[Quote No.60265] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"I'm a walker - that's what I do for recreation, relaxation, and relationship building. I think the practice started during my childhood days when we often took family walks on Sundays. We lived on a farm where everyone - adults and children - were busy working most of the day. In addition to the daily tasks of preparing meals and cleaning house, there were animals to be cared for, crops to plant and harvest, and then gardening and canning to be done. But Sunday was a day of rest; and a typical Sunday afternoon activity for us was taking a walk together. I remember these walks with fondness, as they gave us a time to be together in a relaxed sort of way. Later, after I became a mother, I introduced my daughters to the joys of walking. I started when they were still quite young - even before they were doing much walking on their own. I loaded them in a little red wagon and out the door we went. Sometimes, we just walked through the neighborhood; other times, we went to a park. We continued to walk as they got older, and I treasured these special times together. Sometimes, we'd begin our walk by talking about the weather or upcoming events, but soon our conversations turned to bigger issues in our personal lives and the larger world. I realize now that those walks became a path to a better understanding and appreciation of each other!" - Ruth Wilson

"[Empathy:] The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." - Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

[Quote No.60352] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Act until its a fact - fake it till make it -] Feeling Follows Action:- External behavior that expresses enthusiasm is the result of an inner feeling of enthusiasm. But it is also true that by behaving externally as if you were enthusiastic, this will also develop a similar inner feeling. If someone is doing a good deed with external signs of speed and enthusiasm, then little by little that outward behavior will influence inner feelings. On the other hand, if someone's external behavior is lazy or depressed, his inner feelings will soon be consistent with that. This is one of the most important principles for mastery of one's emotional state. Identify the mental states that you want and then act externally as if you were already in that state. This includes your total being: posture, facial expression, and even your tone of voice. [Refer Smiling and laughing and the Facial Feedback Hypothesis.] This method will give you increased joy, enthusiasm, confidence and serenity. With practice, you will gain true self-mastery." - Aish.com

[Quote No.60415] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Focus on the positive rather than the negative: Count your blessings rather than your complaints:-] 'How Complaining Rewires Your Brain for Negativity' - Research shows that most people complain once a minute during a typical conversation. Complaining is tempting because it feels good, but like many other things that are enjoyable - such as smoking or eating a pound of bacon for breakfast - complaining isn't good for you. Your brain loves efficiency and doesn't like to work any harder than it has to. When you repeat a behavior, such as complaining, your neurons branch out to each other to ease the flow of information. This makes it much easier to repeat that behavior in the future - so easy, in fact, that you might not even realize you're doing it. You can't blame your brain. Who’d want to build a temporary bridge every time you need to cross a river? It makes a lot more sense to construct a permanent bridge. So, your neurons grow closer together, and the connections between them become more permanent. Scientists like to describe this process as, 'Neurons that fire together, wire together.' Repeated complaining rewires your brain to make future complaining more likely. Over time, you find it's easier to be negative than to be positive, regardless of what's happening around you. Complaining becomes your default behavior, which changes how people perceive you. And here's the kicker: complaining damages other areas of your brain as well. Research from Stanford University has shown that complaining shrinks the hippocampus - an area of the brain that's critical to problem solving and intelligent thought. Damage to the hippocampus is scary, especially when you consider that it's one of the primary brain areas destroyed by Alzheimer's. Complaining Is Also Bad for Your Health: While it's not an exaggeration to say that complaining leads to brain damage, it doesn't stop there. When you complain, your body releases the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol shifts you into fight-or-flight mode, directing oxygen, blood, and energy away from everything but the systems that are essential to immediate survival. One effect of cortisol, for example, is to raise your blood pressure and blood sugar so that you'll be prepared to either escape or defend yourself. All the extra cortisol released by frequent complaining impairs your immune system and makes you more susceptible to high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. It even makes the brain more vulnerable to strokes. It's Not Just You... Since human beings are inherently social, our brains naturally and unconsciously mimic the moods of those around us, particularly people we spend a great deal of time with. This process is called neuronal mirroring, and it's the basis for our ability to feel empathy. The flip side, however, is that it makes complaining a lot like smoking - you don't have to do it yourself to suffer the ill effects. You need to be cautious about spending time with people who complain about everything. Complainers want people to join their pity party so that they can feel better about themselves. Think of it this way: If a person were smoking, would you sit there all afternoon inhaling the second-hand smoke? You'd distance yourself, and you should do the same with complainers. The Solution to Complaining: There are two things you can do when you feel the need to complain. One is to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. That is, when you feel like complaining, shift your attention to something that you're grateful for. Taking time to contemplate what you're grateful for isn't merely the right thing to do; it reduces the stress hormone cortisol by 23%. Research conducted at the University of California, Davis, found that people who worked daily to cultivate an attitude of gratitude experienced improved mood and energy and substantially less anxiety due to lower cortisol levels. Any time you experience negative or pessimistic thoughts, use this as a cue to shift gears and to think about something positive. In time, a positive attitude will become a way of life. The second thing you can do - and only when you have something that is truly worth complaining about - is to engage in solution-oriented complaining. Think of it as complaining with a purpose. Solution-oriented complaining should do the following: -- Have a clear purpose. Before complaining, know what outcome you're looking for. If you can't identify a purpose, there's a good chance you just want to complain for its own sake, and that's the kind of complaining you should nip in the bud. -- Start with something positive. It may seem counterintuitive to start a complaint with a compliment, but starting with a positive helps keep the other person from getting defensive. For example, before launching into a complaint about poor customer service, you could say something like, 'I've been a customer for a very long time and have always been thrilled with your service...' -- Be specific. When you're complaining it's not a good time to dredge up every minor annoyance from the past 20 years. Just address the current situation and be as specific as possible. Instead of saying, 'Your employee was rude to me,' describe specifically what the employee did that seemed rude. -- End on a positive. If you end your complaint with, 'I'm never shopping here again,' the person who's listening has no motivation to act on your complaint. In that case, you're just venting, or complaining with no purpose other than to complain. Instead, restate your purpose, as well as your hope that the desired result can be achieved, for example, 'I'd like to work this out so that we can keep our business relationship intact.' Bringing It All Together: Just like smoking, drinking too much, and lying on the couch watching TV all day, complaining is bad for you. Put my advice to use, and you'll reap the physical, mental, and performance benefits that come with a positive frame of mind." - Travis Bradberry, Ph.D.

