They are weeping in the playtime of the others, In the country of the free.
Էջ 130 - 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. This is the high meaning, the deep significance, the great purpose of work and industry, of productive and creative activity.

Էջ 106 - ... Therefore, you must keep holy the being of the child; protect it from every rough and rude impression, from every touch of the vulgar. A gesture, a look, a sound, is often sufficient to inflict such wounds. The child's soul is more tender and vulnerable than the finest or tenderest plant. It would have been far different with humanity if every individual in it had been protected in that tenderest age as befitted the human soul which holds within itself the divine spark. " The first impressions...
Էջ 110 - ... more vigilantly look for likenesses. The beginning of philosophy is the study of differences, but we climb to that beautiful Olympus where simple and essential Truths reside, the heaven of all the other spheres of knowledge, by comparing, and deducing resemblances; just as we rise in moral and religious life by seeking and valuing Christianity above sectarianism.
Էջ 107 - ... steadily, and during the whole period of childhood, body and mind should be exercised and cultivated together. The mind develops itself in and with the organs that are inseparably connected with it in the earthly life. Child's play strengthens the powers both of the soul and of the body, provided we know how to make the first selfoccupation of a child a freely active, that is. a creative or a productive cue.
