Sabbath Keeping

"Train up a child in the way he should go 
and when he is old he will not depart from it."

"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
~ Henry Adams ~
"Successful teachers are surpassed by their pupils." ~ unknown ~
"When you're ready, the teacher you need appears before you." ~ proverb ~
"Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself."  ~ proverb ~
"Teaching is the royal road to learning." 
"We learn by teaching." 
"The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires."
"The greatest sign of success for a teacher...is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist." ~ Maria Montessori
"Education's purpose is to replace an empty mind with an open one." 
~ Malcom Forbes ~
"Children must be taught how to think,
not what to think."
"A teacher who loves learning earns the right and the ability to help others learn."
~ Ruth Beechick ~
"Teaching is a calling too. And I've always thought that teachers in their way are holy - angels leading their flocks out of the darkness." ~ Jeannette Walls
"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts."
~ Judith Kelman
"Let us learn on earth those things whose knowledge might continue in heaven."
~ St. Paul's School
"Learn one thing well first." ~ John Clarke ~
"There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and move away. No one has stepped twice into the same river. But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"
~ Marina Tsvetaeva
"Today a reader,
tomorrow a leader."
~ W. Fusselman
"It made me gladsome to be getting some education, it being like a big window opening."
~ Marg Webb ~
"The excitement of learning 
separates youth from old age.
As long as you're learning,
you're not old."
"I am still learning."
~ Michelangelo, age 87 ~

"You call me teacher and Lord,
and you are right,
for so I am."

  2. Hi Sandra, I spent yesterday with a childhood friend who has spent her life teaching first in public school and now in retirement at Christian school. She has positively affected so many lives and I admire her so much.
    I enjoyed these quotes. Praying that you will have a nice week.

  3. I consider myself a lifelong learner and love it! Love the quotes you shared. My husband says you can learn something from everyone you meet. Might not all be good, but you'll learn something. :)

  4. As a teacher myself, I really appreciate all these quotes and scriptures. My prayer is always that I can teach and touch the lives of my students for good and I ask God to guide me. Thank you, my friend. Have a good week!

  5. Sandra, That first proverb about training up a child in the way he should go....I sure hope that is true. My daughter has strayed away from her Christianity big time.

    Have a great week!

  6. "a teacher who loves learning" is one of my
    favorite quotes. my grandmother lived
    her entire 90 years learning. sometimes
    i get glimpses of her in my heart.

  7. I always thought that because I loved school, loved to learn that I should make a good teacher. I was not. After 6 years of teaching Sunday School to 4-year olds I finally admitted that a good teacher was a breed different from me. But oh how I wished I could have been. I still remember my best teachers fondly.

    "Let us learn on earth those things whose knowledge might continue in heaven."


    "Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself."

  9. Karen, Sunday's are generally restful; church, regular chores and holding down the porch -grin-.

    Mildred, a good teacher is worth their weight in gold.

    Nancy, your husband is a wise man!

    Debbie, bless you for teaching; a good teacher is worth their weight in gold!

    Charlotte, as did I in my youth but I came home...finally; keep praying!

    Lea, I'm still learning and hope never to stop.

    Dewena, the best teachers are worth remembering; unfortunately, I remember some of the bad ones as well.

    Dori, you are SO kind. The Bible is my first reference point; the rest falls into place.
