"Let him...linger pleasantly over the history of a single man, a short period, until he thinks the thoughts of that man, is at home in the ways of that period.

Charlotte Mason (Vol. I, Part XVIII --Hostiry, p. 280
"All children have it in them to recite; it is an imprisoned gift waiting to be delivered."
Charlotte Mason (Vol. I, Part VII --Recitation, p. 223)
"I think we owe it to children to let them dig their knowledge, of whatever subject, for themselves out of the fit book; and this for two reasons: What a child digs for is his own possession; what is poured into his ear, like the idle song of a pleasant singer, floats out as lightly as it came in, and is rarely assimilated."
Charlotte Mason (Vol. III, Chapter 16 How to Use School-Books, p. 177)
"We see, then, that the children's lessons should provide material for their mental growth, should exercise the several powers of their minds, should furnish them with fruitful ideas, and should afford them knowledge, really valuable for its own sake, accurate, and interesting, of the kind that the child may recall as a man with profit and pleasure."
Charlotte Mason (Vol. I, Part V Lessons As Instruments of Education, p. 177)
