If you don't allow one to become a lion, one will become a sheep. And the world is already filled with sheeps, which is the major cause of the society's intellectual and moral downfall. For a better future to evolve, where humanism will be an all-pervading virtue and separatism will be a matter of ancient history, the world needs lions.
Abhijit Naskar

Sow the seeds of weakness and inferiority in the kids and they'll grow up to be inferior, crawling, insignificant insects. Sow the seeds of courage and they'll become brave-heart leaders who will one day change the course of human history.

Adam J. Banks
...anyone still attempting to argue that Ebonics is a problem for black students or that it is somehow connected to a lack of intelligence or lack of desire to achieve is about as useful as a Betamax video cassette player, and it's time for those folks to be retired, be they teachers, administrators, or community leaders, so the rest of us can try to do some real work in the service of equal access for black students and all students. (15)
Alan Bennett
One of the hardest things for boys to learn is that a teacher is human. One of the hardest things for a teacher to learn is not to try and tell them.
Alan Bennett
Pass the parcel. That's sometimes all you can do. Take it, feel it, and pass it on. Not for me, not for you, but for someone, somewhere, one day. Pass it on, boys. That's the game I want you to learn. Pass it on.
Alan Cohen
Be sure you don't lose your happiness teaching others people how to be happy. Your happiness is your teaching.
Alaric Hutchinson
Master Teachers who genuinely embody an enlightened state of being never stop doing the work. The ego is what assumes it knows enough, causing cessation of these daily practices, and therefore, Masters without attachment to ego are forever students of the Universe. The Masters attain an illuminated state of Being as the outcome, yet it is the consistent doing that promotes and maintains their enlightenment.
Alaric Hutchinson
Yes, contrast teaches us a great many things and there is purpose for it. Yet it is time to transcend your everyday dramas that are but drops in an ocean. Cease focusing on your droplets of water and look around you. Everything you say and touch and do sets into motion ripples that either heal and create or curse and destroy. Let me repeat: Everything.
Allan Lokos

Ana Monnar
My plan is to continue teaching many more years than the 32 years I've already enjoyed and continue writing, and promoting my books and websites if it's God will.
Anna Sofia Botkin
As Lenin put it, Through the schools we will transform the old world... the final victory will belong to the schools... the final sketch plan of the socialist society will belong to the schools. So the Frankfurt School targeted and took control of the teachers' colleges in order to control what was being taught to children....young teachers are forced to go through possibly the most rigorous courses of indoctrination available in any universities.
Anne Lamott
When we did art with the kids, the demons would lie down.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Quand tu veux construire un bateau, ne commence pas par rassembler du bois, couper des planches et distribuer du travail, mais reveille au sein des hommes le desir de la mer grande et large.If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
Arthur Schopenhauer
[...] it is rare for aman who teaches to know his subject thoroughly;for if he studies it as he ought, he has in mostcases no time left in which to teach it. [...]
Audre Lorde
The learning process is something you can incite, literally incite, like a riot.
Augustine of Hippo
I probably felt more resentment for what I personally was to suffer than for the wrong they were doing to anyone and everyone. But at that time I was determined not to put up with badly behaved people more out of my own interest than because I wanted them to become good people.
Azar Nafisi
I explained that most great works of the imagination were meant to make you feel like a stranger in your own home. The best fiction always forced us to question what we took for granted. It questioned traditions and expectations when they seemed too immutable. I told my students I wanted them in their readings to consider in what ways these works unsettled them, made them a little uneasy, made them look around and consider the world, like Alice in Wonderland, through different eyes.
Ben Mitchell
I wouldn't have minded school if they taught you important things like how to have good sex and what brand of wine is the best… But for some reason they were hell bent on teaching me algebra
Brian Francis
They're horrible little creatures. All snot and smelly feet and pestering questions.Then why did you go into teaching?It was either that or sit at home with Mother all day. I picked the lesser of two evils.

Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Périgord
To be agreeable in society, you must consent to be taught many things which you already know.
Charlotte Eriksson
This year has taught me the simple craft of belief. I believe in the things I've nurtured and built this year. Slowly but carefully. Such as understanding, knowledge, passion, strength; the hundreds of songs I've written, the 365 poems, the books I've read and the miles I've run. The resolution to breathe, to meditate, to not harm my mind or body even when I've felt like it. 
Chinua Achebe
When mother-cow is chewing grass its young ones watch its mouth
Chris Cleave
Sorry. But it isn't for us to change how things are. I'm just an administrator. You're just a teacher.Oh, I hope I don't teach. Because look what we did: we saved the zoo animals and the nice children and we damned the afflicted and the blacks. You know what I do every day in that classroom? I do everything in my power to make sure those poor souls won't learn the obvious lesson.If I were you, said Tom, I should stick to reading, writing and arithmetic.But what good is it to teach a child to count, if you don't show him that he counts for something?
Christopher Paolini
A person must earn enlightenment, Eragon. It is not handed down to you by others, regardless of how revered they be.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Being a mother is not about 'birthing a child into the world.' Rather, it is about repeatedly 'birthing into the child' a steady sense of their inestimable worth, a prized understanding of their authentic self, a conviction that the impossible is largely the stuff of myth, and an utterly unwavering belief that cold actions of men never represent the warm heart of God. It is the relentless act of birthing these things into the innermost soul of a thirsty child that makes a woman a mother.

To be a philosopher, just reverse everything you have ever been told...and have a sense of humor doing it.
Criss Jami
The only thing more dangerous than ignorance is the pretense of intelligent ignorance. The former is teachable; the latter is not.
Criss Jami
You can never make someone like something they don't like, but you can always help them to better understand it.
Criss Jami
I would rather my descendants have greater abilities and a greater knowledge of the love of Christ than I do, much like standing on one's shoulders in order to get a clearer view of the valley.
Criss Jami
In God's eyes, a man who teaches one truth and nothing else is more righteous than a man who teaches a million truths and one lie.
Criss Jami
There is this common notion that people are shallow and ignorant until they go out and see the world. I, on the other hand, went out and in comparison realized I was in pretty good standing.
Criss Jami
The barrier during self-improvement is not so much that we hate learning, rather we hate being taught. To learn entails that the knowledge was achieved on one's own accord - it feels great - but to be taught often leaves a feeling of inferiority. Thus it takes a bit of determination and a lot of humility in order for one to fully develop.
Criss Jami
People love answers, but only as long as they are the ones who came up with them.
Criss Jami
The survival of poor opinions can make a thinker feel as though he is failing humanity.

An HBCU that is not inherently revolutionary in 2016 is irrelevant.An African American Studies class that is not inherently revolutionary in 2016 is irrelevant.
Darren Shan
Students never appreciate their teachers while they are learning. It is only later, when they know more of the world, that they understand how indebted they are to those who instructed them. Good teachers expect no praise or love from the young. They wait for it, and in time, it comes.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
When people support you when you have done something wrong. It doesnt mean you are right, but it means those people are promoting their hate , bad behavior or living their bad lives through you.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
I dont celebrate any friendship that was build on hate, because we share the common enemy.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Don't make any decision to impress people. They would act like they are impressed to find they are not.They act like they care to find they dont care. They act like they love you and are happy for you to find they are not. Do what makes you happy and let them act the whole time. Knowing you are truly happy by being their director the way you live your life.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Children are no longer being parented, but are raised. Thats why they don't have morals, ethics,humanity and manners, because their parents neglected them. We now live in a society that doesnt care about right or wrong.
De philosopher DJ Kyos
Never justify someones wrong action, without them apologizing first & admitting their wrongs. If you do. You are not making them better, but you are making them worse on the bad things they do.

Debasish Mridha
When you don't know a thing, learn. When you know the truth, teach.
Debasish Mridha
Why do we teach our children to hate others when there are so many options to love? Why do we teach hate when kindness, compassion, tolerance, and harmony add such beauty to life?
Debasish Mridha
I don't teach. I just show them why to learn, what to learn, how to learn, and the ultimate purpose of learning.
Debasish Mridha
Teaching is the best way to learn. Never stop learning.

Like the sun, a teacher enlightens a mind with his love, warmth, and light.
Debasish Mridha
The best thing that I can teach you is to be compassionate and kind to all.
Debasish Mridha
I teach not by feeding the mind with data but by kindling the mind.
Debasish Mridha
A teacher can kindle your mind and let you memorize information, but true education is often self-education.
Debasish Mridha
Teaching is the most powerful force that changes our world one student at a time.
Debasish Mridha M.D.
I am not a teacher; I am a path finder.
Derrick Jensen
This question of grades being coercive, and of politics being inherent in teaching, applies not only to writing, but to all fields. Mathematics, science, economics, history, religion, are all just as deeply and necessarily political. To believe they're not

