I am convinced that everything that is worth while in the world has been accomplished by the free, inquiring, critical spirit... But the men of ritual and the men of barbarism are capable of shutting up the men of science and of silencing them forever." — Sinclair Lewis, from It Can't Happen Here

A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on a cold iron... Horace Mann
A teacher is a facilitator of learning, a curator of content, and most of all, a motivator of learning... D. B. Phatak
Teacher vs Guru
