What We Learn from Elizabeth Warren

esquire.comSir Thomas More: Why not be a teacher? You’d be a fine teacher. Perhaps, a great one.

Rich: And if I was who would know it?

More: You, your pupils, your friends, God. Not a bad public, that…oh, and a quiet life.

—Robert Bolt, A Man for All Seasons, Act I

The best teachers are the ones who remain students at heart, the ones who keep learning from their students, and from the world around them, and from their own drive to know even more about even more things, and who then are able to transmit that knowledge—and more important, the drive to know more—to their students. That’s how great teachers echo through time. That’s how great teachers become immortal.