Donna Quesada
The effects you will have on your students are infinite and currently unknown; you will possibly shape the way they proceed in their careers, the way they will vote, the way they will behave as partners and spouses, the way they will raise their kids.
Donovan L. Graham
School curriculum, learning activities--all educational pursuits--should be characterized by and should lead to a sense and experience of wholeness. (p25)
Donovan L. Graham
Most professional beliefs, especially Christian religious beliefs, are taught through formal, usually verbal, instruction. Such formal instruction may be devoid of personal experience to match the verbal teaching. . . Just as the instruction is verbal, the learner's profession of the belief is verbal.
Donovan L. Graham
the process through which any concept or subject (content) is taught becomes a part of the content. (p19)
Doug Lemov
One of the problems with teaching is that there's a temptation to evaluate what we do in the classroom based on how clever it aligns with a larger philosophy , or even how gratifying it is to use not necessarily how effective it is...
Doug Lemov
There is no such thing a boring content. In the hands of a great teacher...even if as teachers we doubt that we can make it so...this doubt puts us at risk of undercutting it: watering it down or apologizing for teaching it.
Duncan McGrouther
There is no greater virtue than to teach the many what you have been blessed to learn from a few.
E.R. Braithwaite
Today I was a teacher, employed. True, I was also a teacher untried, but that could also be an advantage. I would learn, by God I'd learn. Nothing was going to stop me.
Eberhard Arnold
Only those who look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder.

Real education changes you on the inside.
Eileen Granfors
pencils racing across paper, a sound I like. Marisol
Eleanor Duckworth
Teachers are often, and understandably, impatient for their students to develop clear and adequate ideas. But putting ideas in relation to each other isn't a simple job. It's confusing and this confusion does take time. All of us need time for our confusion if we are to build the breadth and depth that give significance to our knowledge.
Eleanor Duckworth
But it's not the pressure of data that gives rise to the understanding. It's, on the contrary, the child's own struggle to make sense of the data
Elizabeth Gaskell
By degrees they spoke of education , and the book-learning that forms one part of it; and the result was that Ruth determined to get up early all throughout the bright summer mornings, to acquire the knowledge hereafter to be give to her child. Her mind was uncultivated, her reading scant; beyond the mere mechanical arts of education she knew nothing; but she had a refined taste, and excellent sense and judgment to separate the true from the false.
Emily Dickinson
The Truth must dazzle graduallyOr every man be blind - Emily Dickinson
Eraldo Banovac
Life is the greatest teacher because it educates even those who really hate to learn.
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
We shall always meet teachers but we shall seldom meet good teachers. We shall seldom meet a good teacher who is good enough to direct the body, mind and soul towards the path of true purposefulness. We shall hardly meet good teachers who are good enough to leave indelible and distinctive footprints in our minds; good teachers whose words, thoughts, actions and wonderful deeds would continue to reecho themselves in our minds and become the yardstick, guiding principles and reasons for the steps we take each moment of time. We shall always meet teachers but, we shall seldom and hardly meet great teachers!
Frances E. W. Harper
Every mother should endeavor to be a true artist. I do not mean by this that every woman should be a painter, sculptor, musician, poet, or writer, but the artist who will write on the table of childish innocence thoughts she will not blush to see read in the light of eternity and printed amid the archives of heaven, that the young may learn to wear them as amulets around their hearts and throw them as bulwarks around their lives, and that in the hour of temptation and trial the voices from home may linger around their paths as angels of guidance, around their steps, and be incentives to deeds of high and holy worth.
Frank Herbert
Proper teaching is recognized with ease. You can know it without fail because it awakens within you that sensation which tells you this is something you have always known.
Fulton J. Sheen
It is easier to write a book with footnotes than the same book written so that children can understand it.
Fulton J. Sheen
A teacher who cannot explain any abstract subject to a child does not himself thoroughly understand his subject; if he does not attempt to break down his knowledge to fit the child's mind, he does not understand teaching.
Galileo Galilei
You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him find it within himself.
Genereux Philip
I'd rather teach you how to make BREAD than give you a SLICE from my BREAD.
George Pólya
I started studying law, but this I could stand just for one semester. I couldn't stand more. Then I studied languages and literature for two years. After two years I passed an examination with the result I have a teaching certificate for Latin and Hungarian for the lower classes of the gymnasium, for kids from 10 to 14. I never made use of this teaching certificate. And then I came to philosophy, physics, and mathematics. In fact, I came to mathematics indirectly. I was really more interested in physics and philosophy and thought about those. It is a little shortened but not quite wrong to say: I thought I am not good enough for physics and I am too good for philosophy. Mathematics is in between.
Germany Kent
There seems to be a direct correlation between the spike in suicides by young people and the increase in cyberbullying amongst young people.
Germany Kent
Freedom of Speech doesn't justify online bullying. Words have power, be careful how you use them.

