Understanding Quotes A-Z by Author Understanding Quotes A-Z by Author

An amazing thing, the human brain. Capable of understanding incredibly complex and intricate concepts. Yet at times unable to recognize the obvious and simple.
Jay Abraham - Knowledge - Ideas


I’ve always wondered if people who block each other from expressing their opinions do so because they have so little confidence in their own. To me, encountering an opposing point of view is a chance to gain a deeper understanding of the issues at stake and develop my own point of view. But the first thing you’ve got to do is you’ve got to let people speak and you’ve got to listen. And that’s what the first amendment is all about. That’s what really distinguishes this country from others.
Michael Bloomberg - Freedom of Speech - Opinions - Pessimism - Understanding - Listening - America - Constitution

One has to understand what the enemy is all about: the enemy's history, the enemy's culture, the enemy's aspirations. If you understand these well, you can perhaps move towards peace.

Wide diversification is only required when investors do not understand what they are doing.
Warren Buffett - Stock Market - Investing

No, there's no God, but there might be some sort of an organizing intelligence, and I think to understand it is way beyond our ability. It's certainly not a judgmental entity. It's certainly not paternalistic and all these qualities that have been attributed to God.
George Carlin - God - Intelligent - Understanding - Judgmental

Smart people instinctively understand the dangers of entrusting our future to self-serving leaders who use our institutions.. whether in the corporate or social sectors.. to advance their own interests.

Anderson Cooper - Loss - Knowledge - Experience - Understanding

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.
Anderson Cooper - Understanding - Famous - Power - News


I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Teaching - Understanding - Satisfaction
- World

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.
Richard Dawkins - Religion - Christianity - Islam - Belief - Understanding - Survival

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.
Stephen Hawking - Intelligent - Understanding - Human Race - Universe
- Space

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.
Stephen Hawking - Understanding - Universe - Possible - Science - God - Laws

Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
Carl Jung - Self Awareness
- Irritated - Understanding

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.
Carl Jung - Understanding - Intelligent - Feelings - Judgment - Truth - Honesty


Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political and economic change.

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.
Henry Kissinger - Geopolitics - Problem - Politicians - Press - News - Meeting - Understanding

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.

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.
Nikola Tesla - Community - Life - Earth
- Understanding - Ego - Pride - Ideals - Patriotic - Manipulation
