Is the life I’m living the life that wants to live in me?  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Good teachers join self and subject and students in the fabric of life  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) God ain’t finished with any of us yet  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) As I teach, I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) You are much more likely to have a holy experience in a quiet, focused, and communal context than you are when you are being entertained.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) At its deepest level, I think teaching is about bringing people into communion with each other, with yourself as the teacher, and with the subject you are teaching.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Storytelling has always been at the heart of being human because it serves some of our most basic needs: passing along our traditions, confessing failings, healing wounds, engendering hope, strengthening our sense of community.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Wholeness does not mean perfection: it means embracing brokenness as an integral part of life  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Discovering vocation does not mean scrambling toward some prize just beyond my reach but accepting the treasure of true self I already posses  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Every good teacher and every good parent has somehow learned to negotiate the paradox of freedom and discipline. We want our children and our students to become people who think and live freely, yet at the same time we know that helping them become free requires us to restrict their freedom in certain situations  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Community cannot take root in a divided life. Long before community assumes external shape and form, it must be present as seed in the undivided self: only as we are in communion with ourselves can we find community with others. Community is an outward and visible sign of an inward and invisible grace, the flowing of personal identity and integrity into the world of relationships  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Afraid that our inner light will be extinguished or our inner darkness exposed, we hide our true identities from each other. In the process, we become separated from our own souls. We end up living divided lives, so far removed from the truth we hold within that we cannot know the ‘integrity that comes from being what you are  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) What passes for political realism may make for lively academic debates. But it often functions, ironically, as a tool of social control, rendering us passive with an analysis that overwhelms and paralyzes us  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) It is because as we are, our hearts are closed, and we cannot place the holy words in our hearts. So we place them on top of our hearts. And there they stay until, one day, the heart breaks and the words fall in  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) How easily we get trapped in that which is not essential - in looking good, winning at competition, gathering power and wealth - when simply being alive is the gift beyond measure.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) I have to say that I have been blessed with significant teachers at every stage of my life  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) A scholar is committed to building on knowledge that others have gathered, correcting it, confirming it, enlarging it.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) There is as much guidance in what does not and cannot happen in my life as there is in what can and does -- maybe more.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) In every story I have heard, good teachers share one trait: a strong sense of personal identity infuses their work.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Good teaching cannot be reduced to technique; good teaching comes from the identity and integrity of the teacher.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) A leader is a person who must take special responsibility for what’s going on inside of himself or herself ... lest the act of leadership create more harm than good.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) My favorite topping is one that a lot of people don’t like. I love anchovies.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) I am not sure that any sight or sound on earth is as exquisite as the hushed descent of a sky full of snow.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) The highest form of love is the love that allows for intimacy without the annihilation of difference.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Every young person needs some adult who’s just wild and crazy about them!  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Connection and connectedness are other words for community and communion  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Community doesn’t just create abundance - community is abundance. If we could learn that equation from the world of nature, the human world might be transformed.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) The past isn’t fixed and frozen in place. Instead, its meaning changes as life unfolds.  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) Mentors and apprentices are partners in an ancient human dance, and one of teaching’s great rewards is the daily chance it gives us to get back on the dance floor. It is the dance of the spiraling generations, in which the old empower the young with their experience and the young empower the old with new life, reweaving the fabric of the human community as they touch and turn  (Parker J Palmer Quotes) The ancient human question ‘Who am I?’ leads inevitably to the equally important question ‘Whose am I?’ - for there is no self outside of relationship  (Parker J Palmer Quotes)
