“They know not how many things are signified by the words stealing, sowing, buying, keeping quiet, seeing what ought to be done; for this is not effected by the eyes, but by another kind of vision.”
Marcus Aurelius. Meditations. 3.15

They may not spend the time as you will to understand another, but it is our responsibility to ourselves to understand them. Our main goal is to live in accordance with Nature, and that means understanding others.
