    Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Logic: The art of thinking and reasoning in strict accordance with the limitations and incapacities of the human misunderstanding. Ambrose Bierce

    In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when silence is not understood. Henry David Thoreau

    We are infected by our own misunderstanding of how our own minds work. Kevin Kelly

    To be misunderstood can be the writer's punishment for having disturbed the reader's peace. The greater the disturbance, the greater the possibility of misunderstanding. Anatole Broyard


    Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
    Albert Schweitzer

    Is an intelligent human being likely to be much more than a large-scale manufacturer of misunderstanding?
    Philip Roth

    A number of scientists with greatly different backgrounds can come up with completely different assessments. The discussions or controversies are endless. Once a year, we try to bring the most important discoverers together to exchange their experiences and knowledge.
    Richard Leakey

    By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
    Confucius

    Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd have preferred to talk.
    Doug Larson

    Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.
    Doug Larson

    People are pretty much alike. It's only that our differences are more susceptible to definition than our similarities.
    Linda Ellerbee

    Don't be in a hurry to condemn because he doesn't do what you do or think as you think or as fast. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today.
    Malcolm X

    ~ It is understanding that gives us an ability to have peace. When we understand the other fellow's viewpoint, and he understands ours, then we can sit down and work out our differences. ~
    Harry S. Truman

    ~ Life is the first gift, love is the second, and understanding the third ~
    Marge Piercy

    ~ To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to. ~
    Kahlil Gibran

    ~ The one who understands does not speak; the one who speaks does not understand ~
    Chinese Proverb

    ~ Understanding is a two-way street. ~
    Eleanor Roosevelt

    We can rarely see things from the point of view of another person because we look at the facts through the screen of an impression or an interest which distorts our view; and then there are accusations, quarrels and misunderstanding.
