A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Amuse the mind
Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
Sir Winston Churchill
Bigger than ...
Learning to teach is a bigger job than universities, schools, experience, or personal disposition alone can accomplish.
There is a brilliant child locked inside every student.
What is important is to keep learning, to enjoy challenge, and to tolerate ambiguity. In the end there are no certain answers.
Dare to teach!
Richard Henry Dann
Justice Leland DeGrasse -- NY
A professor can never better distinguish himself in his work than by encouraging a clever pupil, for the true discoverers are among them, as comets amongst the stars.
