"That man may last, but never lives.
Who all receives and nothing gives."
The thought that the richer fuller life comes to him who gives was in the mind of the President and the members of the faculty of the Oshkosh Normal School on that September day in 1871, v . hen the school was formally dedicated to its great purpose of preparing young people for the high calling of the teacher.
Because of this belief on the part of the faculty, the students who had come filled with the idea of receiving, departed fully persuaded that no one can live the abundant life who lives unto himself alone.
The aim of the school was to put first things first: to kindle
in each soul the will to help and the courage to do; to develop loyalty to the real things of life—not alone to the material, but to the spiritual as well.
The students were trained to walk in the straight and narrow way, for it is only by so doing that anyone will achieve an abiding success. The great scientist, the great teacher, the great preacher, the great physician, the great financier is the one who has trodden the narrow path which did not permit him to wander thoughtlessly, carelessly on as does the one who goes in at the wide gate and ambles aimlessly along in the broad way.
High ideals were kept ever before the students. The thought that they were going out to get. was balanced by the thought that they were going out to give. They were going to make this world a better world, a more beautiful world because they were going out to give of themselves.
The little band that gathered here in those early days was as the leaven which helped to leaven the whole lump, and because of these high ideals the school took its place among the foremost schools not only of the state but of the whole country.
Emily F. Webster
