Dialogue quotes by Eric Jerome Dickey
#1. I heard you on the phone with her. I happened to be in your arms, and you happened to be inside of me, balls deep from what I remember, so I felt the difference, felt what you felt for her, heard how your voice changed when you talked to her. #Quote by Eric Jerome Dickey
Dialogue quotes by Willow Bay
#2. With a click of the 'Post Comment' button, Netizens can quickly bring down the level of dialogue. Bloggers lob zingers, commenters trade barbs, and bullies target kids in the cyber schoolyard. Mudslinging - a time-honored political tradition - thrives on the Web. #Quote by Willow Bay
Dialogue quotes by Howard Coble
#3. I agree with the President that second-guessing is not a strategy, but at the same time, I want to continue the dialogue that ultimately will lead to bringing all of our troops home. #Quote by Howard Coble
Dialogue quotes by Daniel Goleman
#4. The book is a dialogue between The Dalai Lama and a group of scientists about how we can better handle our destructive emotions and how to overcome them. #Quote by Daniel Goleman
Dialogue quotes by Colm Toibin
#5. Describe character using dialogue. Describe character using what the characters see or do or think, but not what they had done or where they had been. #Quote by Colm Toibin
Dialogue quotes by Malcolm Boyd
#6. Real answers need to be found in dialogue and interaction and, yes, our shared human condition. This means being open to one another instead of simply fighting to maintain a prescribed position. #Quote by Malcolm Boyd
Dialogue quotes by Bernard Herrmann
#7. I feel that music on the screen can seek out and intensify the inner thoughts of the characters. It can invest a scene with terror, grandeur, gaiety, or misery. It can propel narrative switftly forward, or slow it down. It often lifts mere dialogue into the realm of poetry. Finally, it is the communicating link between the screen and the audience, reaching out and enveloping all into one single experience. #Quote by Bernard Herrmann
Dialogue quotes by Thabo Mbeki
#8. One of the matters that must be addressed is that Rwanda and Uganda have to leave the Democratic Republic of the Congo. We're also supporting processes to ensure that the political dialogue among the Congolese themselves takes place so that the people there can decide their future. #Quote by Thabo Mbeki
Dialogue quotes by Elton John
#9. Instead of more violence why isn't there a meeting of religious leaders. It's all got to be dialogue - that's the only way. Get everybody from each religion together and say 'Listen, this can't go on. Why do we have all this hatred?' #Quote by Elton John
Dialogue quotes by Clint Eastwood
#10. Comedy isn't necessarily all dialogue. Think of Buster Keaton: the poker face and all this chaos going on all around him. Sometimes it's a question of timing, of the proper rhythm. #Quote by Clint Eastwood
Dialogue quotes by Aleister Crowley
#11. It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of performing these small ceremonies regularly, and being as nearly accurate as possible with regard to the times. You must not mind stopping in the middle of a crowded thoroughfare - lorries or no lorries - and saying the Adorations; and you must not mind snubbing your guest - or your host - if he or she should prove ignorant of his or her share of the dialogue. It is perhaps because these matters are so petty and trivial in appearance that they afford so excellent a training. They teach you concentration, mindfulness, moral and social courage, and a host of other virtues. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Dialogue quotes by Jon Brion
#12. We're so used to everything being properly manicured, like you can hear every footstep in a movie, you can hear every bit of dialogue, and everything is in its place. #Quote by Jon Brion
Dialogue quotes by Michael Scott
#13. And now that they have us here, under their control, they've dropped whatever act they had on earth. We're seeing them as they really are.' He dipped his glove into the water and watched as the water turned golden. The air suddenly smelled of citrus. 'Look! It's orange juice!'
'Josh, focus!'
'You sound just like Mom or Isis or whatever her name is. #Quote by Michael Scott
Dialogue quotes by Jacqueline E. Smith
#14. I can't believe you're afraid of ghosts."
"Really? I'm afraid of everything: ghosts, germs, vulnerability, the dark, Slender Man, public speaking, earwigs... #Quote by Jacqueline E. Smith
Dialogue quotes by Katrina Kaif
#15. I'm not a television anchor for a Hindi channel or a radio jockey. So I may not be able to have a spontaneous conversation in Hindi. I'm a Bollywood actress, and I can certainly speak my dialogue in Hindi. #Quote by Katrina Kaif
Dialogue quotes by Becky Albertalli
#16. I always thought love was about the showstopper moments. No dialogue, no filler. But if the quiet parts are filler, maybe filler's underrated. #Quote by Becky Albertalli
Dialogue quotes by Edward Norton
#17. I'm an actor, and, beyond that, the thing I do most compulsively is writing. So I come at it very much from this sense of character. I get interested in people. And I feel confident in my capacity to absorb and manifest the characteristics of people. I have a real auditory hang-up for dialogue; re-creating the way people talk really is an addiction in my brain. #Quote by Edward Norton
Dialogue quotes by Jim Clyburn
#18. We are hopeful about the opportunities ahead, and stand ready to join this President in an open and honest dialogue about improving the state of our union for all Americans not the select few. #Quote by Jim Clyburn
Dialogue quotes by Durga Chew-Bose
#19. What tethers me to my parents is the unspoken dialogue we share about how much of my character is built on the connection I feel to the world they were raised in but that I've only experienced through photos, visits, food. It's not mine and yet, I get it. First-generation kids, I've always thought, are the personification of déjà vu. #Quote by Durga Chew-Bose
Dialogue quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#20. Because we are rooted in a generous Christian heritage, we are eager to collaborate with people of other faiths, and those seeking the common good. Our networks of dialogue and action thus extend beyond Christian communities to persons of all faiths, as well as to communities that are not themselves faith-based. We welcome allies and allegiances wherever we find common cause ... #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Dialogue quotes by Emmanuel Levinas
#21. A fine risk is always something to be taken in philosophy ... Philosophy thus arouses a drama between philosophers and an intersubjective movement which does not resemble the dialogue of teamworkers in science, nor even the Platonic dialogue which is the reminiscence of a drama rather than a drama itself. It is sketched out in a different structure; empirically it is realized as the history of philosophy in which new interlocutors always enter who have to restate, but in which the former ones take up the floor to answer in the interpretations they arouse, and in which, nonetheless, despite a lack of "certainty in one's movements" or because of it, no one is allowed a relaxation of attention or a lack of strictness. #Quote by Emmanuel Levinas
Dialogue quotes by Elie Wiesel
#22. In the word question, there is a beautiful word - quest. I love that word. We are all partners in a quest. The essential questions have no answers. You are my question, and I am yours - and then there is dialogue. The moment we have answers, there is no dialogue. Questions unite people. #Quote by Elie Wiesel
Dialogue quotes by Ray Bradbury
#23. Screenplays are not writing. They're a fake form of writing. It's a lot of dialogue and very little atmosphere. Very little description. Very little character work. It's very dangerous. You'll never learn to write. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Dialogue quotes by Alexander Pope
#24. The Wit of Cheats, the Courage of a Whore,
Are what ten thousand envy and adore:
All, all look up, with reverential Awe,
At crimes that 'scape, or triumph o'er the Law:
While Truth, Worth, Wisdom, daily they decry-`
'Nothing is sacred now but Villainy'

