Stran 212 - Denn eben wo Begriffe fehlen, Da stellt ein Wort zur rechten Zeit sich ein.
Stran 303 - The end then of learning is to repair the ruins of our first parents by regaining to know God aright, and out of that knowledge to love him, to imitate him, to be like him, as we may the nearest by possessing our souls of true virtue, which being united to the heavenly grace of faith, makes up the highest perfection.
Stran 305 - But the truth is, that the knowledge of external nature, and the sciences which that knowledge requires or includes, are not the great or the frequent business of the human mind.

Stran 40 - Charondas, and thence to all the Roman edicts and tables with their Justinian, and so down to the Saxon and common laws of England, and the statutes.
Stran 76 - As the strength of the body lies chiefly in being able to endure hardships, so also does that of the mind.
Stran 230 - To prepare us for complete living is the function which education has to discharge ; and the only rational mode of judging of any educational course is, to judge in what degree it discharges such function.
Stran 23 - First, let him teach the child cheerfully and plainly the cause and matter of the Letter ; then let him construe it into English, so oft as the child may easily carry away the understanding of it; lastly, parse it over perfectly.
