A Quote by Heber J. Grant on facts, friendship, presidency, pride, teachers, writing, and youth

Regarding Heber J. Grant's penmanship: As a youth, President Heber J. Grant's penmanship was so poor that when two of his friends looked at it, one said to the other, "That writing looks like hen tracks." "No," said the other, "it looks as if lightning has struck an ink bottle." This, of course, touched Heber Grant's pride, and he worked so diligently, so hard on it, that, while still in his teens and working as a policy clerk in the office of H. R. Mann and Co., he was offered three times his salary to go to San Francisco as a penman. He later became a teacher of penmanship and bookkeeping at the University of Deseret. In fact, with a specimen he had written before he turned seventeen, he took first prize in a territorial fair against four professional penmen.

A Quote by George Polyá on argument, books, duty, good, opportunity, problems, solution, students, teachers, understanding, and work

Even fairly good students, when they have obtained the solution of the problem and written down neatly the argument, shut their books and look for something else. Doing so, they miss an important and instructive phase of the work. . . . A good teacher should understand and impress on his students the view that no problem whatever is completely exhausted. One of the first and foremost duties of the teacher is not to give his students the impression that mathematical problems have little connection with each other, and no connection at all with anything else. We have a natural opportunity to investigate the connections of a problem when looking back at its solution.

A Quote by George Macdonald on christ, church, day, foolishness, giving, god, heresy, laziness, learning, men, mind, sons, spirit, teachers, present, and world

There is more hid in Christ than we shall ever learn, here or there either; but they that begin first to inquire will soonest be gladdened with revelation; and with them He will be best pleased, for the slowness of His disciples troubled Him of old. To say that we must wait for the other world, to know the mind of Him who came t o this world to give Himself to us, seems to me the foolishness of a worldly and lazy spirit. The Son of God is the teacher of men, giving to them of His Spirit - that Spirit which manifests the deep things of God, being to a man the mind of Christ. The great heresy of the Church of the present day is unbelief in this Spirit.

A Quote by Gary Zukav on awareness, guidance, projects, soul, and teachers

The number of teachers and guides that a soul has depends upon what it seeks to accomplish and its level of awareness. Souls that take upon themselves projects of more magnitude bring to themselves more assistance.
