It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

Translation of the quotation on a plaque in the astronomy building of Pasadena City College (the German inscription reads “Es ist die wichtigste Kunst des Lehrers, die Freude am Schaffen und am Erkennen zu wecken”). Einstein dedicated the building and its observatory on February 26, 1931, with a short speech, and also contributed the above words to be inscribed on the small bronze dedicatory plaque inside the building. The elaborate ceremony was attended by most Pasadena schoolchildren as well. See Pasadena Star News , February 26, 1931, and Pasadena Chronicle , February 27, 1931 (thanks to Dan Haley, Shelley Erwin, and Mane Hakopyan of PCC for these references and copies of the articles). It is not clear if these words are original to Einstein, as Dan Haley, research librarian at Pasadena City College, found a similar statement written by Anatole France in The Crime of Sylvestre Bonnard , part 2, chapter 4: “The art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of young minds for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards,” which, I discovered, dates back to 1881. No doubt other people have had the same thought through the centuries and the concept is not original to France, either. This sentence is also used as the epigram in Mein Weltbild (1934), 25, in the reprinting of Einstein’s dedication speech; here it is also not clear if these words are Einstein’s own or if he is using an unsourced quotation by someone else, but my feeling is they are his own. See also the next quotation, written three years later. *The most valuable thing a teacher can impart to children is not knowledge and understanding per se but a longing for knowledge and understanding, and an appreciation for intellectual values, whether they be artistic, scientific, or moral. Similar to the preceding quotation, but written for the National Council of Supervisors of Elementary Science in 1934.
