|When a superior man knows the causes                                                                                                           |
|which make instruction successful, and those                                                                                                   |
|which make it of no effect, he can become a teacher of others.                                                                                 |
|Thus in his teaching, he leads and does not drag;                                                                                             |
|he strengthens and does not discourage;                                                                                                       |
|he opens the way but does not conduct to the end                                                                                               |
|without the learner's own efforts.                                                                                                             |
|Leading and not dragging produces harmony.                                                                                                     |
|Strengthening and not discouraging makes attainment easy.                                                                                     |
|Opening the way and not conducting to the end makes the learner thoughtful.                                                                   |
|He who produces such harmony, easy attainment, and thoughtfulness, may be pronounced a skilful teacher.                                       |

|The mediocre teacher tells.                                           |Tell me, I forget.                                                     |
|The good teacher explains.                                             |Show me, I remember....
