A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary.
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

Teaching creates all other professions.
If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn’t want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.
