An Ideal Teacher
"A teacher can never truly teach unless he is still learning himself. A lamp never light another lamp unless it continues to burn its own frame. The teacher who has come to an end of his subject who has no living traffic with his knowledge merely repeats his lesson to his students can only loads to their mind. He cannot quicken them Truth not only must inform but also must inspire if the inspiration dies out and the information only accumulates then truth losses its infinity. The greater part of our learning in the school has been a waste because of most of our teacher their subjects are like dead specimens of once living things with which they have a learned acquaintance but no communication of life and love"
-Rabindra Nath Tagore
