My philosophy for life AND teaching is best said below  

"To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of 
the intelligent  people
and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure
the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the beauty in others;
to leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child,
a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that
one life has breathed easier 
because you lived here.
This is to have succeeded."

Ralph Waldo Emerson
