Thus Spake Leonard Bernstein:

"Teaching is probably the noblest profession in the world — the most unselfish, difficult, and honorable profession, but it is also the most unappreciated, underrated, underpaid, and under-praised profession in the world. And so today we are going to praise teachers." -Leonard Bernstein, Young People's Concerts: "A Tribute to Teachers", 1963
