“‘We are all very anxious to be understood, and it is very hard not to be. But there is one thing much more necessary.’
‘What is that, grandmother?’
‘To understand other people.’
‘Yes, grandmother. I must be fair—for if I’m not fair to other people, I’m not worth being understood myself. I see.'”
If only certain evangelical and Reformed pastors were as clear about this duty as the princess Irene is!
