I was not addicted to stealing in my youth, nor have ever been; yet such was the confidence of the Negroes in the neighborhood, even at this early period of my life, in my superior judgment, that they would often carry me with them when they were going on any roguery, to plan for them.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

I think I have a superior brain and an inferior stature, if you really want to get brutal about it.
