Audio Clip – Milt Brown on showing restraint
It's quite an—quite an event in somebody's life, I must say, to face a group of 75 to 100 people.
I soon learned that—I don't know that anybody else has ever said this, but it's certainly not, probably, that new to me, new with me alone, but I soon learned that I might be as smart as any one of them in the classroom, but I certainly wasn't as smart as the whole group. And the sooner you learn that the better. Because the minute you challenge the group in any way, by being self-important, you soon learned that the class was going to take your measure.
And I just had great respect for the students. And I think it was an exaggeration to say I loved them, but I did love what I was doing in the classroom with them.
