As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
~ Henry David Thoreau
“Isolation is the enemy of improvement.” ~Tony Wagner, author of The Global Achievement Gap

“Curriculums must become more thought-filled in the sense of enlarging students’ capacities to think deeply and creatively.”–Costa (2008)
