tend to deify their teachers,
attributing Godly powers to them.
And yet, a true teacher
is simply a facilitator,
one who eases
the process of learning.
A teacher is a bridge
between the teachings and the student,
a lens to bring the truth into focus,
so it can be seen more clearly,
and assimilated more completely.
Our great teachers
deserve our greatest gratitude,
our greatest respect,
for their humbleness,
and for their skill,
insight, and passion.
