Thinking about thinking…

“We thought all this teaching was to make us smart. What it did was make us stupid. With all the little facts we learned, we never had the time to think.” Chuck Palahniuk

“I have come gradually to understand that the liberal arts cliché about teaching you how to think is actually shorthand for a much deeper, more serious idea: 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.” David Foster Wallace

“In sum, then, “thinking about thinking” has to be a principal ingredient of any empowering practice of education.” Jerome S Bruner

“I drink much less than most people think, and I think much more than most people would believe.” Hunter S Thompson
