“Thought affords the sole method of escape from purely impulsive or purely routine action. A being without capacity for thought is moved only by instincts and appetites…. the ideas and images in men’s minds are the invisible powers that constantly govern them.” -John Dewey

“The inferior man’s reasons for hating knowledge are not hard to discern. He hates it because it is complex – because it puts an unbearable burden on his meager capacity for taking in ideas. Thus his search is always for short cuts. All superstitions are such short cuts. Their aim is to make the unintelligible simple, and even obvious.” -H.L. Mencken

“Reflection involves not simply a sequence of ideas, but a consequence – a consecutive ordering in such a way that each determines the next as its proper outcome, while each in turn leans back on its predecessors.  The successive portions of the reflective thought grow out of one another and support one another; they do not come and go in a medley.  Each phase is a step from something to something – technically speaking, it is a term of thought.” -John Dewey
