Understanding quotes
Understanding
A first sign of the beginning of understanding is the wish to die.

- Kafka, Franz
Everybody experiences far more than he understands. Yet it is experience, rather than understanding, that influences behavior.

- Mcluhan, Marshall
Words do two major things: They provide food for the mind and create light for understanding and awareness.

- Rohn, Jim
To label me an intellectual is a misunderstanding of what that is.

- Cavett, Dick
Art is a private thing, the artist makes it for himself; a comprehensible work is the product of a journalist. We need works that are strong, straight, precise, and forever beyond understanding.

- Tzara, Tristan
LOGIC, n. The art of thinking and reasoning in strict accordance with the limitations and incapacities of the human misunderstanding. The basic of logic is the syllogism, consisting of a major and a minor premise and a conclusion -- thus: _Major Premise_: Sixty men can do a piece of work sixty times as quickly as one man. _Minor Premise_: One man can dig a posthole in sixty seconds; therefore -- _Conclusion_: Sixty men can dig a posthole in one second. This may be called the syllogism arithmetical, in which, by combining logic and mathematics, we obtain a double certainty and are twice blessed.

- Ambrose Bierce
The proper basis for marriage is a mutual misunderstanding.

- Oscar Wilde
Live this day as if it will be your last. Remember that you will only find tomorrow on the calendars of fools. Forget yesterday's defeats and ignore the problems of tomorrow. This is it. Doomsday. All you have. Make it the best day of your year. The saddest words you can ever utter are, If I had my life to live over again. Take the baton, now. Run with it! This is your day! Beginning today, treat everyone you meet, friend or foe, loved one or stranger, as if they were going to be dead at midnight. Extend to each person, no matter how trivial the contact, all the care and kindness and understanding and love that you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

- Mandino, Og
MAGNITUDE, n. Size. Magnitude being purely relative, nothing is large and nothing small. If everything in the universe were increased in bulk one thousand diameters nothing would be any larger than it was before, but if one thing remain unchanged all the others would be larger than they had been. To an understanding familiar with the relativity of magnitude and distance the spaces and masses of the astronomer would be no more impressive than those of the microscopist. For anything we know to the contrary, the visible universe may be a small part of an atom, with its component ions, floating in the life- fluid (luminiferous ether) of some animal. Possibly the wee creatures peopling the corpuscles of our own blood are overcome with the proper emotion when contemplating the unthinkable distance from one of these to another.

- Ambrose Bierce
When a scientist is ahead of his times, it is often through misunderstanding of current, rather than intuition of future truth. In science there is never any error so gross that it won't one day, from some perspective, appear prophetic.

- Rostand, Jean
A man of understanding has lost nothing, if he has himself.

- Michel de Montaigne
The inspiration of the almighty gives man understanding.

- Bible
Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We never understand what we're praying; and God, in His mercy, does not answer our prayers according to our understanding, but according to His wisdom.

- Rich Mullins
Wisdom is your perspective on life, your sense of balance, your understanding of how the various parts and principles apply and relate to each other. It embraces judgment, discernment, comprehension. It is a gestalt or oneness, and integrated wholeness.

- Covey, Stephen R.
We can gain no lasting peace if we approach it with suspicion and mistrust or with fear. We can gain it only if we proceed with the understanding, the confidence, and the courage which flow from conviction.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt
The purpose of a man's heart are deep waters, but a man of understanding draws them out. [Proverbs 20:5]

- Bible
Is it possible, finally, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another? We can invest enormous time and energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close are we able to come to that person's essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other peron well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?

- Haruki Murakami
Better to understand a little than to misunderstand a lot.

By lack of understanding they remained insane.

- George Orwell
