John Locke bol anglický filozof, považovaný za jedného zo zakladateľov novovekej filozofie. Je hlavný predstaviteľ empirizmu a autor sociálno-filozofických teórií. Jeho myšlienky vo veľkom ovplyvnili rozvoj politickej filozofie a teórie spoločenskej zmluvy a jeho spisy mali tiež priamy vplyv na formuláciu Vyhlásenia nezávislosti a americkej ústavy.

„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

„Curiosity should be as carefully cherish'd in children, as other appetites suppress'd.“

— John Locke
Context: They should always be heard, and fairly and kindly answer'd, when they ask after any thing they would know, and desire to be informed about. Curiosity should be as carefully cherish'd in children, as other appetites suppress'd. Sec. 108

„There cannot be a greater rudeness, than to interrupt another in the current of his discourse“

— John Locke
Context: There cannot be a greater rudeness, than to interrupt another in the current of his discourse... To which, if there be added, as is usual, a correcting of any mistake, or a contradiction of what has been said, it is a mark of yet greater pride and self-conceitedness, when we thus intrude our selves for teachers, and take upon us either to set another right in his story, or shew the mistakes of his judgement. Sec. 145

„That force is to be opposed to nothing, but to unjust and unlawful force.“

— John Locke
Context: To this I answer: That force is to be opposed to nothing, but to unjust and unlawful force. Whoever makes any opposition in any other case, draws on himself a just condemnation, both from God and man… Second Treatise of Government, Ch. XVIII, sec. 204
