212 Connection Quotes That Teach You How To Make And Use Them

Connection

Meaningful connections happen when we genuinely share about ourselves. We open up to others and that brings us closer. Connections are like energy. They are there pulling and bringing you closer but you cannot see them, only feel them.

Sometimes you will not be able to explain a connection you have with someone or something. It just happens. You feel drawn to them for no reason and now you want to know more about them. You may feel a certain responsibility towards them, to keep them safe and know how they are doing.

Connections create friendships and relationships. They form strong bonds between humans and pets too. You could also have business or official connections that make you obligated to do something for someone.

Some connections are formed through other people. It could be through a marriage, work, or a particular deal. Connections are important and helpful in many instances. They are vital links that favor you in certain situations. You could get a job, meet someone important, or get something just because of a connection.

That's why it's good to know people. It's also important to keep the connections you already have in healthy shape. Communication is one way to keep connections strong. You can communicate through calls, messages, or virtual meetings.

You can also keep in touch by knowing what the other is up to by sharing important things and major events online or offline. You could keep up through social media too. You can also plan physical meet-ups, get togethers, or parties.

Connections require effort from both parties to be able to stay strong. Whether you are related, work together, or just know each other, connections are important. Here is a collection of connection quotes to help you keep up with your connections and reach out if necessary!

I think that's the challenge of our generation: if we are all technology natives, how do we live with influence both online and off, and how do we make sure that both of those aren't lacking in some type of deeper human connection and substance?

Just checking up on someone with a, 'Hey, how are you doing?' usually means the most to someone.

Life's just one great journey. It's a road we travel as we go from point A to point B. What makes that journey worthwhile is the people we choose to travel with, the people we hold close as we take steps into the darkness and blindly make our way through life. They're the people who matter.

I can remember starving in a small room in a strange city shades pulled down, listening to classical music I was young I was so young it hurt like a knife inside because there was no alternative except to hide as long as possible - not in self-pity but with dismay at my limited chance: trying to connect. the old composers - Mozart, Bach, Beethoven, Brahms were the only ones who spoke to me and they were dead. finally, starved and beaten, I had to go into the streets to be interviewd for low-paying and monotonous jobs by strange men behind desks men without eyes men without faces who would take my hours break them piss on them. now I work for the editors the readers the critics but still hang around and drink with Mozart, Bach, Brahms and the Bee some buddies some men sometimes all we need to be able to continue alone are the dead rattling the walls that close us in.

I used to say I live my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that's why we were brothers - because you did too. No matter where you are, whether it's a quarter mile away or half way across the world, you'll always be with me. And you'll always be my brother.

Listen. If you don’t take it, I’m throwing it down the drain. I don’t want it and I don’t need it. But I could do with a few laughs. We could all do with a few laughs. I’ve got a feeling we’re going to need them more than usual before long.

And you held onto that memory, treasured it all these years later. Thank you for that. You were lost and I saved you. I can’t tell you how much that meant. I’ve been told for so long that I was useless. But that day, for the first time, I felt what it was like to be needed. I don’t think that there is any way that you could know how deeply that chance encounter affected me. You share it all: your kindness, your warmth, your irrepressible joy. You don’t hold back any of them.

Actually, I don’t care “how many” people would notice if I disappeared. If just “one person” noticed, that’s all I’d need. Having “one person” is an incredible thing. After all, it’s totally different than “zero.” I was happy then too. I was so happy, it was almost embarrassing. Out of all the people, she found me. Me alone. And now too, someone other than myself is thinking about me. She’s looking for me. That’s not something I’ll ever take for granted.

on the continent I'm soft. I dream too. I let myself dream. I dream of being famous. I dream of walking the streets of London and Paris. I dream of sitting in cafes drinking fine wines and taking a taxi back to a good hotel. I dream of meeting beautiful ladies in the hall and turning them away because I have a sonnet in mind that I want to write before sunrise. at sunrise I will be asleep and there will be a strange cat curled up on the windowsill. I think we all feel like this now and then. I'd even like to visit Andernach, Germany, the place where I began, then I'd like to fly on to Moscow to check out their mass transit system so I'd have something faintly lewd to whisper into the ear of the mayor of Los Angeles upon to my return to this fucking place. it could happen. I'm ready. I've watched snails crawl over ten foot walls and vanish. you mustn't confuse this with ambition. I would be able to laugh at my good turn of the cards - and I won't forget you. I'll send postcards and snapshots, and the finished sonnet.

