Thriving on Chaos (1987)
There is a commodity in human experience. If it has happened to one person, it has happened to thousands of others.

Time (1988)
The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said.

Thirty Methods of Influence (1991)
Listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.
Real communication takes countless hours of eyeball to eyeball, back and forth...It is human beings coming to see and accept things through a constant interactive process aimed at consensus.

Harvard Business Review (1989)
I'm a great believer that any tool that enhances communication has profound effects in terms of how people can learn from each other, and how they can achieve the kind of freedoms that they're interested in.
Communication is truth; communication is happiness. To share is our duty; to go down boldly and bring to light those hidden thoughts which are the most diseased; to conceal nothing; to pretend nothing; if we are ignorant to say so; if we love our friends to let them know it.

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
