Teaching is the continuous process of building character, establishing moral attitudes, creating respect for the good way of life and distaste for the lightheaded and irresponsible mode of existence."

"Our job is to give the students the material; their job is to let the materials interact within their minds."

"A person's proximity to God is measured by his compassion toward his fellow man."
