Էջ 95 - In all things there lives and reigns an eternal law. This all-controlling law is necessarily based on an all-pervading, energetic, living, self-conscious, and hence eternal unity. This unity is God.
Էջ 96 - The day of days, the great day of the feast of life, is that in which the inward eye opens to the Unity in things, to the omnipresence of law: — sees that what is must be and ought to be, or is the best.
Էջ 43 - The young lambs are bleating in the meadows, The young birds are chirping in the nest, The young fawns are playing with the shadows, The young flowers are blowing toward the west : But the young, young children, O my brothers, They are weeping bitterly ! They are weeping in the playtime of the others, In the country of the free.
Էջ 127 - The Spirit of God hovered over chaos, and moved it; and stones and plants, beasts and man took form and separate being and life. God created man in his own image; therefore, man should create and bring forth like God.

Էջ 128 - God created man in his own image / therefore, man should create and bring forth like God. His spirit, the spirit of man, should hover over the shapeless, and move it that it may take shape and form, a distinct being and life of its own.

Էջ 103 - Losses which have taken place in the first stage of life, in which the heart-leaves — the germ-leaves of the whole being — unfold, are never made up. If I pierce the young leaf of the shoot of a plant with the finest needle, the prick forms a knot which grows with the leaf, becomes harder and harder, and prevents it from obtaining its perfectly complete form. Something similar takes place after wounds which touch the tender germ of the human soul and injure the heart-leaves of its being.
Էջ 165 - ... it a hard thing to require of the mother that she shall devote herself so closely to her child, that she shall give up society pleasures and even the dearer delights of study ? Let her remember that motherhood is her business now ! She has had schoollife, she has had society, she has had literature, she has had wifehood — now she is a mother, pledged by the sacredness and the infinite import of this new calling, to self-abnegation, to the highest good of the child to whom she stands as creator...
Էջ 166 - ... lamentations when he lifts up his voice on high, or, more beautiful, the sobbing child, — the face all liquid grief, as he tries to swallow his vexation, — soften all hearts to pity, and to mirthful and clamorous compassion. The small despot asks so little that all reason and all nature are on his side. His ignorance is more charming than all knowledge, and his little sins more bewitching than any virtue. His flesh is angels
Էջ 98 - Education should lead and guide man to clearness concerning himself and in himself, to peace with nature, and to unity with God; hence, it should lift him to a knowledge of himself and of mankind, to a knowledge of God and of nature, and to the pure and holy life to which such knowledge leads.
