To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching. To attain it we must be able to guess what will interest; we must learn to read the childish soul as we might a piece of music. Then, by simply changing the key, we keep up the attraction and vary the song.
Best Quotes about Teacher

I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
There is no human reason why a child should not admire and emulate his teacher's ability to do sums, rather than the village bum's ability to whittle sticks and smoke cigarettes. The reason why the child does not is plain enough -- the bum has put himself on an equality with him and the teacher has not.
In teaching others we teach ourselves.

A schoolteacher or professor cannot educate individuals, he educates only species.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.
The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. In our system, she must become a passive, much more than an active, influence, and her passivity shall be composed of anxious scientific curiosity and of absolute respect for the phenomenon which she wishes to observe. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.
Most subjects at universities are taught for no other purpose than that they may be re-taught when the students become teachers.
Lichtenberg, Georg C.

Doren, Mark Van
Those who go to college and never get out are called professors.
Unless we do his teachings, we do not demonstrate faith in him.
Benson, Ezra Taft
The world of knowledge takes a crazy turn when teachers themselves are taught to learn.
The truth is that the average schoolmaster, on all the lower levels, is and always must be essentially and next door to an idiot, for how can one imagine an intelligent man engaging in so puerile an avocation?
Mencken, H. L.
Morality sticks faster when presented in brief sayings than when presented in long discourse.
Woe to him who teaches men faster than they can learn.
Durant, William J.
Teaching is of more importance than urging.
Never offer to teach a fish to swim.
To be good is noble, but to teach others how to be good is nobler and less trouble.

We must view young people not as empty bottles to be filled, but as candles to be lit.
Shaffer, Robert H.

Arrogance, pedantry, and dogmatism... the occupational diseases of those who spend their lives directing the intellects of the young.
Canby, Henry S.
Life is amazing: and the teacher had better prepare himself to be a medium for that amazement.
Why are we never quite at ease in the presence of a schoolmaster? Because we are conscious that he is not quite at his ease in ours. He is awkward, and out of place in the society of his equals. He comes like Gulliver from among his little people, and he cannot fit the stature of his understanding to yours.
Teaching is the greatest act of optimism.

Your Master Teacher knows all you need to learn, the perfect timing for your learning it, and the ideal way of teaching it to you. You don't create a Master Teacher -- that's already been done. You discover your Master Teacher.
The first duty of a lecturer is to hand you after an hour's discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks and keep on the mantelpiece forever.
You can't teach a hunter it's wrong to kill.
Baba, Hari Dass
What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.
Shaw, George Bernard
To teach is to learn twice.
Good teaching must be slow enough so that it is not confusing, and fast enough so that it is not boring.
Harris, Sidney J.
