Walt put everything he knew about communication with images into the park, so it was very familiar.

I’m talking to you and it’s basically a direct communication, whereas if I’m writing a letter to you and you read the letter, there are like 12 extra deconstruction and reconstruction steps in the communication.

Mothers tend to be more direct. Fathers talk to other fathers about their kids more metaphorically. It’s a different way of communication.

I was in college for organizational communication and politics because I was just fascinated by influence. I wondered how people have influence, not because I wanted to inspire the world – yet.

The Internet has changed everything. We expect to know everything instantly. If you don’t understand digital communication, you’re at a disadvantage.

Bob Parsons
Product investment, quality management, and all the things that are key for a car company – great, there has been no compromise in those aspects. But I feel there’s a lot we could do on communication, particularly from a Chinese perspective.

Li Shufu
I agree that it is not just the extremists who harbor bad thoughts or engage in bad acts, but they are usually the source of the polarization and try to keep education and communication of the main stream from moving forward.

The nations of the West hope that by means of steam communication all the world will become as one family.

Townsend Harris
Being able to communicate with a loved one that you haven’t talked to in a while because of some communication break makes their life and your life in a much better place.

Music and politics are in essence about communication. Without over-stretching the analogy I do feel a sense of rhythm is important in getting your message across.

Communication is extremely important in any relationship – it makes the relationship that much healthier.

There are a lot of things that Slack gives you that email doesn’t when you think about internal use. Switching to Slack from email for internal communication gives you a lot more transparency.

When you consider how many people are really not good at communication in general and interviewing in specific, it’s no wonder that many companies struggle to build high-quality partnerships – or even staffs.

Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.

Private communication systems have been around since the beginning of human culture.

Making movies is not rocket science. It’s about relationships and communication and strangers coming together to see if they can get along harmoniously, productively, and creatively. That’s a challenge. When it works, it’s fantastic and will lift you up. When it doesn’t work, it’s almost just as fascinating.

The key to high-quality communication is trust, and it’s hard to trust somebody that you don’t know.

Dancing is the personification of music, and music is an abstract expression of the human spirit. But still it’s the act of communication, of making one feel. Otherwise it would just be gymnastics.

One of the most surprising forms of nonverbal communication is the way we automatically adjust the amount of time we spend looking into another’s eyes as a function of our relative social position.

Knowing who I am as a player and working on my deficiencies, communication is something I try to pride myself on.

A painting has a lot of advantages over other forms of communication. Unlike a movie, you don’t have to put it into a machine and turn it on. It’s just there every day. It’s not limited by the element of time. It’s a constant part of the home.

The Internet has made communication far more rapid. If there is a discovery, instantly around the world, anyone can confirm it.

Football helped me tremendously, and that’s why I want the sport to stay because it’s so valuable. It’s helped me be a better physician today, certainly. I’ve learned discipline. I’ve learned focus, teamwork, communication.

The church acknowledges some Scientologists choose to sever communications with family members who leave. The church says it is a fundamental human right to cease communication with someone. It adds disconnection is used against expelled members and those who attack the church.

John Sweeney
Communication – the human connection – is the key to personal and career success.

Paul J Meyer
Good writing excites me, and makes life worth living.

People just want to dig; they want to dance. They don’t want to work all through the night, and neither do I. I like getting ‘out there,’ but communication should be occurring on more levels than heavy-laden philosophical.

The whole musical institution of the church involves a lot of different styles of communication at the same time. Things like call and response. Sometimes they use the music to pray and work things out. And there’s so much repetition in gospel, it’s like churning butter.

I view music mostly as communication, so when I record, I’m communicating to the listener in the future.

Hildur Gudnadottir
A writer is someone who can make a riddle out of an answer.

Poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive, and widely effective mode of saying things.

Matthew Arnold
If the expansion of a global legal regime for communication technologies gains traction, the effects to the global economy as well as our individual liberties will be severe.

To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.

I have seen that technology has contributed to improved communication, that it’s contributed to better health care, that it’s contributed to better food supplies, that it has contributed to all the basic human needs.

John Warnock
You can now eat bananas from Chile; you couldn’t do it before you had air shipping. Now, communication technology enables the shipping of labor.

The pop-music video is one of the most powerful communication tools we have. Most people have access to a phone, and you can click a video and absorb it in three minutes. If it’s potent enough, you can take in the message or have some sort of experience in multiple dimensions, the music with the image.

Here’s the problem: People have completely and utterly forgotten one thing when it comes to communication – intent.

