A Quote by Joe J. Christensen on audiences, friendship, god, good, questions, students, and teachers

Questions to ask yourself: Are you a good teacher? Who would know? You would. Your students. Your friends. Your God. Not a bad audience, that!

Joe J. Christensen (1929 -)

A Quote by Jean Paul Richter on army, character, friendship, individuality, influence, life, nations, spirit, teachers, and work

In later life, as in earlier, only a few persons influence the formation of our character; the multitude pass us by like a distant army. One friend, one teacher, one beloved, one club, one dining table, one work table are the means by which one's nation and the spirit of one's nation affect the individual.

A Quote by Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet on children, death, god, ignorance, learning, love, schools, teachers, and universe

I love to thik of my little children whom God has called to himself as away at school-at the best school in the universe, under the best teachers, learning the best things, in the best possible manner. O death! We thank thee for the light that thou wilt shed upon our ignorance.

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on christianity, conceit, devil, evil, god, greed, humility, lies, mind, morality, opposites, pride, teachers, vices, and virtue

The vice I am talking about is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. You may remember, when I was talking about sexual morality, I warned you that the centre of Christian morals did not lie there. Well, now we have come to the centre. According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea-bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.

A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on adoption, destiny, education, family, future, preparation, presidency, questions, society, spirituality, teachers, and truth

Jiddu Krishnamurti was born on 11 May, 1895, at Madanapalle, a small village in south India. Soon after moving to Madras with his family in 1909, Krishnamurti was adopted by Mrs. Annie Besant, President of the Theosophical Society. She was convinced that he was to become a great spiritual teacher. Three years later she took him to England to be educated in preparation for his future role. An organization was set up to promote this role. In 1929, after many years of questioning himself and the destiny imposed upon him, Krishnamurti disbanded this organisation, turning away all followers saying: Truth is a pathless land. . . .

Who wants to compare, as if this was a competition? Leave that to teachers at school, must preserve their tradition.

A Quote by Horace Mann on desires, learning, and teachers

A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron.
