conversation

A Quote by Viktor E. Frankl on conversation, death, heart, justice, knowledge, love, strength, and wives

. . . nothing could touch the strength of my love, and the thoughts of my beloved. Had I known then that my wife was dead, I think that I still would have given myself, undisturbed by that knowledge, to the contemplation of that image, and that my mental conversation with her would have been just as vivid and just as satisfying. "Set me like a seal upon thy heart, love is as strong as death."

Viktor Frankl (1905 - 1997)

A Quote by Tyler Powell on belief, books, choice, contentment, conversation, culture, decisions, good, justice, life, people, reflection, society, and understanding

I can't believe I'm having this conversation . . . With you! You've probably never read a book in your life that wasn't written by John Grisham. You don't get it. People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isn't about analysing stories - if it was, I wouldn't be like this. Stories, novels, whatever . . . reflect something about the writer . . . and the culture . . . and the society that it came from. It's a mirror - a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right, when we just get it, we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly, we know the right decision to make. And if you don't know who you are and make the wrong choices, what good is it if you can make two-hundred and fifty thousand?

A Quote by Tom Blair on art, conversation, silence, speech, and women

Silence is one of the great arts of conversation, as allowed by Cicero himself, who says, 'there is not only an art, but an eloquence in it.' A well bred woman may easily and effectually promote the most useful and elegant conversation without speaking a word. The modes of speech are scarcely more variable than the modes of silence.

A Quote by Tom Clothier on beauty, charm, confidence, conversation, friendship, garden, meetings, needs, people, plants, pleasure, reward, and success

To garden, you open your personal space to admit a few, a great many, or thousands of plants which exude charm, pleasure, beauty, oxygen, conversation, friendship, confidence, and other rewards should you succeed in meeting their basic needs. This is why people garden. It can be easy but challenging, and the rewards are priceless.
