"A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops."
-Henry Adams, 1907
In certain precious moments we all think back to a special moment spent in school. The sound of a hundred voices in the hallway, the echo of the gymnasium, the moments frozen in time when friend bonded with friend. And entwined in those moments are memories of teachers, who ruled, cajoled, entertained, and made a difference in our lives.
"The first duty of a lecturer--to hand you after an hour's discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks and keep on the mantelpiece forever."
- Virginia Woolf, 1929
