More From Edward Thorndike
- "From the lowest animals of which we can affirm intelligence up to man this type of intellect is found."
- "Human education is concerned with certain changes in the intellects, characters and behavior of men, its problems being roughly included under these four topics: Aims, materials, means and methods."
- "There is no reasoning, no process of inference or comparison; there is no thinking about things, no putting two and two together; there are no ideas – the animal does not think of the box or of the food or of the act he is to perform."
More In Nature
- "It is impossible to imagine a more complete fusion with nature than that of the Gypsy."― Franz Liszt
- "It is the nature of truth in general, as of some ores in particular, to be richest when most superficial."― Edgar Allan Poe
- "A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."― Thomas Jefferson
