“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”
“The goal of education is to enable individuals to continue their education.”
“We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.”
“Art is not the possession of the few who are recognized writers, painters, musicians; it is the authentic expression of any and all individuality.”
“There’s all the difference in the world between having something to say, and having to say something.”
“We only think when we are confronted with problems.”
“Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.”
“The good man, no matter how morally unworthy he has been, is moving to become better.”
“The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.”
