My top 10 Communication Quotes of 2011

by Betty Lochner on December 27, 2011

Steve Jobs quoteAs 2011 closes in, I offer my second annual list of favorite communication quotes.

This year some of my favorites have been found on the back of a business card, in a church bulletin, on a tunnel wall, and in a coffee shop.

It was hard to decide on my favorites,  and this year I challenged myself to keep it to 10 – so I finally settled on the following:

1. I  have learned to be content whatever the cirucumstances. ~ Phillipians 4:11

2. I want t0 put a ding in the universe. ~ Steve Jobs

3. Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can – there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did. ~ Sarah Caldwell

4. How do you spell love?  You don’t spell it, you feel it. ~ Winnie the Pooh

5. Be sincere; be brief; be seated. ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

6. You are in charge of your own happiness. ~ Church sign.

7. Happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne.

8. Ten percent of life is what happens to you; 90 percent is how you respond. ~ Charles Swindoll

9. Nothing is so simple that it cannot be misunderstood. ~ Freeman Teague, Jr.

10. Reflect before you act.  ~ Mulan