I think each film I do has less and less dialogue. It really helps a lot for foreign sales, because when I go to Europe, there’s very little problem with communication. All the gags are visual. The music they can understand, and it helps communicate a lot better.

What’s the greatest advice I give? Develop excellent communication skills.

Sometimes I worry that science communication is just preaching to the choir, speaking to the converted. Social media gives us an amazing opportunity to reach new people.

There is no law that guarantees press access to the White House. Communication was lessening during the Obama years. There was every reason to suspect that Trump was going to create an adversarial relationship and that people were going to be faced with the impossible dilemma between sort-of-complicity and access.

Loving your language means a command of its vocabulary beyond the level of the everyday.

I am working on my English skills that will help me on the pitch. Communication between each other makes our job much easier.

Working with coach Sweeney has really been beneficial to my career. I’ve never watched so much film in my life, the constant communication between he and I. He’ll send me clips every day, just different things to look at, ask what I think about it and we’ll communicate and have different dialogues about it.

We write in ways that, we generally hope, reflect real life, or at least look familiar to humans. And in life, recurring themes are a recurring theme. We never quite conquer a pet vice or a relationship pattern or a communication habit. We’re haunted by our particular demons.

But if I can be convinced and then through the work that we do together, the orchestra can really be convinced of the big sweep of that communication that the piece suggests, then the audience will get it and it will be a good experience for all of us.

Without question, we need to be informed of the happenings in the world. But modern communication brings into our homes a drowning cascade of the violence and misery of the worldwide human race. There comes a time when we need to find some peaceful spiritual renewal.

If we do away with semi-colons, parentheses and much else, we will lose all music, nuance and subtlety in communication – and end up shouting at one another in block capitals.

To communicate through silence is a link between the thoughts of man.

Marcel Marceau
My daughter emails me. When your daughter starts to email you instead of talk to you… It’s horrible. You cannot forget human communication.

People don’t use Evite or Facebook events for their weddings. But they do use Paperless Post. It’s the sign of a paradigm because it is the most momentous occasion in most people’s lives. It represents the most formal type of offline communication.

I thought my life was mapped out. Research, living in the forest, teaching and writing. But in ’86 I went to a conference and realised the chimpanzees were disappearing. I had worldwide recognition and a gift of communication. I had to use them.

I’ve taken a philosophical position on e-mail. Although I think it’s a wonderful communication technology, and it has a lot of good uses, it is abused quite a lot.

Genius is the ability to put into effect what is on your mind.

Throughout the European Middle Ages and Renaissance, Latin was the language of learning and international communication. But in the early modern period, it was gradually displaced by French. By the eighteenth century, all the world – or at least all of Europe – aspired to be Parisian.

I’ve always engaged in open, honest communication. There’s no topic that can’t be discussed.

Communication is everyone’s panacea for everything.

I shall suggest, on the contrary, that all communication relies, to a noticeable extent on evoking knowledge that we cannot tell, and that all our knowledge of mental processes, like feelings or conscious intellectual activities, is based on a knowledge which we cannot tell.

Michael Polanyi
I’ve heard stories of people, even celebrities that have gone online, pretended to be someone they weren’t, and conducted a 5-year friendship via e-mail. Then, they got married because they really love each other from all that communication.

I think there’s a fear of disconnect sometimes; communication is a huge issue for all of us, from adults to kids, as far as our face-to-face time and our ability to interact with each other without isolating itself to a phone. I think that has to be something that’s very challenging.

There are two barriers that often prevent communication between the young and their elders. The first is middle-aged forgetfulness of the fact that they themselves are no longer young. The second is youthful ignorance of the fact that the middle aged are still alive.

All my life, I’ve been working with male directors, which I’ve really enjoyed. And I’m lucky in that I’ve worked with men who have a lot of respect for women. But working with a woman is a different experience. It feels like the communication is different.

Communication is crucial. That’s why young teams aren’t usually good because their communication’s not good because they’re not confident in the communication.

To pray is to have a conversation with Deity. This sacred and supernal communication with Heavenly Father is a divine and delicate process. This crucial communication should be conducted with great care and in compliance with sacred counsel.

By supporting all the links in the building chain and giving them an easy, intuitive tool for sharing model-based project information, GTeam enhances workflows and improves communication from design through to fabrication and assembly.

Greg Lynn
Communication is something that I find if don’t do, I will go missing, I won’t be fully focused. If I’m constantly giving messages to the defenders not only do they know where they are but I am switched on and in the right position. It all links together.

