Can quotes inspire learning?

I came across a quote link when I was reading through a blog I had found on the “School of Instructor Facebook Page”. The following quote really challenged my view of my role as instructor because “awakening joy” seems out of my specified job description yet thinking about this, it would seem to be the magic tool for learning. I know when I enjoy something, the task becomes meaningful and completely changes my approach.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge”

-Albert Einstein
