John Dewey wrote: ‘One can think reflectively only when one is willing to endure suspense and to undergo the trouble of searching’ (1933, p.16).

One can think reflectively only when one is willing to endure suspense and to undergo the trouble of searching. To many persons both suspense of judgment and intellectual search are disagreeable; they want to get them ended as soon as possible (1933, p.16).
