What is a teacher? I'll tell you: it isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows. - Paulo Coelho (The Witch of Portobello Quotes)

What is a teacher? I’ll tell you: it isn’t someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.[O que é um mestre? Pois eu lhe respondo: não é aquele que ensina algo, mas aquele que inspira o aluno a dar o melhor de si para descobrir o que ele já sabe.]
