Physics isn’t my scene – I’m more of an arts type of girl – but what a wonderful quote from Professor Avram Noam Chomsky, that surely can be applied elsewhere:

“If you’re teaching, say, physics, there’s no point in persuading a student that you’re right. You want to encourage them to find out what the truth is, which is probably that you’re wrong.”

It takes a brave teacher to allow someone else to point out that they might not be right … and also, the best teacher you may ever have.
