John Dewey   Category:

Man lives in a world of surmise, of mystery, of uncertainties.
John Dewey   Category:

Nature is the mother and the habitat of man, even if sometimes a stepmother and an unfriendly home.
John Dewey   Category:

No man's credit is as good as his money.
John Dewey   Category:

One lives with so many bad deeds on one's conscience and some good intentions in one's heart.
John Dewey   Category:

Skepticism: the mark and even the pose of the educated mind.
John Dewey   Category:

Such happiness as life is capable of comes from the full participation of all our powers in the endeavor to wrest from each changing situations of experience its own full and unique meaning.
John Dewey   Category:

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

The good man is the man who, no matter how morally unworthy he has been, is moving to become better.
John Dewey   Category:

The path of least resistance and least trouble is a mental rut already made. It requires troublesome work to undertake the alternation of old beliefs.
John Dewey   Category:

The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.
John Dewey   Category:

Time and memory are true artists; they remould reality nearer to the heart's desire.
John Dewey   Category:

To find out what one is fitted to do, and to secure an opportunity to do it, is the key to happiness.
