Teaching is more difficult than learning because what teaching calls for is this: to let learn. The real teacher, in fact, lets nothing else be learned than learning. His conduct, therefore, often produces the impression that we properly learn nothing from him, if by "learning" we now suddenly understand merely the procurement of useful information.
If you can read this, thank a teacher.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
The job of a teacher is to excite in the young a boundless sense of curiosity about life, so that the growing child shall come to apprehend it with an excitement tempered by awe and wonder.
Edmond H. Fischer
It is commonly said that a teacher fails if he has not been surpassed by his students.
David E. Price
The impending teacher shortage is the most critical education issue we will face in the next decade.
Malcolm S. Forbes
Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything -- even mountains, rivers, plants and trees -- should be your teacher.
Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers and teachers.
Thomas H. Huxley
Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever or whatever abysses nature leads, or you will learn nothing.
