50 Inspirational Quotes for Teachers

This is a collection of inspirational quotes for teachers and for those who are students of life.

Words of wisdom...Points to Ponder...Inspirational Quotes...we all need it every now and then. Including teachers, especially teachers who serve the needs of students.  Well, these inspirational quotes sometimes leap out of the page from a newspaper, or a book or calendar, or emails or even text messages in our cell phones. At certain times, they are just exactly what we need to hear; or they may just be the push that can change our lives by making us see a different perspective to things.

As a person managing a preschool, I have come to see the work of a teacher inside and out.  And I know that it takes a lot of heart and mind to do the stuff teachers do.  They have to be okay inside because who they are is what they give.  This collection of inspirational quotes thereby addresses different aspects to teaching - may it be how a teacher perceives education, the learning style or students, fostering their natural curiosity or how a teacher should take care and nourish oneself.  Enjoy these collection of inspirational quotes for teachers.

I honor you teachers all over the world. Keep on sharing your light.

"Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own." -- Nikos Kazantzakis

"Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers." -- Richard Bach

"A teacher who can arouse a feeling for one single good action, for one single good poem, accomplishes more than he who fills our memory with rows and rows of natural objects, classified with name and form." -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"Thought flows in terms of stories -- stories about events, stories about people, and stories about intentions and achievements. The best teachers are the best storytellers. We learn in the form of stories." -- Frank Smith

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement, nothing can be done without hope and confidence." -- Helen Keller

"Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another." -- Marva Collins

"In education it isn't how much you have committed to memory or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. It's knowing where to go to find out what you need to know and it's knowing how to use the information you get." --William Feather

"A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron." -- Horace Mann

"They may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel." - Carol Buchner

"I think a hero is an ordinary individual who finds strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." -- Christopher Reeve

"Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny." -- Frank Outlaw

"If a seed of a lettuce will not grow, we do not blame the lettuce. Instead, the fault lies with us for not having nourished the seed properly." - Buddhist proverb

"The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind; to train it to the use of its own powers rather than to fill it with the accumulation of others." -- Tyron Edwards

"Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers." --Josef Albers

"Let us think of education as the means of developing our greatest abilities, because in each of us there is a private hope and dream which, fulfilled, can be translated into benefit for everyone and greater strength of the nation." -- John F. Kennedy

"Your role as a leader is even more important than you might imagine. You have the power to help people become winners." --Ken Blanchard

"If you want to live more, you must master the art of appreciating the little everyday blessings of life. This is not altogether a golden world but there are countless gleams of gold to be discovered in it." --Henry Alfred Porter

"Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, you can achieve." -- Mary Kay Ash

"One never notices what has been done; one can only see what remains to be done." -- Marie Curie

"Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three." --Confucius

"Life is no brief candle for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." -- George Bernard Shaw

"No matter how he may think himself accomplished, when he sets out to learn a new language, science or the bicycle, he has entered a new realm as truly as if he were a child newly born into the world." -- Frances Willard

"We should not teach children the sciences but give them a taste for them." -- Jean Jacques Rousseau

"Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants." -- John Gardner

"The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind." -- Kahlil Gibran

"A very wise old teacher once said: "I consider a day's teaching wasted if we do not all have one hearty laugh." He meant that when people laugh together, they cease to be young and old, master and pupils, jailer and prisoners. They become a single group of human beings enjoying its existence." -- Gilbert Highet

"To ensure that your work is also a play, I recommend that you develop a personal mission statement. This will help you find what it is to enjoy so much that you lose track of time when you're doing it." -- Ken Blanchard

"Each man must look to himself to teach him the meaning of life. It is not something discovered. It is something molded." -- Antoine De Saint-Exupery

"It is not what is poured into a student that counts but what is planted." -Linda Conway

"The greatest sign of a success for a teacher...is to be able to say, "The children are now working as if I did not exist." -- Maria Montessori

"There is in every child a painstaking teacher so skillful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one teaches them anything." --Maria Montessori

"We learn by example and by direct experience because there are real limits to the adequacy of verbal instruction." -- Malcom Gladwell

"You must train the children to their studies in a playful manner and without any air of constraint with the further object of discerning more readily the natural bent of their respective characters." -- Plato

"Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything." -- Mary Hemingway

"As you begin changing your thinking, start immediately to change your behavior. Begin to act the part of the person you would like to become. Take action on your behavior. Too many people want to feel, then take action. This never works." -- John C. Maxwell

"Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire." --William Butler Yeats

"If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, the excitement, and the mystery of the world we live in." --Rachel Carlson

"Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths theatre." -- Gail Goldwin

"No one but us ourselves-no one can and no one way. We ourselves must walk the path, teachers merely show the way." -- Nancy Wilson Ross

"There are two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there." -- Indira Gandhi

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." -- Carl Jung

"Every time you wake up and ask yourself, "What good things am I going to do today?," remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it takes a part of your life with it." --Indian proverb

"Education would be much more effective if its purpose was to ensure that by the time they leave school every boy and girl should know how much they do not know and be imbued with a lifelong desire to know it." -- William Haley

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." -- Albert Einstein

I love these quotes! I am a quote lover, anyway, and you've compiled an excellent collection. Teaching is such an important position and can have a tremendous impact on a child's life--not only on their education, but who they become as adults.

Thanks for a great hub!

Hi Ripplemaker..

Awesome!! I have to now step away from my PC and reflect and learn.

These simple words that are placed in certain orders which create sentences to change the way we can all live forever!..

These quotes ought to be posted on the walls of every school and home!

I have just started practising a new quote of mine..which is something along the lines of,

"If you always have bones to pick about someone" maybe its time to just bury them and move on'

It sounds like if i stop getting on with someone im going to kill them which is not the case!! lol

I was invited awhile back to talk to a graduating class of grade schoolers. In my speech, I referred to teachers as the backbone of our society and quoted a phrase (anonymous), "... to those who can nurture two blades of grass or two ears of corn, to grow on a spot of ground where one had grown before, deserve better of mankind than any of those politicians combined."

I say this to you, too Michelle ... Rick

We learn in the form of stories." -- Frank Smith...I love writing strories, so I write and paint to keep the creative juices flowing. love and light. peace.

Thanks for your site and for the inspirations. I was looking for a particular quote and found it. So many people do not realize what an impact they can make on a child or how they can help the wonderful teachers in the world. I have volunteered through my work with Page Ahead and Scholastic Books. "A hundred years from now, it will not matter what kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in, how much money I had in the bank...but the world may be a better place because I made a difference in the life of a child." -- Forest Witchcraft. Another favorite of mine is "It is easier to build a child than to repair an adult." Author unknown

Keep up the great work

ripplemaker, awesome collection of quotes for teachers. One that really stands out for me is:"They may forget what you say but they will never forget how you made them feel." As a teacher I have found out just how true this statement is. I work with "special" children and love every minute of it. It's wonderful to run across a child a few years after they have left you to find them doing things that people said they would never be able to do. They may not be remember how some of the lessons you so patiently went over time and time again but they will remember you and how you made them feel about themselves. Great hub.

Actually, the name of the gentleman who is quoted as making the difference in the life of a child was Forest Witcraft, PhD. For some reason we tend to look at his last name and sometimes see another familiar word instead of the actual spelling. Dr. Witcraft was a minister and scoutmaster. His essay, "Within My Power," appeared on page 2 of Scouting magazine in October of 1950.
