than the wealth of the ignorant.

To teach is to learn twice over.
A schoolmaster should have an atmosphere of awe,
and walk wonderingly, as if he was amazed at being himself.

One good teacher in a lifetime may sometimes
change a delinquent into a solid citizen.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
John F. Kennedy
A master can tell you what he expects of you.
A teacher, though, awakens your own expectations.
Never try to teach a pig to sing.... it wastes
your time and annoys the pig.
