Wisdom Pearls – 4

  • The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. (William Arthur Ward)
  • Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. (Aristotle)
  • A man can seldom — very, very, seldom — fight a winning fight against his training; the odds are too heavy. (Mark Twain)
  • A son asked his father, “What is common between educating and healing?”. The father replied, “There are two kinds which benefit the human being, one is the doctor that heals and the other is the teacher that teaches. That is the reason the prophets are mostly teachers or healers.” (Anonymous)
