Contrary to popular wisdom, I think television is a great tool. I watch a lot of it. I am married to a director who is always doing research. Because we don’t have an active theatre scene in the country any more (something which bears discussion, but not now), he keeps his hand in and his mind tuned by watching the best television programmes he can. And I watch them with him.
Recently, one of the programmes we watch reminded me of a quotation that I’ve heard on occasion, but not enough to be always with me. It was this:
Good teachers instruct. Great teachers inspire.
I like that.
