Understanding

"'Words do not convey meanings; they call them forth.' I speak out of the context of my experience, and you listen out of the context of yours, and that is why communication is difficult."
--David O. McKay, Ensign, May 1996, Page 9

I think this is a very interesting, and wise, quote. Words truly have no meaning other than what people think they have. Without the meaning every person individually gives words, they're just a bunch of meaningless letters and sounds.

  1. Meems - I think that is a really great quote. I think it sums up quite nicely, and concisely, one of the main causes of miscommunication. Also, how do I follow your blog?
