10. Dan Rather
Quote: ‘The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth.’
This is one of the most honest quotes that you can share this Teachers day just to let people know how your teachers helped you do the right thing at the right time. A little strictness mixed with a little love and care is all it takes for a teacher to help students become the right person. While most people think it’s just another job, the truth is that the future of the country is in their hands and they do their best each day to shape them in the best way possible.
9. Henry Brooks Adams
Quote: ‘A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.’
A small but powerful quote that expresses just how important a teacher is in the life of a young child. Children learn a lot of important lessons in life at a young age because of their teachers. A teacher helps children understand the difference between right and wrong and they also teach them how to pick the right from the wrong.
8. Jacques Barzun
Quote: ‘In teaching, you cannot see the fruit of a day’s work. It is invisible and remains so, maybe for twenty years.’
While people are rewarded for their work on a daily basis or at least at the end of a year, a teacher needs to wait for a very long time to see the success of their students. Some teachers don’t manage to see the success, but their teachings prove beneficial when their names are mentioned in speeches of their successful students. Teachers don’t expect to get credit, but they continue to inspire so many lives in so many different ways.
7. Helen Caldicott
Quote: ‘Teachers, I believe, are the most responsible and important members of society because their professional efforts affect the fate of the earth.’
While every person plays an important role in their organization and they are in some way responsible for the success or failure of an organization, a teacher is responsible for the success of failure of a generation. It is their responsibility to help these children learn ethics, honesty as well as lessons that will come in handy all their life.
6. Albert Einstein
Quote: ‘It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.’
While parents have their own dreams for their children, teachers look at them as young minds that need to be shaped in the right manner. The right teachers help students identify what they want to do in life and encourage them to follow their passion. They do not have a dream planned for a student; they encourage them to build their own.
5. Nikos Kazantzakis
Quote: ‘Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own.’
This quote clearly explains how important it is for a teacher to help children learn how to follow their dreams. Teachers help students to take the initial few steps with guidance, and then they let them move forward on their own with a little encouragement.
4. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Quote: ‘A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified with name and form.’
There are good teachers and then there are great teachers, and there are those who will forever remain in our memories. These teachers are the ones that not only encourage young minds to follow their dreams, but also teach them how to do the right thing and how to put hard work and honesty before everything.
3. Ken Blanchard
Quote: ‘Your role as a leader is even more important than you might imagine. You have the power to help people become winners.’
All it takes is the right leader to guide you in the right way. When it comes to children, they need a strong mind, experience and the right lessons in order for them to become winners and this is where teachers play a very important role in the life of students.
2. William Butler Yeats
Quote: ‘Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.’
This is a very powerful quote that explains how the teachings of your teacher will forever inspire you and help you all your life.
1. Forest Witchcraft
Quote: ‘A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank, but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child.’
The biggest pleasure in a person’s life is to be able to inspire the life of an individual, and teachers are blessed with the pleasure of being able to inspire the lives of many.
