“If situations cannot be created that enable the young to deal with feelings of being manipulated by outside forces, there will be far too little sense of agency among them. Without a sense of agency, young people are unlikely to pose significant questions, the existentially rooted questions in which learning begins.”
The Dialectics of Freedom, 1988
“A society which makes provision for participation in its good of all members on equal terms and which secures flexible readjustment of its institutions through interaction of the different forms of associated life is in so far democratic. Such a society must have a type of education which gives individuals a personal interest in social relationships and control, and the habits of mind which secure social changes.”
Democracy and Education, 1916
“Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.”
– The Time Keeper, Mitch Albom (2012)
“Faith is about doing. You are what you act, not just how you believe.”
“sayangnya orang tua itu harus bisa membuat anak berdiri sendiri ketika mereka nggak ada.”
Irene Elfrida (2010)

-Sepertinya ini quotes yang dulunya bagus di zaman-zaman kuliah statistik dan KAUP.
