Sivu 50 - The man who cannot use books iu our day has not learned the lesson of selfhelp, and the wisdom of the race is not likely to become his. He will not find, in this busy age, people who can afford to stop and tell him by oral instruction what he ought to be able to find out 'for himself by the use of the library that may be within his reach.
Sivu 48 - To improve, by reading, his morals and faculties. "4. To understand his duties to his neighbors and country, and to discharge with competence the functions confided to him by either. "5. To know his rights; to exercise with order and justice those he retains; to choose with discretion the fiduciary of those he delegates; and to notice their conduct with diligence, with candor and judgment. "6. And, in general, to observe with intelligence and faithfulness all the social relations under which he shall...
Sivu 48 - To give to every citizen the information he needs for the transaction of his own business. "2. To enable him to calculate for himself, and to express and preserve his ideas, his contracts and accounts in writing. "3. To improve, by reading, his morals and faculties.
Sivu 50 - He will not find in this busy age, people who can afford to stop and tell him by oral instruction what he ought to be able to find out for himself by the use of the library that may be within his reach. Oral instruction, except as an auxiliary to the text-book — except as an incitement to the pupil's interest and a guide to his self-activity and independent investigation in the preparation of his next lesson — is a great waste of the teacher's energy and an injury to the pupil. The pupil acquires...
Sivu 52 - I pray you hear my song of a boat, For it is but short: — My boat, you shall find none fairer afloat, In river or port. Long I looked out for the lad she bore, On the open desolate sea, And I think he sailed to the heavenly shore, For he came not back to me — Ah me!
Sivu 48 - To instruct the mass of our citizens in these, their rights, interests and duties, as men and citizens, being then the objects of education in the primary schools, whether private or public, in them should be taught reading, writing and numerical arithmetic, the elements of mensuration (useful in so many callings), and the outlines of geography and history.
Sivu 17 - I know no elementry branch, into which more life and interest can be put, than the writing. It gives children something real to do. It is visible. Above all it can be read. A child's first writing is to him truly wonderful. Do not confuse the child's mind with theoretical analysis, nor give him fragments of letters to write. The favorite method of teaching seems to be...
Sivu 50 - One great object of the school in our time is to teach the pupil how to use books — how to get out for himself what there is for him in the printed page. The man who cannot use books...
Sivu 14 - There are gains for all our losses There are balms for all our pain: But when youth, the dream, departs, It takes something from our hearts, And it never comes again. We are stronger, and are better, Under manhood's sterner reign: Still we feel that something sweet Followed youth, with flying feet, And will never come again. Something beautiful is vanished, And we sigh for it in vain: We behold it everywhere, On the earth, and in...
Sivu 17 - Children like to talk, and next to talking comes this wonderful sign-language, writing. Let the little folks write often to learn to write, as you let them talk often to learn to talk, and read often to learn to read. But when you hear them talk or read, you are ready to prompt them, so they will not fall into wrong practice. They need just the same care on your part when they write. Watch their fingers.
