The Teacher You Remember...

In 1957, after winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, Albert Camus wrote a letter to his childhood teacher. In it, he wrote of the impact his teacher had on his life, and success as an author:

But when I heard the news, my first thought, after my mother, was of you. Without you, without the affectionate hand you extended to the small poor child that I was, without your teaching and example, none of all this would have happened.
