Teachers all around us

I may well have posted this quotation before but I just came across it again today and I think it deserves a repeat:

Whosoever may torment you, harass you, confound you, or upset you, is a teacher. Not because they're wise, but because you seek to become so.

-- Mike Dooley

This is very similar to the long term meditative principles of seeing enemies or difficult people as "precious teachers".
