' Being the student '...

The difficulty in the spiritual path is always what comes
from ourselves.

A person does not like to be a pupil, he
likes to be a teacher.

If one only knew that the greatness
and perfection of the great ones who have come from
time to time to this world was in their being pupils and
not in teaching!

The greater the teacher, the better pupil
he was.

He learned from everyone, the great and the
lowly, the wise and the foolish, the old and the young.

He learned from their lives, and studied human nature
in all its aspects.

- Hazrat Inayat Khan
