Conversation Quotes

Conversation is an art, which is why many people are just talkers but not good conversationalists. Conversation is the exchange of ideas, the flow of thoughts, where two or more people communicate as equals, walk through the conversation step-by-step. Conversation is not talking to people; rather it is talking to people, listening, and responding to what they say. The foundation of stimulating and effective conversation is questions, which are like a breath of fresh air preventing the conversation from flagging.
