Seite 28 - Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
Seite 274 - For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners.
Seite 254 - But man dieth, and wasteth away : Yea, man giveth up the ghost, and where is he ? As the waters fail from the sea, And the flood decayeth and drieth up : So man lieth down, and riseth not. Till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, Nor be raised out of their sleep.

Über den Autor (1861)

Born in Franklin, Massachusetts, and educated at Brown University, Horace Mann is considered the founder of U.S. public education because of his pioneering educational leadership. Although trained as a lawyer, he became interested in education while he was a member of the Massachusetts legislature. As a legislator, he promoted the lyceum movement, which resulted in a series of key legislative acts that often are considered the basis for the public educational system. When the Massachusetts Board of Education was established in 1837, Mann was appointed its secretary. Under his leadership the state mandated a minimum school year, raised teachers' salaries, and allocated state funds to improve school buildings and equipment. The spread of public schools led to a need for teachers, and, in response, Mann founded the first state normal schools in the United States. From 1848 to 1853, Mann served in the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1852, he became the first president of Antioch College, a position he held until 1859. While at Antioch, he demonstrated the advantages of coeducation and did much to raise the standards of the college. Mann's ground breaking work influenced education at various levels throughout the United States.
