Dorothy Sarnoff

  • Make sure you have finished speaking before your audience has finished listening.

  • Good conversation can leave you more exhilarated than alcohol; more refreshed than the theater or a concert. It can bring you entertainment and pleasure; it can help you get ahead, solve problems, spark the imagination of others. It can increase your knowledge and education. It can erase misunderstandings, and bring you closer to those you love.

  • ... the more thoughtful you are of others, the more thoughtful they will be of you. The more you respect them, the more you will win their respect.

  • One difference between a conviction and a prejudice is that a conviction can be explained without getting angry.

  • A good rule for discussion is to use hard facts and a soft voice.

  • Shyness is I-ness. Shyness is really wondering if you have other people's approval.

Dorothy Sarnoff, U.S. opera singer, musical theater actor, self-help guru

(1914 - 2008)
