Teacher Quotes about the contribution of various teachers in our life

teacher quotes

Teacher Quotes talk about the real teachers in our lives and their contribution as guiding lights in our life journey. The teachers we get in our schools or institutes may have a huge influence on us – sometimes it’s positive, sometimes it’s just the opposite.

We, fortunately, may get the blessings and guidance of such teachers who change our life altogether in a better direction. Hardly we can forget them in our life.

But when we start life outside school then we face a new world – full of challenges and friction. Our school learnings don’t help much in complex situations.

At that point, Life itself becomes a teacher for us – we learn so many new lessons every day and every moment from our life experiences. Our life, our experiences, all the moments we struggle or face complexities, our ambiance, the people we meet, nature, and our failures and frustrations and heartbreaks all together become our teachers.

The teacher quotes we presented here talk about all these teachers.

# Teacher Quotes by Buddha
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.

Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
― Buddha Siddhartha Guatama Shakyamuni [ Buddha Quotes ]

You cannot follow them; there are no footprints left behind.”
― Osho

“My teacher is so near to me that I scarcely think of myself apart from her. How much of my delight in all beautiful things is innate, and how much is due to her influence, I can never tell. I
feel that her being is inseparable from my own, and that the footsteps of my life are in hers. All the best of me belongs to her–there is not a talent, or an aspiration or a joy in me that
has not been awakened by her loving touch.”
― Helen Keller

“Everyone’s looking for the perfect teacher, but although their teachings might be divine, teachers are all too human, and that’s something people find all too hard to accept. Don’t confuse the teacher with the lesson, the ritual with the ecstasy, the transmitter of the symbol with the symbol itself. The Tradition is linked to our encounter with the forces of life and not with the people who bring this about. But we are weak: we ask the Mother to send us guides, and all she sends are signs to the road we need to follow.Pity those who seek for shepherds, instead of longing for freedom! An encounter with superior energy is open to anyone but remains far from those who shift responsibility onto others. Our time on earth is sacred and we should celebrate every moment.”
― Paulo Coelho

“Children want the same things we want.
To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted.”

And every experience is a valuable teacher.”
― Oprah Winfrey
