- Snow, Dan

In our world of big names, curiously, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knownness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, the nurse, the mother, the honest cop, the hard worker at lonely, underpaid, unglamorous, unpublicized jobs.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.

Teachers open the door. You enter by yourself.

- Chinese Proverb

No earthly teacher is flawless. If you limit yourself to learning according to the exact mindset of the teacher, you will also inherit his flaws.

- Joseph J. Dewey

- Einstein, Albert

Life is amazing: and the teacher had better prepare himself to be a medium for that amazement.

- Blishen, Edward

In later life, as in earlier, only a few persons influence the formation of our character; the multitude pass us by like a distant army. One friend, one teacher, one beloved, one club, one dining table, one work table are the means by which one's nation and the spirit of one's nation affect the individual.

- Jean Paul Richter
