Excellent quote, and I believe we need to keep that front and center in our educational practices. Unfortunately, it's very hard to do because most people actively resist thinking.

Oh gosh, I agree with Charles! I don't understand it, but many students do resist thinking, LOL!

So true, Charles, so true.

Thanks, Bernard. :-)

It's something to think about to be sure, Spy. :-)
