Roland Barthes
“I can do everything with my language but not with my body. What I hide by my language, my body utters. I can deliberately mold my message, not my voice. By my voice, whatever it says, the other will recognize "that something is wrong with me". I am a liar (by preterition), not an actor. My body is a stubborn child, my language is a very civilized adult...”
Roland Barthes, A Lover's Discourse: Fragments

Michael Finkel
“His chief form of entertainment was reading. The last moments he was in a cabin were usually spent scanning bookshelves and nightstands. The life inside a book always felt welcoming to Knight. It pressed no demands on him, while the world of actual human interactions was so complex. Conversations between people can move like tennis games, swift and unpredictable. There are constant subtle visual and verbal cues, there's innuendo, sarcasm, body language, tone. Everyone occasionally fumbles an encounter, a victim of social clumsiness. It's part of being human.
To Knight, it all felt impossible. His engagement with the written word might have been the closest he could come to genuine human encounters. The stretch of days between thieving raids allowed him to tumble into the pages, and if he felt transported he could float in bookworld, undisturbed, for as long as he pleased.”
Michael Finkel, The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit

Sam Owen
“Confidence is not posting endless selfies, or repeatedly protesting how happy or in love we are, it’s a subtle yet noticeable sheen that emanates from our being - our eyes, our words, our body language.”

Val McDermid
“Everybody seemed to like Skype except him, Tony thought, closing his office door then settling in front of his screen. His dislike was both personal and professional. Everybody looked weird on Skype. Everyone, frankly, looked like a potential patient. There was something very unsettling about that fish-eyed stare. Even people he liked looked deranged. From a professional perspective, the trouble was you could never see enough of the person you were in conversation with to gauge their body language. They might be giving off all sort of signals you’d be aware of in what his boss had taken to calling “F2F encounters,” but the Skype interface could hide a multitude of clues.”
Val McDermid

Lawrence Booth
“The captains of England and Australia can barely exchange pleasantries these days without a body-language expert immediately declaiming on the angle of their handshakes.”
Lawrence Booth

John Steinbeck
“Her face looked for the answer that is always concealed in language.”
John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

“Don’t pass my voice, what I said about! If you want to-pack the expression, the context and even the body language with it. Misunderstandings are like by-product of mishandling the whole transportation of what was said.”
Praveen Chenna

Sam Owen

Bobby F. Kimbrough Jr.
“When you're ready to live as the victor and not the victim, you have to change the language that you give to yourself and then you have to change the conversation that you give to others. Words matter.”
Bobby F. Kimbrough, Jr.


Crickets chirp,
Birds sing,
Dogs howl,
It's their own thing.
Cats purr,
Mice squeak,
Cows moo,
It's not what you think.
Whales whistle,
Dolphins click,
Snakes hiss,
So listen to this.
Sheep baa,
Rabbits twitch,
If you can't speak,
It's only a glitch.
A body speaks,
Their hands do wave,
They're all speaking together,
Now don't be so naïve.
It's all a language,
Which we don't hear,
b\Because it's not our own,
What do we care!”
Anthony T.Hincks

Petra Hermans
“If My Body Language Cannot Help ... Falling ...
In Love By Your Challenges ... I Will Not Control.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When the eyes say one thing, and the tongue another, a practiced man relies on the language of the first.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

A.K. Kuykendall
“I'm sitting naked on the edge of the bed with my legs ajar, caressing soft parts; marveling at the pulchritude of her navel. I look up to admire the magnificent curvature of her perky breasts and her endearing smile. I was never in love with her desire to undergo cosmetic surgery. I was then, and have fervently remained, in love with her happiness.”
A.K. Kuykendall

“Don't let your body language betray the confidence and sincerity of your words. Be truthful and speak with conviction.”
