A Quote by Thomas Szasz on humble, humility, ego, children, age, learning, self-importance, vanity, and self-esteem

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.

Thomas Szasz (1920 - ?)