Communication is important.

In today’s world, everyone’s so clued into their iPhones, and communication is going by the wayside as far as one-on-one is concerned. It’s very seldom that I walk into a room and parents make their children say hello and have a social grace with one another.

It’s populated by people who, by and large, have terrific communication skills. Every day is an extraordinary day. For me, it was just a great area for storytelling.

I work on OpenBSD fulltime, as the project leader. I set some directions, increase communication between the developers, and try to be involved in nearly every aspect of the base system.

Theo de Raadt
My theory on an existing crisis is that you have to be very strategic about each case’s unique elements. If a crisis involves a legal component, you need a communication strategy that complements the company’s legal objective. A strategy for a plea deal is different than a case going to trial.

Dad often told me, ‘My job is to help my boss do his job and make him look good.’ That was my dad‘s objective. Everything about the way he conducted himself was to communicate support for his superiors and respect for his coworkers. The way he dressed was his starting point in that communication.

Participatory democracies. Open economies. Web-based communication. All American innovations to the great conundrums of the globe.

In the numerous observations made in my laboratory upon this object, we have only once seen a combination of vessels in which there might be a direct communication between a small artery and a vein, though the two observers could not come to a final conclusion on the point.

August Krogh
One’s eyes are what one is, one’s mouth is what one becomes.

John Galsworthy
In this great age of communication, there a lot of people you can’t actually understand. I know everyone tweets, and twits and texts and all that, but actually we’ve all got voices, and it is awfully nice to hear them and if you can understand what people are saying.

Penelope Keith
Art is essentially communication. It doesn’t exist in a vacuum. That’s why people make art, so other people can relate to it.

I like television. I still believe that television is the most powerful form of communication on Earth – I just hate what is being done with it.

I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.

Evelyn Beatrice Hall
I don’t think there has been enough communication between the players and the tournaments. In one sense it’s just as much the players’ fault. Players talk between each other and in the locker room about things that can be improved and then when the time comes to talk and really do something about it they stop.

Humans are a social species more than any other, and in order to build a community, which for some reason humans have to do in order to live, we have to solve the communication problem. Language is the tool that was invented to solve that problem.

Daniel Everett
Reclassification is the best way to for us to preserve the Internet as an unfettered tool for communication and the sharing of ideas.

Yet, in spite of this world-wide system of linkages, there is, at this very moment, a general feeling that communication is breaking down everywhere, on an unparalleled scale.

I am still cautiously hopeful about the potential of the Internet. But it seems that the greatest revolution in communication has been hijacked by commercial values.

The way forward in the Middle East, as it has been around the world and throughout history, is communication. There must be direct talks between the Israelis and Palestinians, mediated by the United States.

Language commonly stresses only one side of any interaction.

Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.

It’s so important in marriage to let the little things go and let the pride go. Forgiveness is so important, and communication. Don’t major on the minors.

Every player in every team speaks to each other in order to improve the quality on the pitch – that communication is necessary.

Writing only leads to more writing.

Being a good Hans Haacke student, part of his influence on me is that there’s no difference between a gallery show and a film – or even an ad and a T-shirt-in terms of cultural legitimacy. They’re just different contexts in which to have some sort of communication.

Microsoft is committed to the ubiquity of the Skype experience – communication across every device and every platform will remain a primary focus.

Tony Bates
Communication isn’t just directing a guy on what to do: it’s passing the information along to the guy that’s next to you, and that’s where we make the calls come to life.

My two daughters live on Facebook, and social media is their mode of communication.

The Internet has given us 10 or 15 new styles of communication: long messages like blogging, and then short messages like texting and tweeting. I see it all as part of an expanding array of linguistic possibilities.

There is no pleasure to me without communication: there is not so much as a sprightly thought comes into my mind that it does not grieve me to have produced alone, and that I have no one to tell it to.

When I’m putting some communication out on Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, I think that it’s helping me, my brain, you know, because it’s always somehow stimulated by people who are sending things to me. And it works both ways. It’s great. My brain is very happy about it.

When I deal with my son, my wife and I definitely take the time to make sure that he feels comfortable in every situation. The communication needs to be there. I think my wife has done a great job at really getting good at being able to communicate with our children.

If we ever established contact with intelligent life on another world, there would be barriers to communication. First, they would be many light years away, so signals would take many years to reach them: there would be no scope for quick repartee. There might be an IQ gap.

I always find that there is a real communication between voice and violin.

Genuine good taste consists in saying much in few words, in choosing among our thoughts, in having order and arrangement in what we say, and in speaking with composure.

