You cannot, by all the lecturing in the world, enable a man to make a shoe.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

To teach is to learn twice.
      - Joseph Joubert

Though one devote himself to many teachers, he must extract the essence, as the bee from the flower.
      - Kapila

Give me four years to teach the children, and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
      - Nikolai Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

Tutors should behave reverently before their pupils.
      - Sir Roger L'Estrange

Do not allow your daughters to be taught letters by a man, though he be a St. Paul or St. Francis of Assissium. The saints are in Heaven.
      - Alfonso Maria de Liguori (saint Alphonsus Liguori}

Passionate words or blows from the tutor fill the child's mind with terror and affrightment, which immediately takes it wholly up and leaves no room for other impressions.
      - John Locke (1)

Count it one of the highest virtues upon earth to educate faithfully the children of others, which so few, and scarcely any, do by their own.
      - Martin Luther

Whilst that the childe is young, let him be instructed in vertue and lytterature.
      - John Lyly (Lylie or Lyllie),
        Euphues--The Anatomy of Wit--Of the Education of Youth

It is the duty of a man of honor to teach others the good which he has not been able to do himself because of the malignity of the times, that this good finally can be done by another more loved in heaven.

      - Horace Mann

Education is our only political safety.
      - Horace Mann

Improvement depends far less upon length of tasks and hours of application than is supposed. Children can take in but a little each day; they are like vases with a narrow neck; you may pour little or pour much, but much will not enter at a time.
      - Jules Michelet

Education of youth is not a bow for every man to shoot in that counts himself a teacher; but will require sinews almost equal to those which Homer gave to Ulysses.
      - John Milton

He who honestly instructs reverences God.
      - Mohammed (Mahomet)

A tutor should not be continually thundering instruction into the ears of his pupil, as if he were pouring it through a funnel, but, after having put the lad, like a young horse, on a trot, before him, to observe his paces, and see what he is able to perform, should, according to the extent of his capacity, induce him to taste, to distinguish, and to find out things for himself; sometimes opening the way, at other times leaving it for him to open; and by abating or increasing his own pace, accommodate his precepts to the capacity of his pupil.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

In the education of children there is nothing like alluring the appetites and affection; otherwise you make so many asses laden with books.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Unless a woman has a decided pleasure and facility in teaching, an honest knowledge of everything she professes to impart, a liking for children, and, above all, a strong moral sense of her responsibility towards them, for her to attempt to enroll herself in the scholastic order is absolute profanation.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik)

To be instructed in the arts, softens the manners and makes men gentle.
  [Lat., Adde, quod ingenuas didicisse fideliter artes
    Emollit mores, nec sinit esse fervos.]

  And things unknown propos'd as things forgot.
