A great teacher

What is the difference between a scholar and a teacher?

The first one only accumulates knowledge, the other spreads it along his way.

What is the difference between a good teacher and a bad one?

One wants to teach you; and the other wants you to learn.

One wants to stand before you and deliver, the other, around you and observe.

One will protect you from all error, the other will help you stand after a fall, and show you where you fell.

A great teacher is one who has made his disciple strong enough to teach himself, without needing his teacher’s words.

A great teacher is a reason you are here, now, against all odds. Thinking of him even for a moment will carry him a blessing, to wherever he is.
