The lovely and serene Martine Leavitt said something that really struck me. She said that books come and go, but mentoring others leaves a lasting legacy. And she should know. A number of Martine's students have gone on to write books of their own, including Matthew Kirby whose book Icefall I recently recommended here.
It provided me with a new way at looking at teaching--a perspective that I needed.
Thank you, Martine!
