COMMUNICATION & UNDERSTANDING


‘Before speaking, consider the interpretation of your words as well as their intent.'

ANDREW ALDEN


‘State your case, share your point of view but, in the final analysis, accept others’ right to choose what’s right for them’

BYRON


‘Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.’

CARL JUNG


‘Think more, listen more, be cautious in your words and in your actions – the advantage of doing things in this way is that you will have fewer regrets’.

CONFUCIUS


‘Compassion provides the basis of human survival, the real value of human life - and without that there is a basic piece missing.'

DALAI LAMA


‘The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.’
DOROTHY NEVILL


‘It is never good dwelling on goodbyes. It is not the being together that it prolongs, it is the parting.'

ELIZABETH ASQUITH BIBESCO

JANE WHEATLEY


'You can't negotiate with people who say what's mine is mine and what's yours is negotiable'.
JOHN F KENNEDY


 ‘Understanding human dynamics is still the most important thing in business.'

MARK MCCORMACK

MONICA MCINERNEY


‘Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.'  

MOTHER TERESA


‘Carve every word before you let it fall.’

OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES

PAUL BOESE

SIGMUND FREUD
