A Quote by Lao Tzu on angels, awareness, divinity, immortality, energy, practice, service, students, success, teachers, virtue, and wishes

If you wish to become a divine immortal angel, then restore the angelic qualities of your being through virtue and service. This is the only way to gain the attention of the immortals... These angelic teachers cannot be sought out; it is they who seek out the student. When you succeed in connecting your energy with the divine realm through high awareness and the practice of undiscriminating virtue, the transmission of the ultimate subtle truths will follow.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on service, teachers, truth, words, and worry

The highest truth cannot be put into words. Therefore the greatest teacher has nothing to say. He simply gives himself in service, and never worries.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on individuality, reflection, students, and teachers

When one gives whatever one can without restraint, the barriers of individuality break down. It no longer becomes possible to tell whether it is the student offering himself to the teacher, or the teacher offering herself to the student. One sees only two immaculate beings, reflecting one another like a pair of brilliant mirrors.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on delusion, good, learning, mystery, teachers, and value

The good man is the teacher of the bad,  And the bad is the material from which the good may learn.  He who does not value the teacher,  Or greatly care for the material,  Is greatly deluded although he may be learned.  Such is the essential mystery.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on appreciation, reflection, rest, teachers, virtue, and world

Find a teacher who is an integral being, a beacon who extends his light and virtue with equal ease to those who appreciate him and those who don't. Shape yourself in his mold, bathe in his nourishing radiance, and reflect it out to the rest of the world.

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on men, respect, teachers, and teaching

Whoever would be a teacher of men let him begin by teaching himself before teaching others; and let him teach by example before teaching by word. For he who teaches himself and rectifies his own ways is more deserving of respect and reverence than he who would teach others and rectify their ways.

A Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on action, feeling, good, memory, poetry, and teachers

A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.
