#14. Sacajawea's celebrated role on the Lewis and Clark expedition wasn't primarily that of a navigator; she made their being lost more viable by her knowledge of useful plants, of languages, by the way she and her infant signified to the tribes they encountered that this was not a war party, and perhaps by her sense that all this was home, or somebody's home. - Author: Rebecca Sonlit

Democratic Knowledge quotes by Tom Segev
#26. Humanity's "progress of knowledge" and the "evolution of consciousness" have too often been characterized as if our task were simply to ascend a very tall cognitive ladder with graded hierarchical steps that represent successive developmental stages in which we solve increasingly challenging mental riddles, like advanced problems in a graduate exam in biochemistry or logic. But to understand life and the cosmos better, perhaps we are required to transform not only our minds but our hearts. For the whole being, body and soul, mind and spirit, is implicated. Perhaps we must go not only high and far but down and deep. Our world view and cosmology, which defines the context for everything else, is profoundly affected by the degree to which all out faculties–intellectual, imaginative, aesthetic, moral, emotional, somatic, spiritual, relational–enter the process of knowing. How we approach "the other," and how we approach each other, will shape everything, including out own evolving self and the cosmos in which we participate. - Author: Richard Tarnas
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Richard Tarnas

Denial, repression and dissociation operate on a Social, as well as an individual level. - Author: Judith Lewis Herman
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Judith Lewis Herman
#28. The nation, so long a victim of monarchical selfishness, thought to deliver itself for ever by declaring that it alone was sovereign. But what was monarchy? The sovereignty of one man. What is democracy? The sovereignty of the nation, or, rather, of the national majority. But it is, in both cases, the sovereignty of man instead of the sovereignty of the law, the sovereignty of the will instead of the sovereignty of the reason; in one word, the passions instead of justice. Undoubtedly, when a nation passes from the monarchical to the democratic state, there is progress, because in multiplying the sovereigns we increase the opportunities of the reason to substitute itself for the will; but in reality there is no revolution in the government, since the principle remains the same. Now, we have the proof to-day that, with the most perfect democracy, we cannot be free. - Author: Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#29. Should we not be moved rather than chilled by the knowledge that he might have attained his greatness only through his frailties? - Author: Lou Andreas Salome
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Lou Andreas Salome
#30. There is a way in which the collective knowledge of mankind expresses itself, for the finite individual, through mere daily living ... a way in which life itself is sheer knowing. - Author: Laurens Van Der Post
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Laurens Van Der Post
#31. It is of the very nature of partial seeing that we cannot see all the reconciliation of the parts we see, because it is only in the whole that they are one, and we do not see the whole. The word we form cannot wholly express God: only the Word He generates can do that. To be irked at this necessary darkness is as though we were irked at not being God. - Author: Frank Sheed
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Frank Sheed

Democratic Knowledge quotes by Elliott Abrams

Democratic Knowledge quotes by Frederick Lenz
#37. Knowledge is an addiction, as drink; knowledge does not bring understanding. Knowledge can be taught, but not wisdom; there must be freedom from knowledge for the coming of wisdom. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#38. To oscillate between drill exercises that strive to attain efficiency in outward doing without the use of intelligence, and an accumulation of knowledge that is supposed to be an ultimate end in itself, means that education accepts the present social conditions as final, and thereby takes upon itself the responsibility for perpetuating them. A reorganization of education so that learning takes place in connection with the intelligent carrying forward of purposeful activities is a slow work. It can be accomplished only piecemeal, a step at a time. - Author: John Dewey
Democratic Knowledge quotes by John Dewey

Democratic Knowledge quotes by H.J. Chammas
#43. Let's call this then, only half facetiously, a new patristic, in which the intellectual is charged with the task not only to denounce error and unmask illusions, and not only to incarnate the mechanisms of new practices of knowledge, but also, together with others in a process of co-research, to produce a new truth.
Commonwealth, 118 - Author: Michael Hardt
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Michael Hardt
#44. There is a limited elite that understands the secrets of their own techniques, but not necessarily of all techniques. These men are close to the seat of modern governmental power. The state is no longer founded on the 'average citizen', but on the ability and knowledge of this elite. The average man is altogether unable to penetrate technical secrets or governmental organization and consequently can exert no influence at all on the state. - Author: Jacques Ellul
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Jacques Ellul
#45. Happiness will grow if you plant the seeds of love in the garden of hope with compassion and care. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Debasish Mridha
#46. It is a sunny fall afternoon and I'm engaged in one of my favorite pastimes - picking chestnuts. I'm playing alone under the spreading, leafy, protective tree. My mother is sitting on a bench nearby, rocking the buggy in which my sister is asleep. The city, beyond the lacy wall of trees, is humming with gentle noises. The sun has just passed its highest point and is warming me with intense, oblique rays. I pick up a reddish brown chestnut, and suddenly, through its warm skin, I feel the beat as if of a heart. But the beat is also in everything around me, and everything pulsates and shimmers as if it were coursing with the blood of life. Stooping under the tree, I'm holding life in my hand, and I am in the center of a harmonious, vibrating transparency. For that moment, I know everything there is to know. I have stumbled into the very center of plenitude, and I hold myself still with fulfillment, before the knowledge of my knowledge escapes me. - Author: Eva Hoffman
Democratic Knowledge quotes by Eva Hoffman
