John Carmody, The Progressive Pilgrim
“Teaching, like study, is clearly both formal and informal. The parent can lecture as much as the professor. The grandparent can be concerned with the little one’s souls as much as the priest. Even friends and peers are teachers. They push and prod our clay, leave considerable impact on our meaning, our reality. Like it or not, each day we are lectured by a variety of informal professors on the ways of the world, both for good and for bad.”