"It is a great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth [fraud]. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible and he who permits himself to tell a lie [defraud] once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual, he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all it's good dispositions." - Thomas Jefferson

"See yourself being a master of gratitude [because things are 'good' and 'not worse'] in the future. Mentally picture how this will help you feel joy the moment you are awake and are grateful for being alive. See how you can be grateful and happy for each breath. Realize that when you master gratitude, you will see a happy face every time you look into the mirror. See how your entire quality of life will be improved. See how other people will tell you that they enjoy being around you because you are such a happy person!" - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda: Seek advice from others:-] One might expect that a wise person to whom people come for advice would rely on his own wisdom and not feel a need to consult others. Whereas a fool should realize he frequently makes mistakes and should therefore seek counsel from others before taking action. In reality, it is just the opposite. The wise person, though justified in relying on his own judgment, nevertheless listens to the advice of others. He realizes his biases and prejudices might cause him to make errors in his own matters. The fool, however, who should realize how often he makes mistakes, considers himself wise and does not listen to what others have to say." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin

"[Ask people about themselves and their interests and they will enjoy the conversation:] Talking about ourselves - whether in a personal conversation or through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter - triggers the same sensation of pleasure in the brain as food or money, researchers reported Monday. About 40% of everyday speech is devoted to telling others about what we feel or think. Now, through five brain imaging and behavioral experiments, Harvard University neuroscientists have uncovered the reason: It feels so rewarding, at the level of brain cells and synapses, that we can't help sharing our thoughts. 'Self-disclosure is extra rewarding,' said Harvard neuroscientist Diana Tamir, who conducted the experiments with Harvard colleague Jason Mitchell. Their findings were published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. 'People were even willing to forgo money in order to talk about themselves,' Ms. Tamir said." - Eric Barker

"Keep Your Honor: Do not feel any less self-esteem or become upset if other people speak or act condescendingly to you. The Sages have said that the honored person is the one who honors others. The converse applies: Who is a lowly person? One who tries to lower others. Being an honored person is dependent on your behavior towards others and not on other people's behavior toward you. Why feel any lack of self-worth [self-esteem] just because someone acts disrespectfully to you? Keep focused on your behavior toward others. When someone does not treat you with respect, it is his problem - not yours." - Rabbi Zelig Pliskin
Quote from his book, 'Gateway to Happiness', p.128.

[Quote No.60820] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] The Press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of the government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people [because without the whole truth informed consent and individual freedom and personal responsibility is impossible]." - Justice Hugo L. Black

[Quote No.60865] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:- ...A] function of free speech under our system of government is to invite dispute. It may indeed best serve it's high purpose when it indices a condition of unrest, creates dissatisfaction with things as they are, or even stirs people to anger. Speech is often provocative and challenging. It may strike at prejudices and preconceptions and have profound unsettling effects as it presses for understanding." - Justice Potter Stewart
(1915-1985), U. S. Supreme Court Justice. Source: in Free Speech and Political Protest [Marvin Summers], 1967.

[Quote No.60866] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:-] The people's right to obtain information does not, of course, depend on any assured ability to understand its significance or use it wisely. Facts belong to the people simply because they relate to interests that are theirs, government that is theirs, and votes that they may desire to cast, for they are entitled to an active role in shaping every fundamental decision of state." - Edmond Cahn

Black

[Quote No.60887] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[While it is best to give people the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise remember Roman emperor and stoic philosopher Marcus Aurelius' morning recitation to himself to ward off being unexpectedly disappointed by people that day: Today...] I shall meet with meddling, ungrateful, violent, treacherous, envious, and unsociable people. [But remember it could always be worse and it is best for my happiness if I only try to control what is within my power and accept and distract my attention-focus from what isn't, especially if otherwise it would upset me.]" - Marcus Aurelius
(121 AD - 180 AD), stoic philosopher and Roman emperor from 161 AD till his death. He knew of what he spoke, for example, in 'A Guide to the Good Life' by William B. Irvine, writes of him that 'He was sick, possibly with an ulcer. His family life was a source of distress: his wife appears to have been unfaithful to him, and of the at least 14 children she bore him, only six survived. Added to this were the stresses that came with ruling an empire. During his reign, there were numerous frontier uprisings, and Marcus often went personally to oversee campaigns against upstart tribes. His own officials – most notably, Avidius Cassius, the governor of Syria – rebelled against him. His subordinates were insolent to him, which insolence he bore with 'an unruffled temper'. Citizens told jokes at his expense and were not punished for doing so. During his reign, the empire also experienced plague, famine, and natural disasters such as the earthquake at Smyrna.'

[Quote No.60942] Need Area: Friends > Conversation
"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] The idea that political speech had to be protected at any cost dates to [America's British] Colonial days, during which the press and the public were not allowed to express themselves freely on matters of public concern. The King and his government often used restrictive measures, such as licensing of printing presses and the doctrine of seditious libel, to silence unfavorable public comment." - Craig R. Smith

"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] Everybody is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone says anything back, that is an outrage." - Sir Winston Churchill