Spiritual learners too slowly graduate like students of normal education. If you are mentally elevated, you can grasp and appreciate complex teachings.
Gordon Korman
Ask yourself: 'Do I feel the need to laminate?' Then teaching is for you.
Haroutioun Bochnakian
Our young should be at ease with the fact that every mind works differently, and that there is never an issue if someone's mind is not adapted to this or that subject, or even to this or that manner of teaching or learning.His mind, in whatever manner it needs to function, is a precious stone in humanity's treasure, whether he realizes it or not.
Hartosh Singh Bal
Teaching mathematics, like teaching any art, requires the ability to inspire the student. Inspiration requires marketing, and marketing requires stirring communication.
Henri-Frédéric Amiel
To know how to suggest is the art of teaching.
Herman L Glaess
Learning means change and change is usually difficult.
Hermann Hesse
Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else ... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.
Howard Nemerov
[T]eaching has been for me an education (Lord knows what it has been for my students).
Idries Shah
Someone says that I haven't taught him anything that he can remember. He can't understand yet that that's precisely what I am aiming at…
Idries Shah
Correct teaching brings out human excellence.
Immanuel Kant
...[M]oral instruction, although containing much that is convincing for the reason, ...accomplishes... little... [because] the teachers themselves have not got their own notions clear, and when they endeavor to make up for this by raking up motives of moral goodness from every quarter, trying to make their physic right strong, they spoil it.
Immanuel Kant
Since in early youth it cannot be known what ends are likely to occur to us in the course of life, parents seek to have their children taught a great many things, and provide for their skill in the use of means for all sorts of arbitrary ends, of none of which can they determine whether it may not perhaps hereafter be an object to determine their pupil, but which it is at all events possible that he might aim at; and this anxiety is so great that they commonly neglect to form and correct their judgement on the value of the things which may be chosen as ends.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't leave people empty handed. They give them part of themselves through knowledge sharing and influence creation.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are raised through training and experience. Nobody was born naturally with hand-gloves of leadership. We come to life to search for it, discover it and optimize it.
Israelmore Ayivor
The essence of one life is empowering another life, and so your passion has to be linked to the liberation of other people's happiness.
Israelmore Ayivor
You don't miss great leaders because their impacts and footprints are always staring at you in the face.
Israelmore Ayivor
A self-leader cries for no followers by himself. He does his thing and people get to know him, chase him and learn from him.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders don't hide good news from their followers. As long as they discover knowledge, they share knowledge. They leave part of them with people they meet; hence they are hardly missed when they are gone.
Ivan Illich
Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting. Most people learn best by being with it, yet school makes them identify their personal, cognitive growth with elaborate planning and manipulation.
J.K. Rowling
This is precisely why I loathed being a teacher! Young people are so infernally convinced that they are absolutely right about everything. Has it not occurred to you, my poor puffed-up poppinjay, that there might be an excellent reason why the Headmaster of Hogwarts is not confiding every tiny detail of his plans to you? Have you never paused, while feeling hard-done-by, to note that following Dumbledore's orders has never yet led you into harm? No. No, like all young people, you are quite sure that you alone feel and think, you alone recognise danger, you alone are the only one clever enough to realise what the Dark Lord may be planning.
Jacques Barzun
Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition.
Jasper Fforde
I've managed to bring the backlog down to a mere sixty-eight years, she announced with some small sense of achievement. I hope to be able to start marking the papers of pupils who are still alive by the end of the decade.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Real learning comes about when the competitive spirit has ceased.
Jill Telford
It doesn't matter the materials but what you do and how you interact. Relationships are the most important in the art of teaching. A school can have the most beautiful stuff but it's the care and commitment of a teacher. What matters most is a true teacher with the real stuff inside and helping others discover that real stuff inside themselves.
Jill Telford
They say you can tell a lot about a country by the way it treats its prisoners…I believe the same can be said for how a country treats its children
Jim Henson
[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.
John Pearson
Jack Woodson is currently living and working in Dallas, TX. He has forty children, and all of them have different mothers.
John Dewey
Give the pupils something to do, not something to learn; and the doing is of such a nature as to demand thinking; learning naturally results.
John Grogan
A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.
John Holt
schools assume that children are not interested in learning and are not much good at it, that they will not learn unless made to, that they cannot learn unless shown how, and that the way to make them learn is to divide up the prescribed material into a sequence of tiny tasks to be mastered one at a time, each with it's approrpriate 'morsel' and 'shock.' And when this method doesn't work, the schools assume there is something wrong with the children -- something they must try to diagnose and treat.
John Holt
Over the years, I have noticed that the child who learns quickly is adventurous. She's ready to run risks. She approaches life with arms outspread. She wants to take it all in. She still has the desire of the very young child to make sense out of things. She's not concerned with concealing her ignorance or protecting herself. She's ready to expose herself to disappointment and defeat. She has a certain confidence. She expects to make sense out of things sooner or later. She has a kind of trust.
John Horne Burns
She saw why teachers get very old and stay very young. For there is no closer probing of the mind--not even in psychoanalysis.