- Epilogue to the Satires, Dialogue I #Quote by Alexander Pope
Dialogue quotes by Mystery
#25. Many men understand and appreciate that seduction first makes women feel uncomfortable. What these men do instead is focus on comfort first.
What these men don't realize is that women of beauty get bombarded by these nice guys every day, and it can grow quite tiresome. While not as offensive as these seducer, the nice guy is no less a bother. There are simply too many nice guys approaching them in a day to indulge in the same old lengthy dialogue time after time. Without attraction first, simply saying, "Hi, I'm Joe. What's your name?" will smack of every nice guy before you. Why would a woman who isn't attracted to you care what your name is or bother to even remember it? Why would she divulge personal information just because you asked? #Quote by Mystery
Dialogue quotes by Bernardo Bertolucci
#26. English dialogue is the best in the world. So dry and direct. The Italian language is beautiful, but it is too literary. #Quote by Bernardo Bertolucci
Dialogue quotes by Ken Danby
#27. I must have the personal dialogue, the private time, with each painting in progress. I can't share it with anyone until it's done. #Quote by Ken Danby
Dialogue quotes by Aziz Ansari
#28. Instead of yelling your opinion, or telling people to shut up, or engaging in this clickbait-internet culture, have a dialogue with someone and ask people questions and listen to what they have to say. #Quote by Aziz Ansari
Dialogue quotes by Deepak Chopra
#29. When you practice positive inner dialogue, people will want to bond with you, help you, be near you. They want to share in the bliss that shines through your eyes and is reflected in your every action. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Dialogue quotes by S.C. Parris
#30. Tears fled her eyes as she ran, and they slid into her ears, but she did not wipe them, no, she pressed forward through the many trees, keeping her eyes upon the large shadow that flew forward, almost guiding her out of the woods, but that was preposterous – so why am I following it?
What do you mean why are you following it? It's the only thing that's putting distance between you and those...monsters back there!
But what about Lord Delacroix?
What the devil about him?
He tried to keep you safe – he truly did attempt to save you -
And what did that get him? Crushed by a damned Lycan – again!
But I should still go back to save him....
I should keep moving!
But he's saved my life – I can't let him die!
Technically, he's already dead, Alexi....
Goddamn it all!
Run – run now – come back when you're safe!
Come back? With who?!
Help, of course!
Where on Earth am I going to find help?! #Quote by S.C. Parris
Dialogue quotes by Plato
#31. [Dialogue between Solon and an Egyptian Priest]
In the Egyptian Delta, at the head of which the river Nile divides, there is a certain district which is called the district of Sais [...] To this city came Solon, and was received there with great honour; he asked the priests who were most skilful in such matters, about antiquity, and made the discovery that neither he nor any other Hellene knew anything worth mentioning about the times of old. On one occasion, wishing to draw them on to speak of antiquity, he began to tell about the most ancient things in our part of the world-about Phoroneus, who is called "the first man," and about Niobe; and after the Deluge, of the survival of Deucalion and Pyrrha; and he traced the genealogy of their descendants, and reckoning up the dates, tried to compute how many years ago the events of which he was speaking happened. Thereupon one of the priests, who was of a very great age, said: O Solon, Solon, you Hellenes are never anything but children, and there is not an old man among you. Solon in return asked him what he meant. I mean to say, he replied, that in mind you are all young; there is no old opinion handed down among you by ancient tradition, nor any science which is hoary with age. #Quote by Plato
Dialogue quotes by Dalai Lama
#32. I must have dialogue with the Chinese government, and dialogue requires compromise. Therefore, I'm speaking for genuine self-rule, not for independence. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Dialogue quotes by Paul Bettany
#33. I do feel that scripts get developed now to a point where they're sort of actor-proof. If the actor is not very good, the narrative still survives because it's all in the dialogue. Not to say there aren't great performances in English-language films, because there are every year, but the 1970s were awash with great performances, and I was wondering whether it had to do with the amount of space and the amount of responsibility given to the actors. #Quote by Paul Bettany
Dialogue quotes by Frantz Fanon
#34. In order to assimilate the culture of the oppressor and venture into his fold, the colonized subject has to pawn some of his own intellectual possessions. For instance, one of the things he has had to assimilate is the way the colonialist bourgeoisie thinks. This is apparent in the colonized intellectual's inaptitude to engage in dialogue. For he is unable to make himself inessential when confronted with a purpose or idea. On the other hand, when he operates among the people he is constantly awestruck. He is literally disarmed by their good faith and integrity. He is then constantly at risk of becoming a demagogue. He turns into a kind of mimic man who nods his assent to every word by the people, transformed by him into an arbiter of truth. But the fellah, the unemployed and the starving do not lay claim to truth. They do not say they represent the truth because they are the truth in their very being.

