Quote Of The Day.


“Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes. Genuine ignorance is profitable because it is likely to be accompanied by humility, curiosity, and open-mindedness; whereas ability to repeat catch-phrases, cant terms, familiar propositions, gives the conceit of learning and coats the mind with varnish waterproof to new ideas.”

– John Dewey

    Most who share this quote share the first line only.  I like it the way I heard Jayne Mansfield say it, “You learn from your mistakes.”  I had no difficulty paying attention to her either when she talked.

    That’s phrased something that I’ve been thinking for a while. Not so much the faliure part but the “ability to repeat catch-phrases, cant terms, familiar propositions, gives the conceit of learning and coats the mind with varnish waterproof to new ideas” part.
