"The teacher who walks in the shadow of his[her] temple, among [his] her followers, gives not of his [her] wisdom but rather of his [her] lovingness. If s/he is indeed wise, s/he does not bid you enter the house of his[her] wisdom. but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind" [Kahil Gibran]
