Paul Theobald & Wendell Berry

Paul Theobald

Paul Theobald admits he's tired of the pressure to remain rootless in order to "go far" in his teaching career. Wendell Berry names this cost of this pressure:

"That teaching is a long-term service, that a teacher's best work may be published in the children or grandchildren of his students, cannot be considered, for the modern educator, like his "practical" brethren in business and industry, will honor nothing that he cannot see."
