Well said...

"To be a schoolmaster is next to being a king. Do you count it lowly employment to imbue the minds of the young with the things of Christ and the best of literature and return them to their homes honest and virtuous persons? In the opinion of fools, it is a humble task; but in fact, it is the noblest of occupations." - Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536). Learn more about Erasmus here.

Erasmus is buried just 30 minutes from our place. Here I am standing beside his memorial column where he is buried in the cathedral in Basel, Switzerland. Eramus was a great Christian educator.
