Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time. – Rabbinical saying

It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Education is a method whereby one acquires a higher grade of prejudices.
– Laurence J. Peter

“Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.”
— John Cotton Dana
