If Your Theory is Foolish ...

Any new theory first is attacked as absurd; then it is admitted to be true, but obvious and insignificant; finally it seems to be important, so important that its adversaries claim that they themselves discovered it!
-- William James (1842-1910)

Just because I attack your new theory of educational practice as absurd does not mean that it will someday be true.
-- Curmudgeon (2010)
