If it is true that the future of a country lies in the hands of its youth, then it is equally true that the future of the youth is shaped by their teachers.
5th September is the day dedicated to the teachers.
A great teacher is like a great artist, who ignites the minds, makes a subject interesting and engrossing, and inspires students to explore the subject and its application in greater details.
Like a potter shapes the clay, good teachers have the ability to mould students and shape up their personality by influencing their thinking.
Here are 8 inspirational quotes on teachers.
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein
The teachers that we remember are generally not those who merely informed or explained a subject but those who got us enthused about a subject, which we otherwise might not have cared about.
Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system. ~ Dan Rather
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. ~ William Arthur Ward
There are two kinds of teachers: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can’t move, and the kind that just gives you a little prod behind and you jump to the skies. ~ Robert Frost
Just like a skilled eye recognizes a diamond in the rough, a great teacher on interacting with a student recognizes the talent of the student even before the student recognizes his own talent. The teacher then guides the students, helps them refine their talent and unlock their potential.
The most intriguing people you will encounter in this life are the people who had insights about you, that you didn’t know about yourself. ~ Shannon L. Alder
You can find anyone that will tell you what you want to hear, but the only one worth valuing is the one that tells you what you need to learn. ~ Shannon L. Alder
Life itself is a great teacher, provided we are willing to learn from our experiences, rather than regretting our mistakes.
Regard mistakes as teachers, not judges ! ~ Tae Yun Kim.
But as Mark Twain said
It is noble to teach oneself, but still nobler to teach others–and less trouble. ~ Mark Twain