Learning to read is probably the most difficult and revolutionary thing that happens to the human brain and if you don't believe that, watch an illiterate adult try to do it.
John Wyndham
We are explorers. We are at present, as far as we know, the only explorers of the universe. For a long time we thought that ours was the only planet that could support life. Then we found others that could

Judy Cornish
Offering care means being a companion, not a superior. It doesn't matter whether the person we are caring for is experiencing cancer, the flu, dementia, or grief.If you are a doctor or surgeon, your expertise and knowledge comes from a superior position. But when our role is to be providers of care, we should be there as equals.
Julian of Norwich
But for I am a woman should I therefore live that I should not tell you the goodness of God?
Kahlil Gibran
No man can reveal to you aught but that which already lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.The teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among his followers, gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness.If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.
Kamand Kojouri
Do not give them a candle to light the way, teach them how to make fire instead. That is the meaning of enlightenment.
Kamand Kojouri
The guilt you felt when you were smiling and others were suffering, the guilt you felt when you were petty with friends and impatient with your parents, when you were rude to your teachers and didn't stand up for strangers, that guilt is marvellous. It proves that you are human, that you want to be better. Thank this guilt for teaching you, for making you aware. And now endeavour to better yourself. It is a lifelong work to become the person we want to be.
Kathy Degraw
My God can do it! My God will do it! My God wants to do it! My God has done it!
Kimberly Hill Campbell
My task as a language arts teacher is to provide texts that are not so difficult that my students shut down in frustration and not so easy that my students don't push their thinking.
Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
As Mary delivered what was to be her last lecture about the Galapagos Islands, she would be stopped mid-sentence for five seconds by a doubt which, if expressed in words, might have come out something like this: Maybe I'm just a crazy lady who had wandered off the street and into this classroom and started explaining the mysteries of life to these people. And they believe me, although I am utterly mistaken about simply everything.She had to wonder, too, about all the supposedly great teachers of the past, who, although their brains were healthy, had turned out to be as wrong as Roy about what was really going on.
Kyos Magupe
To lovers there.Most ladies the reason they are dumped and their relationship doesn't last is they made themselves to become a want than a need in a relationship.

We can do what we ought to do, only by great grace that comes from God.
Lance Conrad
Teachers see coldness in the world and light fires in the minds of their students, hoping for a warm summer. Sadly, some cannot bear the flame, some turn away from the heat, and some twist the fire to burn.
Lao Tzu
The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.
Laurence Overmire
There is no nobler profession, nor no greater calling, than to be among those unheralded many who gave and give their lives to the preservation of human knowledge, passed with commitment and care from one generation to the next.
Lemony Snicket
The expression 'Those who can't do, teach' is a curious one, because if you look at the world , you'll see that teachers aren't particularly worse at doing things than anyone else, so perhaps the expression might be better worded as 'nobody can do anything
Loris Malaguzzi
Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.
Ludvig Holberg
Guld er Guld, hvor det end findes, og Lærdom er Lærdom, af hvis Mund den end flyder; Forskiellen alleene kand være, at dens Lærdom, hvis Levnet svarer dertil, opbygger meer, end en andens, der intet andet haver at beraabe sig paa, uden paa den Ære at være indskreven udi Kirkens Matricul, og at han haver faaet Ret til at igiennemhegle Mennesker for det, som han dagligen selv øver.
Malala Yousafzai
One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.

Words are great, but actions speak louder!

