Langenhoven: God created the world just like a knife and left it up to us to take it by the handle or the blade.
He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool. Shun him.He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child. Teach him.He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep. Wake him.He who knows, and knows that he knows, is a teacher. Listen to him. Omar Khayam, 13th century philosopher
Here is an old saying from Confucius:

Flatter me, and I may not believe you.
Criticize me, and I may not like you.
Ignore me, and I may not forgive you.
Encourage me, and I may not forget you.
He that cannot reason is a fool.
He that will not is a bigot.
He that dare not is a slave.
When you judge another,
you do not define them,
you define yourself.
Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The mediocre teacher tells.
The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.
William A. Ward
Failure should be our teacher,
not our undertaker.
Failure is delay, not defeat.
It is a temporary detour,
not a dead end.
Failure is something we can avoid only
by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing.
What you get by achieving your goals
is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
It is not your aptitude, but your attitude,
that determines your altitude.
