quotable: Prosser on Teaching

"I think teaching is rather like herding sheep.  You run around behind the students and bark at their heels, and head off the ones that start for the hilltops, and after a while, if you create enough commotion, they move down the valley and arrive at a destination without ever knowing how they got there.  Of course whether it's the right destination is another question, and there is always somebody who wants to argue about that."

Prosser, Lighthouse No Good, 1 Journal of Legal Education 257, 264-65 (1948).
