block each other from expressing their opinions
do so because they have so little confidence
in their own. To me, encountering an opposing

got to let people speak and youve
got to listen. And thats what the
first amendment is all about. Thats
what really distinguishes this country from

No, there's no God, but there might be some

loss, you're probably more open to understanding
it and more comfortable talking about it

The world reacts very strangely to people
they see on TV, and I can begin to understand
how anchor monsters are made. If you're
not careful, you can become used to being
treated as though you're special and begin
to expect it. For a reporter, that's the
kiss of death.
Cooper - Understanding
I am against religion because it teaches
us to be satisfied with not understanding
Dawkins - Religion
I doubt that religion can survive deep understanding.
The shallows are its natural habitat. Cranks
and fundamentalists are too often victimised
as scapegoats for religion in general. It
is only quite recently that Christianity
reinvented itself in non-fundamentalist
guise, and Islam has yet to do so.
Dawkins - Religion

the customer so well the product or service
fits him and sells itself.

who refuses to bow blindly to conventional
prejudices and chooses instead to express
his opinions courageously and honestly.
Einstein - True
Life is a succession of lessons which must
be lived to be understood.
Waldo Emerson - Learning
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys
on a minor planet of a very average star.
But we can understand the Universe. That
makes us something very special.
Hawking - Intelligent
Race - Universe
What I have done is to show that it is possible
for the way the universe began to be determined
by the laws of science. In that case, it
would not be necessary to appeal to God
to decide how the universe began. This doesn't
prove that there is no God, only that God
is not necessary.
Hawking - Understanding
We are a company that lives and breathes
a philosophy thats centered on not
only making sound business decisions but
also personally and professionally finding
ways to contribute to the well being of
society. We are also a company that understands
Johnson - Community
Everything that irritates us about others
can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Jung - Self
We should not pretend to understand the
world only by the intellect; we apprehend
it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the
judgment of the intellect is, at best, only
the half of truth, and must, if it be honest,
also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.
Jung - Understanding
Power properly understood is nothing but
the ability to achieve purpose. It is the
strength required to bring about social,
political and economic change.
Luther King Jr - Power
When you travel as secretary, one problem
you have is that the press comes with you
and wants an immediate result because it
justifies their trip. And sometimes the
best result is that you don't try to get
a result but try to get an understanding
for the next time you go to them.
Kissinger - Geopolitics
Beginning today, treat everyone you meet
as if they were going to be dead by midnight.

understanding you can muster, and do it
with no thought of any reward. Your life
will never be the same again.
Mandino - Dead

solutions, which makes you a more informed

Proverbs - Learning
I think that the best hope for peace and
prosperity in the world is greater cooperation
among nations, which in turn will be produced
if both our governments and the people of
our countries travel more and get to know
each other better.

What we now want most is closer contact
and better understanding between individuals
and communities all over the earth and the
elimination of that fanatic devotion to
exalted ideals of national egoism and pride,
which is always prone to plunge the world
into primeval barbarism and strife. No league
or parliamentary act of any kind will ever
prevent such a calamity. These are only
new devices for putting the weak at the
mercy of the strong.
Tesla - Community
Leaders are made, not born. You learn to
become a leader by doing what other excellent
leaders have done before you. You become
proficient in your job or skill, and then
you become proficient at understanding the
motivations and behaviors of other people.
Tracy - Learning
If words of command are not clear and distinct,
if orders are not thoroughly understood,
the general is to blame. But if his orders
