CAUTION IN WRITING AND TEACHING.  Whoever has once begun to write and felt the passion of writing in himself, learns from almost everything he does or experiences only what is communicable for a writer.  He no longer thinks of himself but rather of the writer and his public.  He wants insight, but not for his own use.  Whoever is a teacher is usually incapable of doing anything of his own for his own good.  He always thinks of the good of his pupils, and all new knowledge gladdens him only to the extent that he can teach it.  Ultimately he regards himself as a thoroughfare of learning, and in general as a tool, so that he has lost seriousness about himself.
