TEACHERS
[ Also see Education Learning Students Teaching ]

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
      - Henry Brooks Adams

Teachers who educate children deserve more honor than parents who merely gave birth; for bare life is furnished by the one, the other ensures a good life.
      - Aristotle

We lov'd the doctrine for the teachers sake.
      - Daniel Defoe

A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.
      - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A good teacher is a determined person.
      - Gilbert Highet

A teacher must believe in the value and interest of his subject as a doctor believes in health.
      - Gilbert Highet

A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.
      - Horace Mann

A professor must have a theory as a dog must have fleas.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

During the majority of his waking hours he is in close association with his pupils, who are admittedly his inferiors, and so he rapidly acquires the familiar, self-satisfied professorial attitude of mind.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

School teachers, taking them by and large, are probably the most ignorant and stupid class of men in the whole group of mental workers.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

The average schoolmaster is, and always must be, an ass.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

We teachers can only help the work going on, as servants wait upon a master.
      - Maria Montessori

No one saves us but ourselves;
  No one can and no one may,
    We ourselves must walk the Path,
      Teachers merely show the way.
      - Nancy Wilson Ross,
        The Return of Lady Brace

No saves us but ourselves;
  No one can and no one may,
    We ourselves must walk the Path,
      Teachers merely show the way.
      - Nancy Wilson Ross,
        The Return of Lady Brace