During this period the intellectual behaves objectively like a vulgar opportunist. His maneuvering, in fact, is still at work. The people would never think of rejecting him or cutting the ground from under his feet. What the people want is for everything to be pooled together. The colonized intellectual's insertion into this human tide will find itself on hold because of his curious obsession with detail. It is not that the people are opposed to analysis. They appreciate clarification, understand the reasoning behind an argument, and like to see where they are going. #Quote by Frantz Fanon
Dialogue quotes by Tom Robbins
#35. Silence is a mirror. So faithful, and yet so unexpected, is the relection it can throw back at men that they will go to almost any length to avoid seeing themselves in it, and if ever its duplicating surface is temporarily wiped clean of modern life's ubiquitous hubbub, they will hasten to fog it over with such desperate personal noise devices as polite conversation, hummin, whistling, imaginary dialogue, schizophrenic babble, or, should it come to that, the clandestine cannonry of their own farting. Only in sleep is silence tolerated, and even there, most dreams have soundtracks. Since meditation is a deliberate descent into deep internal hush, a mute stare into the ultimate looking glass, it is regarded with suspicion by the nattering masses; with hostility by buisness interests (people sitting in silent serenity are seldom consuming goods); and with spite by a clergy whose windy authority it is seen to undermine and whose bombastic livelihood it is perceived to threaten. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Dialogue quotes by Cory Bernardi
#36. What I seek to do is to establish the facts as I see them, or as I understand them, and to engage in constructive dialogue to get good outcomes. #Quote by Cory Bernardi
Dialogue quotes by Joshua Rosenthal
#37. We can, and must, develop dialogue and relatedness with our body because it's talking to us all the time. And please remember, your body loves you. It does everything it can to keep you alive and functioning. You can feed it garbage, and it will take it and digest it for you. You can deprive it of sleep, but still it gets you up and running next morning. You can drink too much alcohol, and it will eliminate it from your system. It loves you unconditionally and does its best to allow you to live the life you came here for. The real issue in this relationship is not whether your body loves you, but whether you love your body. In any relationship, if one partner is loving, faithful and supportive, it's easy for the other to take that person for granted. That's what most of us do with our bodies. It is time for you to shift this, and working to understand your cravings is one of the best places to begin. Then you can build a mutually loving relationship with your own body. #Quote by Joshua Rosenthal
Dialogue quotes by Edward Said
#38. It [9/11 event] transcended the political and moved into the metaphysical. There was a kind of cosmic, demonic quality of mind at work here, which refused to have any interest in dialogue and political organization and persuasion. #Quote by Edward Said
Dialogue quotes by Francis Ford Coppola
#39. I landed a job with Roger Corman. The job was to write the English dialogue for a Russian science fiction picture. I didn't speak any Russian. He didn't care whether I could understand what they were saying; he wanted me to make up dialogue. #Quote by Francis Ford Coppola
Dialogue quotes by Tyler Perry
#40. I want an open dialogue. I want husbands and wives and people in relationships to walk out of the theater thinking, "Could this happen to me? I know I'm being tempted." #Quote by Tyler Perry
Dialogue quotes by Larry Gagosian
#41. I think functioning as a business manager can be a hindrance to having a real dialogue with the artist. I do think that artists need good lawyers and accountants, because they're dealing with serious money. But an artist who stands behind a manager? That's a little different. I think that can be a bad buffer. #Quote by Larry Gagosian
Dialogue quotes by Euginia Herlihy
#42. Prayer is a 24/7 unique dialogue between you and God('Pray without ceasing,' Thessalanians5:17NKJV). #Quote by Euginia Herlihy
Dialogue quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#43. The disquieting thing about newscaster-babble or editorial-speak is its ready availability as a serf idiom, a vernacular of deference. Mr. Secretary, are we any nearer to bringing about a dialogue in this process ? #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Dialogue quotes by Mark Waters
#44. Unlike other young actors I've worked with who will remain nameless, Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry would never go out partying after work, but would immediately hunker down to start working on the reams of labyrinthine dialogue they had to navigate for the next day's work. #Quote by Mark Waters
Dialogue quotes by Conor Oberst
#45. On every Bright Eyes record, there's some kind of sound collage that begins it. Some of them have dialogue, some don't. I like it because it can kind of slow down the attention span a bit. It's a way to draw you in to the rest of the record. #Quote by Conor Oberst
Dialogue quotes by David Ignatius
#46. A disaffected America can be drawn into a civilized - but disruptive - dialogue about political change and reformation. #Quote by David Ignatius
Dialogue quotes by John Leguizamo
#47. You have the hilarity and the great production. These films are distinctive because they are not just topical, they tell good stories and they let scenes play out physically. Apart from the dialogue, the characters also have a non-verbal existence, for example with Scrat. #Quote by John Leguizamo
Dialogue quotes by William Zinsser
#48. Beware, then, of the long word that's no better than the short word: "assistance" (help), "numerous" (many), "facilitate" (ease), "Individual" (man or woman), "remainder" (rest), "initial" (first), "implement" (do), "sufficient" (enough), "attempt" (try), "referred to as" (called), and hundreds more. Beware of all the slippery new fad words: paradigm and parameter, prioritize and potentialize. They are all weeds that will smother what you write. Don't dialogue with someone you can talk to. Don't interface with anybody. #Quote by William Zinsser
Dialogue quotes by Mindy Kaling
#49. I don't mind that if I ever star in movies, they'll likely be mine. That's okay, because my great role models - Woody Allen, even Tyler Perry, who is actually one of my role models, even if that seems kind of strange - they do that themselves. And it's great. They build empires, and they're known as having their own voice. I think it's 20 times more fun to act on a set where I feel the freedom to change the dialogue. #Quote by Mindy Kaling
Dialogue quotes by Hans Kung
#50. No peace among the nations
without peace among the religions.
No peace among the religions
without dialogue between the religions
No dialogue between the religions
without investigation of the foundation of the religions. #Quote by Hans Kung
Dialogue quotes by Laura Resnick
#51. Poor Superman is about a married man who, much to his own surprise, enters into a passionate love affair - with another man. The experimental theatre which hosted the play here is a small place, and we happened to wind up sitting in the front row. Practically on the stage. The actors were often within a few feet of us. So, during the big love scene, when the two male leads start passionately stroking and kissing each other's stark naked bodies... and doing this so close to me that I could have touched them both with only a little effort... I sat there in mute panic, thinking, "Please don't either of you fellows get an erection. Just don't. Should I look away? Should I close my eyes? Should I just keep watching as if I'm not obsessing about your genitals? Aren't you done kissing and touching yet? Because if this goes on any longer, one of you could have an involuntary reaction, if you get my drift! And I am a total stranger sitting within four damn feet of you, in case you hadn't NOTICED!"
Though my seat wasn't as dark as usual, the writing lesson was very memorable: Don't ever pull your reader out of the frame.
Bad research. Anachronistic writing. Self-serving polemics and lectures barely disguised as narrative. Incongruity and lack of continuity. Weak characterization, leaden pacing, lack of motivation, stiff dialogue, lazy plotting... There are a thousand ways for novelist to wind up naked onstage while an appalled audience obsesses about her exposed genitals at a #Quote by Laura Resnick
Dialogue quotes by Kerry Patterson
#52. When others move to silence or violence, step out of the conversation and Make it Safe. When safety is restored, go back to the issue at hand and continue the dialogue. #Quote by Kerry Patterson
Dialogue quotes by Aung San Suu Kyi
#53. Sanctions and boycotts would be tied to serious political dialogue. #Quote by Aung San Suu Kyi
Dialogue quotes by Billy Collins
#54. To write poetry is to be very alone, but you always have the company of your influences. But you also have the company of the form itself, which has a kind of consciousness. I mean, the sonnet will simply tell you, that's too many syllables or that's too many lines or that's the wrong place.So, instead of being alone, you're in dialogue with the form. #Quote by Billy Collins
Dialogue quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#55. Ask yourself "Is the inside of me alive? #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Dialogue quotes by John Ridley
#56. My kids will find me walking around the house talking to myself and think I'm going crazy. I like to read the scripts out loud and really get the rhythm for the dialogue. #Quote by John Ridley
Dialogue quotes by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
#57. Dialogue does not happen when we are adversaries. #Quote by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
Dialogue quotes by Gloria Steinem
#58. I think my role is as a writer, especially, and then also as a speaker, an organizer, and an entre- preneur of social change. My role isn't to make choices for people-each individual or group needs to do that on their own. But as a writer and a speaker, you can describe possibilities that perhaps haven't been visible before, and aren't in other public dialogues or in the rest of the media. So I suppose I think of myself mainly as an organizer and as someone who describes possibilities. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Dialogue quotes by Hwa Sung Ryu
#59. Judging requires a lot of negative energy. When we stop our thoughts from judging another person's hidden motive, intention or character, and simply address our differences, we create a dialogue of peace and reconciliation. #Quote by Hwa Sung Ryu
Dialogue quotes by Edouard Leve
#60. Dialogue binds me Monologue imposes upon me Soliloquy isolates me The #Quote by Edouard Leve
Dialogue quotes by Martin Buber
#61. I have to tell it again and again: I have no doctrine. I only point out something. I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen. I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window. I push open the window and point outside. I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue. #Quote by Martin Buber
Dialogue quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#62. I'm using "discourse" in an older sense: discourse as response, understanding, discourse as structure both conscious and unconscious: not dialogue, but what impels and structures dialogue: not the "discourse between …" but the "discourse of … #Quote by Samuel R. Delany
Dialogue quotes by Eudora Welty
#63. Dialogue has to show not only something about the speaker that is its own revelation, but also maybe something about the speaker that he doesn't know but the other character does know. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Dialogue quotes by Jared Leto
#64. I never really expected "Hurricane" to be censored and banned around the world, but I think the good thing that came from it was that it created a dialogue, a conversation, a debate and a discussion. And that's a great thing. It brought all of us together in a unique way. And it made us look a little deeper in ourselves. I think it's a good thing. #Quote by Jared Leto
Dialogue quotes by Graham Moore
#65. Everyone remembers the pop-quiz hotshot bit from 'Speed' because it's extremely funny, and it's really smart and really witty. And the notion that action movies can have dialogue that pops just as well as the explosions is something that I hope more people continue to remember. #Quote by Graham Moore
Dialogue quotes by Ken Jennings
#66. So maybe we never would have realized we were so compatible if we hadn't been trading song lyrics and movie dialogue. That's textbook trivia right there."
Mindy looks unconvinced. "But that's how *everybody* gets together. They find some dumb thing they both know a little about that they can talk about until the waiter brings dinner. According to you, there probably isn't a marriage or a relationship or a friendship anywhere today that wasn't jump-started by trivia."
"I think that's exactly right," I agree. "To trivia. #Quote by Ken Jennings
Dialogue quotes by Emma Donoghue
#67. I would say I have sort of a natural gift for character, and following one person's point of view at a time, and dialogue, but I'm not naturally good at strong plot. #Quote by Emma Donoghue
Dialogue quotes by David S.Goyer
#68. As the CG in motion capture made it look realistic, it put more of an onus on the game makers to make the dialogue they're saying more realistic. It doesn't matter what they say when they're 8-bits, but if they look almost photo-real, it matters. More and more, the games industry is realising that. #Quote by David S.Goyer
Dialogue quotes by Dalai Lama
#69. I remain convinced that most human conflicts can be solved through genuine dialogue conducted with a spirit of openness and reconciliation. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Dialogue quotes by Elizabeth Strout
#70. Jim. If you have any other outside events, don't confess them. That's my advice, okay?""What am I going to do, Bob? I have no family.""You have family," Bob said. "You have a wife who hates you. Kids who are furious with you. A brother and sister who make you insane. And a nephew who used to be kind of a drip but apparently is not so much of a drip now. That's called family."Jim fell asleep, his head leaning forward almost to his chest #Quote by Elizabeth Strout
Dialogue quotes by Ali Larijani
#71. Iran welcomes dialogue with any other states. I wrote a letter to the three European states inviting them to resume talks, but, they cancelled it. They had thought that Iran would no longer resume talks with them. #Quote by Ali Larijani
Dialogue quotes by Iris Murdoch
#72. I hate solitude, but I'm afraid of intimacy. The substance of my life is a private conversation with myself which to turn into a dialogue would be equivalent to self-destruction. The company which I need is the company which a pub or a cafe will provide. I have never wanted a communion of souls. It's already hard enough to tell the truth to oneself. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Dialogue quotes by Martin Buber
#73. Human life and humanity come into being in genuine encounters. The hope for this hour depends upon the renewal of the immediacy of dialogue among human beings. #Quote by Martin Buber
Dialogue quotes by T.C. Boyle
#74. In order to create you have to believe in your ability to do so and that often means excluding whole chunks of normal life, and, of course, pumping yourself up as much as possible as a way of keeping on. Sort of cheering for yourself in the great football stadium of life.
(Barnes & Noble Review, email dialogue with Cameron Martin, Feb. 09, 2009) #Quote by T.C. Boyle
Dialogue quotes by C. G. Jung
#75. The present day shows with appalling clarity how little able people are to let the other man's argument count, although this capacity is a fundamental and indispensable condition for any human community. Everyone who proposes to come to terms with himself must reckon with this basic problem. For, to the degree that he does not admit the validity of the other person, he denies the "other" within himself the right to exist - and vice versa. The capacity for inner dialogue is a touchstone for outer objectivity. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Dialogue quotes by Philip K. Jason
#76. One can feel the immense joy of Amy Hill Hearth's engagement in her first novel. It radiates through every scene and through every page. Sometimes, an exceptional writer finds an exceptional premise, and the result is a truly exceptional book. Such is the case with Miss Dreamsville ... The writing is brilliant, especially the dialogue through which the characters are defined. #Quote by Philip K. Jason
Dialogue quotes by Wayne McGregor
#77. If you put yourself in a place where you're having to work at understanding something, then you keep yourself awake to all possible choices. How the body will look like in the future, the ethics of the body: those are questions that really fascinate me. Let's get the dialogue going. #Quote by Wayne McGregor
Dialogue quotes by Jarod Kintz
#78. A brick and a blanket could be used as characters in a story full of clever dialogue, such as:

