Learning is by nature curiosity…prying into everything, reluctant to leave anything, material or immaterial, unexplained.
All children are gifted. Some just open their presents later than others.
A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in the world, as one which enables him to sustain a failure.
-Bernard Iddings Bell
I hear, I forget, I see, I learn; I do, I understand.
-Gennady V. Oster
Why teach? Why die Prometheus steal fire only to turn around and give it away? There is an internal generosity in the human spirit-one of its faces is the face of the teacher.
I doubt that I could be a teacher in a modern school, and for good reason. In my day parents and administrators both supported my efforts to be the best teacher possible; today it seems that teachers are not supported anymore, and I doubt that I could fight undefended.
-James A. Michener
