"The proper method of teaching a given art is available only to those who, by personally engaging in that art, have become conversant with its inner necessities. The fundamental motive of true teaching is the love that seeks and studies and performs. True teachers not only impart knowledge and method but awaken the love of learning by virtue of their own reflected love."

Robert Grudin, The Grace of Great Things: Creativity and Innovation 147 (New York: Ticknor & Fields, 1990)
