Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 1 December 2021

The child’s type of mind is an absorbing mind; it absorbs whatever is around it. An adult’s mind elaborates. We call the child’s mind the absorbent mind. It is a mind endowed with special psychic powers, which we lose later, because whatever we adults want to acquire we have to acquire with effort and fatigue.

Maria Montessori, The 1946 London Lectures, p. 65
