When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge.
One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes change a delinquent into a solid citizen.
I touch the future. I teach.
The five steps in teaching an employee new skills are preparation, explanation, showing, observation and supervision.
Teaching is the only major occupation of man for which we have not yet developed tools that make an average person capable of competence and performance. In teaching we rely on the 'naturals', the ones who somehow know how to teach.
The thing I loved the most - and still love the most about teaching - is that you can connect with an individual or a group, and see that individual or group exceed their limits.
I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.
Alexander the Great
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything - even mountains, rivers, plants and trees - should be your teacher.
I cannot emphasize enough the importance of a good teacher.
It is by teaching that we teach ourselves, by relating that we observe, by affirming that we examine, by showing that we look, by writing that we think, by pumping that we draw water into the well.
Henri Frederic Amiel

I saw as a teacher how, if you take that spark of learning that those children have, and you ignite it, you can take a child from any background to a lifetime of creativity and accomplishment.
I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers.
We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.
A child's learning is a function more of the characteristics of his classmates than those of the teacher.
James S. Coleman
Every bit of me is devoted to love and art. And I aspire to try to be a teacher to my young fans who feel just like I felt when I was younger. I just felt like a freak. I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm trying to liberate them, I want to free them of their fears and make them feel that they can make their own space in the world.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