Brick: I checked everywhere, and it's not where I last left it. Did you touch my penis sandwich?

Blanket: What? Eww no, why would I touch your penis sandwich?

Brick: Well, would it make you more comfortable if I put on some condiments and rolled on a condom?

Blanket: Dude, or lady, whatever you are. I'm not gay - or straight. I'm not even bisexual. I'm a blanket, and I'm asexual. I'm also not hungry now. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Dialogue quotes by Oli Anderson
#79. Dialogue reminds us that we can question to build, not only to doubt or deconstruct. #Quote by Oli Anderson
Dialogue quotes by Deborah Eisenberg
#80. It's much easier to read the stories that have a lot of dialogue; of course, they flow much more easily into speech. #Quote by Deborah Eisenberg
Dialogue quotes by Mary Lambert
#81. I know how I want to operate as an artist. And that is by having an honest, genuine dialogue about this kind of screwed up journey I've had that I'm so thankful for. #Quote by Mary Lambert
Dialogue quotes by Natasha Pulley
#82. What's that?' Thaniel said, curious. The postmarks and stamps weren't English or Japanese.

'A painting. There's a depressed Dutchman who does countryside scenes and flowers and things. It's ugly, but I have to maintain the estates in Japan and modern art is a good investment. #Quote by Natasha Pulley
Dialogue quotes by Susan Straight
#83. The best thing I could say is you do have to be a really good listener. If I go to a family reunion, and there's 400 people there, everybody comes up and tells me their stories, right? And I think that when you're a good listener, and you can imagine how someone's talking, dialogue is your key friend, is it not? #Quote by Susan Straight
Dialogue quotes by Josh Holloway
#84. I get readings, I sometimes get five a week. You'll feel like a schizophrenic by the end of that week. I don't know who I am any more. You'll be in conversation with a friend and start spitting out dialogue. #Quote by Josh Holloway
Dialogue quotes by Jo Bonner
#85. While the debate on the Patriot Act is far from over, it is important that all Americans continue in this dialogue and work together to ensure greater security for our nation. #Quote by Jo Bonner

