Kahlil Gilbran on Teaching
"Whoever would be a teacher, let him begin by teaching himself before teaching others, and let him teach by examples before teaching by word. For he who teaches himself and rectifies his own ways is more deserving of respect and reverence than he who would teach others and rectify their ways." Joseph Sheban, ed. Wisdom of Kahlil Gibran(New York: Bantam Books, 1973), p. 93.
