Knowing The Sage

Mentor | Teacher |Philosopher

“I am the seeker for true knowledge and a constant learner who channelizes his/her learning for the benefit of others. I am the Guru. The source of my learning quenches others’ quest for knowledge.”

“We teachers are rather good at magic, you know,” said professor Mcgonnagal, one of the finest teachers at Hogwarts. The sage knows both the sides of the coin and remains calm. He believes in educating the world with his knowledge. He is a perfectionist and never settles for anything less than that. 

Professor McGonagall
