That seemingly “mindless” communication occurs frequently comes as no surprise to even the casual observer of human interaction. ~ Judee Burgoon et al

Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools, because they have to say something. ~ Plato
▫ Humans commonly practice deception. Oddly, considering how frequent deception is, people are not very good at detecting it; hence, trust lingers where it should not.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters. ~ Albert Einstein
We are never deceived; we deceive ourselves. ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
