A good teacher must believe in the ideas he teaches, but he must meet another condition; he must believe in the students to whom he offers the ideas. (A Course In Miracles, Chapter 4, I, 1, 4)

People who think themselves wise are seldom humble enough to allow others to guide them.  It is better to be stupid and slow and to be humble about it, than to possess vast knowledge and to be smug about it. (Thomas 'A Kempis, The Imitation Of Christ, Book 3, Chapter 7, p. 94)

Goal-directed behavior, one of the bases of any kind of success in life and love, depends upon being able to organize one's thoughts and hopes, and act upon them in a direct and timely fashion. (Ratey and Johnson, Shadow Syndromes, p. 62)

There is one thing that keeps many people from gaining ground and from fervently striving to improve: the dread of difficultly, or more accurately the effort of the struggle. (Thomas 'A Kempis, The Imitation Of Christ, Book 1, Chapter 25, p. 60)
