My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
I suppose this makes sense in a way... but I battle to grasp it as a whole. Isn't it better to question things sometimes before acting? In school we are taught to think for ourselves and not just follow what others are doing.Having said that, school does condition us to think a certain way and so supresses other more 'natural' thought. Interesting... this needs more thought on my part. :-)
...and not be ashamed of doing so ;-)
True....In school I learned the answers to those stupid questions of life...so that after graduation I had the tools to tackle the important questions of life : )
Yeah, they praised me for asking why and wanting to understand. And then they tell me later in life that no one knows the "whys."
Hopefully it provides a safe environment, a forum, to ask those silly questions that we might not otherwise ask. Which then gives us the confidence to ask the more important question of ourselves later.
As I recall, most of the teachers had no useful answers then. I suppose life is to be lived, not studied.
Nice one...! But I like this one even bester: In school one learns to ask stupid questions, and then stupid teachers answer them. But I dont like being reminded of my school days as I don't like them much, either then or now.
If you have a teacher that listens.
For that teacher needs to b patience..
False. In school one learns to keep ones mouth shut and not question authority. For awhile.
Hmm...I like this, reminds me of an Albert Einstein quote:"It's a miracle that curiosity survives a formal education."It's great when you can say so much in so little!
Learning that it's okay to ask a question is a big one, to be sure. I also learned to play nice. It's served me pretty well!
I loved those days. You are like a open book, ready to learn anything.blak9820
Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Great blog here as well as your other one!
Thus, when we graduate as adults we can feel justified in continuing to ask stupid questions.
But not like math....at least for me anyways. :-0 :-)
I had some teachers who played music for us, read passages in books for us - those are the ones I remember.
I hated school! I guess I must have done something right, because I got into college. I had some terrific college professors who really challenged me!
Hey! I want you to check this post. =]http://life-in-a-jiffy.blogspot.com/2011/03/quote-blog.html

Hmm, actually I had quite different experience - in school we were not allowed to ask stupid questions of life or of anything (and would be penalized for that!)...lucky you!! :)
For once, I disagree :) School is where they teach the stupid lies of life.
Well we can't all agree, but we can still agree to disagree.
