Reflection belongs to the head alone; but the whole body has memory. a dancer's feet, a clever musician's fingers, have in an eminent degree the faculty of recollection

They only live who dare!

Paulo Freire from wikipedia
Paulo Freire contributed a philosophy of education that came not only from the more classical approaches stemming from Plato, but also from modern Marxist and anti-colonialist thinkers. In fact, in many ways his Pedagogy of the Oppressed may be best read as an extension of, or reply to, Frantz Fanon's The Wretched of the Earth, which emphasized the need to provide native populations with an education which was simultaneously new and modern (rather than traditional) and anti-colonial (not simply an extension of the culture of the colonizer).

Freire is best-known for his attack on what he called the "banking" concept of education, in which the student was viewed as an empty account to be filled by the teacher. The basic critique was not new — Rousseau's conception of the child as an active learner was already a step away from tabula rasa (which is basically the same as the "banking concept"), and thinkers like John Dewey were strongly critical of the transmission of mere "facts" as the goal of education. Freire's work, however, updated the concept and placed it in context with current theories and practices of education, laying the foundation for what is now called critical pedagogy.

More challenging is Freire's strong aversion to the teacher-student dichotomy. This dichotomy is admitted in Rousseau and constrained in Dewey, but Freire comes close to insisting that it should be completely abolished.

Better to sit quietly and be thought a fool than open your mouth and be proved one.

Unknown Research useless.

The senses and thoughts are like weeds on the clear water-- covering the surface of the water.
The hand of the intellect sweeps those weeds aside; then the water is revealed to the intellect...

Rumi

Thus only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that, a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten, men who never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought—the subtle rapture of a postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army.

Aristotle From the wiki: Greek philosopher and polymath, a student of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Great. His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle's writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.

Though religions have distinct names and doctrines, in essence, all are one. They emphasize the common core. Unfortunately, the apparent differences amongst religions have subverted the amity of all men. All religious dogmas, except a few, can easily be harmonized and reconciled. The experience and wisdom of great seers who expounded universal love are not appreciated, accepted, and respected. The same God is extolled and adored in various nam...

Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba (born as Sathya Narayana Raju; 23 November 1926 - 24 April 2011) was an Indian guru, and philanthropist. He claimed to be the reincarnation of Sai Baba of Shirdi. Sai Baba's materialisations of vibhuti (holy ash) and other small objects such as rings, necklaces, and watches, along with reports of miraculous healings, resurrections, clairvoyance, bilocation, and alleged omnipotence and omniscience, were a source of both fame and controversy.
