[Quote No.56603] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"The great charm of conversation consists less in the display of one's own wit and intelligence, than in the power to draw forth the resources of others [for example with open questions and sincere interest]; he who leaves you after a long conversation, pleased with himself and the part he has taken in the discourse, will be your warmest admirer. Men do not care to admire you, they wish you to be pleased with them; they do not seek for instruction or even amusement from your discourse, but they do wish you to be made acquainted with their talents and powers of conversation; and the true man of genius will delicately make all who come in contact with him feel the exquisite satisfaction of knowing that they have appeared to advantage." - Jean de La Bruyere
(1645 - 1696), French philosopher and moralist.

[Quote No.56631] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] As a matter of general principle, I believe there can be no doubt that criticism in time of war is essential to the maintenance of any kind of democratic government ... too many people desire to suppress criticism simply because they think that it will give some comfort to the enemy to know that there is such criticism. If that comfort makes the enemy feel better for a few moments, they are welcome to it as far as I am concerned, because the maintenance of the right of criticism in the long run will do the country maintaining it a great deal more good than it will do the enemy, and will prevent mistakes which might otherwise occur." - Robert A. Taft
Conservative American politician, statesman, and presidential hopeful who served as a United States Senator from Ohio from 1939 until his death in 1953. Quote from his address to Executive Club of Chicago, December 19, 1941.

[Quote No.56632] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free, Which he who can, and will, deserves high praise; Who neither can, nor will, may hold his peace: What can be juster in a state than this? ...If we think to regulate printing, thereby to rectify manners, we must regulate all recreation and pastimes, all that is delightful to man. No music must be heard, no song be set or sung, but what is grave and Doric. There must be licensing dancers, that no gesture, motion, or deportment be taught our youth but what by their allowance shall be thought honest; for such Plato was provided of. It will ask more than the work of twenty licensers to examine all the lutes, the violins, and the guitars in every house; they must not be suffered to prattle as they do, but must be licensed what they may say. And who shall silence all the airs and madrigals that whisper softness in chambers?... Many there be that complain of divine Providence for suffering Adam to transgress; foolish tongues! When God gave him reason, he gave him freedom to choose, for reason is but choosing; he had been else a mere artificial Adam, such an Adam as he is in the motions. We ourselves esteem not of that obedience, or love, or gift, which is of force: God therefore left him free, set before him a provoking object, ever almost in his eyes; herein consisted his merit, herein the right of his reward, the praise of his abstinence. Wherefore did he create passions within us, pleasures round about us, but that these rightly tempered are the very ingredients of virtue? They are not skilful considerers of human things, who imagine to remove sin by removing the matter of sin..." - John Milton
(1608-1678) English poet. Quoted from his pamphlet, 'Areopagitica: A Speech For The Liberty Of Unlicensed Printing To The Parliament Of England', (1644).

[Quote No.56635] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:-] The time, it is to be hoped, is gone by, when any defence would be necessary of the 'liberty of the press' as one of the securities against corrupt or tyrannical government. No argument, we may suppose, can now be needed, against permitting a legislature or an executive, not identified in interest with the people, to prescribe opinions to them, and determine what doctrines or what arguments they shall be allowed to hear." - John Stuart Mill
(1806–1873). Quote from his book, 'On Liberty', published 1869 [Chapter II: Of the Liberty of Thought and Discussion].

So don't be frightened of other's opinion of you, they are more frightened of your opinion of them than.]" - David Foster Wallace

"Help me to understand. Good hosts begin their conversation with these four words in an effort to learn more about the other. In the midst of difficulty, they turn to wonder rather than judgment. Whenever there are different perspectives in a conversation, a good host seeks to understand better how others see things, their feelings, and why their position is important to them." - Diane M. Millis

[Quote No.56768] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:-] To a genuine liberal [that is a 'classical liberal', which today is best represented by libertarianism], tolerance means more than endorsing a wide range of beliefs and practices. It means allowing nonviolent people to say and do things that we strongly disagree with, disapprove of, or find highly offensive. It means not assuming our own moral superiority over the wickedness or stupidity of our ideological opponents. English writer Beatrice Evelyn Hall captured that liberal spirit when she (and not Voltaire) wrote, 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.' " - Sandy Ikeda