Try ONE behavior strategy and be consistent. Watch what happens.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
When you wish to instruct, be brief; that men's [children's] minds take in quickly what you say, learn its lesson, and retain it faithfully. Every word that is unnecessary only pours over the side of a brimming mind.
Marian Wright Edeleman
Parents have become so convinced educators know what is best for children that they forget that they themselves are really the experts.
Mario Sergio Cortella
Todo professor íntegro leciona por paixão. Paixão pelo quê? Por ganhar pouco, correr o dia inteiro, ficar para lá e para cá? Não, claro que não. Temos paixão por aquela ideia de que gente foi feita para ser feliz.
Mark Seidenberg
American attitudes toward teachers are frankly incoherent. We want outstanding people to enter the field but provide little incentive to do so. We expect teachers to be able to educate every child, including one for whom the obstacles to learning originate outside the school. They should be able to do this without adequate training, having figured it out on their own.
Mark Van Doren
I have always had the greatest respect for students. There is nothing I hate more than condescension
Martin Luther
I am afraid that the schools will prove the very gates of hell, unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures and engraving them in the heart of the youth.
Marva Collins
What all good teachers have in common, however, is that they set high standards for their students and do not settle for anything less.
Michael Bassey Johnson
Education will teach you ephemeral things. God will teach you wonders.
Michelle Casto
The only person who is spiritually smart is the one who has learned how to learn, unlearn, and change directions instantly, and start all over again, if your soul calls for it.
Ming-Dao Deng
All teachings are mere references. The true experience is living your own life. Then, even the holiest of words are only words.
Mischa Temaul
Feed two birds with one crumb.
Mohammed Zaki Ansari
your lack of knowledge may not for you but surely it is dangerous for your child because you cannot teach them which you your self do not know
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
The more you know, the less you talk. The less you talk, the more you know.
Munia Khan
In old days, instead of asking a teacher, people looked at the dictionary to know the complete definition of teacher. Now Google becomes our teacher and to know about Google, people Google it.
Munia Khan
Let my toes teach the shore how to feel a tranquil lifethrough the wetness of sands Let my heart latch the doorof blackness, as all my pain now blue sky understands
Muriel Spark
The word education comes from the root e from ex, out, and duco, I lead. It means a leading out. To me education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul.
Nancy Atwell
For students of every ability and background, it is the simply miraculous act of reading a good book that turns them into readers. The job of adults who care about reading is to move heaven and earth to put that book into a child's hands.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I would teach how science works as much as I would teach what science knows. I would assert (given that essentially, everyone will learn to read) that science literacy is the most important kind of literacy they can take into the 21st century. I would undervalue grades based on knowing things and find ways to reward curiosity. In the end, it's the people who are curious who change the world.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
People cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey schoolteacher asserted that evolution and the Big Bang are not scientific and that Noah's ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it's about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.
Nel Noddings
[S]cience has contributed a great deal to war and violence, and people well trained in science are sometimes not entirely rational and are even dogmatic. We have to find a way to teach reflectively, not just scientifically.
Nel Noddings
It still amazes me that we insist on teaching algebra to all students when only about 20 percent will ever use it and fail to teach anything about parenting when the vast majority of our students will become parents.
Nick Harkaway
People don't want children to know what they need to know. They want their kids to know what they ought to need to know. If you're a teacher you're in a constant battle with mildly deluded adults who think the world will get better if you imagine it is better. You want to teach about sex? Fine, but only when they're old enough to do it. You want to talk politics? Sure, but nothing modern. Religion? So long as you don't actually think about it. Otherwise some furious mob will come to your house and burn you for a witch.
Nikos Kazantzakis
True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create theirown.
Orson Scott Card
...you seemed to be listening to me, not to find out useful information, but to try to catch me in a logical fallacy. This tells us all that you are used to being smarter than your teachers, and that you listen to them in order to catch them making mistakes and prove how smart you are to the other students. This is such a pointless, stupid way of listening to teachers that it is clear you are going to waste months of our time before you finally catch on that the only transaction that matters is a transfer of useful information from adults who possess it to children who do not, and that catching mistakes is a criminal misuse of time.
P.C. Cast
Don't fuck with an English major. They keep lots of useless crap trapped in their heads. Once in a while they let some of it out and it bites you square on the ass.
Pat Conroy
The reading of great books has been a life-altering activity to me and, for better or worse, brought me singing and language-obsessed to that country where I make my living. Except for teaching, I've had no other ambition in life than to write books that mattered.
Paul Gitwaza
Trials teach us patience and patience leads us to a place of hope
Paulo Freire
The teacher is of course an artist, but being an artist does not mean that he or she can make the profile, can shape the students. What an educator does in teaching is to make it possible for the students to become themselves.
