Some of the best inspirational life quotes come with reference to the teaching profession. As someone said – A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

Why? Because when you teach someone, you are investing your time in that person’s future, and you are leaving your influence on them for the rest of their life! And that’s rarely time ill-spent! Is it any wonder that teaching is considered a Noble Profession by many?
