Teachers who establish a relationship of unconditional acceptance and respect with students are at a great advantage. Students in the presence of teachers who fill this basic need (i.e., validation of their worth) tend to put forth the extra effort to maintain their expectations, as well as their relationship with the teachers.

There is a physical component to falling in love — the butterflies in your stomach, the roller coaster in your soul — then there’s an equal physical component to falling out of love. It feels like your lungs are sieves, so you can’t get enough air. Your insides freeze solid. Your heart becomes a tiny, bitter pearl, a chemical reaction to one irritating grain of truth.
