New opinions are always suspected, and usually opposed, without any other reason but because they are not already common.
—  John Locke
Curiosity in children, is but an appetite for knowledge. One great reason why children abandon themselves wholly to silly pursuits and trifle away their time insipidly is, because they find their curiosity balked, and their inquiries neglected.
—  John Locke
Truth, then, seems to me, in the proper import of the word, to signify nothing but the joining or separating of Signs, as the Things signified by them do agree or disagree one with another. The joining or separating of signs here meant, is what by another name we call proposition. So that truth properly belongs only to propositions: whereof there are two sorts, viz. mental and verbal; as there are two sorts of signs commonly made use of, viz. ideas and words.
—  John Locke
The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.
—  John Locke
A sound mind in a sound body, is a short but full description of a happy state in this world.
—  John Locke
Reason is natural revelation, whereby the eternal father of light, and fountain of all knowledge, communicates to mankind that portion of truth which he has laid within the reach of their natural faculties: revelation is natural reason enlarged by a new set of discoveries communicated by God.
—  John Locke
That which is static and repetitive is boring. That which is dynamic and random is confusing. In between lies art.
—  John Locke
Probability is a kind of penance, which God made, suitable, I presume to that state of mediocrity and probationership he has been pleased to place us in here; wherein, to check our over-confidence and presumption, we might, by every day's experience, be made sensible of our short-sightedness, and liableness to error.
—  John Locke
The only fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.
—  John Locke
Every man must some time or other be trusted to himself.
—  John Locke
