Read simplicity for humility

, March 7, 2011 at 6:40pm

As a teacher, nothing excited me more than seeing a sunshine of understanding flash across my sudents' faces. Nothing brightened my day better than the sparkle in thier eyes. I knew that the royal arrogance of my thoughts must always be made subservient to the need for a sublime humility in expression. Read simplicity for humility. I owe it to my students that today I generally don't fail to understand my own thoughts. That is the beginning of making these understandable for others. Considers the astounding range of truth in words as simple as these from Blake:

"A robin red-breast in a cage

Sets all the heavens in a rage"
