Excellent proverb. So true.
Aha! Perhaps I should tell that to some of MY teachers. Just to see what they think...
Thank you for writing, ladies. This quote was most fitting for me as I am both teacher and student for the present time. There is so very much to learn and so much good ahead, by God's grace. May God bless you both. It is always such a joy to read your very nice comments!
Kindred Spirit, I am happy to read that you are a teacher. Teachers have a lot of influence on their students. Just by seeing and observing on this blog, I can tell that you have much to offer your students.
Thank you for your very nice words, Hannah. I teach Geography to seventh and eighth grade girls in a 19th century building on the Oregon Trail: the eighth graders have desks just like the ones in this picture--really! I feel as though I've gone back in time, and it's quite a nice experience. When I'm not teaching I'm a student at Washburn University, so this quote has a special meaning for me.
