Learn their lesson, that if you would Teach people you first must capture their interest with news; that your service rather than your sermons must be your claim upon their attention; that what you say must be simple, and brief, and above all sincere — the unmistakable voice of true regard and affection.bruce fairchild barton
Enough of good there is in the lowest estate to sweeten life; enough of evil in the highest to check presumption; enough there is of both in all estates, to bind us in compassionate brotherhood, to Teach us impressively that we are of one dying and one immortal family.henry giles
How scientists go about their job: and it's a process, it's a question of asking questions, respecting observation, respecting experiment, having tentative explanations and then testing them.... There is a problem sometimes with how we Teach science at schools. Because we sometimes Teach it as if it has been chiseled in stone.paul nurse
Embarrassment is the greatest teacher, but since its lessons are exactly those we have tried hardest to conceal from ourselves, it may Teach us, also, to perfect our self-deception.james richardson
I cannot emphasize enough that I do not start with a plan or agenda and mechanically manipulate characters and events to carry it out. I set characters in motion, and let them Teach me what the book is.lois mcmaster bujold
If violence is wrong in America, violence is wrong abroad. If it's wrong to be violent defending black women and black children and black babies and black men, then it's wrong for America to draft us and make us violent abroad in defense of her. And if it is right for America to draft us, and Teach us how to be violent in defense of her, then it is right for you and me to do whatever is necessary to defend our own people right here in this country.malcolm (malcolm little) x
Concerning non-violence: it is criminal to Teach a man not to defend himself when he is the constant victim of brutal attacks.malcolm (malcolm little) x
A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to Teach; not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous...Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.1 Timothy 3:2-9.
Did the Warwickshire militia, who were chiefly artisans, Teach the Irish to drink beer, or did they learn from the Irish how to drink whiskey?Maria Edgeworth
We need to change the system. We need to overthrow, not the government, as the authorities are always accusing the Communists "of conspiring to Teach [us] to do", but this rotten, decadent, putrid industrial capitalist system which breeds such suffering in the whited sepulcher of New York.dorothy day
As we look upon that agony and those tearful prayers, let us not only look with thankfulness; but lot that kneeling Saviour Teach us that in prayer alone can we be forearmed against our lesser sorrows; that strength to bear flows into the heart that is opened in supplication; and that a sorrow which we are made able to endure is more truly cohijuered than a sorrow which we avoid.alexander maclaren
A teacher who is attempting to Teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering cold iron.horace mann
Generally speaking, an Indian university must regard itself as one of the living organs of national reconstruction. It must discover the best means of blending together both the spiritual and the material aspects of life. It must equip its alumni irrespective of caste, creed or sex, with individual fitness, not for its own sake, not for merely adorning varied occupations and professions, but in order to Teach them how to merge their individuality in the common cause of advancing the progress and prosperity of their motherland and upholding the highest traditions of human civilisation.syama prasad mookerjee
Where glowing embers through the room Teach light to counterfeit a gloom.john milton
I've got two daughters, nine years old and six years old. I am going to Teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby.Barack Obama
History teaches us that a given view has been abandoned in favor of another by all men, or by all competent men, or perhaps by only the most vocal men; it does not Teach us whether the change was sound or whether the rejected view deserved to be rejected. Only an impartial analysis of the view in question, an analysis that is not dazzled by the victory or stunned by the defeat of the adherents of the view concerned could Teach us anything regarding the worth of the view and hence regarding the meaning of the historical change.leo strauss

Speak to the earth, and it shall Teach thee.Job, XII. 8. (Hoyt's New Cyclopedia Of Practical Quotations)
Up and down! Up and down! From the base of the wave to the billow's crown; And amidst the flashing and feathery foam The Stormy Petrel finds a home, A home, if such a place may be, For her who lives on the wide, wide sea, On the craggy ice, in the frozen air, And only seeketh her rocky lair To warm her young and to Teach them spring At once o'er the waves on their stormy wing!Barry Cornwall, The Stormy Petrel.