#87. Still - and for all Obama's heavy hinting to the contrary - Islam has no "human rights." The ideas of individual rights and the dignity of man are distinctly Western, an outgrowth of the Enlightenment. And while dialogue is dignified; dhimmitude is not, even if it achieves a desired, if temporary, effect. #Quote by Ilana Mercer
Dialogue quotes by Cornel West
#88. A fully functional multiracial society cannot be achieved without a sense of history and open, honest dialogue. #Quote by Cornel West
Dialogue quotes by Hassan Blasim
#89. I began writing and became attached to writing at an early age. I began by writing poetry and experimenting with dialogues: modest plays, in other words. I also used to describe at great length the way people in the area lived. #Quote by Hassan Blasim
Dialogue quotes by Billy Wilder
#90. She was an absolute genius as a comedic actress, with an extraordinary sense for comedic dialogue. It was a God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there were ten projects that came to me, and I'd start working on them and I'd think, 'It's not going to work, it needs Marilyn Monroe.' Nobody else is in that orbit; everyone else is earthbound by comparison. #Quote by Billy Wilder
Dialogue quotes by Jefferson Bethke
#91. Sometimes how we dialogue in today's culture is just as important as why we dialogue. #Quote by Jefferson Bethke
Dialogue quotes by Raf Simons
#92. I don't see Dior as something that could become mine. I see it as a dialogue with the women who wear it. I want to stay connected to them rather than to an abstract brand. #Quote by Raf Simons
Dialogue quotes by Greg Dening
#93. Reading. The erotics of reading for me -- its moment of trembling pleasure -- lie in those times when I realise that what I am reading is just what I was about to say. It is a moment of jealousy and disappointment, as if the occasion had been stolen from me, but it is a moment of excitement, too -- because I think I would like to try and say it better, because now the monologue in my mind has become dialogue. My immediate impulse is to write something, anything, notes to tell me the significance of what I have read, an appreciative letter to the author, the first sentences in a preface to a book that will never be written. Th archives of my readings are monumentally high. I can never let these erotic moments go. They are the paper trail of my mind. #Quote by Greg Dening
Dialogue quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#94. I have been urging the leaders to listen to the aspirations and challenges of their own people, and engage in dialogue and take very bold measures. Normally, to their regret, these measures and bold reforms come too late, too little. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Dialogue quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#95. Non-violence means dialogue, using our language, the human language. Dialogue means compromise; respecting each other's rights; in the spirit of reconciliation there is a real solution to conflict and disagreement. There is no hundred percent winner, no hundred percent loser - not that way but half-and-half. That is the practical way, the only way. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Dialogue quotes by Omar Sharif
#96. To learn bad dialogue is so difficult and so boring, and to work with a stupid director who tells you to do the wrong thing, etcetera, it's just unbearable. #Quote by Omar Sharif
Dialogue quotes by Philip Guston
#97. When I see people making 'abstract' painting, I think it's just a dialogue and a dialogue isn't enough. That is to say, there is you painting and this canvas. I think there has to be a third thing; it has to be a trialogue. #Quote by Philip Guston
Dialogue quotes by Herbie Hancock
#98. Jazz is really about the human experience. It's about the ability of human beings to take the worst of circumstances and struggles and turn it into something creative and constructive. That's something that's built into the fiber of every human being. And I think that's why people can respond to it. They feel the freedom in it. And the attributes of jazz are also admirable. It's about dialogue. It's about sharing. And teamwork. It's in the moment, and it's nonjudgmental. #Quote by Herbie Hancock
Dialogue quotes by Gaston Bachelard
#99. As I stood in contemplation of the garden of the wonders of space," Milosz writes, "I had the feeling that I was looking into the ultimate depths, the most secret regions of my own being; and I smiled, because it had never occurred to me that I could be so pure, so great, so fair! My heart burst into singing with the song of grace of the universe. All these constellations are yours, they exist in you; outside your love they have no reality! How terrible the world seems to those who do not know themselves! When you felt so alone and abandoned in the presence of the sea, imagine what solitude the waters must have felt in the night, or the night's own solitude in a universe without end!" And the poet continues this love duet between dreamer and world, making man and the world into two wedded creatures that are paradoxically united in the dialogue of their solitude. #Quote by Gaston Bachelard
Dialogue quotes by Chinua Achebe
#100. What really worries me is that those who are in positions of power are not really affected by what we are writing. In the moral dialogue you want to start, you really want to involve the leaders. People ask me: "Why were you so bold as to publish A Man of the People? How did you think the Government was going to take it? You didn't know there was going to be a coup?" I said rather flippantly that nobody was going to read it anyway, so I wasn't likely to be fired from my official position. It's a distressing thought that we cannot engage our leaders in the kind of moral debate we need. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Dialogue quotes by Pope Francis
#101. In this work (peace building), the role of religion is fundamental. It is not possible to build bridges between people while forgetting God, ... But the converse is also true: it is not possible to establish true links with God while ignoring other people. Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam. #Quote by Pope Francis
Dialogue quotes by Karl Lagerfeld
#102. Doing collections, doing fashion is like a non-stop dialogue. #Quote by Karl Lagerfeld
Dialogue quotes by Martin Henderson
#103. The writer of 'The Red Road,' Aaron Guzikowski, deserves the credit. The fact that the dialogue is so understated is what makes this show so appealing, especially as an actor. #Quote by Martin Henderson
Dialogue quotes by Ernest Cline
#104. I devoured each of what Halliday referred to as "The Holy Trilogies": Star Wars (original and prequel trilogies, in that order), Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, Mad Max, Back to the Future, and Indiana Jones. (Halliday once said that he preferred to pretend the other Indiana Jones films, from Kingdom of the Crystal Skull onward, didn't exist. I tended to agree.)
I also absorbed the complete filmographies of each of his favorite directors. Cameron, Gilliam, Jackson, Fincher, Kubrick, Lucas, Spielberg, Del Toro, Tarantino. And, of course, Kevin Smith.
I spent three months studying every John Hughes teen movie and memorizing all the key lines of dialogue. #Quote by Ernest Cline
Dialogue quotes by Paul Murray
#105. The accursed ship didn't sink for a full three hours. By the time it did, I was feeling so traumatized that even watching Dogface die offered little consolation. The dialogue, the acting, the vast emptiness of the whole endeavour! Was that what passed for cinema these days? I felt like I have been violated; violated by a team of accountants. #Quote by Paul Murray
Dialogue quotes by Anne Lamott
#106. ... good dialogue encompasses both what is said and what is not said. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Dialogue quotes by Danielle Krysa
#107. Are you an artist?
I ask this question a lot. Generally, this question is met with a pause and a slightly blank look. In that moment I can almost hear the inner dialogue: "Um, Artist? Well, no. I make stuff. Sometimes. But an "Artist" with a capital A? I want to say yes, but that would be terrifying". What actually comes out of the person's mouth is usually, "Oh. Uh, not really". I should mention that this answer, and those blank looks, are always from adults. When I ask kids the same question, I get a very different response. It goes a little something like this: "Are you an artist?" "Yes". No hesitation. No thinking it over first. They have never sold a painting, or published a story, but they have absolutely no problem answering me with a loud, resounding yes. #Quote by Danielle Krysa
Dialogue quotes by Richard Foreman
#108. All the dialogue on tape, and we'd play the tape in performance. Then I thought it'd be interesting if the actor's repeated what they heard on the tape, but at a slower speed, so we'd get a web of language. #Quote by Richard Foreman
Dialogue quotes by John Gardner
#109. Though we run across exceptions, philosophical novels where explanation holds interest, the temptation to explain is one that should almost always be resisted. A good writer can get anything at all across through action and dialogue, and if he can think of no powerful reason to do otherwise, he should probably leave explanation to his reviewers and critics. The writer should especially avoid comment on what his characters are feeling, or at very least should be sure he understands the common objection summed up in the old saw Show, don't tell. #Quote by John Gardner
Dialogue quotes by Michael Austin
#110. Civic flattery - or a political culture that allows people to appear to engage in civic discourse without ever having their opinions, or even their claims of fact, seriously challenged - is ultimately more damaging to democracy than civic enmity. When we incorporate civic flattery into our personal relationships, we get shallow, insincere friendships. When we use it as the basis for political alliances, we get echo chambers. And when a skilled political manipulator flatters a large portion of the population in an attempt to acquire and consolidate power, we get perhaps the most dangerous test that a democratic society can ever face: the emergence of a demagogue. #Quote by Michael Austin
Dialogue quotes by Herbie Hancock
#111. I hope to use dialogue and culture as a means of bringing people of various cultures together, and using that as a way to resolve conflict. #Quote by Herbie Hancock
Dialogue quotes by David R. Smock
#112. One of the biggest challenges for people involved in interfaith dialogue is to break down the stereotypes of the "other" that exist within their own religious traditions and groups. Religious groups need to first acknowledge and confess their own role in fostering and contributing to injustice and conflict. (by Cilliers, Ch. 3, p. 49) #Quote by David R. Smock
Dialogue quotes by Edward De Bono
#113. In 80% of Socrates' dialogues there was no constructive outcome. He saw his role as simply pointing out what was wrong. #Quote by Edward De Bono
Dialogue quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#114. A lot of them [Germaqn actors] could come in and we could speak for the next nine hours in English and there would be no problem. It was - but it was - English wasn't the language for them to read poetry in. And there is a - there's a poetic quality to my dialogue. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Dialogue quotes by Bill Plympton
#115. For me, the perfect film has no dialogue at all. It's purely a visual, emotional, visceral kind of experience. And I think one can create wonderful depth and meaning and communication without using words. I started out as an illustrator and a cartoonist and caricature artist, so for me the visual is primary. #Quote by Bill Plympton
Dialogue quotes by John Yorke
#116. Silence of the Lambs screenwriter Ted Tally put the art of writing dialogue succinctly: 'What's important is not the emotion they're playing but the emotion they're trying to conceal. #Quote by John Yorke
Dialogue quotes by J. N. HALM
#117. One plus one makes two but two monologues do not make a dialogue. Of all the traits, characteristics, attributes and habits of today's customers, the one that has serious consequences for businesses is this - today's customer does not want to be just spoken to. She wants to be engaged in a dialogue. Today's consumer expects to be part of the conversation about the product and/or service on offer. Today's customer does not want to be fed with advertisements. Collaboration is what excites today's customer. #Quote by J. N. HALM
Dialogue quotes by Sylvester Stallone
#118. I try to eliminate as much dialogue as possible, and I guess Rambo is my really best experiment with how to eliminate dialogue. #Quote by Sylvester Stallone
Dialogue quotes by Will Forte
#119. I'm a very bad impersonator so I can't even remember if I've ever done a sports person. I mean, I think I was Bruce Jenner once but I don't think I said anything in the sketch I was just sitting there in a like a bronze track suit. No dialogue. They don't trust me with dialogue. #Quote by Will Forte
Dialogue quotes by Oli Anderson
#120. Practicing dialogue helps you to cultivate a realness that allows you to face reality on its own terms, not just the terms you'd like it to have in order to remain in your comfort zone. #Quote by Oli Anderson
Dialogue quotes by Joy Fielding
#121. I might not write fiction in the literary sense. But I write very well. My characters are good. My dialogue is good. And my stories are really involving. #Quote by Joy Fielding
Dialogue quotes by Martha Boles
#122. Teaching is a dialogue, and it is through the process of engaging students that we see ideas taken from the abstract and played out in concrete visual form. Students teach us about creativity through their personal responses to the limits we set, thus proving that reason and intuition are not antithetical. Their works give aesthetic visibility to mathematical ideas. #Quote by Martha Boles
Dialogue quotes by Lee Wyndham
#123. Don't have conversations taking place in empty space. Weave in background details of where the action (dialogue is a form of "action") is taking place. Don't have invisible people talking, either. Let the reader see them as they speak - their facial expressions and gestures. And by all means "cue" the speeches to the speakers. #Quote by Lee Wyndham
Dialogue quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#124. The Lord of Rags and Tatters. #Quote by Megan Whalen Turner
Dialogue quotes by Walter Scott
#125. Now I protest to thee, gentle reader, that I entirely dissent from Francisco de Ubeda in this matter, and hold it the most useful quality of my pen, that it can speedily change from grave to gay, and from description and dialogue to narrative and character. So that if my quill displays no other properties of its mother-goose than her mutability, truly I shall be well pleased; and I conceive that you, my worthy friend, will have no occasion for discontent. From #Quote by Walter Scott
Dialogue quotes by Randa Haines
#126. As a director, you're looking for ways to tell the story with the whole image and not primarily dialogue. #Quote by Randa Haines
Dialogue quotes by Shinzen Young
#127. Such a Zen dialogue is basically a contest, but it's really an anti-contest. It's a kind of reverse or paradoxical contest. It works like this: two people talk, and the first one who speaks from the ego loses. The one who wants to win is certainly going to lose. #Quote by Shinzen Young
Dialogue quotes by Sally Field
#128. I would take plays and I would cut out all the other dialogue and make long monologues because I felt the other kids weren't taking it as seriously as I did. #Quote by Sally Field
Dialogue quotes by Elizabeth Bowen
#129. Dialogue should convey a sense of spontaneity but eliminate the repetitiveness of real talk. #Quote by Elizabeth Bowen
Dialogue quotes by John Niven
#130. I love writing Scottish dialogue. #Quote by John Niven
Dialogue quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#131. We live in a society in which it seems that every space, every moment must be 'filled' with initiatives, activity, sound; often there is not even time to listen and dialogue ... Let us not be afraid to be silent outside and inside ourselves, so that we are able not only to perceive God's voice, but also the voice of the person next to us, the voices of others. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Dialogue quotes by Tom Robbins
#132. Safe guidelines for your conversation. Mr. Wrangle went one step further. He doesn't feel it would be emotionally beneficial - for either one of you - to converse at all. He feels that poignant dialogue will merely make your separation #Quote by Tom Robbins
Dialogue quotes by Bell Hooks
#133. I think the invitation offered the non-black reader is to join us in this expression of our familiarity and via that joining, come to understand that when black people come together to celebrate and rejoice in black critical thinking, we do so not to exclude or to separate, but to participate more fully in world community. However, we must first be able to dialogue with one another, to give one another subject-to-subject recognition that is an act of resistance that is part of the decolonizing, anti-racist process. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Dialogue quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#134. You don't need to know the purpose as you write, but when you read over something you've written, you should be able to point to any given element - be that a line of dialogue, a descriptive phrase, a plot point - and say why it's there. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Dialogue quotes by Charles Kennedy
#135. We Liberal Democrats believe in dialogue. We believe in cooperation with both sides of industry and between both sides of industry. And we believe in the language of cooperation. We reject the language of confrontation. #Quote by Charles Kennedy
Dialogue quotes by Dave McKean
#136. I kind of enjoy the limits. If you've got no limits, you can do absolutely anything, it's very difficult, actually. I always enjoyed working with machines like color photocopiers and letter-pressing type settings, things where the limits are very apparent. You push the machine to do something, and it tries to do its best, and it usually has wonderful qualities all of its own. Then you get a sort of dialogue going, and the limitations become qualities. #Quote by Dave McKean
Dialogue quotes by Raf Simons
#137. Well, my own men's collection always felt very free back in the days before Jil. Once you make it this kind of dialogue with other people, with a fashion show and clients and whatever, it becomes something else. Free meets not so free. #Quote by Raf Simons
Dialogue quotes by Rudolf Nureyev
#138. A pas de deux is a dialogue of love. How can there be conversation if one partner is dumb? #Quote by Rudolf Nureyev
Dialogue quotes by Michael Haneke
#139. My films are intended as polemical statements against the American 'barrel down' cinema and its dis-empowerment of the spectator. They are an appeal for a cinema of insistent questions instead of false (because too quick) answers, for clarifying distance in place of violating closeness, for provocation and dialogue instead of consumption and consensus. #Quote by Michael Haneke
Dialogue quotes by Etgar Keret
#140. The reason I write is that I'm not in dialogue with my emotions; writing puts me in touch with myself. #Quote by Etgar Keret
Dialogue quotes by Lynda Barry
#141. I do love to eavesdrop. It's inspirational, not only for subject matter but for actual dialogue, the way people talk. #Quote by Lynda Barry
Dialogue quotes by Dalai Lama
#142. The reality today is that we are all interdependent and have to co-exist on this small planet. Therefore, the only sensible and intelligent way of resolving differences and clashes of interests, whether between individuals or nations, is through dialogue. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Dialogue quotes by Pippa DaCosta
#143. And there's no synthetic owners manual?" His lips twitched, smile threatening to break into a grin.

