You come to school to be happy

Vía Presentation Zen … lecciones de la vida por unos "mocosos" de 10 años:
"Good teachers are like sculptors. They subtract to reveal what is already there. Bruce Lee once said: "It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential." This is one of the secrets to mastery, yet much of our work lives or school lives are spent on the unessential.

In the whole scheme of things, two years with a great teacher is a short time. Yet, usually we had even less time than that with those who helped us the most to discover what we had all along inside. Are not the best teachers, then, the ones who recognize the ephemerality of the time they have in each student's life, and instead of trying to fill their heads with as much information as possible, work to create a sense of community through engagement and participation that will help the student go on to learn far more on his/her own than they ever could do in a school? The great master Ueshiba Morihei (O-sensei) touches on a similar theme in his writings: "Instructors can impart only a fraction of the teaching. It is through your own devoted practice that the mysteries of the Art of Peace are brought to life."

Empatía "Let people live in your heart":

Mostrar "how precious life is". "You're blaming everyone but yourself":

"Please, speak up for him". "If one person is unhappy, everybody will be unhappy":

"There's no certainty in life":

"It's important to make an effort to make yourself understood and to understand others…":
