Children learn more from what you are than what you teach.
~W.E.B. Du Bois
American civil rights activist and writer W. E. B. Du Bois (born February 23, 1868) impressed his teachers as a child. They encouraged him to pursue his studies, and through them, Du Bois realized he could use knowledge to empower his fellow African Americans. When he couldn’t afford to continue his education, the congregation of his childhood church raised the money to send him to college.
