Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 2 July 2021

It is their [second plane children’s] conscience that stands out most and of great interest is what is good, just or unjust. They have a keen feeling towards injustice. When the adult demands from the very young child something that he cannot give, it is always the seven-year-old that comes to his defence. The rebellion against injustice is general; it extends even to animals.

Maria Montessori, Citizen of the World, p. 39
