Six thought-provoking quotations on teaching

March 24th, 2010 | by Suki |


My friends know that I’m a big fan of quotations! I recently found a stack of mini journals I had made as a teenager that contained pages upon pages of deep and meaningful quotations, complete with illustrations! I guess I was one of ‘those’ kids! :)

A well-timed quote can often be the only ‘shift’ we need to change our perspective on something we’re going through. I can actually count a few quotations that have actually shaped how I choose to live my life. In this post, I thought I’d share some of my favorite quotes on teaching.

  1. Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theater.
    ~Gail Godwin
  2. To know how to suggest is the great art of teaching.
    ~Henri Frederic Amiel
  3. Nine-tenths of education is encouragement.
    ~Anatole France
  4. What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.
    ~Soren Kierkegaard
  5. Whatever you want to teach, be brief.
  6. A good teacher is like a candle: it consumes itself to light the way for others.
