John Locke

was an English philosopher and physician regarded as one of the most influential of Enlightenment thinkers
There cannot be greater rudeness than to interrupt another in the current of his discourse.More John Locke quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As children's inquiries are not to be slighted, so also great care is to be taken, that they never receive deceitful and illuding answers. They easily perceive when they are slighted or deceived, and quickly learn the trick of neglect, dissimulation, and falsehood, which they observe others to make use of. We are not to intrench upon truth in any conversation, but least of all with children; since, if we play false with them, we not only deceive their expectation, and hinder their knowledge, but corrupt their innocenceMore John Locke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A king is a mortal god on earth, unto whom the living God hath lent his own name as a great honour; but withal told him, he should die like a man, lest he should be proud, and flatter himself that God hath with his name imparted unto him his nature also.More John Locke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Since the great foundation of fear is pain, the way to harden and fortify children against fear and danger is to accustom them to suffer pain.More John Locke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Where there is no law there is no freedom.More John Locke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
