I know the lecturers try their best, but teaching is really not that easy. It should be informative, compact and easy to understand. But still, the key ingredient is to not make it boring! So, I thought of an application of Lincoln. Maybe the golden rule of teaching should be instead
You can bore all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot bore all the people all the time.
