To Kindle Fire

“Today, it is also considered a defect for a teacher to think his or her goal is only to supply the mind of the student with pieces of information, facts, and formulas, and to make it like a pool which is filled with a certain amount of water. The goal of teaching must be higher and that is to train and grant independence to the mental faculty of the learner and revitalize his power of innovation. That is, the teacher’s job is actually to kindle fire.” ~ Murtada Mutahhari (1920-79)
