“The teacher’s task is not to implant facts but to place the subject to be learned in from of the learner and, through sympathy, emotion, imagination, and patience, to awaken in the learner the restless drive for answers and insights which enlarge the personal life and give it meaning.”
Nathan M. Pusey (1907-2001) as Quoted in The New York Times (1959)
