It is, in short, the essential human connection.

    Edward Gibbon
  • Of all the alchemies of human connection-sex and childbirth and marriage and friendship-the strangest is this: You can stand up and tell a story that is made entirely, embarrassingly, of “I’s,” and a listening audience somehow turns each “I” into a “me.” This alchemy, of self-absorption into shared experience, is the alchemy of all literature.

    Tom DeLonge
  • As a young lawyer, I learned to try to find common ground with people, to look for a human connection. When I got to the Senate, despite the fact that there were a lot of people who didn’t want me to get there – and were sure they’d never even talk to me, let alone work with me – I really tried to do the job I was sent there to do by the people of New York, which was to get things done for my constituents. I worked with Republicans, and we found a lot of common ground. It isn’t easy, but it’s part of what we have to do in politics today.

    Hillary Clinton
  • That movie was my girlfriend. That was my girl.” I knew there was going to be initial anger. As a matter of fact, when I was deciding to do Footloose that was one of the first things that I had to realize.

  • If I had a worldview, and I don’t know if I do, but if I did, it’s one that’s intensely humanistic. [That worldview] is that the only thing that matters is family and personal connection, and that’s the only thing that gives life meaning. Religion and gods and beliefs – for me, it all comes down to your brother. And your brother might be the brother in your family, or it might be the guy next to you in the foxhole, it’s about human connections.

    Eric Kripke
  • Tech is all about building human connections.

    Padmasree Warrior

    Aisha Hinds
