„The truth is, when all is said and done, one does not teach a subject, one teaches a student how to learn it.“

"Reasons to De-Test the Schools," New York Times (1988-10-11), later published in Begin Here: The Forgotten Conditions of Teaching and Learning (1991)

„The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.“

—  Neil deGrasse Tyson American astrophysicist and science communicator 1958

Global Ideas from Pluto's Challenger (May 21, 2009)
Kontext: The best educators are the ones that inspire their students. That inspiration comes from a passion that teachers have for the subject they're teaching. Most commonly, that person spent their lives studying that subject, and they bring an infectious enthusiasm to the audience.I think many people have that enthusiasm, but they are prevented from being teachers because they didn't go through the teacher mill. Now you have teachers who have been through the teacher mill, yet they have no capacity to inspire anyone at all. It's the inspired student that continues to learn on their own. That's what separates the real achievers in the world from those who pedal along, finishing assignments.

„If you merely teach dogmas dogmatically, you are not teaching in the sense in which I understand teaching… and learning… does not consist merely in knowing: it is not learning unless there is some corresponding doing.“

—  George Long English classical scholar 1800 - 1879

Kontext: I have said nothing about religious teaching as one of the means of forming a good character.... I, who am not a teacher of religion, do not presume to say how it should be taught, so taught as to be practical. If you merely teach dogmas dogmatically, you are not teaching in the sense in which I understand teaching... and learning... does not consist merely in knowing: it is not learning unless there is some corresponding doing.

„This is a book by a writer who does some teaching, not a book by a teacher who does some writing, and one of the satisfactions of the craft is that there's always something new to learn.“
