understanding


Random quote of the day:

“[Age] makes you more aware of other people’s lives. You see more from the inside: the troubles, the sorrow, and the unfairness. And then when you accept that life is good, no matter how unlucky you are, you get a firmer insight into it.”

—William Maxwell, The Paris Review, Fall 1982, No. 85

Random quote of the day:

“The how implies that somebody is going to give you a method, a recipe, which, if you practice it, will bring about understanding. Can understanding ever come about through a method? Understanding means love and the sanity of the mind. And love cannot be practiced or taught. The sanity of the mind can only come about when there is clear perception, seeing things as they are unemotionally, not sentimentally. Neither of these two things can be taught by another, nor by a system invented by yourself or another.”

—J. Krishnamurti, “How To Live In This World,” The Urgency of Change
