„As well you try to understand the sun, Perrin. It simply is, and it is not to be understood. You cannot live without it, but it exacts a price. So with women.“

„And whatever he understood, he could make others understand as well.“

—  Richard Feynman American theoretical physicist 1918 - 1988
Context: Even when Richard didn't understand, he always seemed to understand better than the rest of us. And whatever he understood, he could make others understand as well. Richard made people feel like children do when a grown-up first treats them as adults. He was never afraid to tell the truth, and however foolish your question was, he never made you feel like a fool. W. Daniel Hillis, " Richard Feynman and the Connection Machine http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.881196", Physics Today, volume 42, number 2, February 1989, p. 78-83, at p. 83

„The understanding of relationship, fear, pleasure and sorrow is to bring order in our house. Without order you cannot possibly meditate.“

—  Jiddu Krishnamurti Indian spiritual philosopher 1895 - 1986
Context: The understanding of relationship, fear, pleasure and sorrow is to bring order in our house. Without order you cannot possibly meditate. Now the speaker puts meditation at the end of the talks because there is no possibility of right meditation if you have not put your house, your psychological house, in order. If the psychological house is in disorder, if what you are is in disorder, what is the point of meditating? It is just an escape. It leads to all kinds of illusions. The Network of Thought (1982) http://www.jkrishnamurti.org/krishnamurti-teachings/view-text.php?tid=8&chid=56898 J.Krishnamurti Online. Serial No. 332. , p. 96

„To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.“

—  Zhuangzi classic Chinese philosopher -369 - -286 a.C.
Book XXIII, ¶ 7,as rendered in the epigraph to Ch. 3 of The Lathe of Heaven (1971) by Ursula K. Le Guin, based upon the 1891 translation by James Legge, Le Guin was subsequently informed that this was a very poor translation, as there were no lathes in China in the time of Zhuangzi. The full passage as translated by Legge reads:
