The only teacher who is worth anything to you is your enemy.

After many conversations tonight about stupid things, really, a lot more of it has had to do with toppings for taco salad and variances in theology; I come to the idea that the person who will teach you the most in life is the person who directly opposes you. Groups of students to teachers, Mano a Mano a la Mujer, Mano a Mano a la job, driver to demanding passenger, you vs annoying guy in grocery store line, Sox vs. Yankees, flat mates.

The person that provides us with the most discomfort has a strong correlation to the strongest lessons that we can learn.
