Jesus taught us many things. But so did Muhammad and Buddha and countless others. You don't need priests or prophets to teach you. People and events in your life can teach you.

A Quote by Swami Vivekananda on life, living, teaching, and wisdom

You cannot teach a child any more than you can grow a plant. All you can do is on the negative side - you can only help. It is a manifestation from within; it develops its own nature - you can only take away obstructions.

A Quote by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi on buddhism, self, teacher, and teaching

The purpose of studying Buddhism is not to study Buddhism, but to study ourselves. That is why we have teaching. But the teaching is not ourselves. It is some explanation of ourselves. To study the teaching is to know yourselves. That is why we do not ever attach to the teaching, or to the teacher. The moment you meet a teacher you should leave the teacher, and you should be independent. You want a teacher so that you can be independent. So you study yourselves. You have the teacher for yourselves, not for the teacher.

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 Dallin H. Oaks on thanks, hardships, adversity, trials, purpose, learn, grow, opposition, challenges, teaching, afflictions, and bless

"When we give thanks in all things, we see hardships and adversities in the context of the purpose of life... We are meant to learn and grow through opposition, through meeting our challenges, and through teaching others to do the same... the Lord will not only consecrate our afflictions for our gain, but He will use them to bless the lives of countless others."

A Quote by Peter O. Erbe on contrast, polarities, and teaching

"Contrast within polarites is a teaching aid and, being that and only that, the message it carries with it shoud be clear: its task is to show what to avoid and what to seek, the contrast lessens. Of course, for each time polarities are embraced they are unified and for this alone cannot present a contrast any more."

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on teaching, whole life, thoughts, learning, and love

    Every human being is as special as every other human being who has ever lived, lives now, or every will live. You are all meesengers. Every one of you. You are carrying a message to life about life every day. Every hour. Every moment.
    Everything you think, say, and do is a message. Your whole life is your teaching. If you thought that others, tomorrow, would walk in the path that you have taken today, would you take the same path?
    You may think that people do not look to you, but they do. More people than you know. Everyone, in fact whose life you touch is touched by your example. You are giving them data about life. You are telling them how it is, how things operate, how things are, and they will emulate you, they will copy you, they will take your data into their world and make it part of their own lives.
    Your family will do this. All people, family or not, who see you and know of you and are touched by you, will do this.
    Your neighbors will do this. Your nation will do this. You are the nation. The nation is made up of you. You are your religion. Your religion is made up of you.
    Everything starts with you.
    You are the first domino. All the rest of the dominoes fall when you do. What you "fall for" is what they'll fall for! Therefore, don't fall for anything...but, rather, fall in.
    Fall in step with your highest self, for your highest self steps on the Path. Fall in line with your grandest thoughts, for your grandest thoughts lead you to that Path. Fall in love, for love is that Path. Then, watch things fall into place, all because of you.

A Quote by Jeff Immelt on ceo and teaching

If you weren't CEO, what would you really love to be doing?

In some next life, I want to do something where I could give back. Teaching is one way. I would probably teach business, somewhere, someplace, somehow. I'd love to say I could teach math, but I can't even help my daughter with that.
