Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.
“We have to be striving to be the people that we need to be, and then we just need to love our students, and … you can’t fake that. Either you do or you don’t; and if you do, you walk into the classroom, and the sharing—of who you are, and the effort that goes with it, and the openness, and everything that has to be there—will be there. And the students will trust you; they’ll open up their hearts and minds to be taught both the information and the more spiritual aspects of it.
“You know, you can put together a long list of things [we should be doing], but unless (1) we’re striving to be who we need to be, and (2) we truly do love our students, I don’t know how much good the rest of the list does you.”
