Hi all,

A group of fellow students and myself are nearing the end of the educational year and we would like to thank the phyiscs teacher thas has been our guide for the past three years. The idea is to buy her a book as well as a pen with an engraved proverb that will express our gratitude. The problem is that it has to be short to fit on the pen... and we're having a bit of a hard time finding something both short and profound. The subject needs to be education, and teaching.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I guess my signature wouldn't be a good one?
Or maybe it would be extra good for a teacher ;)?
I guess the teacher might not take it as a compliment :P

Education Proverbs

I think we might end up borrowing something from the Book of Proverbs, seeing as she is religious too.

Thanks for your suggestions, I appreciate it.

Sorry, but I don't know any. I do have a suggestion for how you could go about obtaining some though. Why don't you search for it on Google or Ask Jeeves or one of those other search engines. Those are bound to help at least a little. Best of luck.

why don't we try "In Silent Praise to the one who struggled with us, to improve us"

..as 'silent praise' is appropriate, to a pen...'silent words' spoken, when read....

Hardly, dear.

Loosly translated, it's 'don't let the b*stards grind you down'.

I'd put something along the lines of:
I've had 73 different teachers since starting school and only thought enough of one to get them a pen. or 72 didn't get anything.
only more poetically

Thanks tribdog, but in fact we did give a pen to our history teacher last year.
