Halaman 45 - Great princes' favorites their fair leaves spread But as the marigold at the sun's eye, And in themselves their pride lies buried, For at a frown they in their glory die.

Halaman 80 - But a few years ago she was at school, where her memory was crammed with words, and names, and dates, and her reflective faculties scarcely in the slightest degree exercised — where not one idea was given her respecting the methods of dealing with the opening mind of childhood ; and where her discipline did not in the least fit her for thinking out methods of her own.

If not — if the process is with one exception more complex than any in Nature, and the task of administering to it one of surpassing difficulty; is it not madness to make no provision for such a task ? Better sacrifice accomplishments than omit this all-essential instruction.
