Excerpt from The Teacher's Ideals of Life and Happiness

The aim of this little book is to help my fellow teachers to think deeply about the serious aspects of human life. After spending twenty-five years of my life as a teacher, I have reached the conviction that what teachers most need is not more theory or more method, but a wider outlook, a clearer vision, and deeper convictions concerning matters of great importance to the lives of the children which the try to influence.

I have written as simply, as plainly, and as briefly as I could. I have not the least doubt about the truth or the importance of the principles which I have tried to emphasize. If these chapters, through the teachers who may read them, contribute in ever so small a way toward a larger life and greater possibilities and opportunities for children, I shall be happy.

The selections from Emerson and Bryant in Chapter III are printed with the permission of, and by special arrangement with, Houghton Mifflin Co., and D. Appleton and Co.
