Sucher on Said

(If you are a soccer fan, that could sound like Sukor on side. Ignore.)

David Sucher has a fascinating recollection of having been taught by Edward Said, and having been told by him about how to answer someone who seems to have all the answers.

Good teachers are sometimes forgotten at once. You learn what he's teaching you, and completely forget that it was he who taught you.

And good teachers are sometimes remembered forty years later.

As these people say, teaching comes in many forms.
