Communication Quotes

Communication is one of the most important tools in human growth as it helped the modern civilization to evolve in an inventive manner. Communication has various classifications depending on their nature –Intra personal, inter personal, group and mass communication are the main leagues of communication. When a person thinks in himself, it becomes intra personal communication while he interacts with another person, the mode of communication becomes interpersonal.

The growth in human life comes through proper communication, thus the importance of communication is as superior as any other factor that contributes high to the society.
