[Quote No.56598] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"[The importance of being skeptical until sufficient proof is acquired:] Among those points of self-education which take up the form of mental discipline, there is one of great importance, and, moreover, difficult to deal with, because it involves an internal conflict, and equally touches our vanity and our ease. It consists in the tendency to deceive ourselves regarding all we wish for, and the necessity of resistance to these desires. It is impossible for any one who has not been constrained, by the course of his occupation and thoughts, to a habit of continual self-correction, to be aware of the amount of error in relation to judgment arising from this tendency. The force of the temptation which urges us to seek for such evidence and appearances as are in favour of our desires, and to disregard those which oppose them, [often called 'confirmation bias'] is wonderfully great. In this respect we are all, more or less, active promoters of error. In place of practising wholesome self-abnegation, we ever make the wish the father to the thought: we receive as friendly that which agrees with, we resist with dislike that which opposes us; whereas the very reverse is required by every dictate of common sense. ... The inclination we exhibit in respect of any report or opinion that harmonizes with our preconceived notions, can only be compared in degree with the incredulity we entertain towards everything that opposes them... It is my firm persuasion that no man can examine himself in the most common things, having any reference to him personally, or to any person, thought or matter related to him, without being soon made aware of the temptation and the difficulty of opposing it... That point of self-education [science and practical wisdom] which consists in teaching the mind to resist its desires and inclinations, until they are proved to be right, is the most important of all, not only in things of natural philosophy, but in every department of daily life." - Michael Faraday
(1791 - 1867), pioneering English physicist and chemist. Quote from a lecture at the Royal Institution on the subject of 'mental discipline', he delivered on May 6, 1854, that was later included in his volume 'Experimental Researches In Chemistry And Physics'.

"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:-] This is true liberty, when free-born men, Having to advise the public, may speak free, Which he who can, and will, deserves high praise; Who neither can, nor will, may hold his peace: What can be juster in a state than this? ...If we think to regulate printing, thereby to rectify manners, we must regulate all recreation and pastimes, all that is delightful to man. No music must be heard, no song be set or sung, but what is grave and Doric. There must be licensing dancers, that no gesture, motion, or deportment be taught our youth but what by their allowance shall be thought honest; for such Plato was provided of. It will ask more than the work of twenty licensers to examine all the lutes, the violins, and the guitars in every house; they must not be suffered to prattle as they do, but must be licensed what they may say. And who shall silence all the airs and madrigals that whisper softness in chambers?... Many there be that complain of divine Providence for suffering Adam to transgress; foolish tongues! When God gave him reason, he gave him freedom to choose, for reason is but choosing; he had been else a mere artificial Adam, such an Adam as he is in the motions. We ourselves esteem not of that obedience, or love, or gift, which is of force: God therefore left him free, set before him a provoking object, ever almost in his eyes; herein consisted his merit, herein the right of his reward, the praise of his abstinence. Wherefore did he create passions within us, pleasures round about us, but that these rightly tempered are the very ingredients of virtue? They are not skilful considerers of human things, who imagine to remove sin by removing the matter of sin..." - John Milton
(1608-1678) English poet. Quoted from his pamphlet, 'Areopagitica: A Speech For The Liberty Of Unlicensed Printing To The Parliament Of England', (1644).

"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] The time, it is to be hoped, is gone by, when any defence would be necessary of the 'liberty of the press' as one of the securities against corrupt or tyrannical government. No argument, we may suppose, can now be needed, against permitting a legislature or an executive, not identified in interest with the people, to prescribe opinions to them, and determine what doctrines or what arguments they shall be allowed to hear." - John Stuart Mill
(1806–1873). Quote from his book, 'On Liberty', published 1869. [Chapter II: Of the Liberty of Thought and Discussion].

[Quote No.56729] Need Area: Mind > Learn
"Of all people only those are at leisure [ease] who make time for philosophy [the love of ideas, knowledge and wisdom], only those are really alive. For they not only keep a good watch over their own lifetimes, but they annex every age to theirs. All the years that have passed before them are added to their own. Unless we are very ungrateful, all those distinguished founders of holy creeds were born for us and prepared for us a way of life. By the toil of others we are led into the presence of things which have been brought from darkness into light. ... From them you can take whatever you wish: it will not be their fault if you do not take your fill from them. What happiness, what a fine old age awaits the man who has made himself a client of these! He will have friends whose advice he can ask on the most important or the most trivial matters, whom he can consult daily about himself, who will tell him the truth without insulting him and praise him without flattery, who will offer him a pattern on which to model himself. ... We are in the habit of saying that it was not in our power to choose the parents [guides] who were allotted to us, that they were given to us by chance. But we can choose whose children [disciples] we would like to be. There are households of the noblest intellects [philosophers]: choose the one into which you wish to be adopted, and you will inherit not only their name but their [intellectual] property too. Nor will this property need to be guarded meanly or grudgingly: the more it is shared out, the greater it will become. These will offer you a path to immortality and raise you to a point from which no one is cast down. This is the only way to prolong mortality - even to convert it to immortality." - Seneca
(4 BC - 65 AD), Roman philosopher. Quote from his treatise 'On the Shortness of Life'.

"We are meaning-seeking creatures. Biologically, our nervous systems are organized in such a way that the brain automatically clusters incoming stimuli into configurations. Meaning also provides a sense of mastery: feeling helpless and confused in the face of random, unpatterned events, we seek to order them and, in so doing, gain a sense of control over them." - Irvin D. Yalom

"[Freedom of thought, speech, expression and press versus censorship and propaganda:] To a genuine liberal [that is a 'classical liberal', which today is best represented by libertarianism], tolerance means more than endorsing a wide range of beliefs and practices. It means allowing nonviolent people to say and do things that we strongly disagree with, disapprove of, or find highly offensive. It means not assuming our own moral superiority over the wickedness or stupidity of our ideological opponents. English writer Beatrice Evelyn Hall captured that liberal spirit when she (and not Voltaire) wrote, 'I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.' " - Sandy Ikeda

"Civilization is not inherited. It has to be learned and earned by each generation anew. Consider education not as the painful accumulation of facts and dates, nor merely the necessary preparation of the individual to earn his keep in the world, but as the transmission of our mental, moral, technical, and aesthetic heritage, as fully as possible to as many as possible, for the enlargement of man’s understanding, control, embellishment and enjoyment of life. If a man is fortunate, he will before he dies gather up as much as he can of his civilized heritage and transmit it to his children, and to his final breath he will be grateful for this inexhaustible legacy, knowing that it is our nourishing mother and our lasting life." - Will and Ariel Durant

"There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says 'Morning, boys. How's the water?' And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes 'What the hell is water?' ...The point of the fish story is merely that the most obvious, important realities are often the ones that are hardest to see and talk about. [Life-skills are some of these most obvious, important realities which are often the hardest to see and talk about, and yet they are really the most important to living well, being happy and successful and contributing to improving the world for yourself, those you love and the rest of us. One of the most important and powerful life-skills is learning how to think:] ...learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think. It means being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention to and to choose how you construct meaning from experience. Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life, you will be totally hosed. Think of the old cliche about 'the mind being an excellent servant but a terrible master.'...On one level, we all know this stuff already. It's been codified as myths, proverbs, cliches, epigrams, parables; the skeleton of every great story. The whole trick is keeping the truth up front in daily consciousness!" - David Foster Wallace
(1962-2008), American author of novels, short stories and essays, as well as a professor of English and creative writing. Quoted from his commencement speech in 2005 to Kenyon College. The speech was published as a book called 'This Is Water' in 2009. In May 2013, portions of the speech were used in a popular online video also titled 'This is Water'.
