: I need an author for, "Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition."

"Teaching is not a lost art but the regard
for it is a lost tradition. Hence tomorrow's problem will not be to
get teachers, but to recognize the good ones and not discourage them
before they have done their stint."

Jacques Barzun, Teacher in
America (Boston, 1945), p. 12.
