Martin Heidegger
Teaching is more difficult than learning because what teaching calls for is this: to let learn. The real teacher, in fact, lets nothing else be learned than learning. His conduct, therefore, often produces the impression that we properly learn nothing from him, if by "learning" we now suddenly understand merely the procurement of useful information.

If you can read this, thank a teacher.

Albert Einstein

Morihei Ueshiba
Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything -- even mountains, rivers, plants and trees -- should be your teacher.

Richard Bach
Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers and teachers.

Thomas H. Huxley
