Stran 23 - God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
Stran 34 - Massachusetts enacted a law, as early as 1647, "that every township, after the Lord hath increased them to the number of fifty householders, shall appoint one to teach all the children to...
Stran 23 - For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
Stran 23 - And the eye cannot say unto the hand, "I have no need of thee:" nor again the head to the feet, "I have no need of you.
Stran 37 - No money shall be appropriated or drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious sect or society, theological or religious seminary; nor shall property belonging to the state be appropriated for any such purpose.

Stran 14 - On the same principle, it is equally plain that we can never succeed 'in perfecting our Highest Grade of Education, without perfecting the intermediate grade. To turn raw, undisciplined youth into Universities to study the Professions, to study the Learned Languages and the Higher Sciences, is a palpable absurdity. If they have not gone through A proper discipline in the Primary and Intermediate Schools, thev cannot be fitted for the University.
Stran 15 - As knowledge, from its nature, grows from simple elements; as the human mind, in its nature, grows from infancy and childhood; so a system of Education must spread out from the school of childhood, to the school of manhood ; from the Primary School to the University. In the development of a system of Education, we can no more stop short at the Primary School, or at the Intermediate School, than the growth of...
