  • Habitual texters may not only cheat their existing relationships, they can also limit their ability to form future ones since they don't get to practice the art of interpreting nonverbal visual cues.

    "We never talk any more: The problem with text messaging" by Jeffrey Kluger, August 31, 2012.
  • I was nonverbal until I was four years old. Back in the 50s, I was the kind of kid they used to just put away in an institution. But then you get the milder autism where there's no speech delay, but they're socially awkward. Those kids were around when I was a child. They were just called geeks and nerds.

    "Autism & animal welfare activist Temple Grandin". "The Tavis Smiley Show", July 5, 2013.
  • And then there are my friends, and they have their own lives. While they like to talk everything through, to analyze and hypothesize, what I really need, what I'm really looking for, is not something I can articulate. It's nonverbal: I need love. I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on. And I know it's around me somewhere, but I just can't feel it.

  • Elizabeth Taylor is, in my opinion, the greatest actress in film history. She instinctively understands the camera and its nonverbal intimacies. Opening her violet eyes, she takes us into the liquid realm of emotion, which she inhabits by Pisces intuition. Richard Burton said that Taylor showed him how to act for the camera. Economy and understatement are essential. At her best, Elizabeth Taylor simply is. An electric, erotic charge vibrates the space between her face and the lens. It is an extra-sensory, pagan phenomenon.

    Camille Paglia (2011). “Sex, Art, and American Culture: Essays”, p.16, Vintage
  • Electric communication will never be a substitute for the face of someone who with their soul encourages another person to be brave and true.

  • So much of marriage was implicit and nonverbal. Had I gotten so complacent I'd forgotten to communicate?

    Jodi Picoult (2009). “Handle with Care: A Novel”, p.299, Simon and Schuster
  • The elegant study... is consistent with the themes of modern cognitive neuroscience . Every aspect of thought and emotion is rooted in brain structure and function, including many psychological disorders and, presumably, genius. The study confirms that the brain is a modular system comprising multiple intelligences, mostly nonverbal.

    "On Einstein's brain". The New York Times, June 24, 1999.
  • The most powerful part of the art is experiential, yet it's the hardest to describe because it's nonverbal.

  • Maternal behavior helps when you have to be patient with nonverbal creatures.

  • Even if fathers are more benignly helpful, and even if they spend time with us teaching us what they know, rarely do they tell uswhat they feel. They stand apart emotionally: strong perhaps, maybe caring in a nonverbal, implicit way; but their internal world remains mysterious, unseen, "What are they really like?" we ask ourselves. "What do they feel about us, about the world, about themselves?

  • Don't fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.

    Amy Cuddy (2015). “Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges”, Hachette UK
  • The simplest and most satisfactory view is that thought is simply behavior - verbal or nonverbal, covert or overt. It is not some mysterious process responsible for behavior but the very behavior itself in all the complexity of its controlling relations.

  • Two prisoners whose cells adjoin communicate with each other by knocking on the wall. The wall is the thing which separates them but is also their means of communication. It is the same with us and God. Every separation is a link.

    Simone Weil (1952). “Gravity and Grace”, p.200, U of Nebraska Press

    Kenneth Lee Pike (1967). “Language in relation to a unified theory of the structure of human behavior”, Mouton De Gruyter
  • It's nonverbal: I need love. I need the thing that happens when your brain shuts off and your heart turns on. And I know it's around me somewhere, but I just can't feel it.

    Elizabeth Wurtzel (2014). “Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America”, p.13, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
  • Poetry leads us to the unstructured sources of our beings, to the unknown, and returns us to our rational, structured selves refreshed. Having once experienced the mystery, plenitude, contradiction, and composure of a work of art, we afterward have a built-in resistance to the slogans and propaganda of oversimplification that have often contributed to the destruction of human life. Poetry is a verbal means to a nonverbal source. It is a motion to no-motion, to the still point of contemplation and deep realization.

    A. R. Ammons (1996). “Set in motion: essays, interviews, and dialogues”, Univ of Michigan Pr
  • To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others.

    FaceBook post by Tony Robbins from Apr 08, 2015
  • All that we know about the interaction between leaders and constituents or followers tells us that communication and influence flow in both directions; and in that two-way communication, nonrational, nonverbal, and unconscious elements play their part.

    John W. Gardner (1988). “Leadership: An Overview”
  • Nonverbal communication is an elaborate secret code that is written nowhere, known by none, and understood by all.

  • . . . the whole idea of WHAT HAPPENED WAS.... is not about dating. It is more about people who are not committed to who they are or are indifferent about their life in general, which is how I felt about myself when I wrote it. I had turned 40 and I was unhappy and I wanted to write about that. Dating just became the framework. . . . I like all those fringy, weird, nonverbal, quiet, tiny little things, those powerful interchanges between people, things that go unsaid, that people know are happening all the time but nobody wants to talk about. That's what I want to make movies about.

  • Some autistic people have savant skills. All autistic people do not have savant skills. Autism is a very variable disorder varying all the way from Einstein, emollient scientist, just a little bit of the trait, many scientist and engineers, down to somebody that's going to remain nonverbal.

  • I was analyzing the guys' nonverbal communication.

  • Request an apology when you believe you deserve one, but don't get in a tug of war about it. Instead, be a role model and tender a genuine apology yourself when an apology is due. Your willingness to apologize can be contagious and models maturity for your partner. Also, your non-apologizing partner may use a nonverbal way to reconnect after a fight, defuse the tension, or show you he's in a new place and wants to repair a disconnection. Accept the olive branch however it's offered.

    "Waiting For An Apology? Don’t Hold Your Breath" by Harriet Lerner, January 5, 2012.
  • I appreciate the written word and spoken word more, but Atonement sort of established so much of me. It was a character that didn't really speak, and I found that a lot of the roles I was gravitating toward after that were kind of nonverbal.

    "The legend: Jodie Foster". Interview with Saoirse Ronan, February 23, 2016.
