me everything.
