Memorable things a teacher has said.
« on: March 20, 2019, 11:32:07 PM »
Is there anything a teacher you've had said that comes to mind every once in a while? Serious and weighty, or humorous, or otherwise memorable?

I was just grading some Greek homework, and I was taken back to my Advanced Biblical Greek course in grad school and could hear, as clearly as if I were sitting around the table, Father animatedly saying to someone who translated μισθός as "reward" in 1 Cor 3:8, "It's not a 'reward'! It's condign payment!"
O unashamed intercessor of Christians, ever loyal advocate before the Creator, do not disregard the prayerful voice of sinners but in your goodness hasten to assist us who trustfully cry out to you: Intercede always, O Mother of God, in behalf of those who honor you!

After 4 years, one of my football coaches actually thought my first name was "Dammit!"