A joke. He wasn't funny. "Do you come with an owners' manual, Captain? Because I'd like to study your troubleshooting section."

"Would you like to strip me down to my nuts and bolts, and figure out what makes me tick?"

"I knew what made you tick from the moment we first met. That's why I punched you between the legs."

~ #1001 & Caleb #Quote by Pippa DaCosta
Dialogue quotes by Takeshi Kitano
#144. I believe you shouldn't force the audience's interpretation of a character or a story. The more you explain things, the less intriguing and imaginable they are for viewers ... Film to me, in its essence, in its ultimate nature, is silent. Music and dialogue are there to fill what is lacking in the image. But you should be able to tell the story with moving pictures alone. For my next project, though, I'd like to make the kind of film where the characters blabber all the time. #Quote by Takeshi Kitano
Dialogue quotes by Willowy Whisper
#145. And the kiss?" Her frown was deep, sorrowful. "That was the script, too. I know. But I don't see any difference. You held her like you held me. You even looked at her the same."
"I was acting."
"I know." Tears brimmed her eyes. "That's what I'm afraid of. #Quote by Willowy Whisper
Dialogue quotes by Pope Francis
#146. The parish is the presence of the Church in any given territory, an environment for hearing God's word, for growth in Christian life, for dialogue, proclamation, charitable outreach, worship and celebration. #Quote by Pope Francis
Dialogue quotes by Jacque Fresco
#147. We must learn to outgrow our egos in exchange for constructive dialogue rather than debate. In addition, we must be capable of stating problems and proposing solutions clearly and succinctly, without distortion of meaning or misunderstanding, even when these solutions are radically opposed to accepted norms. #Quote by Jacque Fresco
Dialogue quotes by Andre Aciman
#148. Are you going to be okay?'

