If it were admitted that the great object is to read and enjoy a language, and the stress of the teaching were placed on the few things absolutely essential to this result, all might in their own way arrive there, and rejoice in its flowers.
Harriet Beecher Stowe quotes
The teacher must derive not only the capacity, but the desire, to observe natural phenomena. The teacher must understand and feel her position of observer: the activity must lie in the phenomenon.
Maria Montessori quotes
One man practicing sportsmanship is better than a hundred teaching it.
Knute Rockne quotes
Dear Miss ÖI have read about sixteen pages of your manuscript ... I suffered exactly the same treatment at the hands of my teachers who disliked me for my independence and passed over me when they wanted assistants ... keep your manuscript for your sons and daughters, in order that they may derive consolation from it and not give a damn for what their teachers tell them or think of them. ... There is too much education altogether.
Albert Einstein quotes
Science urges us to occupy by our mind the immensity of the knowable world; our spiritual teacher enjoins us to comprehend by our soul the infinite spirit which is in the depth of the moving and changing facts of the world; the urging of our artistic nature is to realize the manifestation of personality in the world of appearance, the reality of existence which is in harmony with the real within us. Where this harmony is not deeply felt, there we are aliens and perpetually homesick. For man by nature is an artist; he never receives passively and accurately in his mind a physical representation of things around him.
Rabindranath Tagore quotes
Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher.
The English have no respect for their language, and will not teach their children to speak it.
George Bernard Shaw quotes
Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.
Albert Einstein quotes
Maybe Iíll live my whole life just getting by. Maybe Iíll be discovered; maybe Iíll be colonized. You could try to train me like a pet, you could try to teach me to behave, Iíll tell you that I havenít learned it yet, I ainít goona sit, I ainít goona stay.
Ani Difranco quotes
My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it. I never did like to work, and I don't deny it. I'd rather read, tell stories, crack jokes, talk, laugh - anything but work.
Abraham Lincoln quotes
