negotiation

A Quote by Caroline Myss on life, power, experience, and negotiation

As I have often written, power is the fundamental ingredient of the human experience. Every action in life, every thought, every choice we make--even down to what we wear and whether we are seating in first class or coach--represents a negotiation of power somewhere on the scale of power that constitutes life.

A Quote by Gavin De Becker on no, negotiation, justifications, controlling, and abuse

"No" is a word that must never be negotiated, because the person who chooses not to hear it is trying to control you…  Declining to hear "no" is a signal that someone is either seeking control or refusing to relinquish it.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on language, french, english, queens, bargains, negotiation, questions, interrogation, nonsense, and logic

'Do you know Languages?  What's the French for fiddle-de-dee?'
'Fiddle-de-dee's not English,' Alice replied gravely.
'Who ever said it was?' said the Red Queen.
Alice thought she saw a way out of the difficulty this time.  'If you'll tell me what language "fiddle-de-dee" is, I'll tell you the French for it!' she exclaimed triumphantly.
But the Red Queen drew herself up rather stiffly, and said 'Queens never make bargains.'
'I wish Queens never asked questions,' Alice thought to herself.

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)

A Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi on hope, work, endeavour, faith, and negotiation

I think by now I have made it fairly clear that I am not very happy with the word "hope." I don't believe in people just hoping. We work for what we want. I always say that one has no right to hope without  endeavor, so we work to try and bring about the situation that is necessary for the country, and we are confident that we will get to the negotiation table at one time or another. This is the way all such situations pan out-- even with the most truculent dictator.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on accidents, beauty, charm, faith, farewells, heroism, negotiation, proof, and trust

Let every eye negotiate for itself And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch Against whose charms faith melteth into blood. This is an accident of hourly proof, Which I mistrusted not. Farewell, therefore, Hero!

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by Sogyal Rinpoche on bliss, change, clarity, difficulty, egotism, emotion, experience, guidance, humor, illusions, joy, laughter, life, listening, negotiation, people, silence, spirituality, and wisdom

Two people have been living in you all your life. One is the ego, garrulous, demanding, hysterical, calculating; the other is the hidden spiritual being, whose still voice of wisdom you have only rarely heard or attended to. . . . you have uncovered in yourself your own wise guide. Because he or she knows you through and through, since he or she is you, your guide can help you, with increasing clarity and humor, negotiate all the difficulties of your thoughts and emotions. . . . The more often you listen to this wise guide, the more easily you will be able to change your negative moods yourself, see through them, and even laugh at them for the absurd dramas and ridiculous illusions that they are. . . . The more you listen, the more guidance you will receive. If you follow the voice of your wise guide . . . and let the ego fall silent, you come to experience that presence of wisdom and joy and bliss that you really are.

A Quote by Roger L. Welsch on agreement, behavior, culture, negotiation, perception, respect, restaurants, rules, sex, television, trust, violence, and women

In some cultures, the sight of a woman's nose and mouth are considered irresistibly seductive. In others, the soles of a person's feet are perceived as disgusting beyond comprehension. In mainstream American culture, sex is obscene but violence is television fare for preschoolers. What is acceptable in swimwear is unacceptable in a restaurant. In an elevator we condone contact that would otherwise be actionable incriminal court. Rules of behavior are not absolute; we negotiate them constantly. . . . Immodesty, indecency, obscenity are cultural factors, mutually agreed upon and negotiable. We are enjoined to "cover our nakedness," but there's considerable disagreement about what our nakedness is. Our noses and mouths? The bottoms of our feet? A lack of trust or mutual respect?

A Quote by Paul Somerson on company, lawyers, and negotiation

Ever negotiate with lawyers at a huge company? If they saw you drowning 100 feet from the shore, they'd through you a 51-foot rope and say they went more than halfway.
