Most of the biggest catastrophes that we've witnessed rarely come from information that is secret or hidden. It comes from information that is freely available and out there, but that we are willfully blind to, because we can't handle, don't want to handle, the conflict that it provokes. But when we dare to break that silence, or when we dare to see, and we create conflict, we enable ourselves and the people around us to do our very best thinking.
Open information is fantastic, open networks are essential. But the truth won't set us free until we develop the skills and the habit and the talent and the moral courage to use it. Openness isn't the end. It's the beginning.

Margaret Heffernan

Democracy works only if we citizens are capable of thinking beyond our narrow self-interest. But to do so, we need a shared view of the world we cohabit. We need to come into contact with other peoples' lives and needs and desires. The filter bubble pushes us in the opposite direction - it creates the impression that our narrow self-interest is all that exists. And while this is great for getting people to shop online, it’s not great for getting people to make better decisions together.

Eli Pariser

We're used to thinking of the Web as a series of one-to-one relationships. [... ] But behind the scenes, the Web is becoming increasingly integrated. Businesses are realizing that it's profitable to share data.

Eli Pariser

Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking. This is central to its success. Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don`t conform to our preconceptions. It counsels us to carry alternative hypotheses in our heads and see which ones best match the facts. It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous skeptical scrutiny of everything - new ideas and established wisdom. We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking. It works. It`s an essential tool for a democracy in an age of change. Our task is not just to train more scientists but also to deepen public understanding of science.

Carl Sagan

Collective thinking is usually short-lived. We`re fickle, stupid beings with poor memories and a great gift for self-destruction.

Suzanne Collins

Balance your thoughts with action. - If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you`ll never get it done.

Bruce Lee

Even the most vaunted experts are susceptible to wishful thinking and can be blinded to a truth by a conviction that is supported more by emotional attachment than reason.

Daniel Dennett

Thinking is hard. Thinking about some problems is so hard it can make your head ache just thinking about thinking about them.

Daniel Dennett

I've learned that empowered thinking is a choice - a state of mind. It's the ability to enjoy a rose with no mind of the thorn. It's the ability to celebrate a life even though it has passed. It's seeing the flowers even during a rainstorm.

Steve Maraboli

It`s thinking you know that stops you from knowing.

Steve Maraboli
