Nerd Notes Thought of the Day: Teaching and Teachers

"Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher."

Ain't that the truth? I've been in (more or less) diligent study for YEARS, but I can count on my fingers all the truly great teachers I've ever had.

The proverb is, I've been told, Japanese. (Can MM Blog's roving Japanese correspondent Ramblin' Ronin confirm or deny?)

I've never heard it, and the online references don't seem to have it. Doesn't mean it's not Japanese, of course.
