Housework is a breeze. Cooking is a pleasant diversion. Putting up a retaining wall is a lark. But teaching is like climbing a mountain.
-Fawn M. Brodie
The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without his teacher.
School is a building that has four walls—with tomorrow inside.
A child's hand in yours—what tenderness it arouses,
what power it conjures. You are instantly
the very touchstone of wisdom and strength.
