Ignorance

There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till.

Ralph Waldo Emerson


Imitation

The function of education is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but be yourself all the time.

Jiddu Krishnamurti


In the end

That is the difference between good teachers and great teachers: good teachers make the best of a pupil's means; great teachers foresee a pupil's ends.

Maria Callas


Information

Information cannot replace education.

Earl Kiole


Inspiration

We all need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.

Instruction

Instruction begins when you, the teacher, learn from the learner; put yourself in his place so that you may understand what he learns and the way he understands it.

Soren Kierkegaard
