The student aids the teacher


"Students increase the knowledge of the teacher, and broaden his heart [meaning, his understanding]....

"Just as a small piece of wood kindles a large piece, so even a student with little knowledge sharpens the teacher until he produces, via his questions, beautiful knowledge."

(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Torah Study 5:13)

Have a great day,
