“A teacher must possess many qualities –

firmness and softness,

patience and perseverance and sturdiness...

desire to train them up, all of them, both week and strong.

And, creativity in one's approach to one's task

is also above all...”

it is equally rare for gurus to get a good disciple.

Every performer is not an able guru and vice-versa.

Not everyone has the kind of patience required for teaching.”

“The mediocre teacher tells.

The good teacher explains.

The superior teacher demonstrates.

The great teacher inspires.”

“Try to respect the student's spiritual feeling and intelligence.

A human being is in your hands.

If you don't love your students, it's better you don't teach.

Give the truth always.”


- Maestro Hector Zaraspe
