Página 29 - Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee Jest, and youthful Jollity, Quips, and cranks,* and wanton* wiles, Nods, and becks, and wreathed smiles, Such as hang on Hebe's cheek, And love to live in dimple sleek; Sport that wrinkled Care derides, And Laughter holding both his sides.
Página 79 - Those who have been brought up under the ordinary school-drill, and have carried away with them the idea that education is practicable only in that style, will think it hopeless to make children their own teachers. If, however, they •will call to mind that the all-important knowledge of surrounding objects which a child gets in its early years is got without...
Página 97 - Were once but deserts ; — culture's hand Has scattered verdure o'er the land, And smiles and fragrance rule* serene, Where barren wilds usurped the scene. And such is man.

Parents should do all but impoverish themselves, to induce such to become the guardians and guides of their children.
Página 88 - An hour of solitude passed in sincere and earnest prayer, or the conflict with, and conquest over a single passion or ' subtle bosom sin,' will teach us more of thought, will more effectually awaken the faculty, and form the habit, of reflection, than a year's study in the Schools without them.
Página 78 - ... the facts in his memory in a way that no mere information heard from a teacher, or read in a school-book, can be registered.

Observe again, that this discipline necessitates a continuous •organization of the knowledge he acquires. It is in the very nature of facts and inferences, assimilated in this normal manner, that...
