Famous quotes containing the word teaching:

    If we focus exclusively on teaching our children to read, write, spell, and count in their first years of life, we turn our homes into extensions of school and turn bringing up a child into an exercise in curriculum development. We should be parents first and teachers of academic skills second.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)

    It may be that through habit these do best,
    Coming to water clumsily undressed
    Yearly; teaching their children by a sort
    Of clowning; helping the old, too, as they ought.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Give me the splendid silent sun
    with all his beams full-dazzling,
    Give me juicy autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard,
    Give me a field where the unmow’d grass grows,
    Give me an arbor, give me the trellis’d grape,
    Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching content,
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
