Quotable quotes

Posted on: June 28, 2015

Today I share another of my favourite quotations. I created this visual with Haiku Deck.

This quote has been attributed to Marx. I have no communist leanings and instead see the saying applied to education.

It is a reminder of the importance of praxis (the meeting of theory and practice). A researcher who operates in an ivory tower or who does not practice what he preaches should be treated with caution. A practitioner who cannot justify her methods should be treated with suspicion.

Again Haiku Deck is not very helpful in tracing the original CC-licensed image. Both the app and the web versions only provide a link to the photographer’s page and not the actual photo. I finally found the original image after a bit of trawling.
