What He Said

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

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

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

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

All quotes from John Dewey, 1859-1952

(Though I quibble with that last quote. I think you could say that life is education itself.)