Francois Fenelon

Henry Cuellar
The use of encrypted communication and data storage to shield terrorist coordination from intelligence and law-enforcement authorities is known as ‘going dark.’

It’s all about communication, culture and competing every day.

The break down for kids is communication. Music helps bring that bond.

If technique is of no interest to a writer, I doubt that the writer is an artist.

Marianne Moore
Science may never come up with a better office communication system than the coffee break.

Earl Wilson
On the other hand, in a society whose communication component is becoming more prominent day by day, both as a reality and as an issue, it is clear that language assumes a new importance.

Jean-Francois Lyotard
My stay-married secret would probably be exercising good communication, not when you have to but all the time. I think if you do that, you kinda just cleanse the situations, so there’s not build up. I think that’s probably the best way to do it.

I’m a huge fan of online communities. I think that asynchronous internet-based communication forums such as Reddit and other discussion forums are one of the best things that could possibly have happened to collaborative invention. The Rift certainly would not exist without forums.

Communication is the key, and it’s one thing I had to learn-to talk to the actors. I was so involved with the visual and technical aspects that I would forget about the actors.

My grandmother died in 1991 and I was born in ’86. We only met once, but I didn’t speak English and she didn’t speak Spanish – so we had a communication problem.

Oona Chaplin
In a way song writing can almost be detrimental, because suddenly you find an outlet that is a kind of cheating. You don’t need to have direct communication. You can say, ‘I can’t describe it to you, but I will record it and send it to you.’

There is nothing more fearful for the average person in our society than to stand before a group of people and speak.

A big part of that quarterback-receiver relationship is communication. You’ve got to be on the same page because if you’re not, it just doesn’t work. Then you’re kind of guessing.

It is not enough to show people how to live better: there is a mandate for any group with enormous powers of communication to show people how to be better.

Marya Mannes
Words are also seeds, and when dropped into the invisible spiritual substance, they grow and bring forth after their kind.

Charles Fillmore
CBS’s Major Garrett writes in ‘National Journal’ about a new version of the ‘stray voltage’ theory of communication in which the president purposefully overstates his case knowing that it will create controversy.

We emphasize that such a form of communication is not absent in man, however evanescent a naturally given object may be for him, split as it is in its submission to symbols.

Jacques Lacan
Be not a slave of words.

I really feel that design has the capacity to communicate, and I really have concentrated on the communication of positive values.

Writing is a communication.

With ‘The Keep,’ I began with a theory about pitting the isolated disconnection of the gothic realm against present-day hyperconnectedness. I emerged feeling that the gothic genre is all about hyperconnectedness – the possibility of disembodied communication – and that we now live in a kind of permanently gothic state.

I understood that synergistic dance between photographer and object – ‘muse,’ if you will, ‘model,’ whatever you call us. It’s that silent language of communication, like being psychic with each other.

Design is a powerful factor in communication between disciplines and stakeholders and can transform knowledge into creative, human-oriented solutions that can promote companies’ and countriescompetitive ability and foster innovation and growth.

I don’t start with a design objective, I start with a communication objective. I feel my project is successful if it communicates what it is supposed to communicate.

Mike Davidson
I think humans are just hard-wired to process people’s faces and understand meaning and expression at such a more granular level than other types of communication.

The need to write comes from the need to make sense of one’s life and discover one’s usefulness.

John Cheever
Falling in love is a chemical reaction. But it wears off in a year. That’s why you need a strong line of communication… which includes laughter.

Their spirituality was in nature, even though Emerson was a preacher on the pulpit, he ended up going out into nature for direct, face-to-face communication with God, if you want to call all of this creation part of God.

The speed of communication, the speed of information transfer, the cheapness of communication, the ease of moving things around the world are a difference in kind as well as degree.

Paul A Volcker
Trust is the most important part of a relationship, closely followed by communication. I think that if you have those two things, everything else falls into place – your affection, your emotional connection.

I enjoy very much communication. I think that scientists need to communicate.

If you don’t know each other you spend time doing research together, having dinner, and talking about your lives. You try to find common ground. Once you’re shooting, the pressures are so intense; you really want to have a channel of communication open to you already.

Our most valuable resources – creativity, communication, invention, and reinvention – are, in fact, unlimited.

Truthful words are not beautiful; beautiful words are not truthful. Good words are not persuasive; persuasive words are not good.

Part of playmaking is communication, when you have nobody on the field talking, particularly when you are under pressure, it becomes twice as hard.

