On Communication ...

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.


Communication in every form is so much a part of man as man in the very depth of his being, that it must always remain possible and one can never know how far it will go.

Karl Jaspers

Transport of the mails, transport of the human voice, transport of flickering pictures - in this century as in others our highest accomplishments still have the single aim of bringing men together.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900-1944)

* An excerpt from 'Wind, Sand, and Stars.'

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Martin Luther King (1929-1968)

* An excerpt from a speech at St. Louis, March 22, 1964.
