I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
The teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Those who educate children well are more to be honored than parents, for these only gave life, those the art of living well.
A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard.
Modern cynics and skeptics… see no harm in paying those to whom they entrust the minds of their children a smaller wage than is paid to those to whom they entrust the care of their plumbing.
John F. Kennedy
A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary.
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Henry Brooks Adams
The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.
Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.
John Cotton Dana