More than any other candidate, Mr. Trump embodies the evolving norms of communication that are being enabled and encouraged by technology and the matrix of connectivity that defines modern life: authenticity over authority, surprise over consistency, celebrity over experience.

Writing is learning to say nothing, more cleverly each day.

William Allingham
Illiteracy is rampant. People are out of communication.

Karen Black
It is by universal misunderstanding that all agree. For if, by ill luck, people understood each other, they would never agree.

There is no roles. No one is keeping any roles. The drummer is also answering everybody and everything. So it is a constant conversation and communication between musicians on an extremely high level with extremely valuable material, motifs, and melodies.

Seeing other people is incredibly engaging, and that’s one of the drivers that made us partner with Facebook – social communication. Not social newsfeeds, but actual face-to-face, seeing multiple avatars in a play experience, that’s going to be a very big part of the future in VR.

Language exerts hidden power, like the moon on the tides.

It frequently happens that two persons, reasoning right on a mechanical subject, think alike and invent the same thing without any communication with each other.

Oliver Evans
The truth is hip hop has always complemented jazz and vice versa, but there’s always been this communication barrier that exists based on music to lyrics.

Music is about communication, and the chemistry between an audience and the orchestra is absolutely essential; the performance does not exist in a bubble.

It is difficult to imagine how any behavior in the presence of another person can avoid being a communication of one’s own view of the nature of one’s relationship with that person and how it can fail to influence that person.

Paul Watzlawick
I’ve gotten better at calling out coverages, communication, and being vertical when they’re attacking me in the paint.

My hectic work schedule does not often permit me time to visit temples, but my conversations with God don’t depend on idol worship. Inside my heart, I have developed and sustained a direct communication with Him.

I honestly always really try to get people to share their feelings. I always say to everyone that communication is key.

Trust is the glue of life. It’s the most essential ingredient in effective communication. It’s the foundational principle that holds all relationships.

The art of communication is the language of leadership.

James Humes
Measured in time of transport and communication, the whole round globe is now smaller than a small European country was a hundred years ago.

We think that providing this kind of secure private means of communication for the masses for 99.999 percent of people that have nothing to do with terrorism means more than the threat that we see from the other side.

I do have a big problem with the idea of music as a form of communication unless it’s political – and that’s where it’s tricky because a lot of music is political, even if it’s not overtly so. But my music isn’t that; it’s about a feeling.

This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.

The late 20th century had just enough communication abilities to allow superstar-ness and communality to happen. It was a musical renaissance that rivals the visual one that happened in the 1400s.

Obviously, you have the DNC engaged in communication with lots of different parties, and anything you can use to gain intelligence about what’s going on in the U.S. political system and what the candidates are thinking is of high interest to Russian intelligence.

I think it’s very important to have a feedback loop, where you’re constantly thinking about what you’ve done and how you could be doing it better. I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.

Before language, cavemen simply grunted, and then they used the club. Communication changed that. It’s the mechanism that created civilization and prevents its own destruction.

I don’t understand why people whose entire lives or their corporate success depends on communication, and yet they are led on occasion by CEOs who cannot talk their way out of a paper bag and don’t care to.

Strong alliances can thrive even where disagreements exist, but they cannot thrive where free and open communication is shut down.

Words are but the signs of ideas.

The world is a complex place, and the influence of the media in its representation and its power of communication and interpretation is a remarkable amplifier of emotions, and of illusions.

As I’ve gotten to know myself over the years, I realised I’m kind of a sweet, sensitive guy, a shy guy, and communication is not something I’m so good at.

Growing up in a Singaporean Chinese family, for me food is almost the primary means of communication between family members, both immediate and extendedhey, it beats discussing which cousin did better at end of semester exams, or who’s getting married next, right?

I think for any relationship to be successful, there needs to be loving communication, appreciation, and understanding.

A different language is a different vision of life.

A world community can exist only with world communication, which means something more than extensive short-wave facilities scattered; about the globe. It means common understanding, a common tradition, common ideas, and common ideals.

Robert M Hutchins
What I think works for Fox News is we have a very direct form of communication.

You don’t have any communication between the Israelis and the Iranians. You have all sorts of local triggers for conflict. Having countries act on a hair trigger – where they can’t afford to be second to strike – the potential for a miscalculation or a nuclear war through inadvertence is simply too high.

Dennis Ross
Music is the major form of communication. It’s the commonest vibration, the people’s news broadcast, especially for kids.

