Body language matters!!

Body language was there even before speech was invented.It is the most natural form of communication that any living being might possess.Even plants and animals communicate via their body language.There are sometimes subtle – and sometimes not so subtle – movements, gestures, facial expressions and even shifts in our whole bodies that indicate something is going on. The way we talk, walk, sit and stand all say something about us, and whatever is happening on the inside can be reflected on the outside.There are times when we say something but our body says something else.So why not have a look at some quotes which stress on the need of being aware of what you communicate (almost unconsciously) to others?

The amazing effect that your body language can have on your communication can be aptly described by the following quotes:
  • The body says what words cannot.--Martha Graham

  • I can't just tell the guys I want the ball, I have to do it with my body language. - LaMarcus Aldridge(Basketball player)

  • What you do speaks so loud that I cannot hear what you say--Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • Electric communication will never be a substitute for the face of someone who with their soul encourages another person to be brave and true. -- Charles Dickens

  • Body language is a very powerful tool. We had body language before we had speech, and apparently, 80% of what you understand in a conversation is read through the body, not the words. -- Deborah Bull

  • Get in touch with the way the other person feels. Feelings are 55% body language, 38% tone and 7% words. -- Unknown

  • I speak two languages, Body and English.-- Mae West

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

  • Our non-verbals govern how other people think and feel about us.--Amy Cuddy

  • The body never lies. - Martha Graham
