Sivu 79 - I do not mean to cast any reflection upon any sect or person whatsoever; but, as there is such a multitude of sects, and such a diversity of opinion amongst them, I desire to keep the tender minds of the orphans, who are to derive advantage from this bequest, free from the excitement which clashing doctrines and sectarian controversy are so apt to produce.
Sivu 6 - ... its muscles. The first eight or ten years of life should be devoted to the • education of the heart, to the formation of principles, rather than to the acquirement of what is usually termed knowledge.
Sivu 6 - When the studies of maturer years are stuffed into the head of a child, people do not reflect on the anatomical fact, that the brain of an infant is not the brain of a man ; that the one is confirmed, and can bear exertion, — the other is growing, and requires repose ; — that to force the attention to abstract facts —to load the memory with chronological and historical or scientific detail— in short, to expect a child's brain to bear with impunity the exertions of a man's — is...
Sivu 40 - ... alone. There must be authority. The pupils may not often feel it. But they must know that it is always at hand, and the pupils must be taught to submit to it, as to simple authority. The subjection of the governed to the will of one man, in such a way that the expression of his will must be the final decision of every question, is the only government that will answer in school or in family. A government not of persuasion, not of reasons assigned, not of the will of the majority, but of the will...
Sivu 19 - What good influence is it expected to have on the child's moral condition, or more properly its heart ? That of awakening it to, and confirming it in, moral and social attachments. What good consequences can result to the Parents from it, in a moral or physical respect ? In a physical point...
Sivu 6 - THERE are two classes to whom the truth, that the mind influences the body, and, through the body, operate* on itself, ought to be a subject of serious consideration — public men, and parents. The circumstances which environ the former, are singularly adapted to strike at once, at the body and the mind, and require therefore the utmost watchfulness to oppose their action. While the brain and the heart are oppressed by incessant labor and anxiety, the functions of the stomach and alimentary canal,...
Sivu 12 - Children, and very young children, too, are kept, for many hours daily, in a state as nearly motionless, as it is possible for the masters to produce. The time devoted to amusement is much too little. Instead of two or three hours a day being allowed for play, only two or three hours a day should be devoted to. confinement and labor.* To fix a child in a particular posture for hours, is vile tyranny, and a cruel restraint on nature. The practice in Infant Schools is admirable ; for here, the muscles...
Sivu 6 - ... the other is growing, and requires repose ; that to force the attention to abstract facts, to load the memory with chronological and historical or scientific detail — in short, to expect a child's brain to bear with impunity the exertions of a man': is just as rational as it would be to hazard the same sort of experiment upon its muscles.
Sivu 48 - The pupils rise at four o'clock, woik three hours and study ten. I have looked over an account which has been kept with twenty students during the last quarter, and they are credited for earnings in coopering, joiner's work and printing, a sum amounting to a trifle short of all the charges against them.
Sivu 18 - ... in whose education, at least in their earlier years, there should be no difference. Indeed, if we consider the great and powerful influence females have on society ; if we look forward to that period when they shall become mothers, to whom the important office of developing the hearts and minds of their tender offspring, in their first opening, most properly and immediately belongs, we must admit that it is not only requisite that their own hearts should be morally and religiously habituated...
