A Quote by Donald D. Quinn on teachers and teaching

"If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn't want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher's job."

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on wisdom and teachers

If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on acceptance, agreement, authority, belief, books, elderly, generations, good, observation, reason, religion, rumor, teachers, and traditions

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

A Quote by unknown on elysha, being, advaita, guru, teachers, energy, mind, and freedom

This "you" of you that "you" are is already and energetically flowing through the very eyes of this mindbody that you find yourself being so intimately involved with and flowing through right now. You are going to have to be able to find it and then stop at and as it until you are deeply at rest in and as it for consecutive moments together. This is what has you being this "you" of you that "you" are - nothing less.

A Quote by Mamkhai Norbu Rinpoche on bee, flowers, teachings, deer, quiet, alone, seclusion, and teachers

From all kinds of flowers,
Seek teachings everywhere,
Like a deer that finds
A quiet place to graze,
Seek Seclusion to digest
All you have gathered. . .

A Quote by Kent Nerburn on age, patience, teachers, elders, lessons, and change

It is not easy for a man to be as great as a mountain or a forest.  But that is why the creator gave them to us as teachers.  Now that I am old I Iook once more toward them for lessons, instead of trying to understand the ways of men. They tell me to be patient.  They tell me I cannot change what is, I can only hope to change what will become.  Let the grasses grow over our scars, they say, and let flowers bloom over our wounds.

A Quote by unknown on child, taught, happy, love, fear, hatred, prejudice, taught, condition, world, good, and teachers

A child does not have to be taught how to be happy or the ways of love.  It is fear, hatred, and prejudice that have to be taught.  And from the condition of the world we can see that unfortunately there are some very good teachers.

A Quote by George Leonard on mastery, 5 keys to mastery, guides, and teachers

What if you're practicing wrong? Then you get very good at doing something wrong. If we don't get good instruction, then we don't notice when it's a little out of round. Surrender yourself to your teacher. That's doesn't mean you turn over your life to the teacher - you don't want a guru. You have to keep the autonomy within yourself. You are finally the ultimate authority on your own practice.
