The Mark of an Education

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”


Just a question – has anyone figured out how to do this?

  1. Not really sure what he means…I must not be educated enough!

    I want to let you know that some of your blog posts don’t show up in my Reader, including this one, which I saw on Twitter.


    1. I love your honesty!!! It is a mark of being educated. As the saying goes, the more you learn, the more you don’t know. A good example is WordPress! I have no idea why my posts are not showing up in the reader. I have found that to be the case as well with others so I signed up to receive the e-mail prompts so I won’t miss any of the bloggers that I follow. Perhaps it is because I schedule my posts for a later time (1 hour in the future) rather than publishing them directly. I always want to complete a last minute check to see if everything looks OK. I must confess, I am still learning WordPress as I go along…


  2. What it means be open to ideas and do not reject what you read or hear straight away . All knowledge is useful. Ideas can be modified to suit different situations for different people. It also in my opinion means that once you start doing it you are building a reservoir. Age and experience allows you to modify your thoughts and habits. What do you say 🙂

    As usual I love your crisp posts.


    1. Thank you for your insightful comments. I especially appreciate your words: “All knowledge is useful. Ideas can be modified.” What an excellent thought to have as a basis for every conversation, discussion, debate, argument. There were be more friendships, stronger communities and a more peaceful world.


  3. I don’t know, but I am reading Vitruvius Ten book sabout architecture right now, it is sooo interesting in all terms, not only about architecture. Really inspirative.