One of the things that amazes me about Twitter is the way it utterly eradicates artificial barriers to communication. Things like status, geopolitics and so on keep people from talking to one another. Those go away in Twitter. You see exchanges that would never happen anywhere else.

I think communication should be fun and that we should all worry less about how we say things and more about what we say.

Who would know but ten years ago that kids would be texting each other all the time, that that would be one of their main forms of communication.

Music is about communication… it isn’t just something that maybe physically sounds good or orally sounds interesting; it’s something far, far deeper than that.

The great work must inevitably be obscure, except to the very few, to those who like the author himself are initiated into the mysteries. Communication then is secondary: it is perpetuation which is important. For this only one good reader is necessary.

We’ve been trying to open the gates of communication between Havana and Miami through art, which is apolitical most of the time: It doesn’t have anything to do with politics and is only an exchange of ideas.

A monopoly on the means of communication may define a ruling elite more precisely than the celebrated Marxian formula of monopoly in the means of production.

Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself.

With clearly defined roles and a focus on communication, it’s much easier to make your company come across as well-organized and on top of things – because it actually is.

Trust brings a higher level of communication and a higher level of commitment and accountability.

The U.S. has always been a global innovation vanguarddriving advancements in computing, communication, and media to rail, automobiles, and aeronautics.

I think any great culture is born out of transparent, authentic communication. You almost can’t overcommunicate. You can try, and you might think, ‘Oh, do I really have to say this again?’ And the answer is yes.

I follow my conscience – and this is upsetting to some people, but I maintain the conscience is going to be the only thing between us and communication in the future.

The desire to write grows with writing.

The more technologically advanced our society becomes, the more we need to go back to the basic fundamentals of human communication.

Language is an inadequate form of communication. If you’ve picked up an instrument, it’s because you don’t feel you are communicating sufficiently.

The more we elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.

The strong man is the one who is able to intercept at will the communication between the senses and the mind.

If you have an important point to make, don’t try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time – a tremendous whack.

The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.

Hans Hofmann
To say nothing, especially when speaking, is half the art of diplomacy.

Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.

If we ever start communicating with living creatures from other planets, the number one priority is, how are you going to communicate information? Even between different cultures here on Earth, you get into communication problems.

Communication is so key.

Eventually, it is found out but it takes time especially in the conditions when communication is difficult, when the enemy is making it extremely awkward for information to come out, to go.

Writing has nothing to do with communication between person and person, only with communication between different parts of a person’s mind.

Instantaneous and mass communication is the mother of mass naivety. Should we then lose hope? Is there any hope? But to lose hope is as dangerous as to nurture false hope. Where then can we find hope that is responsible?

I slept for four years. I didn’t study much of anything. I majored in something called communication arts.

I would say the greatest challenge we had with the Wii U was being crystal clear in our communication of what the product was and what the product could do.

No pleasure has any savor for me without communication.

My personal view about how people should use Twitter is less relevant than our goal to provide the infrastructure for a new kind of communication and then support the creativity that emerges.

The Internet is the most democratic communication platform in history, largely because we’ve had network neutrality rules that make sure all web traffic is treated equally, and no voices are discriminated against.

I think I am a good help defender as well as just bringing a lot of communication to the floor.

My mother-in-law Vickie is an amazing person and has been nothing but helpful and supportive. She helps with the little things, dealing with being on the road and being away from home and how to keep up communication and little things like where the best hotels are, how to find a gym, little things on the road.

I never told a victim story about my imprisonment. Instead, I told a transformation story – about how prison changed my outlook, about how I saw that communication, truth, and trust are at the heart of power.

Fernando Flores
A relationship is based on communication.

The dynamic drives of modern economic growth, in the countries that entered the process ahead of others, meant a reaching out geographically; and the sequential spread of the process, facilitated by major changes in transport and communication, meant a continuous expansion to the less developed areas.

Simon Kuznets
The filmmaking process is a very personal one to me, I mean it really is a personal kind of communication. It’s not as though its a study of fear or any of that stuff.

I do love email. Wherever possible I try to communicate asynchronously. I’m really good at email.

You hope to bring your ‘A Game’ to any game, and of course you do in a final. You hope to bring experience, fitness, communication skills, motivational skills.

The biggest sources of opportunity are collaboration and partnership. And today, with digital communication, there is more of that everywhere. We need to expose ourselves to that as a matter of doing business.

With ‘The Sixth Sense,’ my dad and I discussed how this was not so much a horror story as a story about communication. I understudied with my dad, in a sense. It made a huge difference.

Honest communication is a rare thing.
