Understanding

Winifred Holtby:

The crown of life is neither happiness nor annihilation; it is understanding.

Emma Goldman:

The motto should not be:

Forgive one another; rather, Understand one another.

Frances Cornford:

More piercing, more unbearable than blame / Is to be understood.

Gwen Bristow:

Nothing’s easier than believing we understand experiences we’ve never had.

L.E. Landon:

Whatever people in general do not understand, they are always prepared to dislike; the incomprehensible is always the obnoxious.

Isak Dinesen:

It is not a bad thing in a tale that you understand only half of it.

Jean Kerr:

If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs, it’s just possible you haven’t grasped the situation.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh:

People don’t want to be understood – I mean not completely. It’s too destructive. Then they haven’t anything left. They don’t want complete sympathy or complete understanding. They want to be treated carelessly and taken for granted lots of times.

Barbara Joye:

How we each deal with stress and stressful times
defines the quality of our lives and our life experience.
