Inspire to Teach

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.
—Chinese Proverb

One's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
—William Butler Yeats

Cultivation to the mind is as necessary as food to the body.
—Marcus Tullius Cicero

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
—Robert Frost

Draw a crazy picture, Write a nutty poem, Sing a mumble-gumble song; Whistle through your comb. Do a looney-gooney dance 'Cross the Kitchen Floor, Put something silly in the world that ain't been there before.
—Shel Silverstein
