Discussing quote:

The true teacher defends his pupils against his own personal influence. He inspires self-distrust. He guides their eyes from himself to the spirit that quickens him. He will have no disciple.

If it is true..how few "true" teachers we have today. Most try to push there own personal philosophy and agenda on their students whether that be left or right based

Personally I think some of the pronouns are in the wrong place. You need to read some books by John Holt to understand this meaning or what I think it means (blame it on the pronouns). I would not want to inspire self distrust but would work towards the opposite. Frank C.
