conversation

A Quote by Meredith Young-Sowers on love, god, compassion, spirituality, meaning, and conversation

Ask yourself: at which level can I give love?

1. Love the oneness in those people with whom you can truly be yourself, can find comfort in their thoughts, can feel supported in your own discoveries, and can feel loved unconditionally.

2. Love the shared friendship in those who are eager to be with you and learn from you.

3. Love from a distance those people who enjoy conversation only at the social level, and discourage what you would consider more meaningful conversation.

4. Love the God fiber in those people who make it difficult or impossible for you to be with them, care about them, or honor their path.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on book, conversation, and company

A book is good company. It is full of conversation without loquacity. It comes to your longing with full instruction, but pursues you never.

A Quote by Kaya McLaren on art, conversation, language, auras, creativity, code, secrets, kaya mclaren, and church of the dog

This is why I love art. Art is the medium. those of us who see the unexplainable converse in.  It's safe. And those who don't see the neon dots floating around people, the sparkles falling from the sky, and the auras, of course, can just write it off as imagination and creativity. In that respect, it's a coded conversation.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on kittens, conversation, purring, yes, no, boolean, logic, and agreeableness

It is a very inconvenient habit of kittens (Alice had once made the remark) that, whatever you say to them, they Always purr.  'If them would only purr for "yes" and mew for "no," or any rule of that sort,' she had said, 'so that one could keep up a conversation!  But how can you talk with a person if they always say the same thing?'

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on speaking, politeness, rules, children, seen not heard, speak when spoken to, logic, argument, and conversation

'Speak when you're spoken to!' The Queen sharply interrupted her.
'But if everybody obeyed that rule,' said Alice, who was always ready for a little argument, 'and if you only spoke when you were spoken to, and the other person always waited for you to begin, you see nobody would ever say anything, so that -- '
'Ridiculous!' cried the Queen.  'Why, don't you see, child -- ' here she broke off with a frown, and, after thinking for a minute, suddenly changed the subject of the conversation.

A Quote by Theodore Zeldin on conversation, meeting, minds, memories, habits, meet, exchange, facts, transform, reshape, implications, engage, thought, and cards

Conversation is a meeting of minds with different memories and habits. When minds meet, they don't just exchange facts: they transform them, reshape them, draw different implications from them, engage in new trains of thought. Conversation doesn't just reshuffle the cards: it creates new cards.
