Interesting Quotes

 
Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.

Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.

Skepticism: the mark and even the pose of the educated mind.

The belief that all genuine education comes about through experience does not mean that all experiences are genuinely or equally educative.

The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.
