I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think.
I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.
The teacher, if he is indeed wise, does not bid you to enter the house of wisdom,
but leads you to the threshold of your own mind.
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
--William Arthur Ward
The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.
--Mark Van Doren
Personally, I am always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught.
Before you become too entranced with gorgeous gadgets and mesmerizing video displays,
let me remind you that information is not knowledge, knowledge is not wisdom,
and wisdom is not foresight. Each grows out of the other, and we need them all.
--Arthur C. Clarke
What I hear, I forget. What I see, I remember. What I do, I understand.
The only kind of learning which significantly influences behavior is self-discovered
or self-appropriated learning--truth that has been assimilated in experience.
The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself.
Learning is not a spectator sport.
I have never in my life learned anything from any man who agreed with me.
--Dudley Field Malone
For learning to take place with any kind of efficiency, students must be motivated.
To be motivated, they must become interested. And they become interested when they are actively working on projects which they can relate to their values and goals in life.
Retention is best when the learner is involved.
The things we know best are the things we haven't been taught.
Training is everything. The peach was once a bitter almond;
cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands, but in seeing with new eyes.
To know yet to think that one does not know is best;
Not to know yet to think that one knows will lead to difficulty.
When you know something, say what you know. When you don't know something,
say that you don't know. That is knowledge.
There can be no knowledge without emotion. We may be aware of a truth,
yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours.
To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.
Cogito, ergo sum. (I think, therefore I am.)
It's all to do with the training: you can do a lot if you're properly trained.
