Too many of these cryptic quotations.

I had three teachers who left deep imprints in my life:

One was a horrid demon of a woman--but she had a real passion for algebra. She taught algebra with such thoroughness and such vivacity that I drew from her passion my own passion for mathematics. This, despite her wicked character! I went on to become a mathematics minor (algebra and calculus), and later a remedial mathematics tutor.

The second was a sweet dulcet of a woman. She had a passion for music. Because she was so patient with me, and taught me everything she knew, with such an urgency and such a strong desire to have me succeed, she opened for me a lifelong love of music. I have studied choral singing and music in general all my life. And I had my own choir for many years--our strong point was choral singing! I give her total credit for giving me my lifelong love of music.

The third teacher gave me my love of my faith and of English. She was passionate about both of these subjects and found creative ways of teaching these subjects. Her teaching was not only during school hours, but at anytime when she and I crossed paths. She was a caring, understanding, loving person who understood me better than anyone else did.

In ninth grade, the second teacher also taught me Latin and French. Suddenly, linguistics became an option in my life.

So, in conclusion, I really believe you do love the doctrine for the teacher's sake, but sometimes, you love the doctrine despite the teacher--as in my first example.

Love teacher, love his doctrine. I agree because my beloved teachers had no bad doctrines. Not like me (:

Sometimes we might be afraid that our teachers were wrong! We would not like to lessen their authority.

We loved the doctrine also for the teacher's sake... Teacher, though important, is just another variable in the whole equation.

You are quite right. My komsomol katechismus ended with the first sentence of Lenin( Three sources...):Marx's teaching is right, because it is righteous (uchenie Marksa spravedlivo, potomu csto ono verno). Quod erat demonstrandum.

that's quite true..wheather students like a school subject or not is usually due teachers, their teaching methods, and the way they treat their pupils. Teachers should be aware of the great reponsibility laying on their shoulders.

My Master told me once... decrees of wisdom are hidden and must be taken as a kind of bodily eminent domain. Who knows one?!

I loved Robinson Crusoe! Until he met Friday.
He lived 20+ years on an island. His daily life, the plans he made, the way he made clothing from skins, the shelter he erected, the trees which he planted... fascinating survival story!
After 20+ years alone, enter Friday: racism overdrive! I couldn't believe he saved this man's life, only to make a slave of him. Defoe is ruined for me forever. I know he was only echoing the way life was, centuries agoc but I can't get past it.

My take on this quote is that Defoe is making the point the children pretty much feigned love for whatever the doctrine the teacher was expatiating upon in order to placate the teacher... there was no real internal passion for the material.

My guess this effect has become ever worse as the likes of the Debt Money Monopolists (Rockefeller, for example) seized control of the American educational system and turned it into forced operant conditioned intellectual fealty to authority camps... with Rockefeller types financing the authority of their choosing.

Quote:
The son of a London butcher, and educated at a Dissenters' academy, he was typical of the new kind of man reaching prominence in England in the 18th cent.—self-reliant, industrious, possessing a strong notion of personal and moral responsibility.


He seems a man with little or no guile. This quote seems straightforward, to me. Another way to say that might be "Our respect for the teacher awoke genuine love for the subject he taught."

The doctrine smells well if it is supported with coffee.
