This Guru Purnima, let our teacher know that we value and follow the teachings they have given us over the years. This Shloka from SkandaPurana tells us the importance of the Guru in one’s life. And how true it is, without a person who tells us how to do and what to do, we’d be just wandering directionless creatures.
Guru Purnima

गुरौ न प्राप्यते यत्तन्नान्यत्रापि हि लभ्यते।
गुरुप्रसादात सर्वं तु प्राप्नोत्येव न संशयः॥

Transliteration:
gurau na prāpyate yattannānyatrāpi hi labhyate।
guruprasādāta sarvaṃ tu prāpnotyeva na saṃśayaḥ॥
Hindi translation:
गुरु के द्वारा जो प्राप्त नहीं होता, वह अन्यत्र भी नहीं मिलता।
गुरु कृपा से निस्संदेह (मनुष्य​) सभी कुछ प्राप्त कर ही लेता है। 
English translation:
Whatever is not obtained from the Guru, cannot be obtained from elsewhere.
With the grace of the Guru one indeed gets everything.
