John Locke byl anglický filosof. Proslul zejména svou empiristickou teorií poznání a svou politickou filosofií, v níž hájil přirozenou svobodu a rovnost lidí. Hluboce ovlivnil britské osvícenství a pozdější liberální myšlení.

„The Indians, whom we call barbarous, observe much more decency and civility in their discourses and conversation“

—  John Locke
Context: The Indians, whom we call barbarous, observe much more decency and civility in their discourses and conversation, giving one another a fair silent hearing till they have quite done; and then answering them calmly, and without noise or passion. And if it be not so in this civiliz'd part of the world, we must impute it to a neglect in education, which has not yet reform'd this antient piece of barbarity amongst us. Sec. 145

„Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.“

—  John Locke
Context: This is that which I think great readers are apt to be mistaken in; those who have read of everything, are thought to understand everything too; but it is not always so. Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours. We are of the ruminating kind, and it is not enough to cram ourselves with a great load of collections; unless we chew them over again, they will not give us strength and nourishment. As quoted in "Hand Book : Caution and Counsels" in The Common School Journal Vol. 5, No. 24 (15 December 1843) by Horace Mann, p. 371

„Let a child but be ordered to whip his top at a certain time every day“

—  John Locke
Context: None of the things they learn, should ever be made a burthen to them, or impos's on them as a task. Whatever is so proposed, presently becomes irksome; the mind takes an aversion to it, though before it were a thing of delight or indifferency. Let a child but be ordered to whip his top at a certain time every day, whether he has or has not a mind to it; let this be but requir'd of him as a duty, wherein he must spend so many hours morning and afternoon, and see whether he will not soon be weary of any play at this rate. Is it not so with grown men? Sec. 73

„We are all a sort of camelions, that still take a tincture from things near us“

—  John Locke
Context: We are all a sort of camelions, that still take a tincture from things near us; nor is it to be wonder'd at in children, who better understand what they see than what they hear. Sec. 67

„False and doubtful positions, relied upon as unquestionable maxims, keep those who build on them in the dark from truth.“

—  John Locke
Context: False and doubtful positions, relied upon as unquestionable maxims, keep those who build on them in the dark from truth. Such are usually the prejudices imbibed from education, party, reverence, fashion, interest, et cetera. Book IV, Ch. 7

„The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom.“

—  John Locke
Context: The end of law is not to abolish or restrain, but to preserve and enlarge freedom. For in all the states of created beings, capable of laws, where there is no law there is no freedom. Second Treatise of Government, Ch. VI, sec. 57
