- Teaching by Gail Godwin

Passive acceptance of the teacher’s wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man.  Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life.  It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.

- Bertrand Russell Quotes

Teachers open the door.  You enter by yourself.

- Chinese Proverb

He who can, does.  He who cannot, teaches.

- George Bernard Shaw Quote