'I thought I was. I'll get over it.' I'd heard too many characters say the same thing in too many novels. It let the runaway lover off the hook. It allowed everyone to save face. It restored dignity and courage to the one whose cover had been completely blown. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Dialogue quotes by Storm Saulter
#149. A lot of the times the first take was the best, because the actors are not analyzing themselves as much; they just do it. I believe in happy accidents and I'm not necessarily into actors getting the dialogue exactly as I wrote it; I'm much more into them understanding the motivations and have it come out in a natural way, and maybe catch something that I didn't expect. #Quote by Storm Saulter
Dialogue quotes by Dana Arnold
#150. History is about the past. Yet it exists only in the present – the moment of its creation as history provides us with a narrative constructed after the events with which it is concerned. The narrative must then relate to the moment of its creation as much as its historical subject. History presents an historian with the task of producing a dialogue between the past and the present. But as these temporal co-ordinates cannot be fixed, history becomes a continuous interaction between the historian and the past. As such, history can be seen as a process of evaluation whereby the past is always coloured by the intellectual fashions and philosophical concerns of the present. This shifting perspective on the past is matched by the fluid status of the past itself. #Quote by Dana Arnold
Dialogue quotes by Kenneth Lonergan
#151. I still haven't quite caught on to the idea of writing without dialogue. I like writing dialogue, and there's nothing wrong with dialogue in movies. #Quote by Kenneth Lonergan
Dialogue quotes by Lorene Scafaria
#152. I liked to think I had written 'scripts' when I was in high school, but looking back at them, they were about thirty pages of wannabe-Mamet dialogue with a staple through them. #Quote by Lorene Scafaria
Dialogue quotes by John Podesta
#153. So I think it's important to communicate with the people in terms of what the real facts are on these proposals and try to have a discussion and a dialogue that gives people information. I think they're hungry for that rather than just political rhetoric. #Quote by John Podesta
Dialogue quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#154. Phillip is a repository of random snatches of film dialogue and song lyrics. To make room for all of it in his brain, he apparently cleared out all the areas where things like reason and common sense are stored. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Dialogue quotes by Derek Jameson
#155. It's a one-to-one dialogue. You open your mouth and you're talking to 6 million people. #Quote by Derek Jameson
Dialogue quotes by Octavio Paz
#156. At first I couldn't see anything. I fumbled along the cobblestone street. I lit a cigarette. Suddenly the moon appeared from behind a black cloud, lighting a white wall that was crumbled in places. I stopped, blinded by such whiteness. Wind whistled slightly. I breathed the air of the tamarinds. The night hummed, full of leaves and insects. Crickets bivouacked in the tall grass. I raised my head: up there the stars too had set up camp. I thought that the universe was a vast system of signs, a conversation between giant beings. My actions, the cricket's saw, the star's blink, were nothing but pauses and syllables, scattered phrases from that dialogue. What word could it be, of which I was only a syllable? Who speaks the word? To whom is it spoken? I threw my cigarette down on the sidewalk. Falling, it drew a shining curve, shooting out brief sparks like a tiny comet.

I walked a long time, slowly. I felt free, secure between the lips that were at that moment speaking me with such happiness. The night was a garden of eyes. #Quote by Octavio Paz
Dialogue quotes by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
#157. Because Islam, besides coming at the end of the major cycle of revelations, had had an experience of the different religions of the world before modern times. I have always said that Islam is the only religion that had direct contact with nearly all the major families of religions of the world outside of the matrix of modernism. #Quote by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
Dialogue quotes by David Weber
#158. There are two sides to every dialogue, but if you accept the other side's terms without demanding equal time for your own, then they control the debate and its outcome. #Quote by David Weber
Dialogue quotes by Andre Aciman
#159. You never did forgive me, did you?'

'Forgive? There was nothing to forgive. If anything, I'm grateful for everything. I remember good things only.'

I had heard people say this in movies. They seemed to believe it. #Quote by Andre Aciman
Dialogue quotes by Bell Hooks
#160. If I do not speak in a language that can be understood there is little chance for a dialogue. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Dialogue quotes by Franz Werfel
#161. Religion is the everlasting dialogue between humanity and God. Art is its soliloquy. #Quote by Franz Werfel
Dialogue quotes by Sarah Price
#162. Ja, a walk. When two people stand next to each other and their legs move them forward, at which point they can exchange a bit of dialogue and camaraderie? You are familiar with this, ja? #Quote by Sarah Price
Dialogue quotes by Krishna Das
#163. If you stub your toe, you don't need to dialog yourself to be good to your foot, do you? When you see things that clearly, there's no dialogue or emotional manipulation that you need to do to extend compassion to that being, because that being is a part of you, and if that being hurts, you hurt. #Quote by Krishna Das
Dialogue quotes by Philip Schultz
#164. Suddenly, I was reading these comics. I was looking at those bubbles, those dialogue bubbles, and suddenly there were words ... recognizable words. #Quote by Philip Schultz
Dialogue quotes by Mary J. Miller
#165. There were definitely scenes I struggled with more than others: the car accident and the thunderstorm are two that come to mind. It's difficult to write about a thunderstorm. There are only so many ways to describe it and our vocabulary is so limited. And the car accident scene required a tense, manic quality that had to be conveyed in the language, as well as the character's dialogue and actions. I was editing these scenes long after I thought I was finished with them. #Quote by Mary J. Miller
Dialogue quotes by Leslye Headland
#166. I focus on darker things or bad behavior or explicit dialogue because creatively I am more interested in my mistakes and why I made them than my good deeds and my achievements. #Quote by Leslye Headland
Dialogue quotes by Terry Eagleton
#167. If this constant sliding and hiding of meaning were true of conscious life, then we would of course never be able to speak coherently at all. If the whole of language were present to me when I spoke, then I would not be able to articulate anything at all. The ego, or consciousness, can therefore only work by repressing this turbulent activity, provisionally nailing down words on to meanings. Every now and then a word from the unconscious which I do not want insinuates itself into my discourse, and this is the famous Freudian slip of the tongue or parapraxis. But for Lacan all our discourse is in a sense a slip of the tongue: if the process of language is as slippery and ambiguous as he suggests, we can never mean precisely what we say and never say precisely what we mean. Meaning is always in some sense an approximation, a near-miss, a part-failure, mixing non-sense and non-communication into sense and dialogue. #Quote by Terry Eagleton
Dialogue quotes by George Kohlrieser
#168. A hallmark of high performance leaders is the ability to influence others through all levels and types of communication, from simple interactions to difficult conversations and more complex conflicts, in order to achieve greater team and organizational alignment. High performing leaders are able to unite diverse team members by building common goals and even shared emotions by engaging in powerful and effective dialogue. #Quote by George Kohlrieser
Dialogue quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#169. When there is complete peace of mind when the outer world is chaotic you will truly be free. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Dialogue quotes by Tommy Lee Jones
#170. You can't instruct an audience to laugh, but what you can do is read well and understand the spirit and subtleties, if there are any, in the dialogue. #Quote by Tommy Lee Jones
Dialogue quotes by Grace Llewellyn
#171. Teach your children to listen carefully and to speak thoughtfully. The best way to teach this is to listen carefully and speak thoughtfully to your children, from the time they are babies. Take their questions and ideas seriously ... learning to speak and listen as if our words matter is fundamental to education. Dialogue is not the same as mindless chatter. Above all, listen, listen, and listen to your kids. #Quote by Grace Llewellyn
Dialogue quotes by Elaine Seiler
#172. My challenge to you today is to observe your thoughts and internal dialogue and recognize if and when you speak poorly to yourself. We all have moments of self-deprecation and very often we are too hard on ourselves. Today, start to be caring and supportive of yourself. Observe that little voice in your head and say something positive to yourself instead! #Quote by Elaine Seiler
Dialogue quotes by George Lucas
#173. I think that Lethal Weapon-style dialogue is overused, it's a necessary aspect of high action films where you have to have the smart retort. You have to say "I'll be back baby" and stuff. It's not my style. #Quote by George Lucas
Dialogue quotes by C.C. Hunter
#174. How was it Holiday put it? Just because crap pops in here- Holiday had tapped her temple-doesn't mean crap has to pop out here. She had touched her lips. The camp leader had also said that supernatural scientists were considering doing medical research to prove vampires were missing the thingamajig that filtered out inappropriate dialogue. Della wasn't sure if Holiday was joking or not. #Quote by C.C. Hunter
Dialogue quotes by John Durham Peters
#175. Open scatter is more fundamental than coupled sharing; it is the stuff from which, on splendid occasions, dialogue may arise. #Quote by John Durham Peters
Dialogue quotes by Trace Adkins
#176. When I'm singing a song on stage, I hate hypocrites. If you don't put yourself in that lyric and emote and be what that lyric says that you are, then you're just going through the motions and you're being hypocritical. I just take that same approach with acting. I just take the dialogue and I emote it and become that. I use the same technic. #Quote by Trace Adkins
Dialogue quotes by Charles M. Murphy

