teacher

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on philosophy, belief, doctrine, criteria, buddhism, judgment, tradition, imagine, teacher, examine, analysis, analyze, welfare, beings, and guide

Believe nothing, O monks, just because you have been told it, or it is commonly believed, or because it is traditional or because you yourselves have imagined it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to and take as your guide.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by Wendell Berry on teaching, teacher, education, student, faith, and testimony

A teacher's major contribution may pop out anonymously in the life of some ex-student's grandchild.  A teacher, finally, has nothing to go on but faith, a student nothing to offer in return but testimony.

Wendell Berry (1934 -)

A Quote by PiALOGUE on student, teacher, learning, learn, and teach

Perhaps the only real teacher is the person themselves and perhaps it is only when the person themselves allows themselves to teach themselves that the person truly learns and then both teacher and student appear simultaneously?

A Quote by PiALOGUE on teacher, student, teaching, learning, learn, lesson, pitfalls, strengths, ego, transcend, ignorance, and barriers

I am at the same time both teacher and student mostly teaching myself or at least learning how to learn which may be the most important lesson of all in which case I may be my own best teacher because if I pay close enough attention to myself then I can see my own pitfalls as well as my strengths as long as I ALSO notice the times when my ego is involved and I then transcend my own ignorance and barriers to learning.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on beginners luke, herman melville, reality, imagination, consciousness, drummon light, theater, character, protagonist, teacher, tradition, hope diamond, enlightenment, writing, writing light, literary theory, manifesto, and ars p

Once in every generation, if we’re lucky, a character shows up who can teach us about reality because he’s more real than ourselves. Melville called such a character a “Drummond light” after the type of light once used in theaters that was capable of providing illumination in many directions. May one of us create such a character. Better yet, let’s buck tradition and create a string of Drummond lights, each a brilliant facet of the Hope Diamond that is our new fiction. Let’s turn away, once and for all, from old Enlightenment tropes toward a new narrative of Enwritenment. Together let’s write light.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on self, teacher, life, and love

You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion. You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love. You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things. Choose now to know yourself as these things always.

Neale Donald Walsch

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on teacher and master

 How can one know who his spiritual teacher is?...His heart looks at the spiritual Masters and makes the choice. When the heart sees a spiritual Master, if it is overwhelmed with joy, then there is every probability that that spiritual Master is the right one for the seeker.

A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on teacher, student, education, energy, training, effort, tools, and models

At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.
