Quote of the day – Nikos Kazantzakis

True teachers use themselves as bridges
over which they invite their students to cross;
then, having facilitated their crossing,
joyfully collapse,
encouraging them to create bridges of their own.

Two university students had an exam coming up but they opted to party instead, and missed the test. “Our car broke down due to a flat tyre,” they told the professor earnestly. “Can we write the exam tomorrow?” The professor agreed to give them a makeup test the next day.

Both boys crammed all night until they were sure they knew just about everything. Arriving the next morning, each was told to go to a separate classroom to take the exam. They shrugged and complied. As they sat down, they read the first question: “For 5 points, explain the contents of an atom.” This is going to be a piece of cake! thought each boy, answering the question with ease.

Then, the test continued. “For 95 points, tell me which tyre it was.”
