Communication

Resist the Urge

“The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” – Dorothy Nevill

When the Time Comes

“Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart, but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes.” – Mark Amend

Your Choice

“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.” – William Wilberforce

Shared Power

“The characteristics of healthy boundaries include self-respect; non-tolerance of abuse or disrespect; responsibility for exploring and nurturing personal potential; two-way communication of wants, needs, and feelings; expectations of reciprocity; and sharing responsibility and power.” – Laurie Buchanan

What do you Stand For?

“Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for – YOU.” – Shannon L. Alder

Remember the Name

“Calling a person by name makes him/her feel recognized, appreciated, and special. It shows respect and that you are genuinely interested in making a connection. You make them feel remembered!” – Susan C. Young

Three Gates

“Before you speak let your words pass through three gates. At the first gate ask, ‘Is it true?’ At the second gate ask, ‘Is it necessary?’ At the third gate ask, ‘Is it kind?’” – Sufi Saying

Coexist

“Tolerance implies no lack of commitment to one’s own beliefs, rather it condemns the oppression or persecution of others.” – John F. Kennedy

We Gotta Start Somewhere

“Nothing is more precious than peace. Peace is the most basic starting point for the advancement of humankind.” – Daisaku Ikeda

You are Winning and You are Strong

“Ignore any loss of nerve. Ignore any loss of self-confidence. Ignore any doubt or confusion. Move on believing in love, in peace, and harmony, and in great accomplishment. Remember joy isn’t a stranger to you. You are winning and you are strong. Love. Love first, love always, love forever.” – Anne Rice
