Experience teaches only the teachable.

Aldous Huxley

Teachers open the door. You enter by yourself.

Chinese Proverb

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

Robert A. Heinlein

I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.

Albert Einstein

He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.

George Bernard Shaw

For every person who wants to teach there are approximately thirty people who don't want to learn-much.

W. C. Sellar and R. J. Yeatman

In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community spirit. In the demon-haunted world that we inhabit by virtue of being human, this may be all that stands between us and the enveloping darkness.

Carl Sagan

History is philosophy teaching by example, and also warning; its two eyes are geography and chronology.

James A. Garfield

Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.

Albert Einstein

It's hard to get through a day without a child feeling some type of frustration. Yet, parents typically do such a poor job teaching children how to express anger in a healthy way. I provide parents with many useful tips for learning to prevent and manage a child's anger.

Toni Schutta

You can't spend your whole life teaching people about public service without finally thinking that you should put your money where your mouth is.

Michael Ignatieff

I think our community programs have been extraordinary. Our after-school and summer programs have been very successful, and they really help grow the game in our communities. We've been blessed with great instructors, and I think that in teaching tennis to our youth, we're also promoting education, developing citizenship and building future friendships and relationships.

Helen Moser Petersen

[Sheppard began his career as a high school speech teacher, and was a professor at St. John's into the late 1990s.] I think my teaching has been, or was, more important in my life than public address, ... [Because] teaching was more important than public address announcing in its value to society.

Bob Sheppard

He's like a big brother -- I've never had one, ... He's been teaching me ever since I got here, even in the summer. I use him and take advantage as much as I can.

Bruce Johnson

We just quit playing over a spell in the second half. I told the girls, 'Don't ever do that to me again.' But it's a good teaching tool. There are a lot of positives that we can get out of this.

Robin Blalock

It's possibly true that all you need is a chance, but there's a typical path coaches follow. In terms of the coaching part, handling players at practice, teaching the schemes of football, I don't think that would change a bit no matter what. But recruiting is much different.

Larry Kehres

I've always seen historical interpretation as a learning experience, just as much as high school teaching. It's an engaging way to explain history to people.

Tom Kelleher

He's a great coach, and he's going to make you better. He asks every player to believe in what he's teaching and believe in the system. He's such an exciting coach, you see him jumping on the sidelines and stuff. As a player, you like to see him get excited because he's excited for you and he wants to win, and that's been exciting for us. You just want to do what he asks.

Carl Elliott

With this program we can help strengthen regional farm profitability through local access while also teaching others about agriculture.

Mike Score

No other job in the world could possibly dispossess one so completely as this job of teaching. You could stand all day in a laundry, for instance, still in possession of your mind. But this teaching utterly obliterates you. It cuts right into your being: essentially, it takes over your spirit. It drags it out from where it would hide.
