Famous quotes containing the word practice:

    Communism to me is one-third practice and two-thirds explanation.
    Will Rogers (1879–1935)

    Know how to be content and you will never be disgraced; practice self-restraint and you will never be in danger.
    —Chinese proverb.

    Laozi.

    The classroom, with all its limitations, remains a location of possibility. In that field of possibility we have the opportunity to labor for freedom, to demand of ourselves and our comrades, an openness of mind and heart that allows us to face reality even as we collectively imagine ways to move beyond boundaries, to transgress. This is education as the practice of freedom.
    bell hooks (b. c. 1955)
