“The skilled teacher, when a pupil is entrusted to his care, will first of all seek to discover his ability and natural disposition and will next observe how the mind of his pupil is to be handled … for in this respect there is an unbelievable variety, and types of  mind are no less numerous than types of body.”

Quintillian, Ancient Rome
