You cannot teach anyone anything unless they are willing to learn.
If you're being mentored, absorb like a sponge. The lessons will become more significant as the years go by. Robert Steele, Motivated Magazine
Teachers who respect students talk with them, not at them.
Deborah Norville, The Power Of Respect
A basic truism I have discovered over twenty years of coaching and training is that most of the stress people experience comes from inappropriately managed commitments they make or accept.
David Allen, Getting Things Done; The Art Of Stress-Free Productivity
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.
A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.
Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another.
They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel.
Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers.
Awaken people's curiosity. It is enough to open minds, do not overload them. Put there just a spark.
A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.
Education...is a painful, continual and difficult work to be done in kindness, by watching, by warning,... by praise, but above all -- by example.
Give me a fish and I eat for a day. Teach me to fish and I eat for a lifetime.
By learning you will teach;by teaching you will understand.
If you would thoroughly know anything, teach it to others.
We learn by teaching.