a gold pocket watch my grandfather was a tall German with a strange smell on his breath. he stood very straight in front of his small house and his wife hated him and his children thought him odd. I was six the first time we met and he gave me all his war medals. the second time I met him he gave me his gold pocket watch. it was very heavy and I took it home and wound it very tight and it stopped running which made me feel bad. I never saw him again and my parents never spoke of him nor did my grandmother who had long ago stopped living with him. once I asked about him and they told me he drank too much but I liked him best standing very straight in front of his house and saying "hello, Henry, you and I, we know each other."

My laughter was all there inside of me waiting to roar out: HAHAHAHAHA, o my god o my HAHAHAHA. It felt so good when it happened. Dee Dee knew something about life. Dee Dee knew that what happened to one happened to most of us. Our lives were not so different — even though we liked to think so.

But just like that...just like that, you melt the ugly emotions inside me, and the muddied anxiety, bit by bit. Why would somebody like you be with me? Why would you cry for me? How could I even ask for that? I sure as hell don't have the right. And yet, this time, I find myself thinking I wanna take care of you, and that I don't wanna leave you. I'm wishing for it.

I won’t get to hear you say, “Welcome home,” to me anymore, will I, Honda-san? But…but I’m happy for you too. The “me” who’s arrived at this point is happy for you. I…I was always…so weak. I wasn’t good at making connections with other people, but I wanted to be loved. I wanted to be needed. I yearned for those things…and then, one day, you came into my life. You made those dreams come true. You granted my wishes without asking for anything in return. You gave me so much. And it’s because of that that I can stand in front of you here today. You helped me become a full-fledged “human being.” You helped me grow as a person. You…were like a mother to me. I was finally able to tell you that. I know my true feelings are a little on the embarrassing side…but, you know, it’s the same for them too, I think. Your presence is so warm and kind…so even though we’re all going our separate ways now, starting new lives in new places, every so often, we’ll still think of you. “Is she doing well? She’s not crying, is she? Is she smiling even now? Is she happy today too?” That’s how we’ll always think of you. Thank you…I’m so glad I met you. I’m so glad you were here... Thank you, thank you, thank you... Tohru.

She’s not crying, is she? Is she smiling even now? Is she happy today too?” That’s how we’ll always think of you. Thank you…I’m so glad I met you. I’m so glad you were here… Thank you, thank you, thank you… Tohru.

Yeah…I believe you. Hey. If the snow keeps piling up like this, how about we go make footprints in the snow together? It’s a promise...

I was not religious, but I liked rituals. I liked the idea of connecting an action with remembering. In China, the Old Man had told us, there are days reserved for grave cleaning, where you make gifts to the dead. And I imagined that Alaska would want a smoke, and so it seemed to me that the Colonel had begun an excellent ritual.

You've got a lifetime to mull over the Buddhist understanding of interconnectedness. But while you were looking out the window, you missed the chance to explore the equally interesting Buddhist belief in being present for every facet of your daily life, of being truly present.

All the borders in the world are man-made. There are no borders, we are all hooked together. Everything is connected. There is no line of demarcation. We are hooked together like the colors of a rainbow, our problem is ignorance, we don't understand that.

Prayer lays hold of God's plan and becomes the link between His will and its accomplishment on earth. Amazing things happen, and we are given the privilege of being the channels of the Holy Spirit's prayer.

There’s something special about the barbershop. It’s a space where conversations and connections happen, where stories are shared over hot towels and cold cuts. Barber culture is something to celebrate and I want to capture that feeling in my.

With everything going on in my life—going on in my head—I wanted to talk with you. Really talk. Just once. A chance we never seemed to get at school. Or at work. A chance to ask, Who are you?' We didn’t get that chance because I was afraid. Afraid that I had no chance with you. That’s what I thought. And I was fine with that.
