Seite 105 - It is too late! Ah, nothing is too late Till the tired heart shall cease to palpitate.
Seite 238 - By primary groups I mean those characterized by intimate face-to-face association and co-operation. They are primary in several senses, but chiefly in that they are fundamental in forming the social nature and ideals of the individual. The result of intimate association, psychologically, is a certain fusion of individualities in a common whole, so that one's very self, for many purposes at least, is the common life and purpose of the group. Perhaps the simplest way of describing this wholeness is...
Seite 206 - What the best and wisest parent wants for his own child, that must the community want for all of its children. Any other ideal for our schools is narrow and unlovely ; acted upon, it destroys our democracy.
Seite 59 - To bring into closer relation the home and the school, that parents and teachers may cooperate intelligently in the training of the child, and to develop between educators and the general public such united efforts as will secure for every child the highest advantages in physical, mental, social, and spiritual education.
Seite 105 - CEdipus, and Simonides Bore off the prize of verse from his compeers, When each had numbered more than fourscore years, And Theophrastus, at fourscore and ten, Had but begun his Characters of Men.
Seite 336 - True; therefore doth Heaven divide The state of man in divers functions, Setting endeavor in continual motion ; To which is fixed, as an aim or butt, Obedience ; for so work the honey bees ; Creatures, that, by a rule in nature, teach The act of order to a peopled kingdom.
Seite 213 - When the school introduces and trains each child of society into membership within such a little community, saturating him with the spirit of service, and providing him with the instruments of effective selfdirection, we shall have the deepest and best guaranty of a larger society which is worthy, lovely, and harmonious.
Seite 213 - To do this means to make each one of our schools an embryonic community life, active with types of occupations that reflect the life of the larger society, and permeated throughout with the spirit of art, history, and science.
Seite 240 - Primary groups are primary in the sense that they give the individual his earliest and completest experience of social unity, and also in the sense that they do not change in the same degree as more elaborate relations, but form a comparatively permanent source out of which the latter are ever springing.
Seite 212 - The great thing to keep in mind, then, regarding the introduction into the school of various forms of active occupation is that through them the entire spirit of the school is renewed. It has a chance to affiliate itself with life, to become the child's habitat, where he learns through direct living instead of being only a place to learn lessons having an abstract and remote reference to some possible living to be done in the future.
