THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE

factured cloth like everyone else in town, but he was a theorist. He had developed some very subtle ideas about the weaving of wool, which was dangerous, had put them into practice, which was culpable, and had thus ruined his father and himself. Declared bankrupt, he had studied for a fellowship in mathematics, had passed the examination, and was teaching geometry and elementary algebra at Elbeuf. My father, who had a high regard for my other professors, showed hostility and distrust whenever I talked to him about Mouchel. A business failure seemed to him a poor preparation for the high calling of teacher. A man who did not know how to make cloth couldn't be expected to know how to teach.
But my father and all Elbeuf were mistaken. Mouchel explained the first books of geometry to us with admirable clarity.
`Hein? Do you understand? Do you understanda' he would ask us, his piece of chalk in his hand, and he wouldn't let us go until we did understand. Thanks to him I still know most of the definitions and demonstrations in Euclid. More important still, he gave us a method of procedure. He who goes steadily, step by step, finds everything easy; he who suddenly attempts, after squandering years, to make up lost time by frantic effort, finds everything impossible. The mind, like the heart, is formed early and many of us remain all our lives what our childhood made us. `Hein? Do you understand? Do you understand?' Thanks to little Mouchel of the moist moustache and the chalk-covered vest, we learned to reason.
What he was incapable of teaching us was to challenge reason. But another and greater was to see to that.
