Another lovely quote, this time about teachers

I have just read this lovely quote from Goethe.  I give it in German first, for those amongst my readers who understand German:  "Er hat gelernt, er kann uns lehren."  "Only he who has learnt can teach us." 

We can indeed only learn from those who themselves have truly learned - a rare breed, I'm afraid.  There are many people who teach who have never done their learning at the deepest level.
