Teaching from the heart

“The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book” (unknown)

Many years ago (and long before I started the epic journey of creating this website!), I used to run an inspiration blog. I loved looking for little snippets of wisdom to motivate and inspire me in every day life.

Here are some of my favourite quotes about teaching. Do you have any not mentioned here?


“There is a great difference between knowing and understanding: you can know a lot about something and not really understand it” Kettering

“I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn” Einstein

“It takes a big heart to help shape little minds” Unknown

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire” William Butler Yeats

“A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary” Thomas Carruthers

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge” Einstein

“A teacher is a compass that activates the magnets of curiosity, knowledge, and wisdom in the pupils” Ever Garrison
