understanding

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on business, courage, justice, people, time, trust, understanding, world, and writers

My business is to be talented, that is, to be capable of selecting the important moments from the trivial ones. . . . It's about time for writers - particularly those who are genuine artists - to recognize that in this world you cannot figure out everything. Just have a writer who the crowds trust be courageous enough and declare that he does not understand everything, and that alone will represent a major contribution to the way people think, a long leap forward.

A Quote by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov on art, clarity, decisions, thought, time, understanding, world, and writers

It is time for writers to admit that nothing in this world makes sense. Only fools and charlatans think they know and understand everything. The stupider they are, the wider they conceive their horizons to be. And if an artist decides to declare that he understands nothing of what he sees - this in itself constitutes a considerable clarity in the realm of thought, and a great step forward.

Grown ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.

A Quote by Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins on experience, learning, life, understanding, and wisdom

In the deep, unwritten wisdom of life there are many things to be learned that cannot be taught. We never know them by hearing them spoken, but we grow into them by experience and recognize them through understanding. Understanding is a great experience in itself, but it does not come through instruction.

A Quote by Anouk Aimee on understanding

The more the years go by, the less I know. But if you give explanations and understand everything, then nothing can happen.

A Quote by Ann Landers on compromise, confidence, contentment, day, friendship, future, goals, good, hope, life, love, past, perfection, problems, quiet, sharing, present, and understanding

Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyaltly through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses. Love is content with the present, it hopes for the future, and it does not brood over the past. It's the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small disappointments, big victories and working toward common goals. If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things that are missing. If you don't have love in your life, no matter what else there is, it's not enough.

Ann Landers (1918 -)

Technology is dominated by two types of people: those who understand what they do not manage, and those who manage what they do not understand.
