A Gem of a Book

I am revisiting this book savoring every word, gnawing on quotes that I read and re-read for I want to remember them forever.  This is one:

I am a teacher at heart, and there are moments in the classroom when I can hardly hold the joy.  When my students and I discover uncharted territory to explore, when the pathway out of a thicket opens up before us, when our experience is illumined by the lightning-life of the mind-then teaching is the finest work I know.

It is certainly hard to eloquently add to the above statement, and to adequately communicate how grateful I am to teach and continue to learn each day I breathe.
