Teachers have always been a guide and an inspiration at every stage of a student's life. In India, 5th September is celebrated as Teachers' Day as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society. Teachers' Day across the globe is officially celebrated on October 5, but in India, we celebrate Teachers' Day on September 5th to honour Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.
Teachers lay the foundation of a civilised and progressive society. Their dedicated work and the pain they encounter to ensure that students turn out to be enlightened citizens deserve high recognition. A special day to revere teachers is undeniably inspiring.
Here is a collection of inspirational quotes for teachers:
Happy Teachers Day
"The dream begins, most of the time, with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you on to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called truth." (Dan Rather)
Teachers play vital role in our lives
"I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit." (John Steinbeck)
Teachers shape our personality
"There is a great difference between knowing and understanding: you can know a lot about something and not really understand it." (Charles F. Kettering)
Teachers are next to parents
"The teachers who get "burned out" are not the ones who are constantly learning, which can be exhilarating, but those who feel they must stay in control and ahead of the students at all times." (Frank Martin)
