Teaching can be one of the most rewarding jobs there is, but at times it can also be the source of incredible frustration. If you ever feel like giving up on that one student, or you're asking yourself why you put in all that hard work, read one of the following inspirational quotes about education. And I mean read it out loud! Copy your favorite ones into a notebook or print them out and put them in your office, bedroom, or even your classroom.
"The Best way to predict your Future is to create it."
"He, who opens a school door, closes a prison."
"If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail."
You can teach a student a lesson for a day; but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.
~Clay P. Bedford Aim
"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
~Henry B Adams
"Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them."
"The difference between school and life? In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson."
"If someone is going down the wrong road, he doesn’t need motivation to speed him up. What he needs is education to turn him around."
"Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each."
"Learning without thought is a labor lost, thought without learning is perilous."
