Stran 20 - There lives more faith in honest doubt, Believe me, than in half the creeds.
Stran 194 - He was bred to the law, which is, in my opinion, one of the first and noblest of human sciences ; a science which does more to quicken and invigorate the understanding than all the other kinds of learning put together ; but it is not apt, except in persons very happily born, to open and to liberalize the mind exactly in the same proportion.
Stran 360 - Let us (said He) pour on him all we can. Let the world's riches, which dispersed lie, Contract into a span. So strength first made a way, Then beauty flowed, then wisdom, honour, pleasure. When almost all was out, God made a stay, Perceiving that alone of all His treasure Rest in the bottom lay.

Stran 255 - American people toward public education as a prime necessity of national life, for which hardly any expenditure can be too great; and next, its eminently practical and popular character.

But what has been the character of the examinations? Almost invariably they have been such as to require the reproduction of learning, not original effort.
Stran 13 - No. 500. the occasion of my former visit— and the impression was confirmed during my recent visit— that the boy in America is not being brought up to punch another boy's head or to stand having his own punched in a healthy and proper manner ; that there is a strange and indefinable feminine air coming over the men; a tendency towards a common, if I may so call it, sexless tone of thought.
Stran xxiii - American prosperity, during the last quarter of a century education lias had a powerful and far-reaching influence; and it cannot be doubted that, in the future, it will become more and more the cause of industrial and commercial progress and of national wellbeing.
