A Teacher: Lover of Souls

From Wisdom of the Desert:

Amma Theodora said, “A teacher should not be fooled by flattery, nor blinded by gifts, conquered by the stomach, nor dominated by anger. A teacher should be patient, gentle and humble as far as possible; successfully tested and without partisanship, full of concern and a lover of souls.”
