Selected Quotes from The Child, Society and the World

...the great hope for education is to help the little young humanity which is in our hands.
Maria Montessori
The Child, Society and the World, p. 81
We must give the child relaxation from the continuous direction of adults. So we give them the right environment, relaxation and freedom from orders. This is an indirect treatment; it is not the correction of the individual but the preparation for a new life. This is something children have never had, even in the grandest and richest of homes. For even in a palace, you find that the children are relegated to some obscure nursery.
Maria Montessori
The Child, Society and the World, p. 78
