  • Quotes:
  • “Communication is what makes us human, enabling us to connect on the deepest level with those around us – telling our own stories, expressing wants, needs and desires or hearing those of others by really listening. All this is how the world knows who we are? So who are we without it?”
  • “Most of us never think twice about talking, communicating.” – Martin Pistorius
  • “I discovered that true communication is about more than merely physically conveying a message. It is about getting the message heard and respected.”

  • “Our words, however we communicate them, are just as powerful whether we speak the words with our own voices, type them with our eyes, or communicate them non-verbally to someone who speaks them for us, word are amongst our most powerful tools.”
  • “True communication increases understanding and creates a more caring and compassionate world.”
  • “We are told that actions speak louder than words. But I wonder, do they?”
  • “I used the power of words and will to challenge the preconceptions of those around me and those I had of myself.”
