A Quote by Henry Brooks Adams on teacher, student, education, energy, training, effort, tools, and models

At the utmost, the active-minded young man should ask of his teacher only mastery of his tools. The young man himself, the subject of education, is a certain form of energy; the object to be gained is economy of his force; the training is partly the clearing away of obstacles, partly the direct application of effort. Once acquired, the tools and models may be thrown away.

Henry Adams (1838 - 1918)

A Quote by Aristotle on art, excellence, habits, virtue, training, and act

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation: we do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Aristotle (384 - 322 BC)
