Understand

Famous quotes containing the word understand:

    “But it’s nonsense to think he’d care enough.”
    “You mean you couldn’t understand his caring.
    Oh, but you see he hadn’t had enough....”
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Oh, that I knew where I might find him, that I might come even to his dwelling! I would lay my case before him, and fill my mouth with arguments. I would learn what he would answer me, and understand what he would say to me. Would he contend with me in the greatness of his power? No; but he would give heed to me. There an upright person could reason with him, and I should be acquitted forever by my judge.
    Bible: Hebrew, Job 23:3-7.

    Job, of God.

    What one doesn’t understand one doesn’t possess.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)
