    Teaching Quotes

    Quotations about Teaching

    • The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence.
    • If you would thoroughly know anything, teach it to others.
    • I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.
    • The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.
      The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard, by Anatole France
    • Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
    • Experience teaches only the teachable.
    • Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.
    • For every person who wants to teach there are approximately thirty people who don't want to learn--much.
      And Now All This (1932) introduction, by W. C. Sellar
    • He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.
      Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists", by George Bernard Shaw
