"Short poem from W. B. Yeats:
"Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with gold and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams." And every day, everywhere, our children spread their dreams beneath our feet. And we should tread softly."

"curiosity is an engine of achievement"
"education is about learning; if there is no learning going on there is no education"
"the role of the teacher is to facilitate learning; that's it"

"There's a wonderful quote from Benjamin Franklin. "There are three sorts of people in the world: 
  • Those who are immovable, people who don't get it, or don't want to do anything about it; 
  • there are people who are movable, people who see the need for change and are prepared to listen to it; 
  • and there are people who move, people who make things happen." 
Ken Robinson (educationalist) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
