NaBloPoMo November 1 Tell us your favourite quotation and why.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion it has taken place

George Bernard Shaw

This quote ends all my email messages at work. Work email is where messages can be promoted to help a project move forward, but also be misinterpreted and cause rifts in team building. I pride myself in speaking the truth and keeping communication lines open.

George Bernard Shaw quotes in his ironic wit would be called "Shavian" notations. He used them to characterize observations. He spoke the truth in such a way that you heard the truth.

 "My way of joking is to tell the truth. It's the funniest joke in the world." GBS

I like that.