Dialogue quotes by Helmut Thielicke
#179. A theological thought can breathe only in the atmosphere of dialogue with God. #Quote by Helmut Thielicke
Dialogue quotes by Christopher Plummer
#180. Theater roles are written by the great masters. The greatest literature that you can possibly know are the theater roles like King Lear, Hamlet, and all of those great roles. So all you do is you dive into these unchallenged roles and see how far you can get, what kind of accolades you can get, and how good you can be in them. In movie roles, you can actually improve them by knowing a lot about your own stage technique, which helps a great deal in the cinema and how you can project inner humor even though the particular dialogue is not necessarily funny, but you can infuse it with humor. #Quote by Christopher Plummer
Dialogue quotes by John Oliver
#181. People really have come for a dialogue when they go to a stand-up show in the U.K. They say, 'I understand that you have now finished your little comedy monologue; now I have something to say regarding what I've just heard. #Quote by John Oliver
Dialogue quotes by Nelson Mandela
#182. Our efforts to counter hatred, intolerance, and indifference must continue simultaneously at individual and structural levels. We must try to influence for good the minds and hearts of individual people through dialogue and confidence building. These efforts must be reinforced by our efforts to create just structures in society to support the ongoing work of negotiations in the human community. Only then will we have a chance to negate the terrible consequences of the tremendous conflicts facing humankind today. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Dialogue quotes by Henry Kimsey-House
#183. It is only through dialogue, deep listening, and passionate disagreement that we find our way to something larger than a singular and isolated point of view. #Quote by Henry Kimsey-House
Dialogue quotes by Aaron Sorkin
#184. The properties of people and the properties of character have almost nothing to do with each other. They really don't. I know it seems like they do because we look alike, but people don't speak in dialogue. Their lives don't unfold in a series of scenes that form a narrative arc. #Quote by Aaron Sorkin
Dialogue quotes by Garth Ennis
#185. Howard Chaykin was one of the few who dared to make mainstream comics different back in the eighties; it was guys like him, Alan Moore and Frank Miller who made sure there'd be no going back. Howard's work on The Shadow is amongst his very best: razor-sharp character work, sizzling dialogue and an unsurpassed sense of layout and design. #Quote by Garth Ennis
Dialogue quotes by Robert McKee
#186. Quality storytelling inspires quality dialogue. #Quote by Robert McKee
Dialogue quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#187. Of course in the present situation the Communists have to use various disguises. Sometimes we hear words like "popular front," at other times "dialogue with Christianity." For Communists a dialogue with Christianity! In the Soviet Union this dialogue was a simple matter: they used machine guns and revolvers. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Dialogue quotes by A.A. Milne
#188. And now, what about a Watson? Are we to have a Watson? We are. Death to an author who keeps his unravelling for the last chapter, making all the other chapters but prologue to a five-minute drama. This is no way to write a story. Let us know from chapter to chapter what the detective is thinking. For this he must watsonize or soliloquize; the one is merely a dialogue form of the other, and, by that, more readable. A Watson, then, but not of necessity a fool of a Watson. A little slow, let him be, as so many of us are, but friendly, human, likeable ... #Quote by A.A. Milne
Dialogue quotes by Steve McQueen
#189. I have difficulty putting words in peoples' mouths. The best dialogue is very, very thin dialogue; you let people improvise and then basically you record what they've improvised and then write it down. #Quote by Steve McQueen
Dialogue quotes by Derek Luke
#190. I get to be in movies where it's mostly dialogue, and I want to be in something, that for me, feels like kickboxing. #Quote by Derek Luke
Dialogue quotes by Marion Woodman
#191. If we fail to nourish our souls, they wither, and without soul, life ceases to have meaning ... The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul. And creativity is what makes life worth living. #Quote by Marion Woodman
Dialogue quotes by Ryszard Legutko
#192. But it does not require much effort to see that the dialogue in liberal democracy is of a peculiar kind because its aim is to maintain the domination of the mainstream and not to undermine it. A deliberation is believed to make sense only if the mainstream orthodoxy is sure to win politically. Today's 'dialogue' politics are a pure form of the right-is-might politics, cleverly concealed by the ostentatiously vacuous rhetoric of all-inclusiveness. #Quote by Ryszard Legutko
Dialogue quotes by Chellie Pingree
#193. Like many older D.C. organizations, Common Cause has had to come a long way both in its use of the Internet and its understanding of the great value of engaging people in a broader online dialogue. #Quote by Chellie Pingree
Dialogue quotes by Walter Kaylin
#194. I'm asking about the kid," Root said. "What does she get out of it?"
"My fist in her ear if she asks as many questions as you do," Pennant said. "You worry too much. Well, what do you say, Sultan? #Quote by Walter Kaylin
Dialogue quotes by Valentino Rossi
#195. The most important thing is to have a good relationship with the bike ... you have to understand what she wants. I think of a motorcycle as a woman, and I know that sounds silly, but it's true. #Quote by Valentino Rossi
Dialogue quotes by Nikki Rowe
#196. Our souls gravitate toward the things meant for us,
and everything that is meant for us isn't necessarily pretty, but whatever we are pulled toward is necessary for our growth. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Dialogue quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#197. I founded the King Hussein Foundation after my husband's death in 1999, to build on his humanitarian vision and legacy in the country and abroad, through programs promoting education and leadership, economic empowerment, tolerance, cross-cultural dialogue, and media that enhances mutual understanding and respect among different cultures across conflict lines. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Dialogue quotes by Frank Carlucci
#198. Of course, China is a key to the North Korea if we're going to solve that riddle, but they could also be helpful on Iraq, which is why it's important that we maintain a constructive dialogue with China. #Quote by Frank Carlucci
Dialogue quotes by Gilles Peress
#199. We are entering into an age in which visual language is defined by a dialogue between photographers and audiences. This means not just the democratic posting of images but the democratic interpretation of images. #Quote by Gilles Peress
Dialogue quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#200. Deprived of all forms of memory, people would act only to satiate the immediacy of their base cravings. Without past memories acting as guidepost, humankind's dynamics diminish to the entropy of commission and reaction. The desire to achieve lastingness would be frivolous without appreciation of our joint history. In absence of historical awareness, there could be no culture dialogue or community inwardness. Absent historical awareness, there would be no evolving community consciousness and there would be no social engine capable of generating any communities' battery of self-determinacy. Self-improvement would be frivolous without forging an intimate relationship with our historiology as well as familiarity with the account of select people's exhibited character traits that we might wish to emulate. Notions of personal pliancy and individual lability would lose its root structure without the prongs of memory to provide the necessary griddle and supporting trusses to configure and provide cohesion for our developing sense of selfhood. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
