Pagina 298 - With a pennyworth of oil, you can make a handsome glossy thing of Quashee, when the soul is not killed in him ! A swift, supple fellow ; a merry-hearted, grinning, dancing, singing, affectionate kind of creature, with a great deal of melody and amenability in his composition.

Some few are going up, and carrying us up, heavenward ; calculated, I mean, to be of priceless advantage in teaching, — in forwarding the teaching of all generations. Others, a frightful multitude, are going down, down ; doing ever the more and the wider and the wilder mischief.
Pagina 343 - Name can have been, will, as the first and directest indication of all, search eagerly for a Portrait, for all the reasonable Portraits there are ; and never rest till he have made out, if possible, what the man's natural face was like. Often I have found a Portrait superior in real instruction to half-a-dozen written
Pagina 45 - In all ways it needs, especially in these times, to be proclaimed aloud that for the idle man there is no place in this England of ours. He that will not work, and save according to his means, let him go...
Pagina 392 - I believe you will find in all histories that that has been at the head and foundation of them all, and that no nation that did not contemplate this wonderful universe with an awe-stricken and reverential feeling that there was a great unknown, omnipotent, and all-wise, and all-virtuous Being, superintending all men in it, and all interests in it — no nation ever came to very much, nor did any man either, who forgot that.
Pagina 102 - Who would suppose that Education were a thing which had to be advocated on the ground of local expediency, or indeed on any ground ? As if it stood not on the basis of an everlasting duty, as a prime necessity of man!
