Thoughts, Sentences, and Teachers

A thought can be, first, a mental imitation of the relations between things and, second, a mental exploration of alternate relations between things.

A sentence is a verbal imitation of a thought.

This is not easy to understand for all of us (like me), but all learning and intellectual growth depends on it, if only practically. In other words, not everybody needs to understand it philosophically, but every teacher needs to act in a way consistent with it to be consistent.
