Henry B. Adams
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
An understanding heart is everything in a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
A good teacher must be able to put himself in the place of those who find learning hard.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The whole secret of the teacher’s force lies in the conviction that men are convertible.
John Henrik Clarke
A good teacher, like a good entertainer first must hold his audience’s attention; then he can teach his lesson.
A teacher enlarges people in all sorts of ways besides just his subject matter.
There is no teacher, living or past, who can give us the actual understanding of truth. A teacher can only put our feet upon the path and point the way. That is all. It is wholly dependent on the individual to make his way to truth.
A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though awakens your own expectations.
As the twig is bent the tree inclines.
