The teacher usually learns more than the pupils. Isn't that true?
"It would be hard to learn much less than my pupils," came a low growl from somewhere on the table, "without undergoing a pre-frontal lobotomy."

Douglas Adams

Progress is slow partly from mere intellectual inertia. In a subject where there is no agreed procedure for knocking out errors, doctrines have a long life. A professor teaches what he was taught, and his pupils, with a proper respect and reverence for teachers, set up a resistance against his critics for no other reason than that it was he whose pupils they were.

Joan Robinson

I learned everything from her. ... It is a teacher-pupil relationship. That's what people don't understand. She's the teacher and I'm the pupil. I'm the famous one, the one who's supposed to know everything, but she's my teacher. She's taught me everything I f**king know.

Yoko Ono

I'm no teacher. Never wanted to teach and don't believe in teaching an art. Science yes, business of course..but an art cannot be taught. You can only inculcate it, you can be an exemplar, you can create an atmosphere in which it can grow. Well I suppose I, being an exemplar, could be called a teacher, in spite of myself. So go ahead, call me a teacher.

Frank Lloyd Wright

Albers was a beautiful teacher and an impossible person. He wasnít easy to talk to, and I found his criticism so excruciating and so devastating that I never asked for it. Years later, though, Iím still learning what he taught me, because what he taught me had to do with the entire visual world. He didnít teach you how to Ďdo artí. The focus was always on your personal sense of looking.. ..I consider Albers the most important teacher Iíve ever had, and Iím sure that he considers me one of his poorest students.
