How I wish I could walk through the doors of my mind;
Hold memory close at hand,
Help me understand the years.
How I wish I could choose between Heaven and Hell.

James Blunt

Now that I`m a parent, I understand why my father was in a bad mood a lot.

Adam Sandler

Uninformed strong opinions - and I particularly include religious ones, which for some reason get special treatment - are of course mere clusters of prejudices and no more appropriate than mine, yours or anyone else`s are on topics we don`t understand.

Derren Brown

Religion has never once in all of human history turned out to be the right answer to any question - why would you think it`s the right answer to anything we don`t currently understand?

Greta Christina

Believers unhesitatingly attribute every good thing in the world to God - and then respond to bad things by saying, "God works in mysterious ways." If God`s ways are so mysterious, and we can`t begin to understand his thinking behind tsunamis and drought and pediatric cancer, then what makes you think you understand his intentions when it comes to pretty sunsets or cute puppies or helping you find the peanut butter?

If you genuinely loved God, wouldn`t you want to understand him as best you can? When faced with different ideas about God, wouldn`t you want to ask some questions, and look at the supporting evidence for the different views, and try to figure out which one is probably true? Doesn`t it seem insulting to God to treat that question as if it didn`t matter? There are profound differences between religions. They are not trivial. And the different religions cannot all be right. (Although, as atheists like to point out, they can all be wrong.)

Greta Christina

If things go the believer`s way, it`s a sign of God`s grace and intervention; if they don`t, then God moves in mysterious ways, and maybe he has a lesson to teach that we don`t understand, and it`s not up to us to question his will. No matter what happens, it can be twisted to prove that the belief is right. That is a sure sign of a bad argument.

Carlo Rovelli

In order to move on, you must understand why you felt what you did and why you no longer need to feel it.

Mitch Albom

Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of relativity I do not understand it myself any more.

Albert Einstein

My mom and dad (and most moms and dads) said that I would never understand how much they loved me until I had my own children. (...) It`s the love you don`t choose, the animal love that gives the reason to live.

Penn Jillette

It takes a long time to understand nothing.

Edward Dahlberg

The more we understand the world, the less bewildering it becomes, and the more we’re able to change it.

Martin Rees

One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the confidence to say "I don`t know." It`s the foundation from which we begin our investigation of the world: asking questions, taking the necessary time to understand the answers, and searching for new answers when the ones we have in hand don`t seem to work. The feeling of not knowing is also the source of wonder and awe.
