None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.
Pearl S. Buck
I begin to feel like most Americans don't understand the First Amendment, don't understand the idea of freedom of speech, and don't understand that it's the responsibility of the citizen to speak out.
I understand people who boo us. It's like going to Broadway show, you pay for your tickets and expect to be entertained. When you're not, you have a right to complain.
Let us understand what our own selfish genes are up to because we may then at least have the chance to upset their designs.
What we don't understand we can make mean anything.
Life is very, very simple and easy to understand, but we complicate it with the beliefs and ideas that we create.
Miguel Angel Ruiz

You know, my dad served in the President's Cabinet after his time as a governor. He told me he enjoyed being governor a lot more. Now, I understand why. If I do my job well, I can make a difference in people's lives and I can help our children realize their dreams.
You can learn all about the human condition from covering the crime beat in a big city - you don't need to go to Beirut for that - but a foreign correspondent begins to understand poverty from a different perspective.
P. J. O'Rourke
I hope people understand that when you tax corporations that the concrete and the steel and the plastic don't pay. People pay.

If you spend 72 hours in a place you've never been, talking to people whose language you don't speak about social, political, and economic complexities you don't understand, and you come back as the world's biggest know-it-all, you're a reporter. Either that or you're President Obama.
P. J. O'Rourke
