Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 30 May 2020

An inner change has taken place, but nature is quite logical in arousing now in the child not only a hunger for knowledge and understanding, but a claim to mental independence, a desire to distinguish good from evil by his own powers, and to resent limitation by arbitrary authority. In the field of morality, the child now stands in need of his own inner light.

Maria Montessori, To Educate the Human Potential, p. 4
