Quote by Deepa Bhushan
Teachers, you don't teach a subject, you teach a child.
This quote emphasizes the importance of acknowledging that teachers are not simply delivering information about a particular subject, but are instead guiding and nurturing the development of individual students. It emphasizes the need for a holistic approach to education, recognizing that each child is unique and requires personalized attention, understanding, and support in order to truly learn and grow. It serves as a reminder that teaching goes beyond the transmission of knowledge and should encompass understanding and catering to the needs and capabilities of each student.
But nothing is said of the closeness between two people: how they grew in the shade of each other's presence. No one speaks of that exchange of gift and character --- the way a person took on and recognized in himself the smile of a lover. Individuals are seen only in the context of these swirling social tides.
My goal was never to just create a company. A lot of people misinterpret that, as if I don't care about revenue or profit or any of those things. But what not being just a company means to me is not being just that - building something that actually makes a really big change in the world.
My goal is to get another 30 years out of this business. So I need to figure out the fuel to do that. And so far, I think it's respect and quality and company, not celebrity or box office or stardom. It's not a sprinter's approach. It's more like a long-distance thing. You can stick around a lot longer if you kind of slow-play it.
Sir, I have no objection to a man's drinking wine, if he can do it in moderation. I found myself apt to go to excess in it, and therefore, after having been for some time without it, on account of illness, I thought it better not to return to it. Every man is to judge for himself, according to the effects which he experiences.
