Teacher Quotes

Quotes from Mahatma Gandhi.................

  • Literacy is not the end of education nor even the beginning.

  • National education to be truly national must reflect the national condition for the time being.

  • True education must correspond to the surrounding circumstances or it is not a healthy growth. 

  • What is really needed to make democracy function is not knowledge of facts, but right education.

  • Education should be so revolutionized as to answer the wants of the poorest villager, instead of answering those of an imperial exploiter.

  • An education which does not teach us to discrimiinate between good and bad, to assimilate the one and eschew the other, is a misnomer.

Teachers Day Importance

Dr.Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was born on September 5, 1888, in a middle class family in the pilgrim town of Tirutani (now in tamilnadu,India).
One of India's most influential scholars of comparative religion and philosophy, Radhakrishnan is thought of as having built a bridge between the East and the West by showing that the philosophical systems of each tradition are comprehensible within the terms of the other. He wrote authoritative exegeses of India's religious and philosophical literature for the English speaking world. His academic appointments included the King George V Chair of Mental and Moral Science at the University of Calcutta (1921–1931) and Spalding Professor of Eastern Religion and Ethics at Oxford University (1936–1952).
It was in 1962 when Dr. Radhakrishnan became the President of India that his birthday in September came to be observed as 'Teachers' Day'. It was a tribute to Dr.Radhakrishnan's close association with the cause of teachers. Whatever position he held whether as President or Vice President or even as Ambassador, Dr.Radhakrishnan essentially remained a teacher all his life. The teaching profession was his first love and those who studied under him still remember with gratitude his great qualities as a teacher.
