“Creative teachers are creative because they have kept in touch with their own hidden sources of emotional energy. If you are to remain an alert teacher, you must not only live for the class; otherwise the level of your consciousness will drop to that of the class and you will then become a companion rather than a guide. You must continue to be an intellectual adventurer, quick to pitch tent on the fluctuating boundaries of the known. You must continue to develop and refine your own talent.”
