Vera Nazarian
“Once upon a time there were two countries, at war with each other. In order to make peace after many years of conflict, they decided to build a bridge across the ocean.

But because they never learned each other’s language properly, they could never agree on the details, so the two halves of the bridge they started to build never met.

To this day the bridge extends far into the ocean from both sides, and simply ends half way, miles in the wrong direction from the meeting point.

And the two countries are still at war.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Erik Pevernagie

Trenton Lee Stewart
“Mr. Benedict: "After I woke up and composed myself, however, I realized the flowers must certainly be yours, Constance, to do with as you please. At any rate -- "
Mr.Benedict broke off, for just then Constance jumped to her feet, snatched the bouquet from his desk, and hurled it into the wastebasket with all the force she could muster -- so hard that flower petals flew up out of the wastebasket like tiny pink butterflies. Then placing her hands against the wall to steady herself, she stomped one foot repeatedly into the wastebasket as if trying to put out a fire.
"I see we are of the same opinion," said Mr. Benedict as Constance returned to her seat, and the others congratulated her on her judgment.”
Trenton Lee Stewart

Robert G. Ingersoll
“I have made up my mind to say my say. I shall do it kindly, distinctly; but I am going to do it. I know there are thousands of men who substantially agree with me, but who are not in a condition to express their thoughts. They are poor; they are in business; and they know that should they tell their honest thought, persons will refuse to patronize them—to trade with them; they wish to get bread for their little children; they wish to take care of their wives; they wish to have homes and the comforts of life. Every such person is a certificate of the meanness of the community in which he resides. And yet I do not blame these people for not expressing their thought. I say to them: 'Keep your ideas to yourselves; feed and clothe the ones you love; I will do your talking for you. The church can not touch, can not crush, can not starve, cannot stop or stay me; I will express your thoughts.”
Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty Of Man, Woman And Child

William Ury
“The Power of a Positive No describes how to say No when it is vital to stand up and protect your core interests and values. It is not just about how to say No, however, but about how to do so in a respectful and constructive manner that can potentially lead to agreement. As its subtitle indicates, it is about how to say No and still get to Yes.”
William Ury, Getting Past No: Negotiating in Difficult Situations

“Now we can both agree that we may not always be in agreement with each other and that there may be some irrelevant tension between us but, as logic dictates, this tension is surely not here for us to fight one another but so that we could experience companionship, friendship and love each other.”
Wald Wassermann

Roger Fisher
“In contrast to positional bargaining, the principled negotiation method of focusing on basic interests, mutually satisfying options, and fair standards typically results in a wise agreement. The method permits you to reach a gradual consensus on a joint decision efficiently.”
Roger Fisher, Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In

Jay Heinrichs
“The basic difference between an argument and a fight: an argument, done skillfully, gets people to want to do what you want. You fight to win; you argue to achieve agreement.”
Jay Heinrichs, Thank You for Arguing: What Aristotle, Lincoln, and Homer Simpson Can Teach Us About the Art of Persuasion

“With an agreement comes expectations, conditions, benefits, and consequences.”
David Benedict Zumbo

“With an agreement comes expectations, conditions, benefits and consequences.”

Peter Kreeft
“Reader: Why would an unbeliever read you?/
Author: For the same reason a believer should read an unbeliever. If you know only what you know, you don't even know that. You understand things only by contrast. Why should a Republican listen to a Democrat? Why should people who disagree dialog with each other?”
Peter Kreeft, Making Sense Out of Suffering

Craig D. Lounsbrough
“Incessantly demanding that others agree with us evidences the insecurities that we have regarding both our opinion as well as our ability to defend it.”
Craig D. Lounsbrough
