"Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer injury to our self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their self-importance, learn so easily; and why older people, especially if vain or arrogant, cannot learn at all."

~ Thomas Szasz, 90, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at the State University of New York; well-known social critic of the moral & scientific foundations of psychiatry, & of the social control aims of medicine in modern society;
