Conversation quotes
Conversation
Silence is one of the great arts of conversation, as allowed by Cicero himself, who says,'there is not only an art, but an eloquence in it.'A well bred woman may easily and effectually promote the most useful and elegant conversation without speaking a word. The modes of speech are scarcely more variable than the modes of silence.

- Tom Blair

- Deborah Tannen

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
There's a certain kind of conversation you have from time to time at parties in New York about a new book. The word "banal" sometimes rears its by-now banal head; you say "underedited," I say "derivative." The conversation goes around and around various literary criticisms, and by the time it moves on one thing is clear: No one read the book; we just read the reviews.

- Anna Quindlen
An expert gossiper knows how much to leave out of a conversation.

Inject a few raisins of conversation into the tasteless dough of life.

- O. Henry

- Johnson, Samuel
The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others. He who leaves your company pleased with himself and his own cleverness is perfectly well pleased with you.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
What a delightful thing is the conversation of specialists! One understands absolutely nothing and it's charming.

- Degas, Edgar
A gossip is one who talks to you about others; a bore is one who talks to you about himself; and a brilliant conversationalist is one who talks to you about yourself.

Conversation should touch everything, but should concentrate itself on nothing.

- Wilde, Oscar
