29 Understanding Quotes to help you Understand (wait, what?!)

Let me tell you something you might not want to hear... You might not completely understand things immediately. You know why? It's because your brain is processing about a bazillion inputs at any one time (it keeps you alive autonomically as well as dealing with all our thoughts and actions) and it's impossible for it to filter and process ALL the communication clues instantly. Sometimes, and I'm going to be revolutionary here, we'll need some TIME to assimilate, conjugate and reflect on things, before we can understand. A wise man (Steven Covey) once said - Seek first to understand, before you try to be understood. In other words, work on your listening skills and thinking skills before you start pushing your own agenda.

Let these Understanding Quotes encourage you to understand more intuitively. Let them help you weigh the importance of understanding others and understanding yourself. I hope you keep your curiosity alive and question the things that you don't understand today. As Walt Disney once said, 'Ideas come from curiosity'. So enjoy these Quotes; I hope they help you to become more curious and to help you invest more time in truly understanding our world.
