Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 12 January 2020

No one could have foreseen then that the child held within himself a secret of life, able to lift the veil from the mysteries of the human soul, that he represented an unknown quantity, the discovery of which might enable the adult to solve his individual and social problems. This aspect may prove the foundation of a new science of child study, capable of influencing the whole social life of man.

Maria Montessori, The Secret of Childhood, p. 4
