A Quote by Nathan M. Pusey on driving, emotion, facts, imagination, learning, life, meaning, patience, sympathy, and teachers

The teacher's task is not to implant facts but to place the subject to be learned in front of the learner and, through sympathy,emotion, imagination and patience, to awaken in the learner the restless drive for answers and insights which enlarge the personal life and give it meaning.

A Quote by Lucretia Coffin Mott on custom, education, injustice, learning, men, schools, sex, teachers, and women

Learning, while at school, that the charge for the education of girls was the same as that for boys, and that, when they became teachers, women received only half as much as men for their services, the injustice of this distinction was so apparent, that I resolved to claim for my sex all that an impartial Creator had bestowed, which, by custom and a perverted application of the Scriptures, had been wrested from women.

A Quote by Leon Henkin on books, ideas, mathematics, nature, problems, questions, students, and teachers

One of the big misapprehensions about mathematics that we perpetrate in our classrooms is that the teacher always seems to know the answer to any problem that is discussed. This gives students the idea that there is a book somewhere with all the right answers to all of the interesting questions, and that teachers know those answers. And if one could get hold of the book, one would have everything settled. That's so unlike the true nature of mathematics.
