Friedrich Nietzsche
“One repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Chuck Palahniuk
“But if you tell folks you're a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you're talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn't work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Invisible Monsters

Megan McCafferty
“All subjects are the same. I memorize notes for a test, spew it, ace it, then forget it. What makes this scary for the future of our country is that I'm in the tip-top percentile on every standardized test. I'm a model student with a very crappy attitude about learning.”
Megan McCafferty, Sloppy Firsts

“A teacher is one who makes himself progresively unnecessary.”
― Thomas Carruthers

Henry Adams
“A parent gives life, but as parent, gives no more. A murderer takes life, but his deed stops there. A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
Henry Adams, The Education of Henry Adams

“Beethoven said that it's better to hit the wrong note confidently, than hit the right note unconfidently. Never be afraid to be wrong or to embarrass yourself; we are all students in this life, and there is always something more to learn.”
Mike Norton

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
“Teachers can be a living example to their students. Not that teachers should look for students to idealize them. One who is worth idealizing does not care whether others idealize them or not. Everyone needs to see that you not only teach human values but you live them. It is unavoidable sometimes you will be idealized -- it is better for children to have a role model, or goal, because then the worshipful quality in them can dawn.”
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Vera Nazarian
“The master of the garden is the one who waters it, trims the branches, plants the seeds, and pulls the weeds. If you merely stroll through the garden, you are but an acolyte.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Jarod Kintz
“There’s truth in only having a bicycle seat. I used to skip class and just hold it out in the hallway. When teachers would ask me what I was doing, I’d hold it up and say, “Sorry I’m late.” 
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Has No Title

Oscar Wilde
“What a silly thing love is!' said the student as he walked away. 'It is not half as useful as logic, for it does not prove anything, and it is always telling one of things that are not going to happen, and making one believe things that are not true. In fact, it is quite unpractical, and, as in this age to be practical is everything, I shall go back to philosophy and study metaphysics.'
So he returned to his room and pulled out a great dusty book, and began to read.”
Oscar Wilde

Daniel Amory
“Look, girls know when they’re cute,” he said. “You don’t have to tell them. All they need to do is look in the mirror. I have one friend out in New York, an attorney. She moved out there after the school year to take the bar. She doesn’t have a job. I was like, ‘How are you going to get a job there in this market?’ And she’s like, ‘I’ll wink and I’ll smile.’ She’s a pretty girl. Whether that works despite her poor grades is yet to be seen.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

Jarod Kintz
“Love isn’t stackable and interlocking, like boxes or Legos. Love is like a one-legged man standing on a three-legged chair that is placed on top of a two-legged piano. I should know, because I’m the guy trying to tune that piano, fix that chair, and affix a prosthetic leg to that guy—who happens to be my piano teacher. Mr. Balloonky, you get down from there now!
”
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

Daniel Amory
“I don’t think I’ve ever referred to any girl I dated as my girlfriend. I think that would freak me out. Even the girl that I dated for two years in college I don’t think I ever referred to her as my girlfriend.”
“How would you introduce her?” I asked.
“I’m just going to say her name,” he said.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

Hasil Paudyal
“If you know that I am genius
Then know that you made me genius
Everyone don't accept me as genius
Because they aren't genius to belief me as genius”
Hasil Paudyal, Blended Words

“The quality of the relationships that students have in class with their peers and teachers is important to their success in school.”
Bob Pletka, Educating the Net Generation: How to Engage Students in the 21st Century

Marianne Moore
“Wolf's wool is the best wool, but it cannot be sheared, because the wolf will not comply. With knowledge as with wolves' surliness, the student studies voluntarily, refusing to be less than individual. He "gives his opinion and then rests upon it"; he renders service when there is no reward, and is too reclusive for some things to seem to touch him; not because he has no feeling but because he has so much.”
Marianne Moore, Complete Poems

“You can't have a goal without determination, because without the determination the goal will die.”
Patrick L. Turner

Kim Harrison
“Student food." His eyes went to the tomato on the sill. "Whatever's in the refrigerator over pasta.”
Kim Harrison, Dead Witch Walking

“I've always been a student of this life, not a teacher. More of a sponge than a fountain.”
Louis Chunovic, Chris-In-The-Morning: Love, Life, and the Whole Karmic Enchilada

“That weekend the city blushed with a great heat wave but on Monday it rained, cooling the ache in the street’s burn.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

“As an undergraduate student in psychology, I was taught that multiple personalities were a very rare and bizarre disorder. That is all that I was taught on ... It soon became apparent that what I had been taught was simply not true. Not only was I meeting people with multiplicity; these individuals entering my life were normal human beings with much to offer. They were simply people who had endured more than their share of pain in this life and were struggling to make sense of it.”
Deborah Bray Haddock, The Dissociative Identity Disorder Sourcebook

“In designing tasks, the instructor should take care to ensure that the task design requires active student participation and promotes the acquisition of the task's pedagogical goals.”
― Abdi Kazeroni

Gayle Forman
“I didn't give it much thought back then. I just wanted to get all the words straight and collect my A.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“...your zeal to face life's rough and tumble, your ardor to accept the responsibilities of adulthood is hardly congruent with the aspirations of most graduate students...' He shook his head of disagreeable hair. 'I need not tell you,' he deplored, sinking to paralipsis, 'that there resides in almost every one of 'em the unconscious desire not to grow up. For once the academic goal is attained and the doctorate irradicably abbreviated after the name, the problem of facing the world is confronted. The subtlest, most unremitting drive of the student is his unconscious proclivity to postpone the acceptance of responsibility as long as possible.”
Millard Kaufman

Daniel Amory
“Really, nobody was there?” I asked.
“Well, nobody important,” he said, putting his glasses back on and blinking.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

“Student engagement is the product of motivation and active learning. It is a product rather than a sum because it will not occur if either element is missing.”
Elizabeth F. Barkley, Student Engagement Techniques: A Handbook for College Faculty

“This is so funny,” said Ellen, noticing the seating arrangement. “Isn’t this funny? Tom, come sit next to Robin. Griffin, sit next to Laura.”
I stood up and sat next to Robin while Griffin brought his chair over to Laura.
“That’s better,” said Ellen. “Isn’t that better?”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

Daniel Amory
“Should I have a doughnut or my disgusting cardboard?” asked Gwynn, as she drew up languidly before me at a study table in a bookstore on State Street, raising a puffed rice cake in the air.
My eyes narrowed attentively at her face, but as I hesitated, she announced eagerly, “Disgusting cardboard it is!”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

Daniel Amory
“Don’t you think most of those kids think too much about who got an A or a B when they were in law school and what that means to an inflated G.P.A. and not enough about the world?” asked Connor irrelevantly.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs

Daniel Amory
“The stars glittered in the sky and as the number of people at the party grew there were merging conversations and laughter and bodies moving in outlines around the kegs of beer in a curtsy of youth.”
Daniel Amory, Minor Snobs
