“The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.” – Leonard Da Vinci
Understanding is an amazing quality because understanding is the capability of comprehending and acknowledging the world and people around you. To understand you have to be a good listener and mindful of what is occurring around you. Hearing what people have to say makes you wiser, more cultural, and more open-minded. Being open-minded creates an easy-going personality which overall develops a lifestyle of being happy and doing fun things. When you can understand what your friends are going through or at least understand the struggle they are going through it makes you more compassionate and have empathy towards them. When you’re compassionate towards someone, they are compassionate back and it is a real joy to know someone else cares about you the same amount that you care about them. Understanding one another creates better relationships and having balanced and happy relationships is the goal. Understanding concepts, yourself, ideas, and the world around you creates joy in many aspects of life. This is why the noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding.
