John Dewey

John Dewey

The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs. Self-conceit often regards it as a sign of weakness to admit that a belief to which we have once committed ourselves is wrong. We get so identified with an idea that it is literally a pet notion and we rise to its defense and stop our eyes and ears to anything different.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Luck, bad if not good, will always be with us. But it has a way of favoring the intelligent and showing its back to the stupid.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Skepticism: the mark and even the pose of the educated mind.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think -- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Complete adaptation to environment means death. The essential point in all response is the desire to control environment.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We cannot seek or attain health, wealth, learning, justice or kindness in general. Action is always specific, concrete, individualized, unique.More John Dewey [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anyone who has begun to think, places some portion of the world in jeopardy.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:50]
By object is meant some element in the complex whole that is defined in abstraction from the whole of which it is a distinction.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:12]
Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:30]
Nature is the mother and the habitat of man, even if sometimes a stepmother and an unfriendly home.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:47]
No man's credit is as good as his money.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:03]
The belief that all genuine education comes about through experience does not mean that all experiences are genuinely or equally educative.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:32]
The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:49]
To me faith means not worrying.More John Dewey [07/11/2011 01:07:19]
Independent self people (would be) a counterproductive anachronism in the collective society of the future [...] (where) people will be defined by their associations.More John Dewey [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Conflict is the gadfly of thought. It stirs us to observation and memory. It instigates to invention. It shocks us out of sheeplike passivity, and sets us at noting and contriving.More John Dewey [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
