This is an excellent quotation from Socrates, who always taught to question everything and to think for yourself.

  1. And absolutely crucial… There was a time when education was teaching our children how to think for themselves. I’m not sure it does that anymore – it seems these days, that education is all about teaching children how to pass tests and exams.

  2. Excellent quote! It’s amazing how complex seemingly simple “truths” become when we take a closer look at them. Oddly enough, I just finished a post examining one of the basic assumptions about human behavior: that our attitudes predict our actions. I’m not trying to advertise my blog here, but I find it uncanny that I posted an article that fits so well with the theme of your reblogged quote. And on the same day you reblogged it!