"Make Every Day Thanksgiving: When you notice and appreciate good things about other people, it improves your mood and the moods of the people around you, whether you're at home or at work. You get to live in a more pleasant environment. You know that already. But it's hard to remember, isn't it? So try this trick: At the beginning of your day, or even right now, put five pennies in your left pocket. Now try to find something nice to say about someone (something you actually think is true), either to their face or behind their back, and every time you do, move one penny to your right pocket. Try to move all five today. You may be surprised at the extended consequences of this simple action." - Adam Khan

[Quote No.56968] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Be kind to others. Why? Because most people are nearly always dealing with and focusing on something that is difficult and challenging. We are psychologically and physiologically wired to have a negativity bias to find and fix problems, in order of priority for survival and happiness. How can we test if this hypothesis is true?] The next suitable person you're in light conversation with, you [could] stop suddenly in the middle of the conversation and look at the person closely and say, 'What's wrong?' You say it in a concerned way. He'll say, 'What do you mean?' You say, 'Something's wrong. I can tell. What is it?' And he'll look stunned and say, 'How did you know?' He doesn't realize something's always wrong, with everybody. Often more than one thing. He doesn't know everybody's always going around all the time with something wrong and believing they're exerting great willpower and control to keep other people, for whom they think nothing’s ever wrong, from seeing it.' [It takes understanding that happiness is relative and about what you compare your experience to - better and you feel bad and bitter, worse and you feel good and grateful - to approach 'enlightened', perennial joie de vivre. This revelation is not expressed enough, especially in consumer-based societies where discontent is manufactured and then used to market the next purchase.]" - David Foster Wallace

[Quote No.57102] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:-] Tolerance is, however, not only the centrepiece but the paradox of liberalism. For liberalism enjoins tolerance of opposing viewpoints, and allows them to have their say, leaving it to the democracy of ideas to decide which shall prevail. The result is too often the death of toleration itself, because those who live by hard principles and uncompromising views in political, moral and religious respects always, if given half a chance, silence liberals because liberalism, by its nature, threatens the hegemony [lack of diversity from free choice] they wish to impose. To the question, 'Should the tolerant tolerate the intolerant?' the answer should therefore be a resounding 'No.' Tolerance has to protect itself. It can easily do so by saying that anyone can put a point of view, but no one can force another to accept it. The only coercion should be that of argument, the only obligation should be to honest reasoning [- so no force or fraud]. Helen Keller said that 'the highest result of education is tolerance', and she was right; one can be confident that in most cases the unbiased reasonings of an informed mind will come out in favour of what is good and an informed mind will come out in favour of what is good and true. …One can tolerate a belief or a practice without accepting it oneself. What underlies tolerance is the recognition that there is plenty of room in the world for alternatives to coexist, and that if one is offended by what others do, it is because one has let it get under one's skin. We tolerate others best when we know how to tolerate ourselves: learning how to do so is one aim of the civilised life." - A. C. Grayling
(1949 - ), Anthony Clifford Grayling, British philosopher. Quoted in his book, ‘The Meaning of Things - Applying Philosophy to Life’.

[Quote No.57250] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Be aware that differences in beliefs - for example in religions and politics - can cause rifts between people, so discuss these subjects only if absolutely necessary and then with great care and tact:] Politics ... is the hottest, most dangerous subject in the land. It's not only a conversation-wrecker, it's a friendship-wrecker, a family-wrecker, a job-wrecker, a future-wrecker." - Barbara Walters

[Quote No.57278] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum [i.e. war], echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in and keep step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent." - Charles Eliot Norton
(1827-1908) American scholar

The pathos is his ability to touch feelings, to move people emotionally. The logos is his ability to give solid reasons for an action, to move people intellectually!!" - Mortimer J. Adler
