Delphic Maxim of the Week 9.4
Νεώτερον δίδασκε - Teach a youngster
Good day everyone. This week’s Delphic Maxim is Νεώτερον δίδασκε - Teach a youngster.
“The attitude towards the young is: they need to be taught. That is the general seuse of the sentence. Youth needs to be taught. But there is also a personal meaning: it is good for one to become teacher and find pupils, to pass on what you have learned, intellectually but also through experience. In that way the chain of lore is passed on from generation to generation. The elder teach, the younger respect and learn. It is your obligation to teach, when you grow older, as it is the obligation of the young to learn from the older.”
