Understanding

April 20, 2017

Mastering the art

of unselfish understanding

requires a capacity for empathy

with another person strong enough

to feel the experience of the other

as if it were his own.

Such empathy is a crucial facet

of the capacity for love.

Understanding and loving are inseparable.

~Erich Fromm

(1900–1980 humanistic psychologist

and philosopher)
