TEACHING BY EXAMPLE
Teaching By Example is serving as a desirable model to others.
“Old people love to give good advice to console themselves for no longer being able to set a bad example.”
—François Duc De La Rochefoucauld Writer, Moralist
“The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards.”
—Anatole France Critic, Writer
“Teachers: two kinds: the kind that fill you with so much quail shot that you can't move and the kind that just give you a little prod from behind and you jump to the skies.”
—Robert Frost Poet
“Personally I do not resort to force - not even the force of law — to advance moral reforms. I prefer education, argument, persuasion, and above all the influence of example.”
—Rutherford Hayes 19th U.S. President
“It is not so much the example of others we imitate as the reflection of ourselves in their eyes and the echo of ourselves in their words.”
—Eric Hoffer Philosopher

At home, television, school, street, church. Every day we deal with different people in all that influence and are influenced, we must appreciate what we see and not to be taken away by bad examples.

Sometimes it is not that we go out of our way to teach somebody a good value but to just be there to lead them by being ourselves. Good habits as well as bad habits are enough to change someone’s life if we do our best to always be a good example then we should have nothing to worry about.
