Martin Luther on Education

“If I could leave the preaching office and my other duties, or had to do so, there is no other office I would rather have than that of schoolmaster or teacher … for I know that next to that of preaching, this is the best, greatest, and most useful office there is … It surely has to be one of the supreme virtues on earth faithfully to train other people’s children….” ~ From Martin Luther on Education (thanks Jerng for the link)

I’ve been telling people if I’m not a pastor, apart from the secret ambition to be a movie director (now no secret!), I would have enjoyed being a teacher or lecturer of some sort (at least in high school or college/university level).
