Text Box: Affecting Eternity
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  
				    Henry Brooks Adams 
The mediocre teacher tells.  The good teacher explains.  The superior teacher demonstrates.  The great teacher inspires.  
				    William Arthur Ward 
One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings.  The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.  
					            Carl Jung 
The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate "apparently ordinary" people to unusual effort.  The tough problem is not in identifying winners:  it is in making winners out of ordinary people.  
					K. Patricia Cross 
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.  
					      Horace Mann
