Excerpts from "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space

Teaching is an instinctual art, mindful of potential, craving of realizations, a pausing, seamless process, where one rehearses constantly while acting, sits as a spectator at a play one directs, engages every part in order to keep the choices open and the shape alive for the student, so that the student may enter in, and begin to do what the teacher has done: make choices. ~ A. Bartlett Giamatti, "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space


How we choose to believe and speak and treat others, how we choose a civic role for ourselves, is the deepest purpose of a liberal education and of the act of teaching. ~ A. Bartlett Giamatti, "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space


Every classroom is an act of making citizens in the realm of that room, and every room is a figure for the larger community. ~ A. Bartlett Giamatti, "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space


The very first choice teachers make . . . [is] to make themselves vulnerable, vulnerable to those others who are the future, in order to make what is made by the mind eternal. ~ A. Bartlett Giamatti, "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space


We are all teachers and students of ourselves. ~ A. Bartlett Giamatti, "To Make Oneself Eternal," from A Free and Ordered Space
