William James

American psychologist and philosopher
... the intellect, everywhere invasive, shows everywhere its shallowing effect.More William James quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But when all is said and done, the fact remains that some teachers have a naturally inspiring presence and can make their exercises interesting, whilst others simply cannot. And psychology and general pedagogy here confess their failure, and hand things over to the deeper spring of human personality to conduct the task.More William James quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You can alter your life by altering the state of your mind.More William James quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Social evolution is a resultant of the interaction of two wholly distinct factors: the individual ... bearing all the power of initiative and origination in his hands; and, second, the social environment with its power of adopting or rejecting both him and his gifts. Both factors are essential to change. The community stagnates without the impulse of the individual. The impulse dies away without the sympathy of the community.More William James quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everybody should do at least two things each day that he hates to do, just for practice.More William James quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
