*---- More Quotes for the Week ----*

He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.
--George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"

Passive acceptance of the teacher's wisdom is easy to most boys and girls. It involves no effort of independent thought, and seems rational because the teacher knows more than his pupils; it is moreover the way to win the favour of the teacher unless he is a very exceptional man. Yet the habit of passive acceptance is a disastrous one in later life. It causes man to seek and to accept a leader, and to accept as a leader whoever is established in that position.
--Bertrand Russell

For every person who wants to teach there are approximately thirty people who don't want to learn--much.
--W. C. Sellar and R. J. Yeatman, And Now All This (1932) introduction


Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theater.
