Teaching

Famous quotes containing the word teaching:

    What is all wisdom save a collection of platitudes? Take fifty of our current proverbial sayings—they are so trite, so threadbare, that we can hardly bring our lips to utter them. None the less they embody the concentrated experience of the race and the man who orders his life according to their teaching cannot go far wrong.
    Norman Douglas (1868–1952)

    The most important part of teaching = to teach what it is to know.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)

    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-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)
