Teachers can shine rays of life in a fallen world. It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge. We all know that art is not truth. Art is the lie that makes us realize the truth. For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face (words inspired by Albert Einstein, Pablo Picasso and Paul of Tarsus).
