Just some quotes that will hopefully make you smile:

To be able to be caught up into the world of thought--that is being educated.
Edith Hamilton

The teachers who get "burned out" are not the ones who are constantly learning, which can be exhilarating, but those who feel they must stay in control and ahead of the students at all times.
Frank Smith

We teach what we like to learn and the reason many people go into teaching is vicariously to reexperience the primary joy experienced the first time they learned something they loved.
Stephen Brookfield

TEACHING: the earth doesn't move every time, but when it does, what a RUSH!
Cameron Beatty

Students learn what they care about . . .," Stanford Ericksen has said, but Goethe knew something else: "In all things we learn only from those we love." Add to that Emerson's declaration: "the secret of education lies in respecting the pupil." and we have a formula something like this: "Students learn what they care about, from people they care about and who, they know, care about them . . ."
Barbara Harrell Carson, 1996, Thiry Years of Stories
